Kangsoo Y. says, "We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them" Read more

Deanne says, "My daughter had to take a dual enrollment class during summer school to get her history class off her plate for sophomore year. The reason I say had to....because there was a family vacation pre-planned and she was not able to attend the 1st semester. Whew...taking a dual enrollment was a big challenge....BUT grade potential matched us with a wonderful tutor to help her stay on track and insure she was checking all her resources and video were being completed on time. ERIN has been a blessing!!! Thank you to the staff at GRADE POTENTIAL ;) " Read more

When I tutor, I try to give curriculum materials that support the child's needs, but also help them to advance in school by aligning to the school's challenging material or supporting the level of struggle that some grade levels carry in Common Core subjects. I am a long term tutor 3 months to longer. I work to help students see growth in all their hard work practiced & expressed over time. I love to help students see school to be engaging by using materials that help them develop interest in school subjects....

Hey, I’m Francisco! I am a student at CSULA studying applied mathematics. Math can be challenging to learn, many people lose interest in it. We need to understand and comprehend the basic ideas and concepts of a specific part of math to make math simple. My goal is to help students improve their math skills and build confidence on themselves. Math is one of my favorite subject. I really enjoy playing with numbers and trying to figure it any type of problems/equations. Learning math should not just be computing numbers, but also to explain in plain words. I love to help people not just master material they thought they could never understand b...

I have been tutoring since I started my undergraduate physics degree in 2016. I am currently studying physics as a PhD student and have extensive knowledge in math and physics as well as some experience in computer science. I feel that every student is capable, often what is missing is individualized instruction in a way that makes sense to them. My favorite part of tutoring and teaching is seeing the student understand a new subject. The joy of learning something new is amazing....

  • You are no longer able to provide help with homework or learning

On average, students take 9 to 50 sessions.

My daughter had to write a pre-algebra test in a few days and I was concerned she was struggling. I contacted SoFlo online, expressed my concern and in spite of the tight schedule they moved things around to accommodate my daughter. I witnessed the session and it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I love the teaching method, and that my daughter was offered multiple methods to solve the same problem. I recommend SoFlo highly!

Grade Potential Tutoring is a fantastic resource for academic support and mentoring. I've been using their services for about five years, first for my daughter and now for my son. We worked with several tutors and we loved every single one of them! Particularly Kurt, who helped my daughter with her creative writing, and now Douglas, who works with my 6 year old son that counts the minutes to his next meeting with his tutor! The tutors are excellent and results are there to prove it! Moreover, I love the fact that the our you purchase are associated to your account and not to a particular student and never expire; so, theoretically, you can use them for your son in elementary school and use what's left for when he'll be enrolled in a Ph.D. program! :-)
