Introduction: Thanks for checking out my profile! I began tutoring full-time in 2019 after graduating from Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL). As a 26 year old with 4 years of experience tutoring, I can relate to my students on a personal basis and explain material in a way that is practical and simple to follow. I teach many different subjects, including but not limited to Spanish, SAT prep and math through precalculus. My favorite subject to teach is Spanish, because I began learning it in high school and ended up fluent after living for a year abroad in Madrid, Spain! I like to tell my students this because it shows how school can lead to exciting paths in the future. I look forward to working with your student to help achieve his or her full academic potential!

If you are in search of a great tutor, then look no further. Everything you look for in a quality tutor can be found in Jake. He is professional, accommodating, charismatic, compassionate, funny, punctual, knowledgeable, patient, and much more. I have struggled with math since I was a child due to ADHD, and it has continued well into my twenties. I have had countless teachers and instructors attempt to help me conquer math but to no avail. That was until I met Jake. Before Jake was my instructor, I was lucky to complete basic multiplication and division, but within a few short weeks I was doing linear algebra with his guidance. Not only was he the first one to show me how to solve these problems, but he would provide helpful tools and techniques for different scenarios. If at any time I struggled, he would lift me up and help me approach the problem from different angle(s) until I finally understood the material. He has such insightful lessons while simultaneously staying lighthearted. His intuition and empathy are highlighted throughout his sessions as he knows just the right thing to say at just the right time. It is awe-inspiring how genuine Jake is and his desire to help others with their success is remarkable. He is willing to do whatever it takes to defeat any challenge that is thrown someone’s way. If you have any doubts about whether or not Jake is the right person, let those worries cease and desist because he is simply the best and cannot be beaten. If I struggle with a subject, Jake is who I will always ask for help. Thanks for everything, Jake! You’re awesome!!!!

My son had a low D in his Spanish 2 class when he started working with Jake. He has trended up in grades since then and is now getting As and Bs in his spanish quizzes. He enjoys working with Jake and I appreciate his follow up on their sessions. Highly recommend!!

Jake has made such a difference in my son’s Spanish grades! We’ve gone from barely passing to A’s and B’s. Jake is super professional while maintaining a great report with his students. I’m so thankful we found such a great tutor!

Jake has been amazing with our son’s math tutoring. He is patient, and takes time to walk through the concepts at a good pace. Even through zoom they have been able to efficiently cover all of the topics my son needs help with.

Jake has been incredibly helpful getting my son through the confusing and harder aspects of his math course. Tutoring at Mathnasium in Las Vegas was nothing compared to Jake’s one on one with my son. I highly recommend him, and we look forward to continuing tutoring with him. Thanks Jake!
