Tatiana W. says, "I am lost for words for how Professional Donald was with my first session. The way he explained everything, the way he wrote everything out, the way he was patient with me on learning everything. The communication skills are OUTSTANDING !!!! He was early to the library. His energy IS AMAZING !!!! He’s VERY FRIENDLY !!!!! I was nervous, but the way he introduced himself to me and my uncle was so sweet and respectful. He’s EXTREME SMART and the other tutors I had didn’t do any of the things Donald has done. He’s BY FAR THE BEST TUTOR I’VE EVER HAD !!!!! HANDS DOWN !!!!!!" Read more

Here's a fun fact: I can recite every line of the movie The Princess Bride. Hi, I'm Sylvia. I love working with students! The most rewarding part of tutoring for me is when a new concept “clicks” with a student - their excitement is contagious, and it’s a privilege to be able to help them reach that point! On a more personal level, I am a friendly, outdoorsy, athletic, and talkative type of person! I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency.

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. Math tutors also show how to perform calculations, processes, and computations to complete their assignments.

What qualities make a good math tutor?

Look for the following qualities in a math tutor:

  • Expertise and knowledge on the subject
  • A good communicator and motivator

Mr. Phillips tutored my junior in Algebra throughout the summer last year and will be tutoring my soon to be sophomore for Algebra this summer. He is professional, punctual and thorough. My son looked forward to his sessions with Mr. Phillips because he was likable and helped him in a manner that made Algebra understandable. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing teacher/tutor for their child.

"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!
