Caroline ...best decision I've ever made and I learned so much, about myself and about teaching. It was also exciting to travel and see the world. Since I've returned, I have been teaching and tutoring in the Austin area. While I have tutored a wide range of subjects including English, Chemistry, Physics, Social Studies, French, Arabic and ESL, my favorite subject to teach is Math. I have loved math since I was a student myself and...

John I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in 2008, the oldest English speaking acting conservatory in the world. In spite of my English background, I do a lot of math and physics tutoring. I'm a huge Red Sox fan and love watching detective shows when I have free time.... Positivity. Always. I believe that if a student is given positive tools and is allowed to understand the material rather than be lectured at, they're more likely to do well in the future.

Samantha Although I spend my days teaching in a classroom, I love moonlighting at a tutor because of the individualized attention that my students receive. I bring several years of classroom experience to the table, as well as a teaching credential from the University of Oxford and a BA from Northwestern University. While my classroom experience is in English/reading and history, my tutoring experience has been in everything from math to foreign languages.

I support my physical health by practicing yoga, camping, and experimenting in the kitchen with healthy,...
Simone I hope to help students find success by becoming more confident and independent thinkers.
Meagan I'm recently graduated with a bachelor's degree from the English Department at UT Austin. For me, academia has been hugely satisfying; it's an ever-evolving challenge that rewards hard work, curiosity, and ambition. My goal in tutoring is to help students gain the confidence to explore their own academic interests, present and future.
