Our teaching philosophy is derived from our dedication to student-centered learning and unique teaching methods:
By challenging students at their individual level to create projects as unique as they are, we underscore the power of personalized learning. And with our 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio, students get the guidance they need to keep moving forward.
From the Socratic method to our signature Untutorials, our specialized curriculum and teaching methods are centered around asking questions that empower students to explore problems, discover solutions, and grow as thinkers, learners, and leaders.
Unlike virtually all other coding curriculums, The Coding Space doesn’t use follow-along instructions. Instead, we employ Untutorials: fun and engaging games, websites, or apps that students are challenged to figure out how to build.
Untutorials list the high-level tasks students need to complete the project, but intentionally leave out how to accomplish those tasks. Students develop strong grit, determination, and problem-solving skills by figuring out the rest via tinkering, Googling, asking a friend, and iterating towards a solution, all while developing deep insights and intuition of high-level concepts.
Fostering non-cognitive skills, like perseverance and intellectual self-confidence, is a delicate balance of targeted encouragement and tough love.
Our teachers are highly trained mentors that are skilled in knowing exactly how much help to give a student, when, and how often. Rather than simply giving hints or answers, The Coding Space instructors draw ideas from students through the use of the Socratic Method and model strategies on how they can find answers for themselves.
Our customized curriculum was created to inspire your child to achieve their maximum potential. This student-centered approach combines project-based learning with unique platforms like WoofJS to create a totally personalized education experience, allowing students to be challenged at their individual level and pace.
