Individualized and Intuitive Academic Coaching, Tutoring, and Mentoring in Austin, TX


​Hi, I’m Erica, a certified academic coach, multi-subject tutor, and mentor based in the Onion Creek area of South Austin. Since 2012, my company Escalada Education Co. has been providing academic coaching, tutoring, and mentoring for students of all ages needing customized help with meeting their academic and personal goals. I meet with students and mentees in-person in their home or somewhere nearby and/or online via Skype or WizIQ.

My mission is for my students and mentees to have a safe place to express their concerns and frustrations about their studies and current circumstances, to have reduced anxiety and increased confidence concerning academics and life choices, and for them to walk away with procedures and plans to help them meet their goals with the least amount of headache.

I work with students who feel like their teacher moves too fast through the lessons or may not be able to answer their questions thoroughly, who are needing to catch up or get ahead, and those who are preparing for up coming classes or standardized tests. We work on mastering content as well as planning and organization. I also work with mentees who “feel” like something different needs to happen in their lives, but are not sure what that is, and help them extract their purpose through dialogue and getting to know who they are as a person. I am certified through the National Tutoring Association and am currently obtaining more certifications to improve my effectiveness as an academic coach, tutor, and mentor.

Discover Your Potential

The most important step in setting up a successful academic coaching, tutoring, and/or mentoring session is getting to know my student or mentee. This allows for me to step into the perspective of the person I am guiding and understand their learning styles and preferences, which in turn, makes helping them learn more efficient and fluid than teaching them my own prefered methods. From there, the student or mentee begins to better see themselves as a person capable of learning and tackling any subjects or circumstances that may arise.
