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.

    I value my privacy and normally do not write reviews but our family is incredibly grateful to the SoFlo team. They did an outstanding job with my child and I am grateful for their excellent service, professional approach, and honest feedback. As a company they strive for greatness and the effort level shows. The tutor was able to connect with my child as a coach and a Mentor which boosted his confidence a lot. The SoFlo approach focuses on the individual student's needs and teaches students how to approach various types of SAT questions. At the end of sessions they give actionable feedback along with homework for the next week. The system worked for my child. For the parents out there shopping for an online SAT tutor there are many options. I have done my research and called many of them. We had 3 trial sessions, and choosing SoFlow as an informed choice. Save yourself from stress of shopping around and make SoFlo your first choice. They fill up fast but that is because of their great results.

    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.

    "My name is Mohammed, and I will be attending Stanford next fall. I have been fortunate to study with SoFlo SAT Tutoring. The experts at SoFlo helped with SAT Test Prep, college application writing, and math tutoring. I give my highest recommendations to the SoFlo Team because of the individualized attention they gave me, and the subject expertise they have. For example, every single tutor scored in the top 1% percent on the SAT or ACT and comes from a top school like Stanford or Princeton. They did a deep analysis on my SAT/ACT weaknesses and my tutoring focused ONLY on those question types that were holding my back. Which was great because I knew most of the test and only focused on the few questions i was getting wrong. I've been blessed to achieve a perfect 1600 SAT score and maintain almost perfect grades because of SoFlo Tutors. The founder Adam Shlomi is a smart and caring professional who always gave my family top notch guidance. After using SoFlo for SAT prep we were so impressed that we returned for comprehensive college application counseling. My parents have been hiring tutors for me since I was and kid and SoFlo Tutors is by far, this is the best tutoring company I've worked with. Good luck students!"

    "My daughter absolutely loved working with SoFlo Tutors. She only had a few weeks before her upcoming SAT and we were panicking. We wanted to utilize every resource possible to raise her score. So yes, we even hired multiple tutors from different agencies. Compared to the others, we quickly saw how amazing Adam's team was, and we switched exclusively to SoFlo Tutors. Our tutor is an absolute genius. She can take the most complex concepts and find clear ways to explain them. If my daughter Jessica ever doesn't understand she immediately realizes and slows down the pace. Jessica doesn't even have to ask her to re-explain, the tutor just knows that the concept didn't stick. At SoFlo Jess started with a diagnostic test that helped her tutor understand her strengths and weaknesses to find ways to explain concepts specifically to her learning style. SoFlo did a great job creating a personalized studying game plan. After 3 weeks of tutoring, I noticed Jess was just below her goal score. With one week left, Emily recognized the small gap and taught Jess tricks for her least favorite topics (Commas and grammar rules). On test day, we got the exact score we wanted!! The whole SoFlo team is great. Whenever I had a question about testing dates or how to pay they quickly gave me an informative answer with a friendly attitude. Again, I can not recommend SoFlo Tutors highly enough."

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?
