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

Being a tutor is a rewarding experience—it's about guiding, supporting, and inspiring students to reach their academic goals. Working with students involves patience, adaptability, and the ability to explain complex concepts in simpler terms. I believe I'll do an excellent job as a tutor because I'm committed to understanding individual learning needs, adapting my approach accordingly, and fostering a supportive environment where students can thrive and succeed.

I am a certified K-9th-grade teacher that started tutoring Math in 2010 in Elementary Math, Prealgebra, Algebra, and Geometry. I have a large number of satisfied customers and have worked with a couple of families for more than a year each. I always make sure that a child understands the topic we are covering before we end our sessions and will spend extra time with them to make sure they are satisfied.

Hi, my name is Jimmy Chakkalakel. I am a college graduate at Saint Louis University with a major in Biology. I first found my love for tutoring at the University while tutoring some of my peers in Science based classes and when I joined a club through my University in which we tutored high school students in subjects they were struggling in; while focusing on state testing tutoring as well. If i were to say which areas I thrive in tutoring, it would be Math and Science. I am a patient tutor who enjoys seeing students who were previously struggling in a material finally have a breakthrough. I have been tutoring on and off since 2015.

Graduated from UC Berkeley Computer Science in two and a half years total. I've been tutoring everyone around me, starting with friends in high school. I am the go-to person for math and computer science knowledge. Teacher's assistant for AP Computer Science and worked at PayPal as a full stack software engineer. Bay Area local for 22 years. Dog lover. Great with teenage kids, because I am one. I enjoy teaching people and know that they understand a little more. Tutoring everyone is very natural to me, and so is learning any subject that I need to help someone with. I also notice that tutoring is a much deeper profession and often I can help

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!
