8 Year-Old Python Coding Tutors & Classes

There are plenty of options for kids to code, Breakout Mentors is the most personalized and designed for long-term growth. I’m glad you found us!

Many skills are necessary to code effectively – everything from planning ahead to troubleshooting when things go wrong. Coding isn’t just knowing individual concepts, it’s putting them together to achieve a result. This is very difficult for adults – kids require 1-on-1 attention to advance and continue to have fun.

Breakout Mentors is centered around our talented mentors – Computer Science students at Stanford and UC Berkeley (also USF and SCU upon request). Each kid is paired with an exciting mentor for weekly 90 minute sessions – whether in person at the college, over video conference, or even in-home. They build a rapport together over months or years. The mentor provides the right balance of structured curriculum and encouragement of student creativity through fun projects.

Python For Kids Learning to Code

Many of our 8 year-old students use Python to learn programming fundamentals. Across the Bay Area we are currently working with 31 kids in Python.

It is an excellent language for learning to problem-solve like a computer scientist and to become comfortable with concepts like loops, conditionals, and functions. Mentors gradually challenge the students and introduce graphics to make exciting projects. Kids love making their own versions of games, including the classic Atari game Breakout. Mentors encourage the students to add their own creative features, like after hitting the ball five times the paddle shrinks.

As students progress, mentors are able to introduce more advanced concepts and encourage increasingly complex projects. 8 Year-Olds who work with Breakout Mentors over months and years will eventually move to advanced Computer Science apps and projects.
