Today, children are growing up as the first generation of a new digital world. PurpleTutor aims to help parents ensure that their child’s relation to technology is not just that of a passive tech consumer. PurpleTutor’s mission is not limited to just teaching children on how to be a tech creator – PurpleTutor's coaches are of the opinion that each kid can be a Future Tech Leader!
Experts of PurpleTutor deeply believe that being Tech Leaders is about Excellence and Independence. Hence, they are obsessed with building Independent Coding Confidence in every single child. Meaning that lessons offered by PurpleTutor are not dependent on the teachers, only facilitated by them. Every project done by children with PurpleTutor courses is measured not just on the output but on kids’ confidence & ability to make it entirely on their own. As ambitious as it sounds, without it PurpleTutor feel they haven’t done their job.
My son started his first day of training with the idea of stepping into the coding world, where he can develop his skills and improvise them. His artistic creativity was discovered and explored by himself during the program. He's in such a phase where he is keen on learning more of it and thanks to our tutor. I would definitely recommend everyone to be a part of the program and develop and find their hidden talents.

PurpleTutor focuses on developing ‘skills’ rather than ‘syntax’, to make children:
- Global Collaborators
- Computational Thinkers
- Digital Citizens
- Innovative Designers
Your child will learn computational thinking skills, which are a set of skills required to understand and create technologies of the future.
Skills such as Decomposition – where they learn to solve a big problem by breaking it down into smaller problems rather than getting overwhelmed by it, or Abstraction – where they are able to identify useful information and extract it from a huge pile of data.
I would like to say a huge thank you to PurpleTutor who is delivering amazing classes to my son, Yaroslav. My son always prepares homework himself and is very excited about the classes. I am impressed by the speed and quality with which he is learning. I am very happy that we enrolled my son in these classes and they are absolutely worth every dollar.
