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. We are also able to help students in need through our SoFlo SAT Scholarship.

    I hired SoFlo SAT Tutoring to help my older son, Kevin, improve his SAT score and get into college. Hiring SoFlo is one of the best choices I ever made. They've changed my son's life by helping him get into Yale. It wouldn't have happened without SoFlo My son had an amazing test prep tutor, Charlie, who increased his score 260 points!! My son worked hard with Charlie, meeting him throughout the spring and summer in two-hour sessions once a week. Right from the beginning, the process was all very organized. Kevin took a diagnostic test that Charlie used to target certain aspects of the SAT. My son was better at math than English at the start, so Charlie worked through many practice tests with Kevin to show him the different types of questions and how best to answer them. Charlie was a great tutor who really got through to Kevin. Kevin took the SAT three times and improved his score 260 points from when we first started. We were so impressed with the SAT Prep that we started using SoFlo for college help. We worked with a college admissions counselor from Princeton to help Kevin write unique college essays and work with us through the application process. They helped Kevin create a healthy college list, with schools that were financially feasible for us and that fit Kevin well. It's been many years since my wife and I applied to college, so the process has changed a lot, and SoFlo's owner Adam, in particular, was very helpful in relaying information about strategies, deadlines, and the ways to write and edit Kevin's essays. Kevin had a lot of ideas for his essays, but he had trouble settling on one and putting it into words. Adam advised Kevin on which one of his desired essay topics could bring him the most success and then worked tirelessly through many rough drafts of essays until Kevin had his ideal personal statement (the main essay for college). Many of the schools Kevin applied to also have supplemental essays, and Adam helped Kevin brainstorm and edit those as well. My son was very busy during this time with sports and other extracurriculars, which I worried would pose a problem for scheduling, but SoFlo was able to work with us and our awkward schedule so that Kevin could get tutored and so that he could have his questions answered and essays read in a timely manner. They were always very patient with us, answered our emails quickly, and were very affordable. We looked at many packages for college counseling in particular, and this company gave the most bang for our buck. My son ended up getting accepted to his top choice school, Yale University, and I know that wouldn't have been possible without SoFlo's help. I recommend SoFlo for any parent looking to help their kid out with the difficult application process. They were a joy to work with, and I plan to to turn SoFlo when it's my younger daughter's turn to apply. Thank you, SoFlo! SoFlo improved my son's SAT score by 200 points in only 3 months! I found SoFlo SAT Tutoring on tutors.com and they were quick to respond plus there were no contracts so I gave them a shot even though I had not heard of the company before. The founder Adam was knowledgeable and friendly on our initial phone call and getting started was easy, just filling out a simple form. They had my son Greg take a diagnostic test to gauge his initial strengths and weaknesses. From there a polite young tutor reached out and began scheduling session. My son is always very busy because he is on the soccer team, but our tutor Charlie was very flexible and scheduled sessions at my son's convenience. We met with Charlie once a week for two hours over the course of about 3 months. I was able to track my son's progress because he was always doing practice tests for homework. His score was steadily climbing from week to week, and we were confident that he was going to improve his SAT score. After taking the SAT we decided to pause sessions thinking that we should wait until we see how Greg did on his test. Adam completely understood and did not pressure us to continue sessions. When the scores came out Greg improved over 200 points and scored a 1430 on the SAT. Tutoring is the best money I've ever spend and every step of the way SoFlo has been great to work with. I'm so appreciative!

    My daughter was really struggling with the SAT before we started with SoFlo. She had taken the test three times and was never able to break the 1100 mark. Once we got in contact with the company, Ellie did a diagnostic test and was swiftly matched with a tutor. Ellie worked hard with her tutor for about three months and the whole time we were praying that her score would improve. When the results came out, I screamed with joy when I found out that Ellie scored a 1290! The new score allowed her to get a very good scholarship (we're saving over $5000 per year!!) at the University of Alabama, where she'll be attending next year. We love SoFlo SAT Tutoring!

    My SAT score improved 230 points after using SoFlo SAT Tutoring. I started off with the in-person tutoring but because my schedule is busy with softball and track I switched to online tutoring. I had never done any online learning beforehand so I wasn't sure if it was going to be work, but my tutor was amazing and they used an online whiteboard that showed all of their work step by step. I really connected with my tutor and she has helped me as I've gone through the college process by talking about her experiences in college and what I should be thinking about. SoFlo SAT Tutoring is the best!
