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.

    Thank you SoFlo for your math help with my son! He loves your teaching style and got an A on his last exam. His teacher is taking notice and sent me an email because my son is finally coming to class with his homework neatly completed. Amazing work!

    One more person to add to your list of SoFlo successes! One need not look any further for a statistics tutor. Our tutor Manny yield successful results! His experience is evident as is his love of teaching. He identified my problems at their root and created a customized plan to help me improve. My tutor is a great motivator, making the material relevant and easy to understand with nice examples. Thank you for helping restore my confidence. The world needs great teachers as talented and devoted as you are Manny. I can say that you are in a league of your own. What a great mathematician/statistician you are! I tried two other statistics instructors that had great reviews and high credentials, but they did not make a positive enough impact on my statistics learning like you were able to do for me. They also charged more. I achieved more learning in less time when you taught. You're smart and you care for all the right reasons. My only regret or misfortune was that I had not discovered you earlier. Results are achievable with you! I'm living proof!

    I knew I had struck gold within 5 minutes of meeting Emma from SoFlo, who didn’t passively ask me what I wanted to cover that day as other calculus tutors had, but asked to see my class syllabus so that she could understand what kind of support I needed. Throughout the semester, Emma supplied me with additional materials and strategies for working through problems, and was exceptionally generous with her time. I received an A in the class and am absolutely convinced that no amount of studying on my own could have replaced Emma's instruction. I highly recommend this gifted teacher to any student who is looking for comprehensive support in calculus.

    I had never heard of soflo before, but gave it a shot because they were friendly with good reviews. I have been blown away so far. My daughter's tutor Katrina is brilliant, sweet, and friendly. The support staff is excellent and I am lucky to have found such a great company. My daughter raised her grade algebra two from a D to an A.

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?
