Adam Shlomi

Georgetown University

Adam Shlomi founded SoFlo SAT Tutoring with 5 years of SAT/ACT tutoring experience, a Georgetown education, a 1570/1600 on the SAT, 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 SAT 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 SAT scores and connect with students.  Thus SoFlo SAT Tutoring 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 SAT 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 amount of students seeking him out for SAT prep.

Adam worked hard to search for incredibly talented tutors who were fun to work with and knew the SAT exceptionally well. From there he began to train them, imparting all the test tricks he has learned over the years. In order to better train students he also started the SoFlo SAT 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 SAT tutoring and tutors were able to hone their skills.

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