Computer programming opens a huge spectrum of possibilities to problem solving in different academic areas, nonetheless many students struggle to learn it. My approach to tuition involves using the tutees very own interests as an initial point to learn the logic of programming with practices of increasing complexity. In this way the knowledge is constructive and easy to follow, allowing the tutee to familiarise with the ‘programming building blocks’ to use them creatively. From this point a regular practice, with eventual help, develops the tutees confidence to code and improves his/her technique. Once the tutee has developed these skills a migration to other languages is straightforward.
