My son, Daniel completed Java 1 with Vinh and LOVED it! Daniel is a boy of few words and RARELY asks to pursue the next level of a course, especially if it’s hard, but he said, “I”m missing Java programming. Please sign me up for Java 2. And I want Vinh Doh as my instructor. He was great!” I understand Vinh isn’t available for Java 2, but I must let you know how much Daniel enjoyed and appreciated Vinh’s instruction. Vinh held Daniel’s interest and taught him well. What Daniel especially appreciated (as did we), was Vinh’s generous extension of time on the last day of class, helping Daniel an additional hour teaching Daniel about setting up a server (I think) on Minecraft. In any case, after each session, Daniel was so excited about what he’d learned; he felt a sense of accomplishment and Vinh made learning fun. Thank you, Vinh and Coding4Youth for showing Daniel that learning can be FUN!!!

Our son, Eric, took CS203: Introduction to Java in early July. He wasn’t too sure about taking an online coding class. Well it ended up being a wonderful experience. His instructor, Mario Harper, was fantastic with him. Since Eric was the only student, Mario was able to move the class along as Eric was progressing quickly. Eric had a blast learning code and designing his own video game. What really amazed my husband and I is that Eric brought his laptop along on vacation and worked on his game after the class had completed! Mario helped open up a whole new world to Eric! We are going to sign Eric up for another class this summer!

Our son, Ty, really enjoyed his class and his professor. We loved the one on one attention he received. His Professor was very knowledgeable and patient. He was able to connect with Ty so that he understood what he was learning and how to accomplish it. We would hear our son completing his homework in the evenings and cheering "yay" when he would figure it out. This is an amazing program and we look forward to signing up for more classes.

Our teacher was Saad Mallick, and we were really satisfied. Joelle was looking forward to it every week. Saad was really patient, and he could explain the content very well to Joelle….After the lesson he gave feedback, so we could read about what they had been doing. He was always right on time, and send an email earlier the day of the lesson, which was a good reminder.

My son (Peter) is in Grade 10. He really enjoyed the CS107 class at coding4youth. The online face to face video lesson worked well for him. The teacher was responsive and proactive. I would be interested in enrolling more class for him in the future.
Sangita Majmundar - Mother of 10th Grader, Danville CA, San Ramon Valley High School
My son attended 2 classes this summer and really enjoyed it. The remote access, flexible time slot, small class size and great instructor made it an ideal choice. He is entering the 7th grade and there are not very many summer options for teenagers so this was great. We would definitely consider it for next year.
Jodi - Folsom, CA, Folsom Middle School
My son really enjoyed the Intro to Java class. When he gets back in July we will enroll him into the next level of Java.

The initial course we enrolled was to easy as my son played a lot of minecraft already. But I am glad Coding4youth let us switch to the advanced course and my son really enjoyed learing ComputerCraft in it.

My husband is a software engineer and he felt the course content was at the level it is supposed to be. It was a little advanced for my son, but he still enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Kai (my son) was having lots of fun with the Game Design class this summer. It's his first time doing this kind of course online with a real person. It worked surprisingly well. I might consider enroll my daughter for a Java class later.
