Learn Python programming with an expert tutor
With the ever-increasing demand for Python programming skills, why not give yourself the best chances of success by having a personal tutor? If you want expert Python tutoring delivered in a super-clear and friendly way at your own pace, you have come to the right place.
Hi. I'm Robin Andrews - Python Programming Tutor and Computer Science Education Specialist.
Whether your goal is to advance your career in software development, to pass an exam, or simply to learn programming for your own enjoyment, you have come the the right place.
My approach emphasizes practical experience, with programming exercises and projects, and a fun, engaging approach while still paying attention to detail and rigour.
Feedback from our training
Robin went above and beyond before our lesson to prepare the code I needed for my project and to help me walk through HTML in a clear and concise manner. Thanks!
Great first session with Robin. He knows his material and quickly identified new skills for me to focus on to tackle my project.
Having lessons with Robin was very valuable. I hadn’t made up my mind about whether to pursue Computer Science as a career, but Robin’s inspiring teaching helped me to decide.
We highly recommend Mr Andrews to any parent looking for a professional and experienced tutor. He is patient and very knowledgeable. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons and his understanding of Computer Science has greatly improved. Thank you so much.
Python is a hugely important programming language and is set to become even more so over the next few years. Its use at Google, including on YouTube, is evidence of the high regard in which it is held in the tech industry.
Benefits of Python
- It’s free and open-source
- It’s cross platform
- There are tons of excellent resources available for learning it
- Its syntax is relatively simple and it often reads like English
- There are modules that enable quick access to powerful functionality such as graph plotting, graphics and GUI building
- It's quick and easy to get up and running and to write the classic “Hello world!” program.
Other uses of Python
Two other big areas in which Python has become hugely popular are:
- Web apps built using platforms such as Django and Flask
- Data Science applications covering a vast range of areas. Indeed here, Python has become the de facto standard.
Python in education
In the UK, over 90% of schools offering Computer Science GCSE use Python as the main programming language for students.
In my own experience Python is an excellent choice and I find that students can make rapid progress while staying highly motivated due the the relative simplicity of Python’s syntax and all the packages and tools available with a simple import statement.
If you are teaching or intend to teach GCSE or A Level Computer Science, Python is a great choice, and having a personal tutor is a great way to make sure your skills are up to par, giving you the confidence to deliver, and your students the best learning experience possible.
