Escalada Education Co.
Individualized and Intuitive Academic Coaching, Tutoring, and Mentoring in Austin, TX
Hi, I’m Erica, a certified academic and life purpose 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 who need customized help with reaching their academic and personal goals. I meet with students and mentees in-person in their home or area 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 well with students who feel like their teacher moves too fast through the lessons and need to know “how?” and “why?” we do things a certain way, who are needing to catch up or get ahead in or prepare for classes, and those who are preparing for standardized tests. We work on mastering content as well as planning, organization, and problem solving strategies. I also work with those who feel like something different needs to happen in their lives and help them extract their purpose through dialogue centered around self-discovery. I am certified through the National Tutoring Association and and Transformation Services and am continuing my education as an academic and life coach, tutor, and mentor.
Discover Your Potential
The most important step in setting up a successful coaching, tutoring, and/or mentoring session is getting to know my student or mentee. As a highly sensitive person (HSP), it is natural for me to tell how people are feeling and adapt my approach to mesh well with their personality. I can easily step into the perspective of the person I am guiding and understand their learning styles and preferences; this makes helping them learn more efficient and fluid than teaching them my own prefered methods. With a little guidance and some time for introspection, the student or mentee begins to better see themselves as a person capable of learning and tackling any subjects or circumstances that may arise.
Areas of Study
I tutor various subjects ranging from math, science, writing, languages, and even athletics and music. See if my list includes what you are looking for. If you don’t see your topic, let me know; if I can’t do it, I may know someone who can.
Many parents and students find that working with me is a fun, easy, and enjoyable experience. My teaching style makes my students feel at ease. Together, we take the drudgery out of school work and make it pleasant for all of us.
