It is hard to believe summer is almost here. Are you planning those vacations that weren’t possible the past two years due to COVID?
Breakout Mentors offers highly personalized 1-on-1 coding, meaning we can adjust not just to each student’s skill level and interest, but also their schedule. Our Deep Dive options can be fit around your travel plans, camps, and other commitments (read about how it works here).
This year we have even more capacity to work with advanced high school students in Machine Learning and USACO Competitive Programming. Let’s meet the talented mentors who will be working 1-on-1 with students this summer!
Machine Learning Specialists
Calvin Hansen – Stanford University
Calvin is entering his Master’s year at Stanford, studying Chemistry and Computer Science. He’ll also be applying to medical school soon and is excited for a career at the cutting edge of medical research. Last summer several of the Breakout Mentors Machine Learning students were interested in medicine and created apps like automated pneumonia detection from chest x-ray images.
Jainish Chauhan – University of California San Diego
Jainish is entering his second year of the UCSD Master’s program in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has an impressive Machine Learning background including projects and internships in Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision. Everything from generating new image backgrounds with realistic shadows to detecting potential depression in tweets.
If you want to learn more about the Machine Learning focus, if it is right for your son or daugther, and to learn what previous students have accomplished, join our webinar on April 20.
USACO Competitive Programming Specialists
Brian Ton – University of California San Diego
Brian is entering his sophomore year at UCSD studying Mathematics and Computer Science. He started competitive programming as a freshman in high school and reached USACO Gold his junior year. Brian loved learning the data structures and algorithms, with the fun challenge to try to make his programs more efficient. His favorite topic is Graph Theory and Brian believes USACO was crucial for developing the thinking skills he relies on in college.
Arvin Ding – University of California Los Angeles
Arvin participated in MathCounts in middle school, where he discovered he loved math and its exploration of the unknown. In 8th grade he started to code in Scratch, and just like many Breakout Mentors students, he enjoyed the combination of the logical rigor with freedom to create anything. In high school he reached USACO Platinum and now is on the UCLA ICPC Team regularly participating in Codeforces, Hackercup, Codejam, and other contests.
