I am writing this far too late. I used Blake Tutoring Services for my Spring 2020 class (PreCal). I had spent so many years thinking less of myself and my mental competencies because math just isn’t my strong suit. Alexander was so patient and understanding. He made me feel comfortable in the vulnerable position of admitting that I didn’t understand or that I was lost (which happened more often than I wish to admit). He would check in on me throughout our lesson. He would motivate me when I, frequently, got discouraged (and not in a cheesy way... In a genuine way.) He found multiple ways to explain the same lesson until he found one that clicked for me. He let me learn how I learn best (allowing me to share my screen and work through the class/homework problems with him as commentary, switching the screen when he needed to go into detail). Not to mention, he makes booking with him so stinkin’ easy. His website interface is easy to navigate. His appointment slots are helpful and concise. After booking there’s calendar integration so your tutoring session shows up on Google (or WeekCal and Apple if synced to your Google). The event even had the zoom meeting notes that you need when the time comes with the link to easily go to your lesson. He made the subject I have the most difficulties with so easy. I’m SO grateful for you. If you need a tutor, you’re doing yourself a disservice by not working with Alexander. (Actually. On second thought. Don’t hire him. Leaving all his availability open should allow me to get my sessions in. Yes. Go somewhere else. Lmao.) Honestly, though. I can’t thank him enough. (Also, Alexander when you read this... I’m working with a counseling team that identified me as having adult ADHD. No wonder we had to go over the topics so many times. Here I thought I was just... slow or stupid when it came to school. Thanks for making me feel smart and empowered with math and learning in general.)Jul 14, 2020VerifiedBlake Tutoring Services's reply
Thank you so much for the phenomenal review, Remy! You were able to pick up the material and progress at such a great pace. It was awesome working with you this past semester!
Alex is an amazing tutor. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and offers flexible scheduling options. With his help, our son has grasped a deeper understanding of the lessons he has learned in class. Our son had a B- in Geometry, after a few sessions with Alex he was able to close out the semester with an A+. Alex is patient and kind. Our family is lucky to have found him.Jul 21, 2019Review from GoogleBlake Tutoring Services's reply
