“Mr. Blake is a very professional tutor he is punctual with the sessions as well as very attentive to the needs of the students. He is also great with following up to see if there are any other concerns you might have after the session. He provides notes upon request at the end of each session. My daughter used him for a college preparatory math course. He exceeded our expectations. He is definitely someone we will use if we shall need another tutor in the future. I highly recommend him if you are looking for professionalism with value within a tutor.”

Hi, my name is Alexander Blake, and I have been tutoring for over 6,000 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!
