We also offer free tutoring to those in need — money shouldn’t stop someone from achieving their dreams.

    We used this company over the summer and found it to be very personal and convenient. What’s more, it was effective. Our son’s score improved 120 points from the initial diagnostic given and thanks to our participation, we now qualify for a full bright futures academic scholarship and couldn’t be happier. 😁 Highly recommend!

    SoFlo SAT Tutoring is by far the best tutoring service I’ve come across. They’re not there to just take your money and give you a standard packet of practice questions; tutoring plans are tailored to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Adam helped me raise my ACT score by 6 points to a 32 which got me into UF! He’s now tutoring my little sister and she absolutely loves him so far!

    I signed up my daughter hesitantly because I didn’t know much about the company although to my surprise the team of expert tutors were top tier. My daughter raised her SAT score 210 points under Adam’s guidance. He was very willing to work around her strengths and weaknesses and really brought out her true potential. She soon after got into dream, Princeton. I owe so much to Adam.

    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 turn to SoFlo when it's my younger daughter's turn to apply. Thank you, SoFlo!
