Jared is a very knowledgeable teacher who works hard to make every lesson fun. He is very easy going, which makes the language learning process (and all of its inevitable mistakes) much less frightening.

Fantastic -- Jared puts you at ease. Learning via Skype was much more efficient than in a classroom.

Jared did an outstanding job with my socially anxious 15-year-old. He gave a lot of feedback, was clear, and made the lesson fun.

Jared is very knowledgeable. My only minor criticism is that because he is knowledgeable, he talks very fast, and it sometimes can be difficult to write everything down. However, this is to be expected over Skype, particularly since he cannot see when one is writing and when one is not. He also knows a lot of websites with Finnish music, vocabulary drills, grammatical explanations, and news, all of which are good study aids.

Jared gave brilliant, very easy-to-understand explanations of complicated Finnish grammar points; thank you, Jared! :)

Jared is whip-smart, funny and easy to follow. I'm slamming through practical phrases while developing top-notch pronunciation. I love my lessons!
