About Jake

I volunteered in a Big Brother program for four years, in which I utilized patience and diligence to guide a youth. I also have been a private tutor over the last few years. It is a great passion of mine to help students with any difficulties that they may have. I had a 3.79 GPA at Wesleyan University, one of the top universities in the country. I graduated with honors as an English major. As a result, I am extremely qualified to tutor the subject matter at hand.

I specialize in teaching English Literature, with a focus on both reading and writing. Although my teaching style is largely structured, I attempt to encourage the student to feel comfortable in explaining any difficulties that he or she may have with the subject matter. I will ensure that the student actively learns the material, rather than simply memorizing facts or information. By teaching in this way, it will help the student to understand other subjects better as well.

I can work around your schedule most of the time, and I am very flexible right now.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping in any way that I can.
