Juni Learning has been a wonderful experience for my son! His programming teachers for Scratch and Python have been supportive, reliable, and flexible. My son was intimidated to have a college student as his teacher but now I think it really helps his confidence to have such a kind mentor help him learn computer programming! We have only had great experiences with Juni Learning.
This experience has been exciting, eye-opening, and always challenging in a wonderful way both student and parent :)
