Yasmin, Teacher

BSc Digital Arts Computing, Goldsmiths University of London

I love the knowledge exchange involved in teaching, learning as much from students as they learn from me. While still in school in China, I tutored students English and found a knack for mentoring with a charity called Debate Mate, where I volunteered to teach primary-school students debating skills. Guiding a student into understanding a concept is a rewarding experience and I share their joy when they persevere in learning something new!

Foremost an artist and designer, I have always wanted to understand the inner-working of things, whether a social phenomenon or a lego masterpiece. I taught myself web design with HTML and CSS at 15, however, I only got thrown into the deep end of coding when I started university. Catching up on Javascript and C++ was a challenge, but I thoroughly enjoyed the never-ending learning. Code has provided me with an analytic intuition about how all types of programs are created, unveiling the mystique of a lot of technology. As our society becomes ever more computerised, our increased awareness of coding means we will be more likely to understand these advancements and be a part of making them too.

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.
