About Jane

I work in the Riverland Tutoring Center at the Austin East Campus, helping students with writing and reading support. I am also part of a wonderful Learning Specialist team called RiverGuide, a program created to support all students in historically challenging classes. The RiverGuides work with faculty and students, embedded in targeted classes and offering sessions outside of class to further support learning. Both of these roles allow me to work with students to help expand their learning opportunities, which I really enjoy.

More about Jane Bute

I am married to Mike, a diesel instructor, who loves to travel and find adventures as much as I do! We enjoy gardening, cooking and playing with our grandson. We also have an energetic pup named Ruby. When I am not busy running after kids and dogs, I help out my daughter at her graphic design studio, Sparkling Image. I love learning, reading, and exploring.
