About JB Tutoring in Austin, TX

Our Austin 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 private tutoring sessions take place in the students' homes, meeting the tutor at a local coffee shop or library works as well. Given the risks presented by COVID-19, online tutoring has become a popular option as well!

Most students have tutoring 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. ​

Austin Tutoring Service

Tutoring sessions are typically one-on-one. We recommend one-on-one tutoring sessions because this allows your students to receive focused assistance tailored to their unique needs and areas of difficulty. However, we do offer group tutoring sessions, and at a discounted rate! If you have a friend or neighbor with students in need of tutoring, and like to learn more about our group tutoring sessions, please email us at contact@jbtutoring.com

"I have a profound, fierce desire to make the world a better place. For years, I wrestled with identifying how best to go about accomplishing that ambitious goal. I knew I felt drawn to working with young people, and enjoyed tutoring students all throughout my college years. After receiving encouragement from my friends and family, I decided to take a leap of faith and create JB Tutoring. And WOW, I am so glad I did! I feel honored and privileged to work with so many wonderful families in the Austin area. To help students as they grow into themselves, and be able to support them in both their academic and personal journeys, has truly been the greatest gift of my life."
