Breakout Mentors is the personalized approach for kids learning to code. Our goal is to show just how exciting coding can be and provide your son or daughter the opportunity to take it as far as they want to go.
1-on-1 Mentoring and Tutoring
Students 8 to 15 years-old are paired 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.
Your son or daughter will be 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 excited about coding! Sessions are held in-person on the college campus or over video conference.
Private Coding Camps with Friends
During the summer we offer in-home camps for groups of friends interested in learning together. It is the ideal learning environment for kids with similar coding experience, which allows for a much deeper understanding than the typical drop-off summer camp. By the end of the camp your student will be able to bring their own ideas to life and create their own games.
Each camp is 3 hours a day, Monday through Friday for one week. Our most popular are Scratch programming for 4th and 5th graders and Java or Python for middle school students, or we can design a custom one for you!
