The Liberal Arts and Science Academy (LASA) Learning Center provides subject-specific tutoring free of charge to any LASA student in need of support. Although LASA students are among the most talented, intelligent and motivated students in Austin ISD, not every student is uniformly prepared to succeed in every subject. Funded by PFLASA, the Learning Center provides an additional source of support tuned specifically to the needs of LASA students.
Launched in fall 2018, the Learning Center currently provides assistance with Biology, Chemistry and Physics, three afternoons a week in the school library. With additional funding from LASA Foundation supporters, the Learning Center will expand to provide tutoring in additional subjects and on additional days.
The LASA Foundation employs experienced tutors who demonstrate both subject matter mastery and a desire to help students improve their understanding of both the course materials and how to manage the work. Tutors are paid at competitive rates. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
