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.

2pm – 4pm Joseph
5pm – 7pm Benjamin
Noon – 2pm Alex
5pm – 7pm Benjamin
Alex is a sophomore studying Computer Science and Physics and working at the MIT Media Lab when he can make the walk. In his free time, you’ll find him playing video games, reading through a book or two, or maybe grabbing some bubble tea. Alex can help with Algorithms, Theory of Computation, and Object-Oriented Design, or offer what he knows in Java, C#, Unity, and Web Development. He might even be of assistance in math/physics courses albeit to a lesser degree.
Dan is a third year majoring in computer science and math, who just finished a co-op at LibertyX doing data science and web development. He can help with Algorithms, Theory of Computation, and Logic and Computation, as well as most mathematics classes. Dan can also be a resource for general programming questions, including Java, Python, Haskell, and R. Outside of class, Dan enjoys reading, video games, and speed chess.
Joseph is a fourth year in the college pursuing a degree in computer science, with minors in math and linguistics. He’s worked as a co-op at Intuit and Hubspot, mostly doing full-stack web development, and most recently as an intern at Facebook. He’s happy to help with Programming Languages, Theory of Computation, Algorithms, Systems, or OOD. Joseph can also help with general questions; he’s worked extensively with Java and C++ but loves to tinker with Racket and Haskell and just about everything else.
Benjamin is a fourth-year Computer Science major with two co-op experiences as full stack web and mobile application developer. Benjamin is most comfortable tutoring Computer Systems, Object-Oriented Design, and Theory of Computation. Outside of class Benjamin enjoys reading, music, and game design. He is very familiar with the Unity game engine and can assist with game design/programming problems. He can also act as a resource for general software development and programming knowledge for Java, C#, Python, and SQL.

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 students taking a CCIS course, it provides computers, printers, tables for group work, and tutors for first-year courses.
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.
