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

Here's a fun fact about me: I can move my middle finger tendon without moving my finger. Hi, I'm Colin, and I love working with students.

I am currently a first-year student at the University of Cincinnati and have prior experience tutoring peers and from my National Honor Society during high school. I mainly have tutored math, more specifically Calculus I level topics. I took the AP Calculus AB exam and received a score of 5. I love tutoring because I helping others reach that "Ah ha" moment of properly understanding a topic and seeing the glow up in their face. My teaching style is where I first guide the tutee through the problems, and then slowly reduce the amount of support I give throughout the problems as they develop proficiency for the topic.

Hello! My name is Heather. I spent 3 years teaching high school math, before taking on a role at a local nonprofit organization. After leaving the classroom, I found myself missing the experience of helping young people embrace the excitement of learning and understanding math, which lead me to tutoring! Before becoming a teacher I received a bachelors degree in economics from the University of Dayton. I am also a certified yoga instructor and social emotional learning facilitator. Outside of work I love reading, cooking, and hanging out with friends!

Reviews for Covington math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Covington area.
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!

Jino has a gift of taking the mystique out of the most difficult areas of mathematics. He is funny and understands the "first impression" feeling that some people taking calculus must feel. We think the world of Jino and are so thankful we met him.
