About Jake

I am a current Lecturer of Academic English at DePaul University in Chicago, having spent the year prior teaching English as a Second Language at the University of Florida and the previous two years earning an M.A. in Spanish there, where I taught beginning and intermediate Spanish classes at the university. I spent the two preceding years teaching Analytical Thinking Skills in the Singapore school system and English as a Second Language in Taipei, Taiwan. I also have B.A.s in Spanish and Linguistics and Minors in French and TESL. I love the language learning process and, aside from Spanish (and English), I also speak French, Catalan, and Mandarin to varying degrees.

I have pretty extensive experience with teaching language, am educated in Linguistics, and have gone through the process of foreign language learning multiple times, all of which I believe have helped me become a great teacher. Given the opportunity, I would love to help you succeed in your language learning goals!
