I started coding in school, studying Computer Science for GCSE and for the International Baccalaureate. I’d always loved puzzles (particularly killer sudokus) so I was drawn to the logical break down of coding. I find it soothing that if you get stuck on one part you can often break that down further into more manageable parts. I’m really loving physical sculptures at the moment and recently made a mechanical blooming flower that I coded to open and close using an arduino.

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.

FAQs:

  • Can I have tuition with more than one child at a time?
  • How often can I have sessions?
  • Is my child the right age for tutoring?
