I think it’s important to teach people (especially kids) to be creators, and not simply consumers, of technology. The more technologically savvy and questioning children are, the better they will be equipped with safely navigating the tech world out there. Also it’s so much fun I don’t think anyone should miss out on this exciting journey.

Before the pandemic I created interactive installations that encouraged people to play and forget about their worries. Then covid happened and like everyone else I was stuck indoors, with my laptop as a means of entertainment - I began to explore how I could move my practice to the digital sphere. I started self-learning coding during lockdown following years of music production. I would like to create games and VR environments that are diverse and safe for everybody to use! I would also love to inspire children to see computing as a tool for unbound and innovative creativity. It’s very rewarding to see children become more confident day by day, and exciting to think about what fantastic things they can create in the future. I believe perseverance is key. It will work out in the end. Also take breaks. And don’t forget to ask for help.

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.
