Our tutors will read classical literature with you to enhance your reading abilities. Throughout the lessons, you will be able to grasp complicated literary concepts and dissect plots and themes. Through this, you will not only gain grammatical skills, but also think critically by considering themes and symbols to fully comprehend an author's intentions in formulating a text. Continuous exposure to high-level reading will strengthen your analytical skills in all facets of life, understand different cultural and historical backgrounds, and help you form your own ideologies.

Learn to Code

In an age of technology, there is a rapidly increasing demand for strong software developers as a profession. Furthermore, we have noticed that bright, young minds are starting to learn to code at an earlier age. We want to ensure that everyone can get the exposure to programming when they need it, so we have a set of programming courses curated to give you the knowledge and experience you need.

Getting Started with Scratch

Elementary school-aged students can become familiar with programming logic through the use of Scratch, a world-renowned project developed by the MIT Media Lab. In this course, students will learn visual-based programming to create interactive stories, games, and animations.

Introduction to Programming

Young adolescents can start off with this introductory class where they will learn the basics of programming. In this class, students will become comfortable with the programming language Python and cover topics such as loops, arrays, modules, and object-oriented programming (OOP).

At Acclaim, we believe that providing you with the proper learning tools is essential. As such, we have developed an online tool that allows you to collaborate with a private tutor in a live coding session, where you can make changes and run them in real-time.

Intermediate Programming

Younger students who successfully complete the Introduction to Programming course or high school students with a strong math background will find this level engaging. Intermediate Programming will cover all the basics of programming in Java, while introducing additional topics such as sorting / searching algorithms, recursion, and inheritance.

Additionally, a successful completion of this course will thoroughly prepare students for AP Computer Science.
