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!
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!
Whilst this is something I have done in the past, I'm not currently offering A-Level and GCSE computer science tution.
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.
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.
To provide the best learning experience, I keep my classes small, with a maximum of 4 to 6 students for most classes.
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.
All materials are provided except where stated in the course description.
Our focus is Computer Science, Programming, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Databases and Data Science (plus and a bit of woodworking)!
I really enjoy creating new courses, so I expect the list to grow. If you have some ideas, why not suggest them!
For all-day courses bring a packed lunch (or visit one of the local cafes). The course descriptions detail anything else you may need.
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.
Anyone in full-time education for the current academic year qualifies for the concession rate.
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!
Once you book, I will send you an invoice. I can take payment by bank transfer or Paypal.
You will take away anything you make (such as your robot and code).
