The personalized approach for kids learning to code
Each student is carefully matched with an exciting mentor who will customize the project-based learning. Our curriculum, constantly improved since 2011, is the perfect blend of structure and open-ended projects for independence and grit.
Hold a 90 minute session with the same mentor each week, fit conveniently into your schedule. Students keep advancing year-round at the perfect pace and are proud of the fun games and projects they create. Breakout Mentors works with students in Python, Java, Scratch, web development, and more. Advanced high school students can apply to our USACO Competition Programming Academy or Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Academy.
The secret to our success is our team of 50+ talented mentors. They are fun engineering students from Stanford University and UC Berkeley, as well as advanced specialists from other schools. We pair each child with the perfect mentor based on 17 factors!
Breakout Mentors was exactly what we were looking for when our 11 year old son asked to learn programming. He connected quickly with his mentor, who has taught him things beyond our knowledge. After his last session, he tried to explain to me some aspect of the programming he just learned and then said 'I feel so proud of myself.' We are proud of him too and thankful for Breakout Mentors.

Breakout Mentors did a wonderful job matching my daughter with a mentor - she is perfect! My daughter told me that she learned more from one session than her last 3 summer camps combined. She was so excited! Thank you - this is exactly what we were looking for! Mother of 12 year old girl in Danville
We just passed our second anniversary with Breakout Mentors. Our 12-year-old son has had two mentors and they've both been terrific: enthusiastic, knowledgeable, professional, and patient. They've been great about building a curriculum on the fly around his interests and keeping him engaged and learning. Highly recommended. Father of 7th grade boy in Palo Alto
