There are many ways you can learn programming skills in and around Glasgow. Whether you're studying coding in a school classroom, on a university course, or with a private tutor, learning how to code is only going to become more important as computers become a bigger part of our lives.
Let's see why you should learn more about programming, the challenges that you'll face, what you can learn about programming at school, and how private tutoring can help.
By studying computer science and programming, you'll learn an important set of skills for working with computers in a variety of different ways. In general, programming is about telling a computer what to do. Unlike IT, where you learn how to operate computers, computer science and coding is about creating instructions for computers to carry out by developing apps, websites, programs, etc.
Aside from the programming skills that you'll learn by studying programming, you'll also develop many useful transferrable skills that can be applied to other aspects of your life or career. For one, you'll learn to be patient. Writing code is a meticulous process where you need to pay attention to details and fixing code can take hours, days, or even weeks.
You'll also learn how to work in teams and spend time working on your own. On larger programming projects, the development will be split amongst several teams and it'll be imperative that you work together. However, this doesn't mean that you won't have hours on your own as you write your lines of code.
Of course, if programming was that easy, nobody would need lessons or tutors. We alluded to how much time it can take to code and even programmers with years of experience can get frustrated with it.
Computers, for all they can do, aren't that smart. The tiniest error in your code can cause it not to work. In a language like English, it doesn't matter too much if you misspell a word or make a grammatical mistake as you can still be understood, but with a programming language, these errors can result in hours of debugging.
It can also take a long time to learn how to program at a good level. Whether you attend courses, teach yourself, or learn from a private tutor, don't expect to be making killer apps after just a few lessons. Don't give up, though. It'll be worth it in the end!
These lessons at school are often the first chance many students in Glasgow will get to experience computing science and programming so if they've shown an interest in it, it's a good idea for them to start with their classes at school.
The problem with lessons at school is that there are often several students in the class and just one teacher to help or provide academic support. While this is a good way to teach several students at once, it's not the most effective way to teach an individual student.
This is where private tutors can help. They can ensure that the learning experience is tailored to each student and they get the most out of every hour they spend studying with them. We mentioned that programming could take a lot of effort to get good at so the tutors must tailor every hour of their courses to their students.
If you're looking for private programming lessons from a tutor in Glasgow, just search for tutors on the Superprof website. You can search for computer programming in general or search for specific programming skills and languages.
Once you've searched for the tutors, you can view each tutor's profile, see what they teach, read reviews left by their other students, and see if they offer the first hour of tuition for free. Many of the tutors on the platform do this and you can use these sessions to try out several tutors and classes before deciding on which one is right for you. There's no single teaching approach that works for everyone and every level so you must choose the tutoring that's right for you.
One-on-one lessons are useful if there are particular skills you need to learn or need help with school, college, or university courses. The tutor will adapt each lesson and the overall course and teaching to your level, experience, and preferred learning style.
If you can't find any suitable tutors or lessons in Glasgow, you can always look for online tutoring. As long as you have a webcam and a decent internet connection, you can learn from tutors all over the UK and around the world. Of course, if you're getting help with Scottish Highers, you might want to check the tutor is familiar with them. While there's a lot of overlap with the topics taught on a Computer Science GCSE, the exam formats aren't the same.
For those on a budget, there are also group lessons available. While these lessons can't be tailored to the individual students, you can share the cost of the tutor's time with the other students. If you and some friends, colleagues, classmates, or family members have an interest in learning how to code, group classes with a private tutor could be a good way to learn some new skills.
Whether you want to help with programming, maths, school subjects, or arts and crafts, you're bound to find someone teaching the skills you want to learn on the Superprof website!
