Blake's SAT Qualifications

Scored a 1550 on the SAT

20+ people coached for SAT

Open to working with clients outside the U.S.

I graduated from Harvard with the John Harvard Scholarship (top 5% GPA), a major in Integrative Biology, and a minor in Computer Science. I have over 6 years of experience working as a full-time tutor for the ACT, SAT, and SSAT. I have worked with over 25 clients on the SAT alone, and I have taken almost every practice test that has been released since 2014. In my free time, I create SAT software for the TI-Nspire Calculator and free online instructional videos for a wide audience. On average, my students have enjoyed improvements of anywhere between 150-250 points on the SAT. I know how to teach the Writing sections so that you will receive a perfect score. Two of my students have increased their scores from 600-800 in this section, and most of my students end my program scoring perfectly on the writing section especially. In the two tutoring companies I have worked for in the past, I was promoted to the highest tutoring status. I also work with college admissions, and of the six students I worked with this year, three received interviews with Harvard. I tutor full-time, and I am ready to help you reach the score of your dreams.

Blake also coaches for ACT and College. View all.

Why do I coach?

Having graduated from an institution like Harvard, I'm acutely aware of the value and opportunities that an excellent education can offer. Yet, I also understand the pressures and challenges of preparing for competitive tests like the SAT and ACT. I believe my experiences and insights can help guide students through these challenges and demystify the process. Moreover, I also understand that standardized test coaching can be expensive, creating barriers for students from lower-income families. By offering my services altruistically, I hope to remove some of those financial barriers and contribute to educational equity. Finally, my coaching isn't just about test scores. I aim to help students cultivate critical thinking, problem-solving, and perseverance—skills that are not just crucial for these tests but are lifelong assets. I find immense fulfillment in knowing that I am helping to shape the minds of the next generation, and potentially giving them the tools they need to succeed in their future endeavors.
