Paula M. says, "My daughter was struggling with math in 7th grade during distance learning. She was falling behind, giving up and not willing to ask for assistance. We decided to try LiLing and wow, what an incredible difference it made. LiLing was able to quickly assess where are daughter was and what she needed for her grade level. LiLing caught our daughter up and covered everything she was supposed to know up to that point. LiLing always kept us informed of how our daughter was doing and what she was working on. We saw a huge improvement in our daughter's confidence as she began to realize she could understand math. She went from feeling lost and discouraged to being one of the best students in her math class. Her friends were always asking her for help with math. My daughter is now in 9th grade and feels totally prepared for high school algebra since she has already covered many of the concepts with LiLing. LiLing is very patient and genuinely cares about her students and we highly recommend her." Read more

Danielle G. says, "Aniruddha has been nothing but excellent, knowledgeable, and kind. He is a brilliant teacher who far surpasses any math education experience my daughter has had her entire school career. He has gotten my daughter from average grades in precalculus to all As. His style of teaching is interactive and what math education should be. He is kind and patient, as well as flexible with scheduling. We will continue with A2 tutoring for AP calculus next year, as I know his teaching will be far superior to any education she will get at the high school. I give my highest recommendations, and I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Aniruddha. A+++++" Read more

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
