Every year thousands of kids enroll in coding summer camps. They can be a fun way to provide a first taste of programming.
But there are also over 20 other kids in the room and there is very little customization. Everyone does the same thing and often code is just copied from an example.
Breakout Mentors provides the personalized approach for kids learning to code. Over the summer we offer small private classes so a group of friends can learn together.
The curriculum is fit to the exact experience and interests of the students. It’s not one-size-fits-all.
The maximum number of students is 4 so that we can pay individual attention to each student. Not just providing an answer and hurrying on to the next issue.
Summer 2016 in Berkeley, Piedmont, Oakland, Alameda, and San Francisco
Morgan is our UC Berkeley mentor who will be running the personalized classes this summer. She is a senior studying Computer Science and Cognitive Science (complete online profile coming soon).
If you live within 10 miles of Berkeley, Morgan will be able to travel to your home to run the private class.
Summer 2016 in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Los Altos, and Mountain View
Megan is our Stanford mentor who will be running the classes down the peninsula this summer. She is a sophomore at Stanford studying Computer Science (complete online profile coming soon).
If you live within 10 miles of Stanford, Megan will be able to travel to your home to run the private class.
How it Works
The classes are one week of 3 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Either 9-noon or 1-4 are preferred.
Please contact us to discuss your student’s age and programming experience. We will customize the private class to be the perfect fit.
Then you can contact up to 3 friends who have similar interests and experience to join your group.
Also contact us to discuss which weeks are available in each location. Our schedule is just starting to fill up, but act soon!
