theCoderSchool Announces First New York City Location Opening
As the demand for computer coding skills steadily rises, many parents are looking to give their children a head start on learning essential coding skills. theCoderSchool, a Silicon Valley-based children’s enterprise franchise that provides computer programming lessons to children ages 7 to 18, is helping meet the demand for kids coding classes as it expands across the United States.
Last month, the brand opened its first location in New York City that will engage kids in fun classes while teaching them essential coding skills for future innovation. The new location is located in the Tribeca neighborhood at 23 Warren St. Store 4, New York, NY 10007 and is owned and operated by Tammy Nguyyen.
Nguyen and her family moved to New York City from the San Francisco Bay area 10 years ago, where she previously worked as a prolific Real Estate and Mortgage professional, earning #1 rep status five years straight at her brokerage for volume of transactions and loans.
After the big cross country move, Nguyen’s daughters, Chloe and Kelis, became interested in coding but they found that there was a lack of kids coding schools in New York City that provided personalized and individual training. After much research, Nguyen determined that the few coding schools around had poor teacher-student ratios and non-progressive teaching methodologies. So, she took things into her own hands and began focusing on coding education so that she could teach her girls new coding skills!
“I wanted my daughters to have role models and aspirations to be the next Sergey Brin, Bill Gates or Sheryl Sandberg,” said Nguyen. “If I was able to expose my daughters to a fun and engaging way to learn coding, then they could make their own decision to go deeper in pursuit of an eventual career in technology.”
After much success teaching her own daughters about coding, Nguyen quickly found that many other families in the area were experiencing similar challenges finding coding programs that fit the needs of their kids. With a passion for coding and wanting to make a difference in the lives of more children in New York City, Nguyen learned about theCoderSchool franchise opportunity and decided to open the very first theCoderSchool in New York City.
“I am so excited that the theCoderSchool Tribeca has opened its doors and we are ready to give so many kids the opportunity to learn to code in a fun and engaging environment,” said Nguyen. “I fell in love with theCoderSchool brand, and cannot wait to help children discover their passion for coding and see all of the great things they can accomplish with their newly learned skills. I am optimistic that bringing theCoderSchool to New York City will make a difference in many children’s lives and help unlock skills that they didn’t know they were capable of!”
Nguyen wanted to continue teaching coding to the next generation of kids and found theCoderSchool was the perfect solution. theCoderSchool offers students a customized curriculum in a semi-private setting, which allows for more personalized lessons that fit the needs of each student. The core program at theCoderSchool pairs each student with an expert coder called a Code Coach in a 2:1 lesson to guide them on a custom journey, unique to the student and their interests.
“I am a strong believer that learning the basic foundation of coding is an asset to every child and the way theCoderSchool model makes learning fun and engaging really spoke to me,” said Nguyen. “I cannot wait to be a part of a brand that teaches kids not only coding but also fundamental problem solving skills which can help them prepare for any career path they chose.”
Nguyen believes that learning to code is beneficial to all children and can help them prepare for future careers. Coding helps teach children how to think differently and encourages creativity, which are essential to a child’s growth and development. As technology becomes more and more integrated into everyday life, learning to code with help put children ahead of the curve and prepare them for the future that is reliant on technology. Through theCoderSchool, children can learn coding skills that will be extremely beneficial to their future all while having fun and being able to express themselves.
By offering year round lessons and exciting Coding Camps during school and summer breaks, theCoderSchool provides parents with a variety of coding options that are sure to fit their busy schedule. The brand also offers coding classes both in person and virtually to give parents the flexibility to choose what suits their child’s needs.
“We are thrilled to have Tammy on our team and bring theCoderSchool to New York City for the first time,” said Lynn. “We couldn’t be happier to see the brand enter Tribeca and I have no doubt that Tammy’s passion for coding and helping children will allow theCoderSchool to thrive within the city. We are confident that Tammy will do a great job setting kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with technology and coding.”
theCoderSchool has over 55 schools operating in over 15 states and continues to expand its national footprint with several locations in development in major U.S. and Canadian markets. As theCoderSchool continues this expansion, Nguyen also plans to open additional theCoderSchool locations across New York City to help bring coding to as many children in the city possible.
