Class experience

US Grade 7 - 10
Beginner Level
This class is taught in English.
Students will be introduced to Python and learn the foundations of the programming language. This allows them to confidently move onto more complex code and continue their coding journey. The class is also intended to encourage students to get excited about the possibilities of coding and computer science!
Over 5,000 students from nearly 100 countries across a variety of platforms have started coding in one of my classes. I offer classes covering the foundations of Python and AI. I am the author of the soon-to-be released book All About Python for Kids.  Before teaching, I worked as a software developer for nearly 10 years. I've worked for organizations including Apple, Dell, and Best Buy. I believe the best way to learn is by doing and all my classes are based around hands-on projects that progressively build in difficulty.  I'm a graduate of Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. I can't wait to meet your learner in the class and get started soon.  
Homework Offered
There are practice challenges and review questions that every student is encouraged to complete. These usually take about 1 – 2 hours per week.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class

Students will need to be very comfortable typing and know how to copy/paste on their device.
Students will use Code with Mu, a free code editor designed specifically for beginners. Code with Mu requires any Windows, Apple Mac, or Linux computer. Students using Chromebooks can utilize the free Raspberry Pi Python code editor for this class.  We will also utilize the official Python documentation (instructions) from Python.org as a reference throughout the class. Also, we utilize Pygame Zero for our final game project!
