AP Computer Science
Would you like your child get introduced to the Computer World, get the basic knowledge of coding and learn to write small programs in Python, Java or C++? Or does he or she needs some assistance in the AP Computer Science A test preparation? Anyway, you can find the right class for your student here, at the Languages and Math Learning Center!
These classes are conducted by highly professional and experienced teachers that have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the subject. Past accolades speak loudly to the quality of our teachers; in 2015, 2016 and 2017, our center won awards for being the Best Test Prep.
With small classes (not more than 6 kids in a group), teachers find an individualized approach to each student, so that every session is tailored to the individual needs of each group member.
These classes will help students be ready for the Computer Science A AP exam. Depending on the needs and preferences of the students, classes will incorporate exploring computing in context, learning to build upon existing code using appropriate programming language constructs, and developing problem-solving abilities; tasks will include finding alternative approaches for solving a problem, modifying existing code, and solving new problems. Lessons will review and solidify main concepts such as classes, inheritance, interfaces, and other object-oriented concepts pulled from the AP Computer Science A outline. Almost each lesson will include a mini quiz containing AP Computer Science test styled questions.
Preparation for AP Computer Science A
LMLC is excited to offer highly effective one-on-one and small group AP Computer Science A classes and recommends them to all high school students. These classes will help any students who are planning to take this class at school, need help through the course, or is planning to take the AP exam by themselves. Furthermore, these classes would be very helpful for any student who has a curiosity about computer science and wants to get a solid understanding of the topic. Conducted by trained professionals that believe in their students, this course will effectively help students build their confidence in tackling problems and preparing them for the exam. Every session is individualized and tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of the students and their preferences.
Introduction to Programming and Scratch
These classes will help students get a knack of computer science and are recommend to the middle school students (Grades: 6-8) who are planning to take take Computer Science as a class in their school curriculum, or just have curiosity about computer science and want to get a solid understanding of the topic.
Conducted by trained professionals that believe in their students, the set of twelve 1.5 hour long classes will make students understand the basics of computer and also the various technologies related to Computer Science. The students will also be given basic Programming and Problem-Solving knowledge. Depending on the needs and preferences of the student, classes will incorporate exploring computing in context, understanding the requirements of programming, and developing problem-solving abilities; tasks will include understanding the basic computer softwares like MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Students will also be understanding HTML and their basic tags. Students will be made familiar to Computer Science terminology like Internet, Software, Hardware, Coding, Programming Languages, Bugs, Debugging etc.
Introduce your child to the world of code with our fun and engaging intro to computer science classes for young learners. Students will learn the fundamentals of programming, understand core components of computer logic, and create their own game by the end of the course. Each class will break down specific elements of coding, with a majority of the time spent in labs where students will complete goal-oriented exercises using Scratch, an event-based programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab. Each exercise will target specific concepts, encouraging students to put the skills they learn into practice and experiment with new ideas—all in a constructive and encouraging classroom environment. In the words of Steve Jobs, “Everyone…should learn to program a computer, because it teaches you to think.” Not only is coding a skill applicable to a wide range of industries, it’s a skill that applies to life as a whole. It develops structured problem solving approaches, it teaches persistence, and it challenges the student to think about things from a new perspective. With this mentality in mind, our classes are taught by an enthusiastic instructor with classes appropriately sized for individualized attention during lab time.

OUR CUSTOMERS’ STORIES
My daughter attended Creative writing and Math Logic, and Ms.Kate and Mr.Andre are wonderful teachers. They keep it interesting all through the hour and also keep it creative. My 7 year will be going to 2nd grade this august and she learnt a lot with fun at the same time with focus.A class like environment although online where the kids are competing at the same time learning together. Would definitely going back for more classes. Highly recommend since the regular school will also be distance learning and this would help kid thorough the basics.
My girls 10 and 12 years old took an 8 session creative writing with Ms. Kate. The girls liked the teacher and the interactivity of the class even with it being online.
We were happy to find a center where children can learn so much in a friendly atmosphere. Teachers of Spanish and Russian are professionals and native speakers, what is important. They have many other classes. The owner Olga has many years of education kids , has passion and kindness, flexibility. We love LMLC and will recommend this Center to a friend!
Both of my kids are attending the LMLC school since September 2017. The owner Olga is extremely pleasant to deal with – she is very accommodating and flexible.
The additional kudos goes to my daughter’s geometry teacher Fedor. It’s hard to make a teenager girl enthusiastic about math but he keeps her engaged, which helps enormously to maintain a solid A in 9th grade Geometry Honors class of her regular school. Thank you, Olga and Fedor for your help!
I am very satisfied and recommend LMLC to anyone who wants to give their kids a high quality extra curriculum.
