Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: We offer private lessons to make your own computer game. We do this by adding our professional design, programming and artistic skills to your creative directions. This is like hiring a developer to make your game, but along the way, you learn how to do it yourself. We also provide the tools to do it on your home computer at no additional cost to you. No one else can provide this kind of specialized professional training on a flexible one-on-one basis. We love that we can make games with new people, at any age and at any skill level. We love that everyone has a sense of what is fun, and that we can build from that toward a unique game that looks professional. We especially enjoy seeing smiles on the faces of players of these games, and seeing the pride of the students who made them.

My 9 year old son not only learned about the basics of videogame design, but thoroughly enjoyed each lesson. Each lesson was two hours long, and I thought that may be tough, but he loved it.

My first and fourth grade girls had a blast brainstorming, developing and executing a video game. "Making" the game was super fun, but it also gave them a good survey of computer programming, audio files, graphic design and even dealing with glitches aka bugs. My fourth grader designed a board game based on the experience and can't wait to implement it as a video game. Not that the first one isn't fun. I actually played for hours... (not telling the kids)

The classes that were provided gave my grandson plenty of opportunity to learn and explore possibilities, gave him a basic understanding of what goes into creating a video game, and use his creativity to assemble his own unique game! Lots of fun & good use of brain power!

Glenn taught a class my son participated in. The kids designed and created an interactive game. I really enjoyed the detailed updates Glenn sent after every session. It was wonderful to know exactly what the kids worked on every time. And they had a great experience.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We charge by the hour with a base rate for one student, plus a discounted rate per additional student. If a computer is not available for the student (PC or Mac), we bring a computer to use during the lesson for an additional fee. Our pricing system is really very simple, and we keep the door open for flexibility, based on the needs of the students and the desired outcomes.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We simply introduce ourselves. Then, we discuss the customer's goals in general, and how I can facilitate those goal. Then, we plan a specific route to achieve those goals in detail and on a timeline. Depending on all this, our first meeting should end with a solid plan for success.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We pride ourselves in keeping up-to-date on the very latest in game development trends, from the technical to the creative. We are integral members of the vibrant game development community in the greater Los Angeles area. We are professionals in the Hollywood entertainment industry.
