I became interested in coding during my bachelor’s degree in music composition. I found coding a great way to explore interesting methods for sound generation and synthesis. I became passionate about Max/MSP, a modular sound programming environment. I later learned JavaScript and C++ and worked on various game ideas. I am now interested in educational game design, concealed rules strategy games and discovery games. My best project so far is a robotic sculpture programmed to make movements based on pre-recorded music. I began teaching because I love to see children collaborating in order to solve complex problems. Children like being challenged and they like having the freedom to express their creative ideas. This is important to me because it encourages critical thinking, breaking down complex problems in simple steps, planning and strategizing. Coding teaches you how to think.

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.
