Private Lessons From the Pros
Students work one on one with dedicated professional gaming industry instructors on a track that meets their individual needs. Students have the ability to switch tracks as their interests grow and change over time.
Regardless of track or program, our curriculum is focused on projects. Whatever your passion, whether it’s robotics, circuitry, game design, or coding, we’ll find a project that excites you and grows your skills. With our flexible, project-based curriculum, students can start almost anywhere and learn everything necessary to challenge themselves while creating amazing results.
Every project builds towards sharing its result. Students as young as six learn to build real applications in age-appropriate tools. Whether the project is in Construct3 or pro-grade Unity and Unreal game engines, they’ll be able to publish and share their work through itch.io or browser-playable links from Repl.It and Scratch. Art students also share their 2D and 3D work online on platforms like Deviant Art and Sketchfab.
Portfolios matter. Students love to look back and see how they’ve grown. For parents, employers, and educators, portfolios illustrate a student’s capabilities and the level of experience they’ve attained. Far from an unknown quantity, the student has a proven record, and it’s easy to see what they’ve mastered and what special flair they are expressing.
Students and parents alike are loving Game-U. Start your free trial today!
Matthew loves working one on one with his instructor, Rob. He benefits so much from the personal attention and feels comfortable asking questions. I can see him growing as he does something he loves. He can’t wait for his next sessions!
I love my 1:1 with Courtney! We can spend our time focusing on just me and my project and what I am most interested in doing. I have learned so much! I can ask all the questions I need and want – big, small or weird. I am only 8 after all, but I know so much already.
