As a tutor for over six years in New York City, Jake graduated from New York University's Stern School of Business, with a double major in Management and Romance languages before he started tutoring full time. He has tutored students from middle school to college and is actively involved in the entire academic process from addressing specific issues in class, to test preparation, as well as organizational skills that help students save time and energy, improving their executive functioning. He has worked as a substitute teacher at a Manhattan private school and this has helped him to adapt to each student's needs in order to help them achieve their goals in both group and individual settings.

Jake tutors students in a variety of subjects at all grade levels from 6th to 12th, including: humanities, math (up to and including calculus), Spanish, and Biology. In Biology and AP Biology Jake works to improve his students' science practices to help them think like biologists so they can understand biological concepts. Jake is also a fluent speaker of Spanish and French. One of Jake's strongest areas is in Math, where he works to make students more confident in their algebra, geometry, statistics, and calculus work by breaking topics down into manageable pieces. As a business school graduate, he has a mind for numbers. In addition to these subject areas, he has also helped students prepare for standardized tests for high school and college admission while also working with students and parents on the college application process.

Several of Jake's students have gone on to some of the best universities in the country, including Georgetown and Harvard because of his focus on students' individual strengths, which allows him to create customized approaches that help students create the habits needed to be successful.
