About this tutor

We are exceptional SAT and ACT tutors that develop a personalized strategy tailored to your child's strengths and weaknesses. Our founder Adam Shlomi had an 800 in Reading and 770 in Math on the SAT -- good for the 99th percentile on both sections, went to Georgetown University, and has been tutoring for five years. We also offer free tutoring to those in need — money shouldn’t stop someone from achieving their dreams.

We analyze your student through a free diagnostic test and then create a personalized strategy that will focus on their weak points and teach the tricks of the SAT/ACT.  With this SoFlo method, our average student improves 150 points after 10 sessions.

Tutoring is incredibly rewarding. All our lessons are one-on-one which allows us to make real bonds with our students. The chemistry between student and tutor helps us motivate, inspire, and teach students with a new level of effectiveness. That effectiveness helps us get great results: score increases that change the lives of our students.

  • Eden Barlow

    My daughter had a great experience and although English is her second language, the tutoring helped a lot. She boosted her score 180 points in 6 weeks and I am planning to use SoFlo for my next child.

  • Lydia Henderson

    My daughters ACT score increased by 5 points in 1 month which was exactly what she needed for scholarships. Very happy momma!

  • Shelley Philbrick

    They were very responsive to my inquiry and prompt with arranging a tutor. The price packages are reasonable and they were flexible to our needs. They also carefully matched the tutor for the level my daughter was at. Our tutor has been flexible and excellent. She is helping build my daughter’s confidence for the upcoming SAT. I would highly recommend.

    We've truly had a wonderful experience with SoFlo Tutors. My daughter actually 'enjoys' her tutoring sessions - crazy!! After just 6 sessions her PSAT score increased by 190 points. Great value!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The incoming student will complete a diagnostic assessment so we can assess their strengths and weaknesses in order to make a personalized growth strategy. This combo test helps us pinpoint the student’s weaknesses early so we don’t waste time covering topics they are comfortable with.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I scored a 1570/1600 on the SAT and went to an elite university. All of our tutors scored at least a 1500 on the SAT and our most recent hire graduated Cum Laude from Princeton.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

SoFlo has two pricing options and nice people can ask for discounts.

1) Our core tutors charge $60/hour with 0 fees. Plus there are no contracts so if we aren't the right fit there are no long term obligations. Core tutors offer the best value with the least risk. Core tutors scored in the 99th percentile, aced SoFlo's 30-hr intensive training requirements, and are involved in ongoing professional development.

2) Our premium tutors charge $90/hour with long term contracts. Our most experienced, in-demand tutors book up fast and are recommended for very high or low scoring students, students with learning differences, or those who want our most experienced, proven tutors. Premium tutors have consistent exceptional feedback, a longer track record of success, higher average score gains, and professional tutor certifications.


How did you get started teaching?

I worked at College Experts, an SAT prep center, before the founder passed away. In 2020, SoFlo helped 2083 students raise their SAT/ACT score with 1-on-1 tutoring.


What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with students from all over the country for both excellence and remediation. We teach all levels and put a lot of thought into the pairings between student and tutor to ensure there is student-tutor chemistry. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A mother came to us in tears because her daughter scored an 11 on the ACT. She was embarrassed and ashamed, but we told her that everyone starts somewhere and we’d like to sit down with her daughter to see if we can help. After months of hard work and studying the daughter brought her ACT score up 11 points to a 22. Now she can qualify for an athletic scholarship at West Point. Life changing score increase.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Choose a tutor that you feel comfortable with. Student tutor chemistry is key to success. If the student likes their tutor, they are more likely to pay attention, more likely to do their homework, and more likely to improve their score. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How have I been studying for the exam so far? What has worked and what has not? We do not want to repeat the same mistakes as a past tutor.  

What exam dates should I be targeting? What is my goal score on those dates?

Between the SAT or ACT which exam is a better fit for my strengths as a test-taker?
