Self-Study or Teacher-Led Offerings
Many student choose to complete our courses entirely on their own, and our affordable self-study courses let students go through the material at their own pace. Some families prefer our teacher-led option, where a dedicated teacher is available to grade student projects and provide 1-on-1 feedback. Please see the individual course description pages for more details!
What Skills do Students Need to Begin?
Our programming courses assume the student is already familiar with using a keyboard and mouse to select and run programs, navigate application menu systems, and generally interact with their operating system. Students should understand how to load and save files on the hard disk and how to use the built-in operating system applications like Windows Explorer or Mac OS Finder to navigate a file system and directory structures. It is helpful to also have some familiarity with text editors and using web browsers to find information on the Internet. If you feel your student would benefit from a general computer-skills course before trying to code, consider our Digital Savvy course first!
