My experience of Jake’s teaching skills is based on his time as teaching assistant in Austria. He taught my class for one hour per week for a year.
I always looked forward to his lessons, because they were interesting, well-structured and never boring. Jake’s teaching methods are quite flexible so he was able to adapt to every student as individually as possible without neglecting the others. The covered topics were informative, varying and had a personal touch. He constantly managed to engage us in discussions, even though we were a lazy bunch and a lot of others had failed before. I, personally, learned a lot more than just vocabs and grammar.
It was really great having him as a teacher and I would have loved to have him for a longer time.
