Shoshana C.

8 Science lessons

I have so much to thank Philip for. Not only is he very knowledgeable in computer science, he has a special way to communicate with his student, which makes his lessons 100 percent successful. My son (good student, strong in math, going to a decent college) had a very difficult time with Computer Science in his senior year. He was lost in class for his peers were already far advanced and his teacher conducted class for the advanced students. He vowed he would never study computer science.
Lorraine B.

He is working on concepts covered on the AP computer science exam with the overall goal to maximize his score. Update: 6/16/14: Subject: AP Computer Science: We have Bruce Martin to thank for not only helping our son understand coding (Java programming), but more importantly helping to bring back his passion for computer science lost by the rote memorization and top-heavy AP practice-exam testing required in preparation for the AP exam.
