About Jacob


Bio

My teaching philosophy has always been to meet students where they are at in their studies and break down troublesome concepts into fundamentals and relate them to the student's own goals and interests. That allows us to build a framework from which they can build a robust body of knowledge. As a tutor, it is my job to inspire your confidence in your abilities and give you the tools to succeed.

My teaching philosophy has always been to meet students where they are at in their studies and break down troublesome concepts into fundamentals and relate them to the student's own goals and interests. That allows us to build a framework from which they can build a robust body of knowledge. As a tutor, it is my job to inspire your confidence in your abilities and give you the tools to succeed. I tutored coursework in History, Finance, Accounting, Economics, and Math through Calculus I during my time in college, and it was so rewarding that I wanted to continue to share the gift of knowledge with as many people as I can.

I received a B.S. in Finance and a Minor in Economics from Michigan Technological University, which is an elite engineering university located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. My education there allowed me to gain a solid grounding in advanced statistics and quantitative finance, while also exposing me to hands-on portfolio management and high tech entrepreneurship through interfacing with engineers and programmers. I used my education to start a biotechnology company in computational chemistry with a number of other alumni, where I act as the CFO. I also used it as a platform to learn how complex economics systems work, and it gave me the tools to critically analyze the material conditions of people throughout history. I'm an avid reader and history buff, continuously learn about politics and philosophy, and I'm a studio musician and active music producer.

I hold myself to very high standards and will do the same for you. I seek feedback after my lessons, and if you're not completely satisfied with my work, I will not bill you for my time. Depending on the frequency, duration, and expectations of the tutoring, I will provide homework, skill assessments, and periodic progress reporting at your request. I offer a free 30-minute Skype or phone consultation to establish learning goals if necessary, as long as your payment information is on file with WyzAnt.

The Most Professional & Dedicated

Jacob is by far the best tutor I have ever worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable about a wide variety of finance, economics and accounting subjects. You would be lucky to have him on your side because he will go the extra mile for you. Jacob has the incredible ability to break a problem down and explain the solution in the most simplistic and easy to understand way. You can truly tell how genuine he is from the first interaction. I feel extremely fortunate to have found him on Wyzant. 5 Stars is not enough! A+++ #1

Dylan, 17 lessons with Jacob

knowledgeable on the subject. Even emailed me Excel help!

Managerial accounting. I spent my time mostly on Budgets. He did a great job and made multiple sheets of notes that he emailed to me. We even went through real scenarios and applied everything to me.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

CapSim Project; Strategic management. Started off horribly on this project and had to seek tutoring. So glad I found Jacob. Had a 360 degrees turnaround for the positive. My initial and one-time experience in seeking a tutor here for an accounting course sent me back working on my own, but Jacob has reinstated a great level of confidence worthy of referral. He teaches and you can't help but understand his simple and educative approach. Highly recommend!

Amazing tutor, super friendly.

Jacob was great! He's very knowledgeable, and is also really chill! He tailored his style to fit my needs, and was also able to move through material quickly when I was in a rush. He's just a great tutor all around and you'd be lucky to have him!
