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

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!

One more person to add to your list of SoFlo successes! One need not look any further for a statistics tutor. Our tutor Manny yield successful results! His experience is evident as is his love of teaching. He identified my problems at their root and created a customized plan to help me improve. My tutor is a great motivator, making the material relevant and easy to understand with nice examples. Thank you for helping restore my confidence. The world needs great teachers as talented and devoted as you are Manny. I can say that you are in a league of your own. What a great mathematician/statistician you are! I tried two other statistics instructors that had great reviews and high credentials, but they did not make a positive enough impact on my statistics learning like you were able to do for me. They also charged more. I achieved more learning in less time when you taught. You're smart and you care for all the right reasons. My only regret or misfortune was that I had not discovered you earlier. Results are achievable with you! I'm living proof!
