Code With Us

Details about Code With Us.

Code With Us is a venture-backed technology education organization founded in 2016 in Silicon Valley, CA. We teach students a variety of skills through coding education that include popular programming languages, robotics, virtual reality, 3D printing, creative game design and much more. Our students actively participate and have won many coding competitions. We are the first organization in California to provide customized coding curriculum for schools. Currently we are teaching approximately 2600 students.

We offer classes at 8 locations in the SF Bay area and New York. Most of our classes are in-person in small class size setup. We also offer online classes, which is getting popular with students that require flexibility. We also teach students in 40+ school campuses across the Bay Area, that include after school programs and in-curriculum graded classes.

We offer classes in 15+ coding languages and design thinking. Students can select the type of projects they want to create and we recommend the language based on their skill level and interests. Some of our popular topics are:

  • Game Design with Scratch
  • Application Development with Python
  • Web Development with JavaScript
  • Build and Design Robots and Gadgets with Arduino and C++
  • Virtual Reality Design with Unity

We believe in giving personalized attention to each student and implement project-based learning. Not everyone learns at the same pace or with the same style. We have developed customized curricula that our teachers use to provide step-by-step instructions to create games and projects in the coding language of students’ interests. Our teachers explain coding fundamentals while working on the projects. We have noticed this method to be an excellent way to enhance students’ learning experiences and to keep them engaged.

Our teachers are Computer Science graduates and students from local universities, and they are based in the United States. They are thoroughly vetted for their coding skills and teaching ability. We hold regular training for our teachers to improve their skillset. Our teachers go through background checks before joining Code With Us.

We begin with evaluating students’ prior experience and projects they’re interested in during the first class. After our initial assessment, we recommend topics and levels that match their objectives and keep them interested in learning. Assigning students at the right level is important for their long-term success. As we progress with classes, based on a student’s learning pace and ability, we realign our lesson plans.

Our in-person classes are scheduled, students meet with their teacher at a recurring time each week. When a student arrives in the classroom, he/she is allocated a computer to work on the project. The assigned teacher always stays with the student to answer and explain lessons. A teacher always reviews completed work and frequently challenges student to think outside the box to make design improvements.
