About Blake


Bio

I am a current graduate student at USC studying Biomedical Engineering. I have been tutoring for the past 5 years. I began tutoring when I was in high school by helping younger students with the ACT. I also have younger siblings and have tutored them in their school subjects (math, chemistry, physics). I have an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering, so I have a solid blend of math and science tutoring capabilities.

I am a current graduate student at USC studying Biomedical Engineering. I have been tutoring for the past 5 years. I began tutoring when I was in high school by helping younger students with the ACT. I also have younger siblings and have tutored them in their school subjects (math, chemistry, physics). I have an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering, so I have a solid blend of math and science tutoring capabilities.

I have completed organic chemistry courses, several physics courses (circuits, fluid mechanics, etc.), and up through differential equations in regards to math. I have tutored in all of those subjects while I was in college. I performed well on the GRE (>160 in verbal and qualitative) and for the past year have been helping my friends employ the strategies I successfully used. I'm happy to say that all of them scored in the upper quartile and have been accepted to graduate school.

Learning takes time and knowledge isn't immediately bequeathed during a tutoring session. When I tutor people, I really like helping to build a detailed step by step approach to solving problems. I think that it is crucial to understand the "why" behind problems so students are capable of handling any situation in the subject they are studying. I know that everyone has different learning styles and my tutoring approach is tailored to the individual so they can achieve their best results. I am very passionate about doing whatever it takes to see all of the people I tutor reach the level of success they want. Most importantly, I will be patient and give you my unwilling support.

I am available most days and on the weekends. I am more than willing to travel to tutor in person. I am excited to hear from you and look forward to working together in the future.

A Big Help

Blake was very patient and encouraging and covered a lot of material in a single session to help prep for a test. He even went a little beyond what was covered in class. Definitely worth the investment.

Truly the best chem tutor

Blake's lesson on rate laws was truly the best lesson I've had in chemistry in a really long time. He's clear, precise, and easy to follow. I'm really excited to meet with him again and learn more about chemistry.

Help for Molarity and Buffers

Blake has helped understand the concept of the a problem not just telling me what I should do. He ask me to explain why I am doing something and that helped me understand what I needed to do on the problem.
