In what subject areas do you offer tutoring?
Winn Tutoring provides tutoring for grades K – 12 in all levels of math, science, reading, writing, English, Spanish, and social studies, as well as services such as academic coaching, organization and study skills, homework help, essay writing, college application essays, and one-on-one SAT/ACT Prep. We also provide tutoring for some entry level college courses. Please refer to our "Services" page for a complete listing of subjects.
Where does the tutoring take place?
We offer tutoring in student's homes as well as online. If this is inconvenient, tutors can meet the student at a library, bookstore, or coffee shop. A parent or adult must be present during the in-home sessions.
What areas of Austin and Houston do you serve?
Winn Tutoring operates in the greater Austin area, as well as many outlying areas. We also serve central and southwest Houston. Many times, however, arrangements can be made to accommodate other areas. Please call or email the office to inquire.
How long does a session last and how frequent are the sessions?
You decide how often your student needs tutoring. Each session has a one hour minimum. Any time beyond the first hour is priced in quarter hour increments. The tutor may be scheduled for as long or as often as your student needs. Some students are tutored in multiple subjects several days per week, while others require help in a single subject one day per week. We do our best to accommodate last minute requests.
Do I need to sign a contract?
Absolutely not. Unlike many other tutoring services, Winn Tutoring does not require contracts or charge any sort of set-up fees. We believe in flexibility - the student schedules a session as often as he/she needs.
What is the cost of a tutoring session?
Our pricing is very reasonable. Each customer's rate is based on the driving distance for the tutor from the university. Please call or email the office for an exact price. The starting price for the Austin area is $44/hour. The starting price for the Houston area is $48/hour.
How do I pay for the session?
Sessions are purchased in advance and paid for online. As soon as you have been scheduled with a tutor, you will choose the number of sessions to purchase.
Are Winn Tutors certified teachers?
Winn Tutoring does have several certified teachers on staff, but most Winn Tutors are students themselves which enables them to provide the most up-to-date knowledge available. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for learning and know how to relate to today's students. All of our tutors undergo background checks, selective interviewing, and a careful screening process.
Will we have the same tutor every time?
We match our tutors and students very carefully and always strive for the best fit. If your student has worked well with a tutor and you have a regularly scheduled session, you can be assured the same tutor. If you request a tutor on an "as-needed" basis, then it's possible you may not have the same tutor each time.
What materials are utilized in the tutoring sessions?
At the session, the student needs to have textbooks, homework, worksheets, quizzes, and any other pertinent materials available, and come prepared with questions.
What if I need to cancel my session?
We require 24 hour notice of cancellation, otherwise the one hour pricing rate will apply. You may call the main Winn Tutoring phone number or call your tutor directly.
What if I am unsatisfied with my tutoring session?
We want each tutor to be a perfect fit for every student. We have many qualified tutors to choose from so there is no problem in switching tutors if the student would like to try someone else.
