Learning to code is an empowerment. When we are transforming an abstract idea to a concrete product / service, it is not about how advanced the technology is, it is more about how we can make the technology more accessible and solve problems with creativity, so it can be helpful to enhance our living quality.

Since I learnt coding I’ve created projects like Menstrual Cycle Reminder (with a temperature sensor) and Karaoke X Tuner (detecting how bad your singing is.) Although they are not working like a real-life product, it built up my research and analytical skills throughout the whole experimental process and now I am working on my own collaborative project to create a mono-material rehabilitation tool for stroke patients. When I’m teaching I find joy in contributing my skills and sharing my knowledge with others. My top tip for coders would be to be patient and you will learn most through experimentations and failures.

Policies

Rescheduling lessons

If you need to reschedule a lesson for any reason, please give us at least 24 hours notice by either contacting your tutor or a member of our team at hello@blueshiftcoding.com and we will do our best to move the session for you.

If your child is feeling unwell, we might be able to reschedule your lesson up to 2 hours before the lesson is supposed to start for online tuition, and up to 4 hours before the lesson is due to start for in-person tuition.

Missing a lesson

Please be aware that if you miss a lesson for any reason and do not give us at least 24 hours notice we will take this as a no-show and charge you the full rate of this session without an opportunity to reschedule, as we must compensate our tutors for their time.
