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 am interested in and take joy in attending to the wants and needs of my students. I carefully spend my time crafting exercises and looking through various curricula and books to aid students in becoming the best version of themselves in their math and/or physics classes. Having tutored students in these subjects for the past 5 years and a double bachelor's degree in Physics and Astrophysics from UC Berkeley with a >3.5 GPA in both majors, I consider myself a highly qualified tutor. I hope that we can make an arrangement and I can best serve you!...

I'm a high school student passionate about STEM. I enjoy learning and want to share my passion with others. I have tutored students from grades 6 to 11 in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Physics, Chemistry, Essay Writing, and College Counseling. I can tutor in English, Russian, and Ukrainian. As I am also a student, I have taken the courses recently, and they are fresh in my mind. As I have been immersed in a high school environment, I can offer relevant insights and resources tailored to the requirements of today's courses. I approach tutoring with patience, understanding, and a genuine desire to help others succeed.

I’m devoted to helping kids of all ages learn and improve their skills in any subjects. I have years of experience with teaching kids from elementary through high school. I am very knowledgeable in many subjects, such as middle school mathematics, high school mathematics and many AP college courses. In addition, I provide strong writing suggestions for any types of essay for English and history, including AP classes. I am always very open to hearing new ideas from students as there is always many solutions to a single problem.

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 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.

Reviews for Santa Barbara math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Santa Barbara area.
Karen L.
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!

Tai is an amazing tutor! He takes his time with explaining the materials and going over different math problems. He creates conversation so one can feel comfortable throughout the session. I got a solid A with his help! I could not have done it without his expertise and professionalism. I would highly recommend Tai for anybody. He is worth the price! Thank you Tai!
