We offer private tutoring over the school holidays as well as coding/programming
We offer continued private tutoring during most school holiday periods. For students who would like a break from their usual coursework or who are feeling caught up with their classes, we also offer tutoring in programming (coding) over school holiday periods.
School Holiday Tutoring
School holidays are a great opportunity for students to get caught up or even to get ahead without the distraction of other classes, homework, assignments, etc. School holidays can also provide a more flexible schedule for the student’s family and the tutor, so we can often find a convenient time for them to come in, and they are welcome to come in more than once per week over the holiday period. With high school students, we may cover past topics or concepts that we hadn’t had time to cover during the term, or revise topics that may be on upcoming exams. For students who are feeling confident in their class to date, we often look ahead at topics that will be covered next term or later in the school year, so the student is well prepared.
Holiday Coding Projects
Students who would like a break from school or even want to do something fun and rewarding over the school holidays may want to consider participating in programming projects over the school holidays. Programming can be a very hands-on experience with logic and mathematics concepts. The projects we offer are very kid friendly, and even young children can participate. Generally your child would just need to be able to read, and be familiar with numbers up to hundreds, as well as the basic operations of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. The projects do involve working with percents, negative numbers, and degrees, but are a great way to introduce children to these concepts if they aren’t familiar with them, as they’ll be able to see the results of their choices happen on the screen. Although kid-friendly, high school students are also welcome to participate and it will be a good introduction to logic and the way programming works for those who have never tried their hand at programming. Students who have completed beginning level projects during one school break may then participate in more advanced projects during the next school break. Students also may continue to practice at home over the school term as their projects will be saved online.
