 About JB Tutoring in Austin, TX

Our Austin tutoring sessions are 1, 1.5, or 2 hours in length, and they generally take place on the day/time of your choice. Our in-person sessions can take place at a local coffee shop or library works, or even at students' homes. 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 letting you choose the day, time, and place! 


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 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, Writing, Spanish, SAT prep, ACT prep, College Applications, and more!

Jaclyn grew up in Austin and graduated with bachelor’s degrees in Religion and Philosophy from Texas Christian University. Although Jaclyn had initially planned to pursue a career as a holistic counselor or college professor, she found herself doing a lot of private tutoring post- graduation. Over time, Jaclyn learned that not only was she extremely skilled in this line of work, but that there was a real need for it in her local community. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 made it doubly so. 

Since founding JB Tutoring in 2018, Jaclyn and her team of tutors have served over 700 families and earned nothing but five-star reviews on Google.

Jaclyn and her team assist students in all K-12th subjects, SAT/ACT Prep, college application essays, and more. The team is full of truly brilliant, dependable, young professionals who have a penchant for mentorship and making education more approachable and engaging to younger students.


Jaclyn and her team strive to motivate their students to pursue academic excellence, develop strong critical thinking skills, build self-confidence, and cultivate a love for learning.

In her free time, Jaclyn enjoys travelling, being active, spending time with her friends and family, attending live music events, and exploring local eateries!
