For all of the videos above you can find the exercises in Bumblebee Loops by Christopher Jones here on Amazon.com. 

Again, these videos are intended for you to practice with Chris.  Look at the clarinet left hand position videos with your clarinet and a mirror nearby to see if you are doing any of the proper or improper movements of fingers or the left wrist.   If so, work on those with these exercises.

Then, with the repetition videos, make sure you get your Clarinet Now to practice with Chris.  Take the proper rests in between each metronome notch movement, and then play.  If you are currently unable to make a certain tempo, stop playing, mark that tempo, and then back up the metronome and practice the slower tempo for a few weeks or months.   Then, try to move up the metronome again and see how fast you made it smoothly and evenly.  

If you have any questions, please address Chris here at Clarinet-Now.com or any social media sites AKA as @clarinetnow.   Best practicing and go get your Clarinet Now!!!  Best, Chris
