Recently graduated from Stanford University, I am a Physics and Astrophysics major with 4+ years of experience teaching and tutoring. I graduated high school valedictorian, with over 11 AP classes focused on Math, Physics, History, and English and a perfect 36 on the ACT exam. I volunteered at school events in high school and at Stanford involving young students and their families, where I learned how to bring out the best in children and in young adults striving for a college education. I love teaching; when a student gains that critical piece of understanding and it all adds up, it is truly magical. I reply quickly, and communicate openly w

Hello to all! I have been a private tutor for over 33 years and tutor most general education subjects including three foreign languages (i.e., Spanish, Japanese, and Tagalog), but my forte is mathematics. With the many years of experiences that I have, I also have experience in working with students with varying disabilities. And the grade levels that I tutor in range from kindergarten through 12th as well as college, returning adults, and some graduate level tutoring (e.g., GRE prep).

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

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. Math tutors also show how to perform calculations, processes, and computations to complete their assignments.

What qualities make a good math tutor?

Look for the following qualities in a math tutor:

  • Expertise and knowledge on the subject
  • A good communicator and motivator
  • A passionate and enthusiastic teacher
  • Ability to quickly identify the student's needs
  • Teaches to the student's strengths and minimizes their weaknesses
  • Personalizes each session and incorporates connections to the student's interests

Do math tutors help?

Hiring a math tutor helps struggling children keep up and advances those students who aren't challenged enough. A tutor helps improve any student's knowledge, learning skills, and confidence.

Is math tutoring worth it?

Tutoring is worth the money because:

  • Tutoring strengthens subject comprehension, boosts confidence, and builds important learning skills that a crowded classroom can't offer.
  • Tutoring improves grades and tutored students outperform their peers on examinations.
  • Students develop positive attitudes toward the subject after tutoring.

Diego showed his skills as a tutor explaining a math theory to my son that he hardly understood before. Diego is so experienced, knowing that not everyone learns the same way, and he knew right away how to teach complex concepts so my son got them!

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!
