Who are the courses aimed at?

The courses are aimed at anyone with a blossoming enthusiam in the subject areas I teach. Generally my students are older teenagers, university students or adult career changers, but a lot come just for fun!

Is there a minimum or maximum age?

I welcome enthusiastic adult learners and teenagers. Younger students can be accommodated, but may want to be accompanied by someone older. I run occasional sessions for kids aged 11+. There is no upper age limit!

Do you do GCSE and A-Level Courses?

Whilst this is something I have done in the past, I'm not currently offering A-Level and GCSE computer science tution.

Where are the courses delivered?

Short courses are run from my home in Ealing, West London and from other venues in London. For group bookings I can come to you if you are in or around London. I also do school visits.

What facilities do you have?

I have a classroom area where the main courses run, a woodworking workshop for all the messy work and an electronics station, where the soldering happens.

How big are the classes?

To provide the best learning experience, I keep my classes small, with a maximum of 4 to 6 students for most classes.

Do you offer online courses?

At the moment I am not offering online courses. This area of the market is already well served and my focus is on face-2-face, hands-on, interactive and collaborative learning. A nice side-effect of this approach is that my students pick up essential skills in working as a team. I do offer online one-to-one tuition where appropriate.

What materials are provided?

All materials are provided except where stated in the course description.

What are the main subject areas you cover?

Our focus is Computer Science, Programming, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Databases and Data Science (plus and a bit of woodworking)!

Will you be introducing other courses?

I really enjoy creating new courses, so I expect the list to grow. If you have some ideas, why not suggest them!

What do I have to bring?

For all-day courses bring a packed lunch (or visit one of the local cafes). The course descriptions detail anything else you may need.

What additional support is provided for students?

All short-course students benefit from one-to-one tuition at reduced rates. Click here for details.

Students working on their own projects may want to book an excellent value Personal Projects session to get focussed half-day, full-day or full-weekend assistance.

Do I qualify for the concession rate?

Anyone in full-time education for the current academic year qualifies for the concession rate.

Can I get a discount?

Because I run courses from my hom my course rates are already significantly lower than courses elsewhere. I occasionally offer discounts for loyalty and am open to offers of skills exchange or other forms of bartering!

How do I pay?

Once you book, I will send you an invoice. I can take payment by bank transfer or Paypal.

What do I get to take away from the course?

You will take away anything you make (such as your robot and code).

You will also take away the comprehensive course notes (for the robotics courses we have over 50 pages of detailed notes):

You will also receive a certificate:
