Anshika M. says, "I had the privilege of being tutored by an exceptional physics and math tutor, and I cannot praise his skills and teaching techniques enough. From the outset, it was evident that he possessed a profound understanding of the subjects, effortlessly navigating complex concepts with clarity and precision. His teaching approach was nothing short of transformative. Rather than resorting to rote memorization, he emphasized understanding the underlying principles. This not only deepened my comprehension but also equipped me with the tools to tackle a myriad of problems independently. His ability to break down intricate theories into digestible components made even the most challenging topics accessible. One aspect that truly set him apart was his patience. No question was deemed too basic, and he encouraged a supportive and inclusive learning environment. His willingness to revisit topics until they were fully grasped demonstrated a commitment to each student's success. This approach fostered a sense of confidence, allowing me to approach problem-solving with newfound assurance. Beyond the curriculum, he seamlessly integrated real-world applications into our sessions, illustrating how physics and math were not abstract concepts confined to textbooks but essential tools applicable to everyday scenarios. This holistic approach not only made the material more engaging but underscored the practical relevance of what we were learning." Read more

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

His methodological approach in making sure that you understand every little aspect of a concept makes him unique as a tutor. I must say I passed Calculus class because of him within a short span of time given I didn’t know much about the topics. He is my goto tutors from here on.

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!
