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

My name is Cheryl McCosh, and I live in Houston with my husband, three Montessori children, and two dogs. I have been tutoring students of all ages for over twenty years in both mathematics and executive function and have taught Algebra and Pre-Algebra in the classroom. Helping to grow a student’s confidence in their mathematical abilities has long been a passion of mine. I love seeing the spark in my students’ eyes when they “get it” and math goes from something confusing and even impossible to something exciting and fun. My approach is to identify areas of strength and growth and build on the latter, while challenging the former. I help my

How do I know if my child needs a math tutor?

Your child may need a math tutor if:

  • Their grades or test scores are declining

  • 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.

Reviews for Houston math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Houston area.
Karen L.
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!

Besty M.
My son is on the spectrum and our tutor Lauren had an amazing connection with him. She was able to understand his quirky approach to problem solving and worked with him on his level. I’d have him work with her again in a heartbeat. She was smart and adaptable.
