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 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.

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.

Universal Achievement has been a success for our son. He was struggling with Geometry in his sophomore year (C minus grade) and was heading for [an even] worse grade. [However,] he ended the year with a strong B! My son enjoyed and benefitted from the short workouts before the [tutoring] session. It helped him get rid of the rigorous “mental workout” of being in school all day and helped him to concentrate on the tutoring session.
