About This Topic

Does your teen dream of majoring in STEM at an elite university? An impressive score on the AP® Computer Science Exam will catapult them above other applicants. Guided by iD Certified tutors who recently excelled in their own AP® Exams and went on to attend top universities, your teen will dive into key concepts from the test, including object-oriented programming and problem-solving in Java, fundamental concepts and algorithms in computer science, and more. Whatever their learning style, our elite tutors will create a study strategy that plays to their strengths, preparing them to achieve a score that commands attention and boosts their chances for acceptance.

Why prep for the AP® Exam?
  • Invest now, save later on tuition. If your teen scores high (typically 4 or above), their credits may transfer to college, allowing them to bypass prerequisite courses.
  • Stand out from peers. When applying to extra selective institutions, high exam scores help your teen compete against other elite applicants.
  • Success is within reach. Blind guessing and scores of 3 or less can negatively impact test-takers. Let our expert tutors equip your teen with the skills they need to achieve their top scores.

  • Develop and implement algorithms to solve problems
  • Debug programs and run code
  • Explain how and why code runs

Absolutely! Because our Online Private Lessons are 1-on-1 with an instructor, the curriculum is customized to meet your child's skill level, unique interests, and long-term goals. Whether they are just starting out or super advanced, our experienced instructors will engage them to bring out their best!

Our Online Private Lessons offer live, 1-on-1 learning with an experienced, USA-based instructor and curriculum tailored to your child's interests and skill level! Once you select a topic and purchase a lesson package, you can easily choose your instructor and schedule a 60-minute lesson for the date and time that works best for you.  

Once scheduled, you can share notes about your child and any specific goals they might have. When it's time for their lesson, your child will connect with their instructor via Zoom. You will receive a post-session progress report via email so you can track your child's success! 

Each child will need a Windows or Mac computer with audio and video capabilities. We do not recommend tablets or Chromebooks, as the multi-tasking ability between Zoom and other required software is often unreliable or nonexistent.
