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

I have been working as an independent tutor for over 18 years. I have a PhD in Civil Engineering and wide experience in teaching and tutoring. Tutoring is a way of teaching and a fulfilling reward for me. I enjoy seen people understanding something that was a struggle before and feeling proud of themselves. I tutor in math, geometry, arithmetics, algebra, science, and engineering. Also in Spanish for those interested in languages. Looking forward to meeting you and help you to discover that you know it just needed a bit of light and encouragement.

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.

Lynn has been tutoring my son in geometry since the beginning of November 2020. He is in the 8th grade. My son was initially hesitant about working with a math tutor, since he never had one before, but after a couple of meetings, he grew comfortable with and enjoys working with Lynn. He says that she understands the material very well, but more importantly knows how to teach it so that he understands it as well. Prior to working with Lynn, he was very inconsistent on his exams, but since working with Lynn, he has been scoring As and Bs. Sometimes he and Lynn can cover material ahead of his class, so he feels less stress during class.

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!
