Helloooooo Seattle! We are so excited to bring The Coder School to Bellevue! With the Puget Sound region being the hub of applied science and innovative leader in technology, we're excited to bring the Silicon Valley's #1 premier coding program to the Seattle area! Home to Microsoft, Amazon and a flurry of startup company's forming daily, we're proud The Coder School has found an organic home in Bellevue.

At theCoderSchool-Bellevue, our qualified Code Coaches do more than just teach students how to code, but how to think like coders as well. Our physical space and our programs are both designed to help kids learn these skills and more - skills that are valuable in any future career! We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun. Interested? Book a FREE trial today and we will be in touch shortly to tell you more!

Who is theCoderSchool

Code Coaching®

Code Coaching® is our core philosophy, and what our school is all about!  We believe that every student is different, and that kids should learn in the way that works best for each child. How? Our Code Coaches® - they're the magic sauce!  Unlike some coding schools, we don't just leave the kids in front of a computer, expecting the software to teach them how to code. Nor do we force all kids to go through the same curriculum or projects, regardless of their skills and interests. Instead, our Code Coaches® customize their lessons for each child, and focus on a 2 on 1 mentee-mentor relationship with our kids so our students can get the focused attention they need.

Code Coaching® works for kids of all ages and skill levels, from novice to advanced. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Coaches can help your kids achieve their goals.

Sessions run one or two hours a week (your choice), at the same time every week on a schedule that works for both you and our assigned Coach. Check out our video for more info!

Coding Lessons for Kids in Bellevue, WA

Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code! That's where our Code Coaches® come in, providing a long-term mentoring relationship to teach kids to code, from someone who's a coder themselves.

Our coding school's flagship program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small teaching ratio of typically 2:1 or 1:1 with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. This program works for kids of all ages and skill levels. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Code Coaches can help your kids achieve their programming goals. Sessions run one or two hours a week (your choice), at the same time every week on a schedule that works for both you and our assigned Coach. Our lessons are taught in-person at our schools where available, or can be online for social distancing. Fill out our form above to get a free trial today!

Our Coder Tree®

We believe that every student learns in his or her own way, not only in what they want to work on, but how fast and how much. Our Coder Tree® is a visualization of our students' learning options as they grow and a sampling of some of the topics we teach. Like real trees, our students' coding journeys are unique from each other, but all require strong foundations and trunks to support their higher, advanced branches. Need a magnifying glass? Here's a zoomable view.

Tracking Progress

Custom coding means tracking progress is even more important! Our suite of proprietary tools* does just that. Our Coder Progress and Notes+ systems chart weekly progress through concept tracking and freeform notes. App Reviews track longer term progress by identifying current skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Finally, our Student Portal is a one-stop shop to see it all and then some! Confused? It's complicated! Get an idea by clicking through a Sample Student's functional Student Portal to see for yourself.

Our Schools

Meet Our Owner

Taylor Wu

Hi, my name is Taylor (I also go by my Chinese name Te, pronounced "Tay") and I'm the owner at theCoderSchool Bellevue. I keep telling my daughter (in photo) how lucky she is to be a kid growing up with all this technology around her. That's why I'm so excited to have the opportunity to be part of theCoderSchool to introduce technology to kids in a way that's fun, but also teach them problem solving skills that will benefit them no matter what they choose to do later in life. With the right exposure, the possibilities are endless for kids to create just about anything they can dream of!

My background now is speech recognition, connected cars and using technology to solve everyday problems. I've been lucky to have worked at Microsoft, Google and smaller companies like VoiceBox here in Bellevue, and now Vinli, a connected car company.

If you have any questions or are interested in finding out more about our school, shoot me an email at taylor@thecoderschool.com.
