Project-based beginner-level 12-week semester course, student programmers learn coding concepts and practices by creating interest-driven coding projects using Scratch. If your student is not yet a reader, please look at my Scratch Jr classes.

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem. Develop plans that describe a program’s sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.  Identify and fix errors using a systematic process. Using correct terminology, describe steps taken, and choices made during the iterative process of program development. Create several computational artifacts for practical intent, personal expression, or to address a societal issue.
Great teachers form strong relationships with their students by engaging them in the subjects they are passionate about. I have always been a logical thinker who enjoys science, math, technology, and engineering both for work and play. 

I worked as an engineer for companies like Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Amgen as a consultant for many years improving their systems with automation and equipment. Once I became a parent, I began teaching extra-curricular classes as a way to have more time at home, but stay involved in subjects that bring me joy. 

Realizing that by being warm, professional, and enthusiastic, I am able to engage students. My creative lessons and strong classroom presence help build student confidence while increasing interest in subjects that may otherwise seem intimidating. 
It is strongly encouraged to have two devices. One device for Zoom (laptop, desktop computer, smartphone or tablet) and a second device for coding 

BEFORE CLASS, please be sure to have Scratch 3 installed on the device you will be coding with. This will save us class time if everyone is ready to go when class starts.
