13 Year-Old After-School Coding Tutors & Classes

Kids learning to code need a personalized approach to be challenged at the right level and keep learning year-round. They don’t need another one-size-fits-all after-school class!

Breakout Mentors pairs each student with a one-on-one mentor who guides them through creative projects during weekly 90 minute sessions. It goes beyond tutoring – the mentor constantly adjusts the difficulty and introduces new concepts as the student is ready. Students are proud of their personalized games and itching to keep learning.

Each child is carefully matched with a Computer Science student at Stanford, UC Berkeley, or Santa Clara University by personality and interests to ensure the right mentor fit. Kids build a rapport by meeting the same mentor each week, someone who is equally as exciting about coding!

Beginner Kids After-School Coding

The intro to coding is a pivotal point for kids – beginner students will quickly decide if they are interested in continuing. They need to be challenged at the perfect level, with the support necessary to overcome challenges. They require structure to learn the fundamentals, but enough flexibility to bring their own creative ideas to life.

Most our 13 year-old beginners jump straight into a programming language they type, like Java or Python. We begin with a fun series of small projects over the first 2-4 months to establish coding fundamentals. Students quickly progress to making games like Pong, Breakout, and Space Invaders with their own creative features.
