About this course

Your child's online Python classes will begin with a theoretical examination of coding logic - using flowcharts and pseudocode - until they have the basics of all good coding.

Then they'll focus specifically on Python and get plenty of hands-on learning which will cover topics such as data types, variables, user inputs, branching, iteration, functions and much more.

Moreover, to keep your child totally engaged, our team of experienced virtual Python tutors will teach them Python online in a fun and dynamic format using such tools as the Turtle Module.
