About Jacob

¡Hola! I am a focused, enthusiastic Harvard graduate who has been studying, researching, and teaching Spanish for years. The following is a list of my Spanish-related qualifications:

-Two-year tutor of Intermediate Spanish to fellow Harvard students through the Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel (if you are interested in speaking to a former student of mine, just let me know and I can put you in touch)
-Winner of the 2012 Sales Prize at Harvard University, awarded to the "best scholar in Spanish composition" at Harvard each year
-Winner of the Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy Student Essay Prize, following Spanish-language research in Havana, Cuba
-Recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship on Cuban migration, in which I conducted over 60 interviews in Spanish with Cuban migrants
-Doubled majored in Social Studies and Spanish at Harvard, graduating magna cum laude

I hold myself and my students to a high standard. Learning Spanish is an incredibly rewarding experience, besides representing a highly valuable, marketable skill - but it takes hard work to master. I expect my students to come prepared for each lesson, and they should expect the same from me.

As I am currently enrolled in NYU Law School, I am able to tutor students in quiet study spaces on the NYU campus. I am also flexible in arranging a separate location to meet. With scheduling I will do my best to be flexible to your needs. Generally I prefer to tutor in the afternoons or evenings.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon and helping you to achieve success in learning this beautiful language!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Tutor seemed excellent — It was my daughter and not I who actually had the tutorial with him. From my interaction with him he was excellent; responsive, communicative, punctual, organized, etc. My daughter found Jacob very helpful with the more complicated verb conjugations that she had been struggling with in class. Thus, we found him very good overall. ...
