Jen D. says, "We first hired Mr. Tocchi when my son got stuck in Algebra a year ago. My son asks for sessions with Mr. Tocchi whenever he gets stuck because he knows he will learn from an experienced educator. Mr. Tocchi's years of being a math teacher have made him an excellent tutor who can help students work through their math obstacles and have confidence and clarity as they tackle harder topics. Mr. Tocchi has helped my son with Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Trig, and we will continue to call on him for the foreseeable future. HIGHLY recommend." Read more

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
