Karen L. says, "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!"

Hi, my name is Christa. I love working with students! Fun fact: I can say the dialogue from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by heart. 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 patient and caring type of person! I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency. I studied Mathematics at Wayne State University and have been tutoring for 2 years. At SoFlo, we realize that Math and Science tend to build on thems

Kangsoo Y.
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

Jeff did a great job of helping my daughter with her college Chemistry class. I am sure that is why she got an "A" in it. She was having difficulty understanding the topics and he explained the material so that it was clear to her. My daughter will be working with him again when she takes her next chemistry course. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants to do well in their chemistry courses.
