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. If cost is a concern, contact our owner Jaclyn Barber to chat about your situation. You can also consider opting for our Group Tutoring sessions (which have a discounted rate)! If you have 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 call or email us.

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 Government, Finance, English, Engineering, Education, and other valuable subjects.

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 recognize that there is so much more to life than school, and we truly value hearing about your students' sports games, fine art performances, vacations, friendships, personal struggles...all of it. Mentorship is at the core of what we do and what we strive to provide to our students. Our local tutors are passionate about not only helping students improve their grades, but boosting their overall sense of confidence and self-sufficiency as well.


In short, we understand the value and opportunity we have in our one-on-one interactions with youth, and we truly do strive to make the most of these moments. 


Our professional tutors can offer your students advice and coaching on study skills and organizational habits that can equip them for success in the classroom and beyond.

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 in their everyday lives as well. 

Meet The Founder

Jaclyn Barber is the proud owner and founder of JB Tutoring. She has nearly 10 years of private tutoring experience, and has assisted elementary school students, middle school students, high school students, and college students in a wide variety of subjects including Algebra, Geometry, Essay Writing, Spanish, SAT prep, ACT prep, college application support, and more!

Jaclyn grew up in Austin, Texas. After enduring a couple traumatic events during her middle school and high school years, Jaclyn felt compelled by a profound and fierce desire to make the world a better place. For years, she wrestled with identifying how best to go about accomplishing that ambitious goal, but she knew working with youth held a place in that vision.

She attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas and graduated with bachelor’s degrees in Religion and Philosophy. Although she planned to attend graduate school and pursue a career as a holistic counselor or college professor, she knew she had to find a way to pay the bills and fund her graduate education in the meantime. Jaclyn had always excelled academically, and had enjoyed tutoring K-12 students throughout her college years. So, after doing some soul-searching and receiving encouragement from friends and family, she decided to create JB Tutoring. Little did she know at the time, but in this venture, she had found her niche, her life’s calling.

Since founding JB Tutoring in 2018, Jaclyn and her team of tutors have served hundreds of families throughout the Austin area and have earned nothing but five-star reviews online.
