At Testing Mom, we strive to provide the highest quality educational experience for all our students. If a class does not meet the required minimum number of enrolled students, rather than canceling the class entirely, we reserve the right to modify the structure of the sessions. In such cases, the affected class may be transitioned into an accelerated format. This modification aims to maintain the integrity of the curriculum while providing a more personalized and intensive learning experience for enrolled students. Rest assured, the quality of the class content and instruction will remain consistent, and any adjustments made will be in the best interest of enhancing their learning journey.

Instructor Bio:

Hi, I'm Mr. Cardenas! I have 3 years of teaching experience with Elementary, Middle, and High School Students. I have over 6 years of experience tutoring Elementary to Freshman College Students. All kids have different learning styles and can not be taught the same way. Understanding how one student thinks, how one learns and processes information is key to a successful session. Not only that it will keep them engaged, and interested. 


Educational Background, Degrees, Licenses:

  • Game Designer and Programmer
  • Bachelor of Science


Favorite Quote:

  • “In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.” -Yoda

Fun Fact:

  • Video games will be the new normal in teaching, training, and work environment 


Frankie says:

The instructor is patient and friendly. My child finds it easy to follow along and said the knowledge helped him to find more tools to design his games.

Chris says:

Our daughter was new to Minecraft online and this was a great starter program for her. The instructor was patient and supportive. Highly recommended. Our daughter has done a lot of language learning but this allows her to expand into a variety of projects using what she has learned and learn new things.
