Tokyo Academics (TA) is the passion project of a constellation of teachers, researchers, and academics from around the world. Since 2012, we’ve evolved from a few university friends to a growing number of part-time and full-time individuals located in Tokyo, as well as working remotely. We are an organization of experts deeply passionate about helping students meet their potential and capture the opportunities of the future.
Tokyo Coding Club (TCC) is the tech division within Tokyo Academics and we are a year-round after school & weekend programming, robotics and digital arts learning center which serves students of ages 7 to 18 here in Tokyo and also around the world through our remote lessons. Through our one on one tutoring lessons and group classes that are tailored for each individual student, we help to expand our students’ potential in the digital age by equipping them with the knowledge, skills and mindset needed to succeed in today’s world.
Tokyo Coding Club’s seasonal camps combine intensive programming lessons with activities intended to build an affinity for nature. Half the day is spent in programming or robotics classes, and half the day is spent doing outdoor activities like hiking, rafting, sledding, and obstacle courses!
