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

Hey there, I know you have a lot of tutoring choices, and let's be real, they probably have more experience, but I know stuff, am a good communicator, and we'll have fun doing it. I have undergraduate degrees in both mechanical and electrical engineering with a master's in control systems engineering. I have worked for 4 years at a national lab doing AI stuff but would rather be a nomadic teacher/writer. Help me fulfill my dreams while I help you learn MATH, PHYSICS, ENGINEERING, CHEMISTRY, or COMPUTER SCIENCE. Let's get you mastering those pesky subjects and passing classes in style :) Love, Nate

Hi there! I just graduated from the University of Washington (Seattle) in June 2023. I completed my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood and Family Studies (Teaching and Learning) in three years. I am currently attending Seattle University in their Masters in Teaching Program. I am working to become an elementary school teacher and I am student teaching in a second grade class. I have worked at a math tutoring center called Mathnasium in California and here in Washington. I absolutely love both kids and math and would love to help kids any way I can! I also thought a good way to measure my skill level is my AP test scores. In high school, ...

Chris Morris-Lent has helped my kids with everything from Pre-Calc and AP World History to ACT/SAT prep. He has a unique skill set with expertise in a wide range of subjects, along with the flexibility to alter his teaching style to best suit the student. He teaches not only academic subjects but also test-taking and studying strategies to streamline the students’ workload and improve test scores. Chris has a very relaxed style, with professional, high standards (in both business and tutoring).

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!

I hired StudentCircle for math tutoring during my child’s first year in High School. I sought professional guidance for my child as they showed early signs of struggle. Upon filling out a contact form on StudentCircle's website, the owner, Theo, called me back directly. We discussed academic goals and history, and I was impressed by his polite and personable approach. He provided me with a full understanding of the process and offered several impressive tutoring options. It was evident from our conversation that this company had their processes clearly defined, which is why I decided to move forward with StudentCircle. Theo connected me with Laura, an outstanding math tutor. Laura played a fundamental role in re-teaching challenging Math concepts. She was invaluable in providing guidance for achieving general academic success. Throughout my association with StudentCircle, I consistently encountered the highest level of professionalism from their staff and tutors. I greatly appreciated that I could pick up the phone to call Theo and my concerns were addressed quickly. Laura devoted herself to making the most of our tutoring time and tailored each session to address my child’s emergent needs. I wholeheartedly endorse their math tutoring services to any parent!
