Java Programming Fundamentals in Alice and Eclipse (young learners)

This course aims to engage learners with little or no programming experience to create Java programs. Participants are introduced to object-oriented programming concepts, terminology and syntax, and the steps required to create basic Java programs using the Alice and Eclipse interactive development environments. Hand-on practice enables learners to experience the power of computer programming.

The JavaTM programming language can be challenging for computer programmers with limited or no experience in object-oriented programming. To provide an easy introduction to Java, Alice is explored first in this course, so that fundamental principles and skills are established using 3D animations in a fun, visually rich environment.

When learners become familiar with the concepts of object-oriented programming, they can proceed with the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), which is widely used in computer programming. It contains a basic workspace and an extendable plug-in system for customising the environment.

The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Extra information

It is recommended that learners have a desktop computer or laptop to work on practical assessments and projects.

About Me

As a teacher specialized in programming and ICT, I provide material and resources for the development of analytical, critical, and computational thinking, while also encouraging my students to be creative. I design activities for the cultivation of interpersonal and social skills and a team-working ethos, which are essential for establishing a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Furthermore, I aim to develop and foster a secure IT environment and an e-safe culture.

I have designed and implemented programming courses not only for young but also adult learners. Some of those courses do not require prior programming experience while some others are more advanced so that learners can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Since 2014, I have also been authorized to teach Maths in light of my mathematical background from my university studies. Therefore, in addition to my computer programming courses, I offer primary and secondary maths lessons.

Excellent teacher!
Fantastic! Ilias really prepared well and took the time to understand what my son needed. He was very positive and encouraging and we look forward to the next lesson!
Are you dreaming of creating your own games, animations or interactive stories? This course aims to enagage learners regardless of their programming experience. The course for beginners starts with a description of the interface and how you can import or create various backgrounds or objects. An introduction to basic command blocks follows, and as the course progresses, learners are given many opportunities to be creative, practise analytical and critical thinking, and combine various command blocks to add functionality to their programs. The course also aims to foster effective communication, as learners have the opportunity to share their creations on Scratch community, receive feedback and exchange ideas with other members. This course is suitable for children and teenagers.
Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.
Python is a programming language with a simple syntax, similar to the English language. It allows developers to write programs with fewer lines than some other programming languages. It can be used in many areas such as web development, mathematics, science, education and general purpose software development. This course aims to demonstrate how Python can be used to create solutions to real-life problems or programs that can be used to faciltate tasks performed at school, in a workplace or at home. It aims to engage not only learners with advanced programming experience but also those who have little or not any experience at all. Creative and critical thinking are continuously encouraged during the lessons. Relevant topics: - Input/Output - Data types and variables - Operators - Lists,tuples, sets - If / else - Loops - Functions - Lambda - Classes/Objects - Inheritance - Iterators - Scope - File handling - Modules - NumPy - Python Maplotlib - Python SciPy The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners. Younger learners may prefer to start with my course entitled “Create fun games and interactive programs in Python”.

Tutoring and Test Practice: Maths/Economics/Geography/History/Political science classes
I specialize in tutoring subjects such as Math, Geography, History, Political Science, and Economics. My primary objective is to ignite and maintain my students' enthusiasm for the subjects they are studying. I offer assistance in various topics they may find challenging. Additionally, I regularly administer brief tests to ensure their progress in the respective subjects.

Aline
Dutch lessons or help with homework. (From French or English)
I completed my entire secondary education in Dutch and completed my university studies in Dutch at VUB. I am able to provide valuable help to your children with their Dutch homework. In addition, I am also able to provide in-depth lessons to both secondary school students and young adults.

