About Blake

Greetings! I'm Blake Eldridge, a Computer Science enthusiast currently pursuing my degree at the esteemed University of Manchester. My journey in the realm of programming spans over 6 years, during which I've undertaken a multitude of projects ranging from captivating video games to dynamic websites and cutting-edge machine learning applications.

Driven by a passion for continuous learning, I've consistently aimed for excellence, securing top marks in both my A levels and GCSEs. Now, my goal is to share this wealth of knowledge with students, empowering them to achieve their academic aspirations and emerge triumphant on results day.

My teaching experience spans over 2 years, where I've had the pleasure of instructing children in both group settings and one-on-one sessions. This hands-on involvement was gained through my roles at CodeNinjas and CodeCamp, where I lead afterschool clubs and summer camps, instilling foundational computer science skills in the younger generation.

Having navigated the challenges of academia successfully, I'm well-equipped to guide my students through any hurdles they encounter, fostering a profound understanding of complex topics. My ultimate wish is to see my students not just pass their studies, but excel, leaving them with grades they can take pride in and a clear path toward the career of their dreams. Join me on this educational journey, and let's pave the way to success together.

Tutoring Style

In Computer Science, my area of expertise and personal favorite, I am enthusiastic about providing guidance at both A level and GCSE levels. From troubleshooting course content issues to hands-on programming and coding challenges, I offer a holistic approach. For beginners, I've developed a customized Python programming curriculum, carefully designed to take students from foundational knowledge to a solid understanding. Our weekly sessions will involve engaging activities, reinforcing fundamental concepts, and incorporating homework tasks to foster independent learning.

This curriculum is structured to introduce new content, reinforce understanding through tasks, and encourage independent learning through homework activities. Once a strong foundation is established, our exploration broadens to diverse computer science topics. Starting with video game development, we'll delve into new programming paradigms and complex algorithms, all while enjoying the process of creating personalized games. Further topics, such as web development, machine learning, and more, can be explored based on the student's individual interests.

My tutoring sessions cater to students aged 13 and above with a keen interest in computer science, game development, or those eager to acquire a new skill. Each hour-long session is designed to be informative, structured, and tailored to the unique learning journey of the student. Together, we'll navigate the complexities of computer science, laying a foundation for success in academic pursuits and beyond.
