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, if cost is a concern, contact our owner Jaclyn Barber to chat about your situation. Or, consider opting for our Group Tutoring sessions at a discounted rate! If you know a friend or neighbor who has a student in need of tutoring in the same subject, and want to learn more about our Group Tutoring sessions, please email us at contact@jbtutoring.com

Why JB Tutoring is the best Tutoring Service in Austin

JB Tutoring is the best tutoring service in Austin because we strive to give you the best possible tutoring experience at the lowest possible rates in the market.  We also strive to make tutoring sessions as convenient as possible for you by bringing them directly to your home, AND on the day and time of your choice.


But, perhaps most importantly, we at JB Tutoring stand apart from other Austin tutoring services in that we are not interested in simply helping your student earn a 'good' grade. We do what we do because we truly care about your students' lives beyond the classroom. Mentorship is at the core of what we do and what we strive to provide to our students. Our local tutors want to help students not only improve their grades and academic performance, but boost their overall sense of confidence and self-sufficiency as well. Our professional tutors can offer advice and coaching on study skills and organizational habits that can equip students for success in the classroom and beyond. In short, we recognize that there is so much more to life than school, and we truly enjoy hearing about the outcomes of students' sports games, choir performances, vacations, friendships, personal struggles, etc. 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 this: 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.

"For years, I have felt 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 youth, and that I had enjoyed tutoring K-12 students throughout my college years. After receiving encouragement from 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 special tutors and families in the Austin area. To help tutors and students grow into themselves, and be able to support each of them in both their academic and personal journeys, has truly been the greatest gift of my life so far."
