Whether you’ve been writing code since you were 10 or are just now learning the fundamentals, you may need some extra help along the way. That’s why CCIS provides student resources that cover everything from improving grades and your health to connecting with peers and printers.
Tutoring services are available to all students taking computer and information science courses. Tutors are current CCIS students who have successfully completed CS courses, carefully selected by our faculty and trained to offer support and guidance as you work on homework or study. Tutoring is first come, first served. Please bring your laptop.

Duncan is a fourth-year Computer Science major with two co-op experiences at financial sector companies, where he used C# for web design and QA/development. Duncan is most comfortable tutoring for Object-Oriented Design, and can also assist in Computer Systems as well as Networks and Distributed Systems. Duncan can be a resource for Macro/Microeconomics, but to a lesser extent than a dedicated economics tutor.
Kaila is a junior pursuing a degree in Computer Science with minors in Math and Linguistics, and she is currently on co-op as a software engineer at InsightSquared. Her previous co-ops involved natural language processing at Basis Technology, and full-stack web development at Dell. She is more than happy to act as a resource for Logic and Computation, Object-Oriented Design, Algorithms, and Programming Languages, and she can also provide assistance with math courses and general programming knowledge for Java and Python. Additionally, Kaila spent the Fall 2014 semester studying at the University of Edinburgh and would love to share her experiences with those interested in going abroad. Feel free to drop by!
Liam is a senior pursuing a degree in Computer Science and Game Design, fresh off a co-op with Cult Quiet as a full-time programmer. He spends his spare time reading, making and playing video games, and watching anime. He can help with Computer Systems, Object-Oriented Design, Theory of Computation, and Programming Languages. Liam knows Java and C#, and is also a general resource for math (up to Calculus III) or graphics questions.
Vishant is a senior studying Computer Science and Mathematics, with an interest in theoretical computer science. His first co-op was as an application developer for Goldman Sachs, primarily focused on creating Java modules. This past spring, he worked as a data scientist at AstraZeneca, using machine learning techniques to analyze medical histories and clinical trial data. He can help with Algorithms, Theory of Computation, and Object-Oriented Design, as well as any general programming or math questions. In his free time, Vishant enjoys music, video games, and table tennis.
Jeff is a senior studying toward a combined degree in Computer Science and Physics. He has completed three co-ops in software engineering positions at Basis Technologies, Charles River Analytics, and Lockheed Martin. He has accepted a full-time position at BAE Systems for their Engineering Leadership Development Program. Outside of class, Jeff enjoys reading, tinkering with electronics, and playing ice hockey. He can help with Software Development, Object-Oriented Design, Algorithms and Data, Computer Systems, and Networks and Distributed Systems. Additionally, he can be a resource for math (up to Calculus III), Differential Equations, and physics courses.

The Math Tutoring Center – 540 B Nightingale Hall, 617.373.2438
Math tutoring on an individual basis is provided in algebra, pre-calculus, or calculus. Schedule a half-hour or hour-long appointment with the tutor of your choice on myNEU. This is a free service for Northeastern students.
CCIS computer labs
CCIS has multiple computer labs in West Village H (WVH). The main student lab is located in 102 WVH. Open to all CCIS students, it provides computers, printers, tables for group work, and tutors for first-year courses, including CS2500, 2510, 1800, and 2800.
Other labs are located on the second floor of WVH. These rooms are reserved for labs accompanying CS classes. They provide an opportunity to work with your peers on lab assignments and homework.
DRC serves Northeastern students who have documented disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADAAA) of 2008. We strive to provide exemplary service, education, and resources in the work that we do.
We Care provides guidance and support to aid students during times of crisis. Typically, students first work with their assigned academic advisor to determine if access to We Care is appropriate. Students can contact We Care directly during emergencies, or if they find themselves in crisis after academic hours.
