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

  • 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 son’s sessions with SoFlo are excellent and efficient. The tutor quickly developed a good rapport with my son and got a lot of work done in one hour. I have been using them for 3 months and plan to use SoFlo for the whole school year

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.
