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

I'm Savannah, by the way! Fun fact about me: Send me a TikTok and we can be great buddies, just so you know! Educating students is my favorite job. When a student "clicks" with a new topic, it makes tutoring that much more satisfying for me since their enthusiasm is contagious. It is an honor to be able to assist them in getting to that point. I am a nice, patient, and amiable sort of person, to put it more personally. I partner with SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring company, I work one-on-one with students to prepare for the SAT and ACT. I am a Vanderbilt University alumnus who earned a degree in computer science, performed at the top of my class o

TutorsPro is a life savor! There are so many positives! First, their tutors are very flexible with their time. There are numerous occasions where I need more time to work with my tutor or I have a conflict with a session, but the tutors always work with my schedule to make sure I never feel behind in class. They are willing to sacrifice extra time out of their life to make room for students to make sure they feel comfortable in any subject. Additionally, they are very easy to communicate with. I have never had a problem where we are not on the same page with session times. They are very happy to communicate with us and they always make sure there is room for a session. Lastly, most importantly, they always teach in a way where all students can understand. My grades would significantly be lower without a tutor in TutorsPro. I highly recommend TutorsPro if students want to be successful in a specific class.
