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.

Reviews for Elgin math tutors

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!

Rachel tutored my daughter for two years in Math. Both my daughter’s classroom grade and her Math MAP score improved significantly. Rachel was flexible when it came to scheduling and understanding when it came to last minute tutoring requests prior to tests. She’s both professional and caring at the same time.

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!
