Our friends mentioned they loved Juni, and it was a straightforward decision to enroll. We didn’t even need to convince our children because our friend’s children were so enthusiastic about their classes. The updates after every class are extremely helpful, and the scheduling flexibility has allowed Juni to seamlessly integrate into our busy lives.
My son has taken classes with Juni for 3 years, progressing through Python 1, 2, and 3. His instructors are extremely skilled and relatable, as Juni works hard to match instructors to students’ interests. Outside of class, Juni provides real world case studies for students to practice their skills, and a supportive community to cheer each other on.
My hope with Juni was to advance my kids’ interest and exposure to coding. I’ve found that my kids quickly identify with their Juni Instructors, and they tend to ask a lot of questions and remain excited about coding.

My math course is very challenging, but my instructor helps me overcome the challenges and makes it enjoyable, so I enjoy every last bit of them.
My favorite thing about Juni is I can learn at my own pace. When I already know some concepts, we can move quickly through them and then we can spend more time on new topics. I look forward to my Juni classes all week!
Juni has changed my relationship with coding by showing me that I can share my coding with people for them to enjoy. When I was only learning to code, I didn’t share my programs with other people. Then in October, I decided to participate in Juni’s Open Challenge with my friends, and we won the competition. I felt great about it and wanted everyone to see it, because not only did we make an awesome game, but an amazing presentation as well.
Not only is this a great opportunity for the students, but to me, also represents the start of creating systems of education that are accessible as they are effective. Juni creates an environment that promotes learning and growth not only amongst students, but also within the community itself.
It’s really awesome to see students excited to keep going and be motivated by their own progress and success. I learn from them as much as they learn from me, and their ability to absorb lots of information quickly and apply it to challenging problems continues to amaze me.
I like teaching Algebra 1 because I see Algebra as the essential building blocks to constructing a base knowledge of mathematics. I love seeing concepts click for a student when they solve their first equation and graph their first line!
