Breakout Mentors offers the most hands-on way to learn coding fundamentals through advanced computer science for late elementary, middle, and high school students. Through consistent challenges your son or daughter will build independence and grit while having fun.
For nearly 15 years we provided exclusively one-on-one instruction. This is crucial for challenging the student at the perfect pace and making open-ended projects to keep them engaged. In this format our mentors can tailor to the individual learning style of each student and give them the space to think independently. The depth in computer science knowledge our students acquire over months of years is tough to replicate anywhere else and sticks long-term.
There is also a case to be made for breadth of learning. By gaining exposure to wide-ranging topics, students can better understand the different opportunities and applications available to them. Code is everywhere you look in today’s modern world, but it isn’t always obvious: some kids believe coding is just about making videos games!
The Breakout Mentors Small Group Workshops are a perfect solution.
- Held online over video conference.
- Led by one of our talented kids coding mentors. They are fun engineering students from top tier colleges.
- Limited group sizes so the mentor is able to individually help students with their code.
- Each workshop will have a different session lengths. Some will be split over multiple days.
