Krystof, Expert Teacher

Dual degree European Social and Political Studies, UCL and SciencesPo Paris; MSt in Study of Religions, University of Oxford

I’ve always loved being around children and playing with them, and teaching allows me to combine that with passing knowledge which will be extremely useful to them in the future. I love seeing how excited the students are about coding and about going through the whole creative process of creating a game or a website.

I first started coding when I was about 12 years old. I remember browsing the shelves of a municipal library and stumbling randomly on this very thin book called “Create your own website in HTML” (or something along those lines). I started there and then continued teaching myself combining books and online resources. It was a long way to learn how to create a full, interactive, professionally looking website but I enjoyed the excitement of creating something from scratch all by myself. It was really fulfilling and it opened a door to a completely new world for me. I believe that learning how to code is crucial in today’s world; understanding the logic behind computers is absolutely crucial in a world which is controlled by algorithms, even if they choose not to pursue a career in IT. Coding is a great exercise for the mind! It is a logic-driven environment which will have the students develop essential skills and a way of thinking that will be useful not only in Informatics but also in Math, Chemistry, or Physics.

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.
