If your child is taking Coding lessons, it’s possible they’ll need some Coding tutoring, especially if they want to get ahead. Coding courses are fast-paced and competitive and will set your child up for a great future if they want to work in the field, otherwise they look great on a CV for just about any industry. We’ll explain how this is the case and where to find quality Coding tuition.
Coding is a hugely important part of our society today. It impacts virtually everything we do and touch from our phones to paying at the supermarket. As the world becomes ever more digital, the reliance on and use of coding is only set to increase.
This is great news if your child wants to get into the field because there is an abundance of jobs. As Coding programmes are universal languages, it opens up doors to work in pretty much any country too (although you may not want them to leave, of course!). Here are just some of the careers where a Coding course can take them in the future:
What’s really exciting about these jobs is they could take your child into just about any industry or area. They could use their Coding course to work in hospitals, the video game market, airports, for one of the big tech giants, etc. Now that you know your child will be set for life in terms of job prospects, let’s look at the most popular Coding lessons people are currently taking.
The PYPL Popularity of Programming Language index looks at data of how often language tutorials are searched on Google. This is a great tool to keep on top of trends and investigate which are the most common current coding lessons to take. It’s always possible to hire a Coding tutor to teach your child a Coding language they’re not learning in Coding lessons at school or uni.
The top five programming languages according to the PYPL as of March 2022 are as follows:
As you can see, Python is the most popular by a fair margin, although it did decrease in popularity by two percent in one year from 2021 to 2022. Let’s take a look at these top five languages briefly to see what your child will have in store for them if they take coding lessons in these languages. ✔️
Depending on their level and school they may focus on just one or a few of these, plus any others that are on the school’s syllabus.
Python lessons are some of the easiest of all programming languages, which is probably why it’s one of the most widely used code languages in the world. Python can be used in web and internet development, desktop GUIs, and software development. Some of the topics your child will learn include how to add two numbers, list comprehension, and data extraction.
Java is a general-purpose language that’s used by many companies to build their platforms, in Internet of Things, and as an Android mobile operating system. Topics that are included in Java coding lessons include data types, classes and methods, and string handling.
As one of the oldest programming languages that’s still in use, C# coding lessons are very useful. It can be used to create cloud-based services, mobile apps, and websites. Topics taught include understanding arrays, creating a C# programme, and working with strings.
C/C++ can be used in many applications like software infrastructure and systems programming. It’s one of the most complicated languages to learn so if your child is a beginner they won’t come across it just yet. C++ coding lessons can cover topics from decision making to signal handling.
Now that we’ve broken down some of the specific coding languages, how do they fit into the wider computing curriculum? Coding is fairly new to the national curriculum and comes under computing. The UK was actually one of the first countries to bring coding into the curriculum. 🇬🇧
Here is an example of what primary school Coding and computer lessons include and also for secondary school. These can vary between school and region but you’ll notice the leap from primary to secondary regardless of where you’re located. If your child needs a Coding tutor, feel free to jump to the end, where we’ll let you know where to pick up a free trial class.

No matter whether your child is doing primary school Coding lessons or higher, Coding tutoring covers all ages and levels. Who needs Coding tutoring?
Coding tutoring can benefit absolutely anyone taking Coding lessons. That’s because it can:
A Coding tutor does more than just run through lesson notes too. Since they’ve already walked the same path as your child, they will know where to find additional Coding revision and past Coding exams to practise. 👍
The style of Coding exam questions will vary depending on the level your child is studying at. Typically, the beginner Coding courses have multiple-choice questions. As they get more difficult they’ll incorporate some short-answer questions. They finally work their way up in complexity until Coding exams require students to use a programme to solve a problem.
As we mentioned, a Coding tutor will provide guidance and preparation for a Coding exam. This will come in a number of forms by helping your child revise their Coding lessons, going over past Coding exams together, and giving them additional material and exercises to run through until your child is proficient on all of the topics.
It’s imperative that you match the right Coding tutor to your child from the start to maximise the benefit of private classes. This should be based on personality, qualifications, and interests. If you opt for online Coding lessons it’s much easier to do this because you aren’t limited by your location.
You’ll pay for a Coding tutor per class and you can often buy these in bundles at a discounted rate. If you choose online Coding tutoring you should find this is more affordable than conventional in-person classes. It will also vary depending on the company you go through.
