    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.

    We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them

    My daughter had to write a pre-algebra test in a few days and I was concerned she was struggling. I contacted SoFlo online, expressed my concern and in spite of the tight schedule they moved things around to accommodate my daughter. I witnessed the session and it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I love the teaching method, and that my daughter was offered multiple methods to solve the same problem. I recommend SoFlo highly!

  • Jessica Zhu

    My son’s sessions with SoFlo are excellent and efficient. The tutor quickly developed a good rapport with my son and got a lot of work done in one hour. I have been using them for 3 months and plan to use SoFlo for the whole school year

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. 

But the diagnostic test is optional. Students looking to start ASAP will often skip the diagnostic so they jump right into lessons.


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

I scored in the top 1% on the SAT, have been tutoring for 7 years, and went to an elite university. All of our tutors majored in math or education at top schools and our most recent hire graduated Cum Laude from Princeton.

We mostly hire education or math majors because they know the core concepts well, are passionate about educating, and can break down challenging concepts into easy-to-understand steps.


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

In-person tutoring is $100/hour. We also offer Zoom tutoring at the more affordable rate of $60/hour. There are no contracts or long-term obligations so you will only pay us if you like us. Nice people can ask for discounts.


How did you get started teaching?

Adam Shlomi founded SoFlo Tutors with 5 years of tutoring experience, a Georgetown education, and a shattered ankle.

Adam had been living in Washington D.C., but after breaking his ankle while camping with friends in West Virgnia he was forced to return to South Florida for surgery and recovery because of his health care policy. Adam was unable to put any pressure through his leg and his future was in doubt as doctors suggested he might never walk again. Despite the adversity, Adam committed to positive thinking and worked everyday to improve his physical health. At the same time, he began to take tutoring seriously, by building a website, establishing a legal company, and marketing to friends & family. Adam previously worked at College Experts and then later for College Vine, and felt confident in his ability to improve grades and connect with students. Thus SoFlo Tutors was born. But SoFlo was a part time operation. During the day, Adam worked as a data analyst for a local bank, helping them automate credit models.

Eventually, Adam’s ankle began to heal and daily physical therapy became a necessity. The comfortable bank job wasn’t able to fit into Adam’s recovery schedule and he was forced to quit his job and focus his attention on strengthening his leg so that he would be able to walk again. However, things happen for a reason and shortly after leaving the bank, word of Adam’s exceptional tutoring began to spread. Students raved to their friends and parents wrote shining reviews. Adam soon had to hire and train tutors to handle the number of students seeking him out for tutoring.

Adam worked hard to search for incredibly talented tutors who were fun to work with and knew math exceptionally well. From there he began to train them, imparting all the tricks he has learned over the years. In order to better train students, he also started the SoFlo Scholarship fund so that recent hires would be able to get experience working with real students. This program solved two problems as low income students were able to access tutoring and tutors were able to hone their skills.

Now SoFlo Tutors works with students across the world and Adam works hard daily to ensure students improve and tutors are receiving exceptional training.


What types of students have you worked with?

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


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 class so far? What has worked and what has not? We do not want to repeat the same mistakes as a past tutor.
