Outstanding experience with the provider/instructor. Recognized need to individualize lessons very early on and demonstrated incredible flexibility to meet our needs. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her classes and she's learning a lot on a rather challenging subject. Communication and feedback with the instructor are also excellent! Highly recommend this school!


We're extremely satisfied with Penguin coding school. Nothing more to ask!

The instructor is really great. She's so patient and clear in her teaching. Excellent job!


The other child in the class with my son is very noisy, speaking out of turn and frequently over the instructor. There are frequent interruptions and noise making and it makes it difficult to hear the instructor. It would be nice if there could be more frequent use of the mute button when there is just noise making going on in the background. Furthermore, he has found the class pace to be slow. I'm sure you can only be as fast as your slowest student, so not sure what more to say about that.

My daughter enjoyed the class and made a very cool game!


Might be nice for the parent to hve more of an idea of what the kids are learning…. Not suggesting homework but a summary of the codes and process would be great - especially for parents like me who have no idea how to code.

My son really enjoyed learning more about Python. I would like for him to take another class as we didn't get the full experience due to technical issues.


Providing the necessary technical devices required or what would be recommended. For this class I would suggest two monitors so as a child is in the test site with Python the Zoom meeting is on the other monitor. Secondly, if the parent needs to log into another site then provide that login information ahead of time. We took this course and there was only one other parent/child participating and neither of us received login information for the course prior to the class, all we had was the Zoom
