Why Study Computer Science?

Computer science, although a novel addition to school education, is an invaluable educational tool for modern students. Everything in the today's world is underpinned by the computer program. Algorithms and coding are now integral parts of problem solving and business decision making; all institutions from banks to charities to tutoring agencies need IT developers. As our society's dependence on computers and devices deepens, having even a basic understanding of how computers, algorithms and the internet work will be ever more important. Therefore, computer science is also one of the very best subjects to specialise in at school and university to ensure your future employability.

We can teach computer science from school to university level and can help with everything from the fundamental principles of computer science to algorithms and how the internet works. We have tutors who can teach most common programming languages; C++, Java, Python and SQL to name a few.

With the new UK computer science curriculum replacing ICT our tutors are also able to teach the new GCSE and A Level computer science syllabae.

Computer Science Tutors

Our computer science tutors are mostly PhD students in Cambridge or professionals in London who are well-versed in this exciting field. They help complete beginners by demistifying the languages and concepts of coding. Additionally, our tutors can provide support for student studying university level courses in both abstract concepts and complex programming assignments.

Learning Microsoft Excel and Microsoft VBA

I am in my first year at university, studying mathematics at the University of Cambridge. In my time at Winchester College, I often helped others when they were struggling with their work for IGCSE or PreU maths and sciences, both my peers and boys in the younger years. I also spent time helping with science lessons in local primary schools. I enjoy helping others to understand difficult concepts in maths and science

I have been selected for the UK team for the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics, which takes place in India in December. I have been training for it over the past few months, and will continue to until December. I also reached final selection rounds for both the Chemistry and Biology Olympiad teams.

Over the summers of 2014 and '16, I designed and built this website, and have been webmaster since.
