Who is theCoderSchool

Coding Lessons for Kids in Roslyn, NY

We believe coding is an art and a science. Something best taught by an expert mentor sitting right next to our students. Personalized attention goes a long way when learning an advanced subject. That's why our after-school coding lessons for kids revolve around a mentoring relationship with a Code Coach who's not only an expert coder themselves, but an ongoing mentor for our students' tech ambitions even beyond app building.

Programs at theCoderSchool

Our coding school's flagship after-school program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small 2:1 teaching ratio with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them the most. While Code Coaching is our premium program, we also offer a Code Class for those looking for a more traditional curriculum-taught class in a larger ratio. Programs are typically in-person, but may be offered virtually as needed. Contact us using the form above to find out more and get a free trial today.

theCoderSchool System

We're part of a nationwide system of passionate owners in over 65 locations around the country, teaching over 7,000 students every week with the brainpower of 1000+ expert Code Coaches®. Headquartered and founded in Silicon Valley, we're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded way back in August of 2014. In short, we know a thing or two about teaching kids to code - so let's get to it!

What Kids Learn

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 what kids are learning and a sampling of possibilities. We even have a suite of proprietary tools (see a sample Student Portal ) that chart our students' progress, concepts learned, and even activities beyond app-building.

The Coder Story

Every coding student has a unique journey, something we call a Coder Story. Our Coder Story structure helps guide kids along a roadmap of coding possibilities as they explore coding-related activities beyond building custom apps. For those striving to go to college as a Computer Science Major, an advanced Coder Story can help differentiate their application to college admissions boards.

Our Schools

Meet Our Owner

Noreen Kazi

My name is Noreen Kazi and I’m the owner of theCoderSchool of Roslyn. I am an active Long Island parent that is excited about bringing this dedicated coding program to our students. I have experience as a community leader and organizer and I have spent over 20 years creating educational curriculum and leading programs focused on ensuring that our youth are ready to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Through my experience designing educational curriculum, I have had the privilege of seeing how technology has positively impacted curriculum development. What I love about coding is that it drives innovation – coding provides students with the ability to take an idea that they have, make that idea come to life, and then share that idea with millions of people. Additionally, coding can provide a cross curricular benefit by improving student’s math skills as they start to visualize and break down problems from other angles. I truly believe that Long Island is at the cutting edge of educational innovation and I am excited about bringing this offering to our kids. You can reach me anytime at noreen@thecoderschool.com.

Meet Our Senior Advisor

Nisha Bhalla

My name is Nisha Bhalla and I am the Senior Advisor of theCoderSchool of Roslyn. I still remember learning how to code in Linux and was fascinated with the collaboration and support of the programming community as we all looked to build a better program, together. Technology has continued to drive significant change and the ability to code is a skillset that every student should have.

I am so excited about bringing this program to Long Island in a setting that is both educational and fun. As a graduate of Harvard Business School, I have seen firsthand the way technology has impacted the future of all industries from farming to healthcare and I can’t wait to bring this knowledge to our students. Additionally, I have over 10 years of experience working in product development roles at various Fortune 500 companies and start-ups and I am thrilled about sharing this career knowledge with our students.

I’m also passionate about mentoring students on their communication and presentation skills, and I love that this program will not only teach kids how to code, but also how to engage their audiences to effectively communicate their ideas and opinions.

Our Board of Advisors

We've also assembled a team of experienced advisors to help provide oversight and guidance. Read more about who they are, and don't be surprised when they come in as speakers for our school events!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can coding help kids?

Many folks might think learning to code is so kids can actually code an app. Honestly, that's not usually the case! Coding real-life apps is tough. Despite what the media says, your kid is not writing some million dollar app by themselves in a month. Instead, coding helps kid *solve problems*. Coding is all about debugging and logically thinking through the fix. Breaking a large problem into smaller parts, logical sequencing, these are all important problem solving skills for any kid (or adult!). A second benefit is confidence and passion in technology. There's plenty of time for kids to learn the latest real tech (which changes all the time), but the time to build passion for technology (and a foundational knowledge base) is when they're young!

What is the best coding language to learn as a beginner?

The truth is, Scratch is amazing for a beginner at ANY AGE. If someone is truly a beginner, a platform like Scratch can allow them to create and engage much more quickly. Older kids (say 11 and up) can soon move to a language like Python or Javascript. Just remember that it takes a LOT MORE work to get Python/Javascript to do the same thing as Scratch - so the kids will need some patience. No matter what anyone tells you please DO NOT start learning with Java or C++! Those languages are too advanced to start with, and we've seen it too often - kids will give up because it's so hard! Definition of backfiring!

What is the best age to start coding?

It depends - we think the best age is the age they want to do it! Listen, there's plenty of time to *really* learn to code - there's a reason Comp Sci is a really tough college degree. The important thing in the younger years is to bring out the desire and passion to learn more - that's why at theCoderSchool we customize our projects based on the student's interests and really focus on engagement before learning.

How do I get accepted into a college computer science program?

These days, top colleges are incredibly selective. Learning to code by itself probably won't help you stand out enough. Instead, consider building a unique Coder Story. Can we help? Sure can!

What are the benefits of kids learning to code?

Children of all ages can benefit from learning coding skills, and students who get hands-on experience with computer programming go on to excel in other subjects Coding helps students gain computer proficiency and build real-world problem-solving skills. Exploring technology is essential for computer literacy. Building fundamental coding skills encourages creativity, promotes teamwork, and enhances spatial intelligence and logical thinking skills. Kids of all ages can learn computer science. For teenagers, learning how to code leads to the development of transferable skills that can be applied in future careers or workplaces. If your student is interested in data science or machine learning, a self-paced course in computer programming can help pave their path.

As you and your family consider coding programs, it helps to keep in mind:

  • The age of the student (we can teach kids as young as six)
  • Their individual interests (such as Lego, Roblox, robotics, video game design, or artificial intelligence)
  • Any previous hands-on experience with coding (even exposure to mobile apps or playing with Minecraft counts)
  • Preferred learning style (we offer both flexible and structured curricula and support self-paced learning)
  • Social skills (some students learn best in one-on-one lessons, while others favor teamwork)

    Whether the student wants to explore Minecraft modding in Minecraft camp, is interested in HTML, or wants to learn block-based coding like CSS, our interactive classes provide a great coding experience.

    Can a 6 year old do coding?

    Sure! Kids this young are just developing their sense of logic. While some advanced 6 year olds are ready to dive into learning Scratch, many are better off with fun learning apps like Kodable or Scratch Jr..

    How do kids learn to code?

    Same way adults do! The best way to learn something is to just DO it. It's not about all the theory and fancy words, it's about just doing it over and over again. If you're a parent with a college degree, think back. How much of that theoretical curriculum did you really use in your job? Or did you really learn your job by DOING your job? It's the same with kids, we'll mentor and guide them, but most importantly, we'll get them to code something custom that they want to code!

    Where is the best place to learn coding for kids?

    We're a little bit biased, but we think it's theCoderSchool! There's no better way to learn anything, including coding, than just doing it with a mentor to guide you. Online or in person, our Code Coaches will give you that low-ratio full attention that every kid deserves!

    What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? Founded in 2013, we're the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
