Computer Science

Computer science tutoring has increased dramatically since Cambridge Coaching was founded. It has become one our most popular subjects and we’ve been able to recruit some of the most talented doctoral candidates and software engineers to join our team. Many of our tutors are passionate coders, who love to share their computer wizardry with students. We routinely work with high school and undergraduate students looking to hone their programming skills in both customized tutorials, or alongside a course. If you are interested in learning to program, conquering the AP or GRE, or preparing for a career in technology, we can help you.

 

Popular Subjects: Introduction to Computer Science (C, PHP, JavaScript, SQL, CSS, HTML), Discrete Math for Computer Science, Systems Programming
Tests: AP Computer Science A, Computer Science GRE Subject Test
