Information about Jakob

I am available for shorter term tuition over Christmas and Easter while I am back from University. This can be very useful for just a couple sessions to go over some key areas or for a more intensive series of sessions over the 5 weeks I am available to really help the student with their revision and boost their confidence!
I pride myself in my ability to help students find the way to revise that best suits them which will set them up well for the lead up to exams this summer.

I am young, enthusiastic and friendly with 1000+ hours of tutoring experience (Farlingaye High School and privately) to a wide range of ages and abilities.

Currently Studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge.
A-levels in Maths A*, Further Maths A, Chemistry A* and Physics A*.

I create a relaxed environment that gives my students confidence to ask questions freely. My tuition style is always adapted to each individual student and how they learn best.

Having completed A levels recently I am able to apply the learning methods I used in achieving my grades to my tutoring sessions.

I excel at helping students who are working towards their exams. I provide exam-board specific guidance, focusing on exam technique to achieve excellent results.

Availability: Available 5th December - 11th January

Experience: When we first met Jakob a year ago - my son was predicted a C (4/5) in his GCSE maths. After less than 12 months with Jakob he achieved an A*. More importantly, he has given Ben a real love of maths which he is now studying at A level. I have no idea how he manages to make maths so understandable and enjoyable but whatever he does it works and I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Jakob was always punctual and polite. He had a natural and friendly approach, sessions sounded fun but always productive. Although Jakob had sessions planned he would readily adapt them to suit on the day. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jakob.

Jakob is doing a great job tutoring my son for his GCSEs. My son is enjoying the lessons and has no complaints. I`m very happy with the way it`s going and Jakob is very nice, polite and inspiring.

Jakob tutored my daughter whilst she was working towards an A Level in Chemistry. I can say without any doubt he is a competent, confident young man who is able to help and support individuals in their learning. Lessons were always organised and well planned, he always gave feedback and was available if my daughter had an queries. I would 100% recommend Jakob!

Ellie seems to be really benefiting from the maths sessions . She really relates to Jakob who explains the subject in a way she enjoys and understands.
-FirstTutors, Oct ‘17

Jakob has been tutoring my son (aged 15) during the course of 2016/2017, to prepare for his GCSEs in Maths and Science. He was officially recommended to us by Farlingaye High School`s KS3 head of year, amongst other teachers, and we are very grateful for this valued advice.
His work has been impeccable, accurate, and efficient. He has a smart way to explain the topics so the pupil can get the whole picture of it and absorb very well the procedures and the concepts. Through a discussion based approach to tutoring and an intelligent organization of the contents followed with accuracy, Jakob develops self confidence in the pupil, crucial to face the exam experience.
I sincerely recommend Jakob for professional tutoring.

Friendly and flexible, Jakob gives effective revision techniques that you can use for other subjects. The whole experience has really boosted my confidence. A* tuition!
-FirstTutors, Mar ‘18

My daughter has had a few learning sessions with Jakob, Jakob is a nice, polite young man who know his stuff, Jakob learning style suits my daughter, he reflects on his tutoring throughout his sessions and not just at the end and he is always clarifying whether or not she understands questions once completed. He makes her feel at ease so any questions ask is not a problem, they discuss everything relating to Chemistry from the very basics to A Level.
I believe Jakob will help my daughter to achieve a very good A Level result next year. Jakob is aware of my daughters objectives, he is enthusiastic in his delivery, aware of my daughters needs (gaps in her knowledge) and uses his expertise in mentoring her.
Both I and my daughters father have been present whilst our daughter received tutoring and we both 100% recommend Jakob.
-FirstTutors, Sep ‘17

Jakob is reliable and highly motivated in helping people. I found him to be very supportive and someone who is easy to get on with.
-Student from Farlingaye, Jun ‘16

I have really enjoyed your lessons, we have had a lot of fun and you explained everything so much simpler with easier techniques than I had previously learnt. Thank you very much for helping me this year!
