Online Programming Tuition FAQs

Why study programming?

Programming is at the heart of computer science. Everything a computer does, it does by executing programs. To be able to control a computer, you need to know how it works from the inside out. Therefore, studying programming is essential to understanding how computers work and what they are capable of.

There are many reasons to learn programming, but one of the best is that programming is a creative and fun problem-solving activity. You will be able to design well-crafted solutions to problems with different challenges, and in the end, you will see your work come to life before your eyes.

Programming is challenging and fun at the same time because there are endless new things to learn, explore and discover. Learning to program is like learning a language. Studying it will help you develop the ability to think recursively, pay attention to details, and express your thoughts clearly through code. Computer programming and coding is an entire language in itself. Much like any other language it has it’s set ways of how it goes about. So integral is computer programming to our world, that if we look back, none of the latest inventions or the advances we have made over the past years would have been possible without it. A computer does not understanding the language that we humans use for communication. It has taken expert professionals years and years to develop a comprehensive coding language that any machine can translate into a command. This database of knowledge is exactly what a computer programming expert learns during their years of education. Have you ever wondered how computer literacy has skyrocketed over the past century? It’s because computer programmers and coding experts in the mid-1980s started writing codes for the devices we hold in our hands today, the progress and advance of computer science has been no miracle, it’s all in the decades of work put in by professionals. And that’s what makes it worthwhile pursuing. 

 What university degrees is programming useful for?

If you know how to understand and write computer programs, then your understanding of computers can be useful for a number of college degrees ranging from computer science to mathematics, business, finance, science and others. Computer programming is fundamental to solving problems with computers in a variety of fields and can be used in all sorts of areas.

Software engineering and computer programming are both degrees that prepare you for a career in programming or developing software. These degrees are often taken by people who want to become programmers, developers or IT specialists.

What careers can a programming degree lead to?

Studying programming can prepare you well for a career as a computer programmer or software developer. It is also one of the best ways to become a good operations manager or technical consultant. And it's not hard to see why - once you know how computers work, what they are capable of, and how programs run on them, your overall understanding of technology will be much greater, which will help you in most computer-related jobs. 

Programming is a fundamental skill for all software developers, and some programmers often say that once you know how to program, everything else becomes easier. In the real world, most companies require their employees to have knowledge of several programming languages, or at least a basic knowledge of one or two. Learning how to do programming benefits you tremendously if you are interested in learning coding. You can expect a good ratio of overlap between both subjects if you study them together. Thus, a degree in computer programming can also help in coding. This can make for a very solid foundation for a career as a web developer at a leading organisation. 

Programming is one of those things you should study, not with the expectation that it will necessarily lead to a career in software development, but because it trains your brain to think logically and solve problems. This skill could come in handy regardless of your future career choice, and it's never too late to learn it.

How does programming help in a non-computer-related career?

In today's highly competitive and technologically advanced world, more and more employers are looking for applicants who have a broad range of skills. Even for a non-technical position, applicants need to develop some technical skills to be comfortable in the workplace.

Any job that involves computers could benefit from programming skills, even if only in a small way. Employers are looking for candidates who are not only experts in their field, but also have a general knowledge of various fields, including computer science and technology. This means that if you know how to write programs, you will have a competitive advantage over other applicants, making you even more desirable to potential employers.

How expert tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
