Introduction: Hi, my name is Alexander Blake, and I have been tutoring for over 10,000 hours of successful tutoring sessions! In my time tutoring, I have tutored elementary through graduate level students. I have successfully prepared students for SAT and ACT Math tests, and up to Calculus level work. In high school, I was in an accelerated math program where I was able to take AP Calculus AB my junior year, and AP Calculus BC my senior year. After taking the AP Calculus AB & BC Exams, I scored a 5 out of 5 on both tests. My tutoring philosophy focuses on the individual. I like to know what each of my clients likes to do outside of school so I can relate the math concepts they are learning about things they enjoy doing. To accomplish this, I personally design my lesson plans and customize them to my client’s personality. For example, if I have a student that plays basketball, I will have them solve problems that incorporate concepts of basketball, such as finding a team's field goal percentage. By focusing on each person uniquely, I am able to fully understand why the student is not grasping certain concepts and can help them understand concepts and terms they are already familiar with. This is why all of my students have been and will continue to be successful! I am available for online, group, and individual sessions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon to help you achieve your academic and personal success!

It was great working with Mr. Blake. He was very knowledgeable in the areas that I was struggling in. He has helped me gain a better understanding in probability and statistics to include: t-test, Mann Whitney U test, Chi Square, sampling, Type I and Type II error along with many other statistical test used through out my course. Mr. Blake is capable of using terms that are understandable and then translate them back into the math language/ terminology. I really appreciate all his help, he was on time, he made the most of the time, he was encouraging and documented things during the session for notes later!! His availability seemed to be around the clock even if I had to wait until after 11pm to meet with him because the other times were booked. I've enjoyed my tutoring sessions because Alexander Blake made it easy to grasp. I'm a 35 year old female who has been out of school for more than 10 plus years. Mr. Blake helped refresh some knowledge and expand it. Thank You

Alexander was a great calculus tutor! His extended knowledge was evident and he simplified all the difficult concepts to ensure easy understanding. He was professional, friendly, and punctual. He took his time to know the student he is working with to create a warm environment. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality math tutor!

Alex possesses the most important quality of a teacher and that is endless patience. He was happy to repeat and repeat and repeat the same concepts I could not get over and over again. Never exasperated and always encouraging, he finds a way to help you understand. He always had a spot open for me, sometimes at the last minute of complete panic, he kept calm. I could not have passed statistics without him.

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.)
