We believe every child deserves equal access to a rigorous education regardless of their background, but the unfortunate truth is that there are many who are simply given fewer opportunities than others. We thus focus on reaching out to students of low socioeconomic status

This does not mean, however, that we discriminate in whom we teach. We aspire to provide each and every child what they need to reach their full potential—whether it is extra help in subjects they are struggling in, acceleration past their current curriculum, or even a mentor to help plan their academic future. 

If you’re interested in learning all about Robin’s Nest, here is an in-depth guide to help you understand who we are and what services we provide:


Head Tutors: Ruby Barenberg, Emily Forrest, and Helen Xie

Head tutors: Sidd Bhakta, Bilal Kharrat, and Razanne Shoukfeh

We also offer online services. These are opportunities for students outside of the Lubbock area or those who cannot make it to either library to get tutoring from Robin’s Nest. Sign up for online tutoring here.

We try to have one tutor for every one student. All our tutors are qualified and passionate about what we stand for which allows our program to be completely free of charge.
