About Us

We’re dedicated to teaching future innovators

Geekedu was founded on the idea that every kid should have the opportunity to learn Computer Science and Mathematics, regardless of their background or finances. Classes are designed to nurture critical thinking and problem-solving skills while keeping children excited and engaged. Our team of qualified instructors are specially paired with each child to provide the best learning experience possible.

Who are we?

Geekedu was founded in 2015 by a group of like-minded geeks working as software engineers at Google and Amazon.  We wanted to share our passion for Computer Science and Mathematics to inspire kids to learn and grow. We developed this into our “Geek philosophy” that learning to code should be accessible and affordable for every child and teenager.

Our custom award-winning curriculum presents JavaScript, Python, Java, and C++ in a unique and engaging style. Our Matrix Computational-Thinking Curriculum is based on the research of Dr. Michael Genesereth who published the Stanford CTSA K-12 Computer Science Standards.

Since 2016, over 100,000 students have completed our structured course sequence. Over 97% of our students have continued their Computer Science and Mathematics education at  a post-secondary institution.

We are partnered with over 120 schools and organizations in North America to supplement the standard school curriculum. It is our goal to help every student gain the skills to succeed, create, and define the future of technology.

John
“I love teaching with Geekedu. The students are the best part of the job. They are some of the brightest kids I have ever worked with. Each of my students is so unique and interesting, but they all have enthusiasm for their learning. It makes teaching these challenging subjects so much easier. I’m always happy to see students succeed and feel proud when they start applying their knowledge.”
Instructor John
Tina
“Teaching with Geekedu gives me the opportunity to share my love of STEM with the minds of the future. Not only do they learn how to code, but they learn how to think critically and use what they have to their advantage. Nothing brings me more enjoyment than seeing my  students grasp a concept or create something that they’re proud of. No matter what experience level the student is at, there is something for everyone!”
Instructor Tina
Vitis
“I wish there had been something like this when I was younger. Math and Computer Science were sometimes dry or hard to understand when I was younger. I had to discover things for myself until university. Now I have the privilege of getting younger children involved in this complex and interesting world! I can’t wait to see how successful my students will be in the future!”
Instructor Vitis
Dr. Jameson
“There’s more to Computer Science and Mathematics than is taught in school. I love being able to share the more exciting sides of some difficult subject matter. It’s inspiring to see students grasp difficult concepts and be motivated to learn, solve problems and create. Working 1:1 means I get to spend time with each student and gives me the freedom to teach them in a way that the students can connect with.”
Instructor Dr. Jameson
Liz
“I get to introduce beginner students to Computer Science and I want them to feel confident from the very first lesson. I believe in maintaining positivity in the lessons, so students feel encouraged and supported. This leads my students to a deeper understanding of the concepts, but also kids that are excited to start class every week!”
Instructor Liz
Emma
“Geekedu’s curriculum is great to teach. It’s structured and organized but allows me to form a connection with my students. It’s great to be able to explain concepts in ways that students can understand. Geekedu makes math more than an abstract concept. It’s a valuable way for kids to see and understand the world.”
Instructor Emma
Dr. Peter
“The students are the best part of this job! I love working with these kids and seeing them learn to code. Some of the best experiences are working with children who were hesitant or shy. I get to watch them blossom, gain knowledge and get excited to share it. It’s so cool to be able to help children gain confidence through learning.”
Instructor Dr. Peter
Christian
“Meet Christian, he’s one of Geekedu’s Teen Ambassador. Christian is a Grade 12 student from Ontario, Canada. Besides from Geekedu, he is also a Teen Ambassador for Canada Learning Code and also an upcoming student at Sheridan College where he is going to complete his bachelor’s degree in Information Security. Christian is also a strong advocate for STEM education and Geekedu is the perfect place to promote it.”
Teen Ambassador Christian
Justin
“Watching the students grow throughout our time together is amazing. The curriculum helps kids go from zero to hero and provides such a strong foundation for advanced programming. All of my students learn how to think and approach problems systematically so that they can tackle even harder problems later on. I definitely would have taken this if it was available when I was in high school.”
Instructor Justin
Rae
"At this present time, it is essential that students are literate in computer science. We provides students with the opportunity to gain essential skills in a way that is unintimidating, easily approachable, and with a gentle learning curve. While I personally did not have the chance to learn in-depth computer science skills during elementary school, I am enthusiastic to be a part of a team where I can allow new students to gain these skills. I look forward to how my students will apply their programming knowledge to tomorrow's problems!"
Instructor Rae
Leon
"I enjoy teaching young students the beauty of mathematics, and seeing them improve every week. It is very rewarding for me to see the "Eureka!" moment on my students' faces as we work through complex math contest questions and difficult textbook problems. As someone who is pursuing to become a high school teacher, I thoroughly look forward to my lessons with those ambiguous students!"
Instructor Leon
Grace
"Watching the students grow from absolute beginners to seeing them complete their first complex programming project is definitely the best part of this job. Even though Computer Science can sometimes be seen as technical and tedious, nothing beats the joy of making a working program or a fun game you can play after all the hard work! In fact, Geekedu's curriculum makes learning Computer Science concepts much easier, and always allows students to apply the skills they've learned along the way."
Instructor Grace
Michael
"Seeing the spark light up in a student's eyes when they finally grasp a difficult topic is the best part of the job for me. I love sharing my passion for computer science with each of my students who are all equally passionate to learn. Moreover, I find that the curriculum helps students develop both critical and systematic approaches to problem solving which is not only essential in computer science, but most STEM fields in general. It is great to see students devise novel solutions to problems they are given and apply their knowledge in practical projects."
