About us

Jake Young – Founder and Content Developer

Jake is from the USA but has been living in Prague since 2010, where he got TEFL certified by The Language House. He’s a passionate ESL teacher who has developed his own private teaching practice, working mostly with corporate students at small and big companies around Prague. Veslio started when Jake found one video topic that his student was interested in, and made a custom lesson plan for it. It was so effective that he began doing this with all of his other students, and soon Veslio was in the making. You can find out more about Jake and the story of Veslio at his teacherpreneur biography page.

Andy Soell – Web Application Developer

Andy has been involved in the architecture and development of large-scale web applications for nearly 20 years and leads up to the Veslio platform development team. As an American transplant living in Prague, he’s all too familiar with the struggle of learning a new language and is excited to be involved in a service designed to lower the barrier for people interested in learning and teaching a new language. Andy speaks English, a little Czech, a little more Spanish, and is fluent in Pig Latin.