Laetitia
Help with homework
I offer my services as a teacher particular for homework help as well as for French, Dutch and English. French being my mother tongue, I have no trouble helping people with shortcomings in this area. Furthermore, i love reading so i always try to maintain a correct vocabulary and my grammar rules. Concerning English I am of a level C1 + according to the frame common European reference point for languages. My grammar, my conjugation and my vocabulary are therefore of a very good level. English is a language that I maintain a lot thanks to my correspondents but also through the films, books, music ... Finally, for Dutch, I am B2 (still according to the framework) and my grammar and conjugation bases are solid. I can easily help people of a level beginner in learning this language. It is also a language that I maintain through book or programs but also thanks to some bilingual knowledge in my entourage. Also, patient and loving nature to teach, I can also be a help for homework or primary level work or secondary. Finally, I am very available because I will reorient myself in my studies which gives me more free time to give course. I can move home with no problem no matter the distance while respecting punctuality.

Sofia
English for beginners and intermediates - written and oral
Who the courses are for: anyone who wants to learn English from scratch or who wants to improve their level of English (up to B2). I am also happy to teach children. The location: I would like the location not to be too far from the city, preferably in a library or a quiet place. I can also teach at home, but this will have to be discussed with my roommates. Availability: I do not yet know the final hours of my internship, but in principle I will not be available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. From then on, I am available, especially on weekends. The method: At the beginning, it is a good idea to do a test according to the level you want to achieve in order to determine which are the most important aspects to improve. Then the lessons will be organized according to the student's personal or professional interests, because I think it is more effective and more fun to learn a language when you combine learning with something you love. I will use my creativity to promote smooth and engaging learning.

Tatiana
Learn English while having fun through games and activities + School support
Hello, I am starting as a private English teacher because I recently had the experience of giving lessons to a 7 year old child for 6 months where I created all kinds of games and activities that I dream of reusing. He was very happy about it and so were his parents. It also greatly blossomed for me as a teacher and my deepening of the language. I took English lessons for a month in Glasgow and developed my oral skills for 4 months in Vancouver thereafter. While staying in Brussels, I continued my advanced learning at EPFC and having knowledge with whom I speak exclusively in English, I practice daily. For the sake of precision, and confidence with the student, I prefer to teach children, adolescents and in tutoring. I am an internship facilitator, so I am used to taking care of children of all ages and in contact with them. Do not hesitate to contact me, I remain at your disposal for any questions or for a course. Tatiana

Sarah
Tutoring in all subjects for early secondary school students in English and/or French.
I am a motivated and enthusiastic teacher who will be dedicated to you or your children's success at school. I studied Latin for 5 years and Ancient greek for 3 years at a Belgian High School. Afterward, I continued my education at an international school (UWC) where the International Baccalaureate was taught, focusing on English Literature, Philosophy, and History. Hence I am fluent in French and English and can tutor in both languages. I am currently studying to earn a bachelor's degree at ESADE in politics, economics, and international law. I am also taking classes in English literature on the side. Not only will I be helping students in all subjects of secondary school but I will also help them to create strategies to work better and enjoy learning. My ultimate goal for every student is that eventually, they would not need me anymore as I would have given them all the necessary tools to succeed by themselves.

Nicolas
Learn French and everything around it ! French is not only a language
French is not only a language, it's also a culture :) I sincerely believe you cannot really master a language if you don't take a deep dive into what makes it unique and living, and by that I mean undergoing so many transformations as we speak it everyday. I am as much interested in sharing this culture and this language that I love so much, as I am in learning from you and what you can teach me. If we do that in French (but English can help as a support, I will help you translate what you mean in French), then I believe spectacular progress is to be expected !

Alex
Private tuition from primary to secondary school in Brussels
Graduate of general secondary and soon student to the superior, I offer tutoring, tutoring in all subjects for primary and secondary students. These courses can be one-off or regular with follow-up. I also propose the options Maths strong and Sciences strong, as well as Latin (my previous options). Do you have problems in math, science, languages (Dutch / English / Latin) or in other subjects? Contact me to set a date that suits you for the 1st class. I am comfortable with children, being a regular babysitter and facilitator. My method is based on the needs and demands of the student, his parents. You tell me what are your difficulties in a subject or questions less successful: I explain the tips, we do exercises and I correct them with you or for the next course.
