About our Austin Tutoring service

Tutoring sessions are 1, 1.5, or 2 hours in length and they generally take place in students’ homes on the day/time of their choice. Although most tutoring sessions take place in the student’s home, meeting the tutor at a local coffee shop or library works as well.  

Most students have sessions 1-3 times per week for the duration of the semester. After students select the day(s) and time(s) that work best for them, we help select a tutor that matches their needs and schedule. ​

Sessions are typically one-on-one. We recommend one-on-one sessions because this allows your students to receive focused assistance tailored to their unique needs and areas of difficulty. If, for whatever reason, you or your students do not want to do one-on-one sessions, students may have a buddy join in on the session. Please let us know beforehand if you want to have another student join for your student’s session. The cost will change.

Why JB Tutoring?​

JB Tutoring is the best choice for your student because we genuinely strive to give you the lowest possible rates on the market.  We also strive to make tutoring sessions as convenient as possible for you by bringing them directly to your home.


But, perhaps most importantly, we at JB Tutoring stand apart from other organizations in that we truly care about your students and their lives beyond the classroom. We recognize that there is so much more to life than school, and we truly enjoy hearing about the outcomes of your students' sports games, choir performances, vacations, friendships, personal struggles, and more. We understand the value and opportunity we have in one-on-one interactions with youth and we truly do strive to make the most of these moments. 

The bottom line is that we hope that our time with your students will not only help them better understand what it takes to be successful in the classroom, but also in their everyday lives as well. 

Meet The Founder

Jaclyn Barber is the proud owner and founder of JB Tutoring. Jaclyn grew up in Austin, TX and has 7 years of private tutoring experience at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels. Jaclyn's passion for and commitment to education started in her undergraduate studies at Texas Christian University (TCU). 


"Sometimes students find themselves in need of tutoring due to a learning difference, poor organizational skills, lack of confidence, challenging home dynamic, or dissonance with a certain teacher’s teaching style. No matter what the reason may be, I believe that these students need focused, one-on-one assistance. I am passionate about helping students improve their academic performance and master the skills they need in order to gain acceptance into an outstanding university.  I have personally experienced the transformative power of college education and I am determined to do whatever it takes to ensure that other students gain the opportunity to receive that experience as well."


Jaclyn Barber, Founder and Owner of JB Tutoring 

Jaclyn and her team of professional tutors strive to motivate each of their students to achieve academic excellence, build strong critical thinking skills, grow in self-confidence, and cultivate a love for learning. 


JB Tutoring strives to deliver personalized 1-on-1 service, prompt communication, and affordable rates. Our tutors possess or are currently pursuing bachelors degrees in Mathematics, Chemistry, Government, English, and other valuable subjects. Contact us today to set up your first tutoring session with one of our experienced Austin tutors!
