I believe in coding education that is affordable and accessible to all children, regardless of their socio-economic situation. My online self-study introduction to Python coding is a cost-effective way for children to take their first step towards learning to code – a skill that will support them in becoming whatever they dream of being in the future. I also offer live online courses for small groups tailored to the needs of each student.
Coding is writing logical instructions for a computer to follow. In our modern world, coding is used to create computer programs which power the microchips in your microwave, car, phone and every modern device you know.
I provide Python courses via Zoom. Class size is a maximum of three students to ensure enough attention can be given to individuals while maintaining the group dynamic. Please contact me for more information. The video below shows the kind of work students do in my courses.

I have a degree in Physics and Astrophysics and a master’s degree in Environmental Management. I have been teaching for 25 years and have taught children of all ages throughout my career. I greatly enjoy nurturing the amazing creativity and passion that young people have for coding. I believe we will need many talented coders in the future.
For my online self-study course, you will need a laptop or a desktop computer. You can use a PC, Mac or Linux/Ubuntu system. The free software I use for coding, Pycharm, is not available for tablets.
If your child is not used to doing online courses or is not practiced at using a computer or a keyboard, I recommend sitting with them through the first few videos until their confidence improves.
All software used in courses is free to download.
At present, I focus exclusively on Python as it is approachable for young learners while remaining immensely powerful and is used by a wide variety of professionals.
