Lynn V. says, "Ashish has a very clear plan, using the material and the concepts from the textbook he teaches in a concise way that is easy to pick up and work out. Ashish always tries to make sure you understand the concepts before moving forward and whenever there are difficulties in comprehension, he is able to explain things differently till you understand the concept. Ashish is also great at planning test strategies and determining the right amount of time to focus on each element of a class to maximize a grade. Allocating time and effort for the important parts of the classes is most important as it allows his time spent with students to be effective, rather than disorganized. Classes in college are often multifaceted and managing multiple aspects of grading can be difficult but Ashish's experience makes the process much simpler." 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 am flexible with the study material and focus on what the family needs. If the student needs help with math one session and then history the next, I can adapt. I have a daughter in grade school, so I have firsthand experience at what today's students are going through. I want to give my students the support and advice I was unable to benefit from at their ages.

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!
