“I loved my experience with Jacob, who found creative ways to teach difficult math concepts, and offered excellent advice and help with writing sections. His super adaptable approach changed the game for me.”
Rachel, GRE Student
“Jacob is an incredible supportive SAT tutor. He is thoughtful, reliable, prepared, and connects well with kids. He has the student's best interests in mind, and uses his extensive knowledge about colleges and the application process to help students meet their goals. Each session with Jacob was tailored to the student's needs—lessons structured around the strengths and weaknesses he observed in homework and practice tests, and session priorities determined by the student's stress level and courseload. In the days leading up to the exam, he offered more helpful advice about how to physically prepare for the exam (diet, sleep, etc.). I highly recommend working with him!”
