Kids Scratch 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.

Scratch For Kids Learning to Code

Many of our students begin with Scratch drag-and-drop coding to learn the fundamentals. Across the Bay Area we are currently working with 28 kids in Scratch!

It is a visual learning environment that includes important concepts like loops, conditionals, and variables. Mentors gradually challenge the student through helping them make exciting projects. Kids love making their own versions of games, for example the classic game Space Invaders. Mentors encourage the students to add their own creative features, like speeding up the enemies after reaching 10 points.

As students progress, mentors are able to introduce more advanced concepts and encourage increasingly complex projects. Kids who work with Breakout Mentors over months and years will eventually move from Scratch to a language they type like Python or Java.
