What is the teaching method at Ultimate Coders?
We believe in giving personalized attention to each student and implement project-based learning. Not everyone learns at the same pace or with the same style. We have developed customized curricula that our teachers use to provide step-by-step instructions to create games and projects in the coding language of students’ interests. Our teachers explain coding fundamentals while working on the projects. We have noticed this method to be an excellent way to enhance students’ learning experiences and to keep them engaged.
Who are the teachers at Ultimate Coders?
Our teachers are Computer Science graduates and students from local universities, and they are based in Canada. They are thoroughly vetted for their coding skills and teaching ability. We hold regular training for our teachers to improve their skillset. Our teachers go through background checks before joining Ultimate Coders.

We believe in utmost transparency and flexibility. There’s no long-term commitment with Ultimate Coders, our class plans are month-to-month, you can cancel your plan anytime with a month’s notice.
How do I decide the right program and level for my student?
We begin with evaluating students’ prior experience and projects they’re interested in during the free trial class. After our initial assessment, we recommend a program that matches their objectives and keeps them interested in learning. Assigning students at the right level is important for their long-term success. As we progress with classes, based on a student’s learning pace and ability, we realign our lesson plans.
What does a typical In-person class look like?
Our in-person classes are scheduled, students meet with their teacher at a recurring time each week. When a student arrives in the classroom, he/she is allocated a computer or a robot to work on the project. The assigned teacher always stays with the student to answer and explain lessons. A teacher always reviews completed work and frequently challenges students to think outside the box to make design improvements.
What does a typical online class look like?
A student joins the Zoom meeting using a link sent on their email to access the online classroom, students meet with their teacher at a scheduled time each week. The student needs a computer with a microphone and speaker (camera optional) along with an internet connection. The teacher views student’s screen and guides them to work on their next project after checking their previous homework. Zoom meeting is very interactive, and teachers maintain constant communication with students to keep them engaged.
