Detailed information

What is it?

Our online version of private tuition takes our incredibly popular face-to-face service and adapts it for the digital world! With experienced tutors and a unique coding curriculum, each hour-long online tuition session is tailored to your child to fit their programming passions.

Following our UCL EDUCATE award winning curriculum, as well as a rough lesson outline, each tutor will tailor lesson content to each of their students - giving each child the time to grow at their own pace. Every lesson will explore key coding concepts and our tutors will work with each student to develop hands-on practical programming projects and follow-up content.

What does a typical session look like?

Fifteen minutes before your session your tutor will send you a link reminding you to log in. At the start of the lesson your tutor will introduce themselves to your child and get to know their interests. They might then be given a series of challenges to solve over the course of the lesson. At the end of the session, your tutor will present you with a short write up of everything your child covered along with a link to any homework that was given. Finally, you will have a few minutes at the end of the session to discuss what happened over the last hour and, if you wish, to schedule any future tutor sessions.

What do I need to do?

Booking a trial lesson and your tutoring package is easy! 

  1. Choose the tutor level, date, and time for your trial session from the drop down menu, following which you will be prompted to enter your details into our form. 
  2. Once we have this information we will then match you with a tutor that fits your requirements in preparation for your trial. 
  3. Having matched you with a tutor we will send you all the information about your upcoming session, including instructions for setting up our conferencing software and any coding platforms. 
  4. After your child's first digital coding lesson we will send you more information about booking one of our packages, and if you’d like to continue we then schedule a weekly session in the same time slot as your trial.

If you do decide to continue coding with us after your trial we offer two different payment options: you can either book a block of five lessons or a block of ten. These sessions are scheduled daily and we recommend a session at the same time each day for consistency. Daily bookings and other flexible options are available; contact us to discuss your availability and for information on how to book these.

What are the technical requirements?

We ask that every student has access to a laptop or computer with a high-speed internet connection, a webcam, a headset/earphones, and a microphone. Before each session we will provide instructions on setting up our video conference software as well as any further information about relevant coding platforms and technical requirements for that particular session.

What is the cancellation policy? 

We understand that life happens and plans can change. We kindly ask that you contact your tutor or one of our team at least 24 hours in advance of a lesson if you need to reschedule it for any reason. 

If you do not provide 24 hours notice, we will charge the usual session rate, as our tutors must be paid for their time!
