Lucy L. says, "Working with Beverly has truly been a gift. From foundational concepts to complex problems, she has been able to answer every single one of my questions. Not once have I been nervous or embarrassed to say I didn't know something! Beverly made it an open and honest space to learn and grow. I was so nervous about learning University physics, but she helped me with everything - even with reviewing the very-scary calculus that it required! Beverly has gone above and beyond to make my learning experience not just bearable, but enjoyable. I am very grateful to have had the chance to work with her, and I very highly recommend her as a tutor!" Read more

Brittany M. says, "Worked with this company twice in 2017 (Elementary Math and Reading) when they first started and 3 years later, in 2020 (Freshman Algebra) during the COVID Pandemic. The first time my tutor was Stephanie (Rodriguez) and the second time the Algebra sessions were with Thomas (Sumter). From the very beginning, their customer service was amazing. They made the process super easy, quick and simple to understand for someone new to hiring tutors. Their lesson plans were well thought out, and they put a lot of effort into planning their sessions. My son had a personalized reading and math plan. They also record their online sessions, if you want, so parents can review. They always make time for me to ask questions. Thomas would even call me to explain how the session went, even when my husband was at home. I have recommended this company to many of my friends and colleagues because they have left a positive impression on everyone I know who has worked with them." Read more

Here's a fun fact about me: I can say the dialogue from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by heart. Hi, my name is Christa, and I love working with students! Tutoring is incredibly rewarding when a new concept “clicks” with a student - their excitement is contagious, and it’s a privilege to be able to help them reach that point! On a more personal level, I am a patient and caring type of person! I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency.
