About Jacob


Bio

Teaching is about more than answers. Answers can be found in a book or online. You don't need me for answers. There is often a difficult way to learn and an easy way to learn, and I am primarily motivated to find new, interesting, and easy ways for my students to learn.

Teaching is about more than answers. Answers can be found in a book or online. You don't need me for answers. There is often a difficult way to learn and an easy way to learn, and I am primarily motivated to find new, interesting, and easy ways for my students to learn.

My day job is for a Big 4 Accounting Firm in International Tax. I use my knowledge of business, law, and the internal revenue code to suggest ways my clients can improve cross-border mergers or any cross-border intercompany transactions. This exposes me to a wide skill set including basic accounting, corporate law, general principles of federal income tax, corporate tax, partnership tax, international tax, and much more.

I'm especially proud of my ability to teach Constitutional Law. This course has always fascinated me because it studies the source and limits of the government's power. Many students find the fuzzy lines and lengthy opinions to be arduous, but I find that most people are very interested in the subject once the ideas are discussed in an engaging way.

In another life, I was a certified High School Physics teacher. I'm sure my love for teaching and people will be apparent if we schedule a lesson!

I am especially proud of my ability to teach Constitutional Law and Tax Law. Constitutional Law should be a fun class where we discuss the relationship between the government and the people -- but so frequently it seems to become vague and arbitrary. My approach is to discuss the outline (as it is likely to appear on the bar exam) and talk about how the outline would be applied in real-world situations. Partnership tax especially can be challenging to law students - but with practical examples the subject becomes much easier for students to get a handle on. I'm also happy to help with all other income tax law subjects.

Made my son very comfortable and understood immediately what needed to be worked on. Communication was excellent, as well. Will definitely book with him again! Thanks, Jacob!

Extremely knowledgeable and fun to work with

I have only had one session so far, but I am so excited for the next. Jacob taught me 5 weeks of Constitutional Law in an hour and in a way that was easy to grasp. He is eloquent and makes the material interesting. Highly recommend for help with law school courses.
