Natalie K. says, "I enjoyed working with Mr. Quelet as he helped me understand the complex problems I had. His wide knowledge of physics and math allowed me to work with him on multiple subjects. I like how thorough his explanations are as it allowed me to really understand how a certain concept is being used. Setting up sessions with him was always easy and I will definitely ask him for help when I come across another hard STEM class!" Read more

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'm in my 20th year teaching middle/high school mathematics and am highly qualified to teach grades 5 through 12. I currently teach at Century Middle School in Thornton, Co. I started tutoring on the side because I'm passionate about education and enjoy helping people reach their goals. I found working one-on-one with students to be more rewarding then I could have imagined. Whether you are interested in improving your basic skills, developing a deeper understanding of mathematics and how it relates to your everyday life, or would like to challenge yourself mathematically, I can help.

I have a year of tutoring experience in a Science classroom. I worked directly with any student who needed an additional assistant but also had a small focus group of 5-10 students in each of my 6 classes. These were the students who needed the most extra help so I worked with them during class to make sure they didn't fall behind. Additionally, I held tutoring sessions every day after school where students could come for any homework help. In this setting, I tutored not only in algebra but also in Geometry, Biology, and English....

My daughter has always struggled with math. The tutors with Flatirons made a big difference. She ended up with an A in geometry! They made the process very easy by coming to our home and determining the day and time as she needed help.

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!
