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

Reviews for Austin math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Austin area.
Megan S.
My son went to many tutors before Rebecca and none of them helped. Their style was different yet similar enough in the way that it was book-based. With Rebecca, I saw something that my son hadn't done with his other tutors before: incorporating games into the learning. It took a little while for him to trust Rebecca, but she was patient and understanding. She told me that she's tutored many kids like this in the past and that its going to be okay. About 1 month in, I could see how much progress was made: he went from a 60% in social studies to a 90%. Rebecca told me that grades don't matter as much as actually comprehending the material, so she made sure that he was comprehending...and he was! After so many failed attempts, we are so lucky to have found Rebecca and would recommend her 10 times over.

He is very knowledgeable and personable. Always punctual and checks in before school breaks to see if we would like to have a session or skip. He is able to relate really well with my son and we have had him tutor our oldest daughter and now our son. He has been our families tutor for 4 years now. We can't imagine having anyone else tutor our children in math and engineering.

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!
