About Us

A Premier Test Prep Service

I started SD Higher Scores in 2007, when I became frustrated with limitations of the tutoring methods used by the company I worked for. I started off helping students with their high school math and chemistry classes, and expanded into test prep for the SAT, ACT, and GRE.

Since then, I have moved to Carmel Valley and now work with students from my office in Rancho Santa Fe. I have helped hundreds of students achieve their goals of getting the best test scores they can. While I work with many students tutoring online through Skype, most of my students come from the cities of Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Norte, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Solana Beach, and 4S Ranch. Traffic near my office is rarely an issue, so students from these areas can get to me in less than 20 minutes, any time of day.

Test prep doesn’t need to be a scary, stressful ordeal. My passion is for helping students and their families get through this process without adding even more pressure to an already pressure filled time while getting scores they can be proud of.

When you can show a student that, with dedication and planning, you can learn to answer questions and solve problems that you never you would be able to, it feels great. Many of them can take that experience and apply it to learning in general, making them better students wherever they go.

My daughter had taken the SAT 2 times without the help of Blake and had a score sufficient to apply to some colleges. After I learned from an admission counselor that a higher SAT score would yield a better offer of financial aid I figured that I would give Blake a shot. Well, he paid off big time. Her score went up 150 points and yes she received more money for all 4 years. Best investment ever!!! I have since used Blake for my grandson Andrew and have referred him to many people. It has always worked well.

I wasn’t a believer at first, didn’t think Blake could really make a difference…but he sure did! Blake was able to motivate my daughter to prepare for her SAT by working harder and smarter. She was able to improve her SAT score by 160! My daughter and I are so grateful for his patience and confidence in her, especially when my confidence/patience was so low. Blake also kept me posted on her progress and was honest with his feedback. With Blake’s guidance, her new SAT test score has given her new hopes! I highly recommend Blake for SAT Prep!!

I would recommend Blake to any parent who is looking for a reliable, knowledgable and encouraging tutor for the SATs. My son has learning issues so it was very important to find someone who could understand his abilities and appreciate his learning differences in order to put together a solid study plan. My son had a goal for the SATs and by working with Blake he was able to meet and surpass that goal by 100 points! Thanks Blake for being there for our family!
