Our vision
for the future

Our vision is to see students develop
1) a life long love of learning (we do this by making learning fun with a gamified curriculum), and
2) a passion to use their knowledge (we do this by ensuring all learning is project based), and
3) a habit of consistent iterative improvement (never understimate the power of this in life).
Imagine your child posessing these three stellar traits for success. Our aim is to help them get there.

The journey so far

1

First Lessons (2017)

Running her first coding lesson, Nikki noticed some students were struggling and wanted the content to go slower, whereas other students were bored and wanted it to go faster. She realized traditional teaching made it impossible to extend students who were learning to type while also extending students who already knew several coding languages. So she created a curriculum system that allowed each student to progress at their own pace, quickly extending their skills beyond where they were in school. Josh and Nikki realized this learning approach was awesome, and Josh quit his day job to join the tutoring company in 2018. For the next 3 years the number of coding lesson groups/locations grew rapidly.

Covid & Going SaaS (2020)

Covid hit, and the team pivotted to online lessons. This turned out to be advantageous for student learning progress, with students being able to focus better (code learning requires concentration), and tutors being able to spend more time helping students and less time on behavior control. Students did so well with online learning (with results showing they learnt both faster and more in depth when compared with the previous in person lessons), that lessons are now staying online.

Gamification (2021)

People learn better when they feel like they're playing, so we improved our students learning experience with the addition of points, avatars, leaderboards and more. We soon had 12 year olds learning first year University level coding! We want our students to develop a life long love of learning, and we will continue to work towards this goal.

Current Mission (2022)

Our current mission is to make learning to code with the Coding NZ curriculum available to more students, so that everyone gets a chance to experience a learning system that we wish was available when we were young. We are open to discussions with any industry partners etc. Just give us a call :)
