Jake's Teaching Style & Approach

How do you present material to students?

I operate and manage inquiries in an online chat format. Whenever possible I source the most relevant peer-reviewed resources to further student knowledge and comprehension on a deep level.

How you interact and work with students?

I provide clarity to student questions and encourage discussion at all times.

I encourage questions and frequently ask my own questions to elicit dialogue and facilitate the student's construction of their own knowledge base.
