Technology and jobs are evolving faster than schools can keep up.

As parents, we all want to equip our children for a bright future. Did you know that coding helps kids improve confidence and exam grades? Learning to code also boosts problem solving skills and resilience.
It's the best after-school activity your child can do.

Children are being consumedby devices and technology

Our mission is to help kids channel their obsession with technology into something that helps them expand their knowledge instead of simply distracting them or entertaining them. Your child deserves a fun place that helps them explore and understand technology.

My son Ali participated in his first Junior Coding and Robotics & Coding sessions. He had an awesome time at Skill Samurai, and has had a great experience gaining life long coding knowledge and skills.



Our 9-year old daughter was amazed to have programmed her first game app she was very proud of. Her 3-year brother was also allowed to sit in and with the assistance of the coaches, was able to follow along and ended up creating his own app game as well.

The fact that the coaches are able teach as young as my boy (which has a very short attention span) speaks so much of how engaging their courses are and how effective their teaching methods were. 



They can’t wait to go back! There was something quite empowering about it for the kids when they realised they can be in charge of what the computer does, rather than just reacting to someone else’s program. If you want your kids to be in charge of what they do online, learning coding is the way to go. Skill Samurai nailed the balance between learning skills and fun.. Thanks Jamie! We’ll be back.

that children should have access to a personalised learning path, because no two children are the same!

  • How does your pricing work, what is a membership?

    We think 'pay-by-the-term' is outdated. We believe in 'pay-as-you-go'. 
    One simple weekly price, no contracts. The most flexible in the industry. 
    Pause your membership at any time. Need to go on holidays or take a break? No problem, we have you covered. Why pay for a service that you aren't using? That's outdated! 

  • My child is struggling at school, will coding help? 

    Most people don't know, but coding helps kids improve across almost all subject areas (The research proves it). We also know that some kids struggle with maths/English Tutors, so coding classes can be a great way to bridge the gap and help students improve exam grades and build a love of learning. 

  • Do you offer make-up classes if my child misses a class?

    Yes, absolutely. We've designed our classes to be family-friendly! Our goal is to be the most flexible in the industry. The make-up class can be in the same week or following week. 

  • If we miss a class will my child fall behind?

    No. Your child will never fall behind at Skill Samurai. Each child works on their own projects, at their own pace. We use a project-based learning methodology. 
    If you miss a week, or more, they'll pick up right where they left off. It's the way education ought to be!

  • My child already learns coding at school, should they do more?

    Definitely! Like many subjects, school introduces students to the basic concepts. If your child has shown an interest in coding (computer programming), our classes will build on that knowledge and take students to advanced levels, which schools can not provide. Our curriculum builds into long-term career skills and certifications. 

  • What if my child doesn't like it?

    No Problem, there are no contracts or pre paid terms. Students attend class on a pay-as-you go basis. If at any time your child loses interest, simply let us know and we'll stop your payments. Just try to give us 7 days notice so that we can process things. 
    We're parents too, which is why we believe in keeping things simple and flexible! 

  • I have a busy schedule, how flexible is your timetable?

    We get it, family schedules can be hectic. We've designed a world-class curriculum that is project based and self-paced. What does that mean? It means that your child can attend any scheduled class, any day. If you need to cancel at short notice, no problem, our booking system allows you to easily cancel, book and rebook. We've designed it especially for busy families.  

  • My child can't focus for long periods, is coding right for them?

    Our classes are one hour in duration, the perfect length to hold a students attention and achieve learning outcomes. Each class is divided into bite sized lessons and focused on a project that is aligned with their interests (i.e. Minecraft, websites Roblox, apps, etc)... Perfect for kids with short attention spans! 

  • My child already has a maths/English tutor, do they need to learn coding?

    Coding is a perfect supplement for kids who are already working with tutors. 
    Most people don't know, but coding helps kids improve across almost all subject areas (The research proves it). 
    Coding can also be a good alternative to tutoring. If your child needs a break from tutoring, but they still need help, coding is the perfect solution. This is surprisingly common, when a child is struggling with say maths or English, the last thing they want, is to attend attend classes/tutoring. 

  • My child is addicted to devices and gaming, is more screen-time a good idea?

    Learning to code can be one of the best ways to change their focus and reduce their addiction. Instead of passively consuming videos and games, students learn how their favourite websites and games are created. 
    Students then crave knowledge and learning, they find themselves wanting to create their own technology rather than being controlled by it! 

  • My child is struggling socially, how can coding classes help? 

    Put simply, coding is a great way to bring like-minded kids together. Some of our curriculum and holiday camps are team oriented, so it's a great way to build social skills. You never know, they might meet (or become) the next Steve Jobs or Elon Musk. 

  • As a parent, I don't know anything about coding? Do I need to learn the basics? 

    You don't need to know how to play Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.14 in order to teach your child the piano... That's our job... Not teaching piano, but teaching kids to code. 
    Seriously though, you don't need to be tech savvy, our coaches will guide your child so that they thrive... Not just as programmers, but as tech creators, innovators and students. 

  • Are the classes face to face or online? 

    Our classes are all conducted face to face in small group settings. The research shows that face to face learning produces the best results and leads to other important outcomes like teamwork, leadership, confidence and resilience. 

  • Why should we choose Skill Samurai for our child? 

    Each Student has a personalised learning path.

    Up to 40% of students are disengaged at school. Some, because they are advanced, and not being challenged enough. At the other end of the spectrum, some children are struggling to keep up… this often leads to self-esteem issues and diminished career opportunities. At Skill Samurai, we believe that there’s a better way!

    Our classes are self-paced, typically project based learning. This means that each student will work on their own project at their own pace.

    Each student can experience success at their own pace without being compared to others. If they are advanced, then we tailor their projects to ensure that they are suitably challenged… On the other hand, we know that some students require additional support and nurturing. Our classes allow for all students to thrive no matter their skill or ability.

    Small Class Sizes Maximum of 1:10 Student teacher ratios, many classes only have 2-5 students. This allows plenty of time in class for one on one coaching and guidance.

    Many parents are worried that their child might be falling behind at school. It’s proven that coding helps kids improve exam grades and academic performance. We also help kids build confidence and resilience, Problem solving skills, computational thinking, creative thinking… plus they’ll be learning skills to help them in future careers (no matter what career they chose).
