Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
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 25 year old and recent college grad, 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!

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!

Jake is a friendly , smart tutor and helped my son with his Spanish class. He is proficient in his subject and very flexible in accommodating our request with sessions late in the evenings and weekends. He responds to our texts quickly and make sure to work within our timelines. I will highly recommend Jake for Spanish.

Jake has been invaluable for my daughter's confidence with math. Since working with him, her math grades have significantly improved and she is eager to do well! The extra bonus is that, once she started feeling better about math, her motivation for her other subjects has also significantly improved. She looks forward to meeting with Jake and thoroughly enjoys how he engages with her. I wish we had found him sooner. He is wonderful! Thank you Jake!

Jake is a great tutor. We use him for both of our children in high school geometry and algebra. The kids like him because of how he is able to adapt to what each person needs, he’s easy to understand, and it shows in their overall grade which have improved by one grade level or more. I would definitely recommend using Jake as your tutor.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $60 per hour and accept payment either in advance or the day of the scheduled session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually schedule a phone call or Zoom chat with new customers prior to our first session. This allows me to get to know the client on a personal basis and to understand their specific goals and needs in tutoring. From there, we schedule our first session, which will be planned based on the subject matter and student’s goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) in May of 2019 as a business major and a Spanish minor. In high school, I took as many AP and Honors classes as possible. My academic background gives me the experience and skills necessary to help students excel at all different levels of learning. The combination of my Spanish minor and year spent living in Spain allows me to teach both written and conversational Spanish.
