Johanna, Senior Teacher

BSc Digital Arts Computing, University of London

Much of what I am teaching students today are things that I wish that I had the opportunity to learn when I was younger - to have an understanding for how technology works is essential today and coding gives children the confidence to feel like they can turn their ideas into reality and create something that is entirely their own. I love being a part of that process.

Before I started university I had never done any coding except for some very basic HTML during the early online blogging era. I had studied Fine Art previously and was used to working with a lot of digital photography and video editing, and coding felt like a perfect way to expand my creative practice. Now it is an essential part of the art I make and I feel like it has changed the way I work and understand things in a really positive way!

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.
