“Blake is an awesome Tutor. He is very knowledgeable and verse in his chosen field. I was taking an online math class that is heading nowhere because I was having difficulty grasping the concept. Blake was able to guide and break down every difficult concepts into tiny bits and with his amazing help, I was able to pass this class and enroll into my Nursing Program. Without his help, I would have failed this class because it was the last prerequisites needed for my Program. I will say give him a chance and you will be pleasantly surprise on how he can help to alleviate your headache concerning any difficult math class.”— Lois in Henderson, NV on 10/10/2019
Hi, my name is Alexander Blake, and I have been tutoring for over 5,000 hours! I graduated with a Bachelor's in Computer Science from California State University, Fullerton. In my time tutoring, I have tutored elementary through college 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. This allowed me to not only begin my higher-level math courses early in college but has also enabled me to keep my math skills refined, and graduate with a 3.8 GPA.
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 individual and group 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!
