As a musician, I have always been fascinated by the role of technology in the arts. That is why I decided I wanted to study a degree that mixes subjects such as music arranging and pure coding. My coolest projects so far are definitely a Mario style platformer game, and an interactive music touch board that I built with a raspberry Pi and a conductive ink pen. I began teaching because I think the power and accessibility of technology makes it a great tool that anyone can use to express themselves. I believe that every kid should have the opportunity to learn the basics of coding, for a better future! Having even a basic knowledge of any coding language will shape the society of the future to better understand the ethics behind new technologies, as well as to assess their benefits and risks.

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.
