28th February 2024
Fantastic - Jacob tailors the contents of the lessons exactly to my needs. He helps me develop my thought process by asking me questions which guide me to a deeper level of analysis. This has been very beneficial to me, as the ideas I write about are still my own, but Jacob has helped me significantly improve the level of my essays.

Jacob was very helpful in helping me prepare the structure of my IB English IO presentation. He was efficient with the time and provided helpful tips on the content that should be included or left out of my script. It is evident that he has experience working with IB related assignments as he was very familiar with the requirements and assessment criteria. He even provided a brief introduction meeting free of charge. All-in-all very helpful and friendly.
