Charles and I formed the Learning and Tutoring Center of East Austin (LTCEA) because we wanted to share some of our resources to give back to our community. When Charles was constructing the building that houses the center, we were still tossing around ideas of what to do with the building once it was finished. One thing we knew for sure was that we wanted to benefit our community in some way. We could have opened a "for profit" business, but this would not satisfy our intentions of giving back. Our experience with tutoring children since 2009 in reading, math and writing has motivated us to improve on our services. We appreciate the difference we're making in our East Austin community.
