Karen L. says, "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!"

This personalized approach gave my daughter more confidence when working problems on her own. We will definitely be booking another session with Omar!" Read more

Hi Everyone! I simply love Math! Math isn't only about solving problems, but understanding the student's mind. I specialize in discerning how a student comes to a solution and how they apply their life experiences to learn math. Schools tend to teach in a "one mind"/"one answer" approach and from my experience this has led students to limit their gifts in order to conform to a rigid formula, making it more difficult for individuals to have interest or success in their classrooms. I graduated from Universtiy of California, Berkeley and have taken both upper and lower division math courses. I have tutored individuals and classes during high sch...

Reviews for Plano math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Plano area.
Kangsoo Y.
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
