Fantastic Computer Science Tutor!

Jessica is a fantastic tutor! My son is taking AP Computer Science Principles as a freshman in high school. He struggled with the class second semester, but he was able to raise his grade to an A...with Jessica's help. I don't think this would have been possible without her. She also helped him with his final project and helped him prepare for the AP final. I would highly recommend Jessica. In just three or four sessions with Jessica, she helped my son understand the concepts he was struggling with. I'm so glad we found her. Worth every penny.

Nina, 7 lessons with Jessica

Confident and knowledgeable tutor

She helped get my son ready for AP Computer Science Principles Exam, just days before exam. She has a way of simplifying concepts and explaining examples that help clarify confusing topics. Overall, with her guidance she helped build his confidence heading into the exam.

Confident and knowledgeable tutor

She helped get my son ready for AP Computer Science Principles Exam, just days before exam. She calmly explained things he was confused on. After the session my teenager gave me a hug (amazing). Jessica was easy to communicate with and very flexible with our schedules. She even started early for him. Highly recommend. We booked more sessions with her!

Jessica gave my daughter just the right amount of help and encouragement. We also love that she had late hours for tutoring so close to the AP exams. We appreciate her patience and understanding.
