Sara, Teacher

Bsc Information Management for Business, University College London; MSc Child Development, University of Oxford

I volunteered as a teacher during my year-long internship in Silicon Valley. The students’ curiosity and realisation that they could build anything was amazing to witness. That inspired me to run STEM workshops in East Africa and the feedback was incredible. Young children who had never used computers before, learnt basic coding and would tell me they want to become engineers.

I completed a Computer Science summer school at UCL during my sixth form and studied some computer science courses during my undergraduate degree. Since then, I’ve built my own website and a passion for hardware (physical computing). I think learning to code is useful for preparing children for the future job market but, more than that, coding is a tool to create and build solutions and the world you want to live in.

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.
