How do I know if my child needs a math tutor?

Your child may need a math tutor if:

  • Their grades or test scores are declining
  • They get confused or frustrated with homework
  • They are having difficulty or lacking confidence with numbers
  • They are excelling in school and need more challenging tasks
  • You are no longer able to provide help with homework or learning
  • They have a learning disability

How many math tutoring sessions are needed?

Tutors suggest a minimum of one tutoring session per week until students build confidence, understand the subject, and improve grades. Sometimes, a few tutoring sessions can help students get back on track and regain confidence. If the student struggles in two or more classes, more sessions are recommended. On average, students take 9 to 50 sessions.

What do private math tutors do?

Math tutors are responsible for helping students with homework, teaching various mathematical concepts, motivating and boosting confidence, and teaching skills like note-taking, studying, and test-taking.

Kangsoo Y.
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

Sarrita helped me prepare for my SAT in December. I took the test in October and didn’t do great. I rly needed a good score for my college Apps. Thanks To Sarrita I got a 1550, up from 1240. Sarrita’s a rly good teacher and working with her is easy. She’s very patient and helped me a lot with my anxiety. My biggest prblem is with math cos I was sick during a lot of algebra 1 and 2 and I hate geometry. But she taught me how to spot certain questions and get to answers quickly. I’m glad I won’t need to take the SAT again. Sarrita’s also tutoring me for AP Chemistry and AP World History. One thing I like the most about Sarrita is that she believes in me. She’s very smart but she won’t intimidate you with how smart she is. She knows so much that I only ever need one tutor to help me with all my subjects.
