Staff Member Profile

University of Texas at Dallas


Jakeb Spears joined CollegeDrive in April of 2019, about a year after he moved to Denver from Dallas, TX, where he completed his M.B.A. at The University of Texas at Dallas. Jakeb currently works full-time as a financial analyst for a healthcare consulting firm and, because of his year of experience tutoring the ACT and SAT during his undergraduate education, decided to join CollegeDrive part-time to reconnect with his passion of helping students excel in college entrance exams. Jakeb has observed that each student learns in a different way and strongly believes that his tutoring style should be tailored to the individual needs of the student he is working with. In his free time, Jakeb loves spending time with his dog Shelly at the Cherry Creek state park, playing basketball, and reading fantasy literature.
