Dear RP4K Team, After taking all science camps and clubs available in Ottawa my son expressed an interest in computer programming. I started searching for classes but couldn’t find anything interesting until I came across RP4K. I am so grateful I found the program because this is the best thing I have done for my […]
Since 2011, our son and daughter have taken 10 courses each with RP4K at two different locations. The courses are very well designed and the instructors have all been wonderful. In fact, most of the instructors have become mentors to our children throughout the 27 weeks they work together. The recruiting process at RP4K works […]
It is my pleasure to write a testimonial for RP4K. My name is Dr. Margarita (Rita) Vinnikov. I was employed by RP4K as a part-time game programming instructor/on-location-supervisor since 2004. During my 12 years with the organization, I acquired multiple degrees including a Bachelor in Education and a PhD in Computer Science, while teaching game […]
We have two kids who have been on regular enrollment at R4PK for a few years now, so I think we are in a position to judge the effectiveness of the program. My twelve-year-old son is a strong programmer by now after moving through various languages (VB, C#, C++, Java) and has built enough of […]
Thaya, our 8 year old daughter joined the beginner’s coding class at Real Programming 4 Kids in 2017. She absolutely loves everything about the program!! The morning of her second session in the program, I shared with her that I was going to be taking her that afternoon again. She cheered with excitement. I was […]
I am providing you with this letter as a form of testimonial, and I should say at the outset that it was unsolicited and came about on my own initiative after I received one of your emails with current registration attachments and contacted you to inform you that my children were now no longer able to enroll again
My name is Fernando. 10 years ago I was an RP4K student. Now I’m a professional game developer. RP4K was a really special experience for me during my youth. RP4K got me started with the programming languages that I use today.
I want to congratulate you on receiving the Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce Business Achievement Award. It was a wonderful evening of celebration of business in Richmond Hill.
I am happy that all the hard work is paying off. You know that you can always use us as a reference! Chris has greatly benefited from RP4K! he is at UW and WLU in a double degree 5 yr Co-op.
I am writing to you to let you know what a difference Real programming has made for my son and our family. Our son Leonardo has had difficulty in school since the early years.
I would like to thank Elliott and the teachers at Real Programming 4 Kids for the effort they put into their programs and their interest in the students. In 2003, when my son was about 10 years old he expressed an interest in making video games.
When I first picked up the phone and called you in 2005, I was very excited to hear that you use Visual Basic, a real programming language! Over the next 5 years, my son Brendan has taken three of your Visual Basic Game Programming courses, a C++ course, and a C# course.
For the past few years, my son Gabriel has been attending the Real Programming 4 Kids program at St. Mildred’s and I believe that with attending this fun, challenging, interactive, structural gaming program that it has aicled Gabriel in being able to achieve excellent marks at school in Math.
My name is Marie Deslauriers, and I took my first class with RP4K when I was sixteen, learning C. with the sidescroller game Kenny (now Megaman).
My name is Brandon Smith, back in grade 5 or 6 I began taking courses from you, which includes Pacman, Asteroids, DirectX and HL Mods, which by the way were awesome courses with great people.
My name is Austin Chamney, and I have been attending courses at Real Programming for Kids since I was thirteen years old. I started off programming the original Donkey Kong game with the beginner language Visual Basic.
I would love to talk about how RP4K influenced my career choices so far. RP4K helped me identify very early on in my life a few things that really helped shape my future career direction.
It was about 8 years ago that my son, Jacob Jackson, did a couple of your camps at Branksome Hall and I just wanted to thank you for lighting a programming fire under him.
Our experience was extraordinary. All three of them thoroughly enjoyed the program. I was able to observe our children several times through the week and witnessed first hand their high level of interest and engagement.
I was a student of Real Programming 4 Kids when I was growing up in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the 90s. I’m 30 years old now with a life based around programming.
Dear Elliott: Thank you so much for the programs that you offer at RP4K. Gabriel had an awesome time and learned so much! You have excellent instructors. Joseph, Anthony and Zach are very professional and impressive knowledge. Gabriel liked them all, but loved Zach’s teaching methodology! Thank you 🙂
