Why not find an affordable and capable young coder to inspire your child?

Does your child want to learn how to code or improve their coding skills? We have lots of talented young coders in our programme eager to share their knowledge and passion for computing. We offer tutorials in Python, Scratch, and coding mods in Minecraft, along with a whole range of other programming and IT skills. Finding the right person to guide and challenge your child can be difficult. We aim to make that process quick and easy through our bespoke matching service.

For many children, the past year has meant so many hobbies have been put on hold. Luckily, that’s not the case at MyPocketSkill. We have wonderful, relatable young people on hand to help your child develop their skills. Regular sessions can be booked at rates starting at £5 for 45 minutes. All our classes are currently offered via video conference and we’ll offer live lessons as soon as we can.

How do I book a lesson?

Our lessons are available both online or offline. The process of booking a lesson is simple. Just get in contact with a programmer of your choice, or accept requests from young people who have contacted you, organise a time, date and session format you would like - whether it be a one-off-session or multiple sessions - and make booking. You can select different tutors based on their reviews, their profile and their listings.

How to hire the best tutor?

A few tips for selecting a programmer.

  • Read through their profile: our young people have robust personal stories and experiences to share and they often write about this on their profile. Select a profile which you believe is relatable to your child and with the skill sets which fit your requirements.
  • Read their reviews: our more experienced tutors often have reviews given by their past customers. Having more positive reviews are generally an indication of professional behaviour and that they have provided positive experiences to past clients.
  • Make a trial booking. It’s not expensive to book a programmer on MyPocketSkill. Booking an initial single lesson with one or more tutors can be a great way to understand whether it’s likely to be a fit. Once you have found a programmer that works for you, it’s possible to make block bookings on MyPocketSkill, which many customers find more convenient.
