  • They are excelling in school and need more challenging tasks
  • You are no longer able to provide help with homework or learning

On average, students take 9 to 50 sessions.

What do private math tutors do?

My son needed help improving his math grade and Sai was very helpful and easy to work with. He was patient and took his time explaining complex concepts. My son’s grade went up and he can’t wait to work with Sai again next year.

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

Lenora is an excellent math tutor. I would highly recommend her without hesitation. She was well versed in Algebra but, more importantly, she's a great teacher and an inspiring confidence builder. She helped my daughter late in the semester with several urgent and long review sessions -- prior to this, I had never seen my daughter confident in her ability to handle math tests. And she did! After meeting with Lenora, her scores improved and she voluntarily retook a couple of past tests to get her grade up. Thank you, Lenora!
