The College Board offers 2 different AP Computer Science Courses:
- AP Computer Science A
- AP Computer Science Principles
This page is about tutoring for AP Computer Science Principles. I also offer tutoring for AP Computer Science A.
About Brandon Horn
- Experienced AP CS teacher; Google CAPE instructor
- Proven success on the AP Exam
Experience working with girls in AP Computer Science
I hold a B.S. in Computer Science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I’m a New Jersey certified teacher at Mountain Lakes High School.
I was a 2016 AP Standards Setting Committee Member. The Standards Setting Committee recommends cut scores for each of the 1-5 AP Exam scores.
When I worked at West Windsor Plainsboro High School South, teams from my classes won the 2007 and 2010 NJIT High School Programming Contests. My students write Java games and mobile phone games as well as other unique and challenging projects using Eclipse, BlueJ, and the command line.
In 2011 & 2012, I was selected as an instructor for Google’s CAPE Program. Together with other top CS educators from around the country, I taught animation, robotics, mobile programming, and other skills to aspiring high school freshmen. Local TV station NY1 featured the New York City CAPE Site at which I taught.
My services offer substantial advantages over tutoring by college students, professors, programmers, and online tutoring conglomerates. I tutor only one subject for which I am extensively qualified. I work with only one student at a time unless a group session has been arranged. My students complete all assignments themselves and develop an understanding of the underlying concepts.

I’m available as an online AP Computer Science tutor anywhere in the world. I’ve worked with students in nearby locations including Princeton, West Windsor, Plainsboro and South Brunswick New Jersey. I’m also comfortable working with students from different time zones including Texas, California, London, Germany and Singapore.
I do not privately tutor my own students. Students currently enrolled in my classes who are seeking help should schedule time with me during their study hall periods, during lunch or in the morning.
