Hey super-parent! We're happy you're looking for options to get your kids learning to code. It's SUCH an amazing skill to learn and will help your kids in more ways than you can imagine! We're super excited to be bringing Silicon Valley's #1 kids coding program to the area to help your kids get going, so read on and let's get our kids coding!
At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. 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? Fill out the form and we'll be in touch shortly to tell you more!
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!
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. Find more details about what kids are learning by checking out our Coder Tree®.
Our suite of proprietary tools* chart weekly progress by tracking concepts and apps, and longer term progress by identifying skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Get an idea of our progress tools by clicking through a Sample Student's Student Portal to see for yourself.* Used by participating locations, check your location for availability
Each year, theCoderSchool partners with the Congressional App Challenge, a nationwide coding contest run by districts of the U.S. Congress. Take a look at some recent winners, or ask about our App Gallery to see more apps!

My name is Tammy Nguyen and I’ll be the General Manager/Owner of theCoderSchool Tribeca location. This location will be the first one in New York City. Before moving to New York City, I was a prolific Real Estate and Mortgage professional in San Francisco Bay Area, earning #1 rep status five years straight at her brokerage for volume of transactions and loans. I earned my BS from San Francisco State University. In my free time, I bring my competitive spirit to running, having completed 6 major marathons, it is something I am very passionate about. Additionally, my true obsession is cooking, as I have tried cooking hundreds of different recipes originating from all corners of the globe. As a mom, I also love helping my daughters, Chloe and Kelis navigate their way through their teen years.
I decided to focus on coding education when I moved to New York and there was a dearth of hands-on coding schools for my daughters, Chloe (13 yo) and Kelis (12 yo). Coding schools were few and far between, and the ones available had poor teacher-student ratios and non-progressive teaching methodologies. I wanted my daughters to have role models and aspirations to be the next Sergey Brin, Bill Gates or Sheryl Sandberg. If I was able to expose Chloe and Kelis 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.
I wanted to do something at scale after realizing many families are having similar challenges to finding coding programs that can be relevant and stick. I believe in the possibility of enabling every child in New York with the opportunity to learn coding in a way that keeps them interested and engaged.
