How SoFlo Works
We have a proven 3 step process for raising SAT/ACT scores
Step 1) Diagnostic Test
Students will start with a diagnostic test so we can assess their strengths and weaknesses before starting SAT/ACT test prep. We will identify their specific issues — maybe they’re forgetting the slope formula, confused by the question wording, or struggle with timing. This 2 hour diagnostic test will help us pinpoint the problem.
Step 2) Tutoring Sessions
We will create a unique SAT tutoring strategy centered around your child that teaches the core concepts and tricks of the test. We also ensure there is student-tutor chemistry. If your child likes their tutor, they will be more likely to pay attention, more likely to do their homework, and more likely to increase their score. This SAT test prep strategy is applied weekly during a two-hour Zoom session scheduled at your most convenient time.
Step 3) Practice! Practice! Practice!
We assign 1-2 hours of homework per week to ensure students are practicing the test outside of tutoring sessions. During tutoring sessions we will turn the mistakes from homework into learning opportunities. Studying is like going to the gym: if you put in the work, you will get strong.

Parent, Univ. of Michigan
230 Point SAT Increase
1490 SAT Score
SoFlo was able to inspire my son Matthew to work hard in a way I didn't think was possible. I looked hard for an SAT tutor and am glad I found SoFlo.
Student, Univ. of Florida
6 Point ACT Increase
SoFlo Tutors 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 were tailored to my strengths. SoFlo's online ACT prep helped me raise my ACT score by 6 points to a 32 which got me into UF.
Parent, Princeton Univ.
190 Point SAT Increase
1560 SAT Score
I wasn't sure about Skype or Zoom tutoring at first, but gave it a try because of my daughter's busy schedule. I'm glad I did. My daughter Sarah improved her SAT 190 points which helped her get into Princeton! I couldn't be happier!
What Makes SoFlo Special?
On average, students improve 110 points after 10 sessions. The SoFlo SAT/ACT prep method gives individualized attention to each student so they can reach their full potential.
Most students meet after-school and on weekends. Students can Zoom into sessions from their pajamas and schedule lessons around their packed calendar.
Let's talk money. How much do you charge?
SoFlo has two pricing options.
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.
Who are the tutors?
All of our SAT/ACT tutors come from elite universities and have all mastered the college admissions process. Each tutor has scored in the 99th percentile on the SATs, attended a top university like Princeton University, and is fun and engaging to work with. We have a competitive tutor application process, and we rigorously train our tutors until they are experts at teaching the tests. Learn more about our tutors’ backgrounds and experience by visiting the Our Tutors page.
Where are you located?
Although our home base is in South Florida, we offer online SAT/ACT prep to students all over the world. Our tutors are located across the United States with teams in New York, California, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, and more.
What are your results like? Do you have reviews?
On average our students improve 110 points after only 10 sessions. This is the result of their hard work, focused studying, and our valuable tutoring. Our job is to give them a consistent study plan, teach them tricks of the test, and motivate them to stay on track. We have a lot of success motivating students to improve because they can relate to our young tutors. Having someone closer in age who is a mentor as much as a tutor leads to a better dynamic during sessions and larger score improvements. But don't take our word for it, watch what SoFlo parents have to say here.
How do you show math work online?
We use an online classroom that allows us to show our work step by step. This classroom makes it easy for students to show their mistakes and for us to demonstrate the possible ways to solve a question.
Do all of your students end up in the Ivy League?
SoFlo has success with a variety of students who have a wide range of college aspirations. We tutor students from all backgrounds, but all students are seeking to improve their test scores. From an athlete with a 970 who’s hoping to get a D1 scholarship to an overachiever who is striving for a perfect 1600, we cater to students with many different college goals
What do you think of the college admissions scandal?
I am glad that I didn't need to cheat my way into college and instead worked hard to get good grades, have nice internships, and achieve a 99th percentile score. However, my parents worked to get me expert SAT tutoring that helped boost my scores. If I didn't have that privilege I might not be in the position I am today. The college admissions process is in trouble and the anger that arose from Rick Singer, Lori Loughlin, and everyone else evinces a larger societal frustration. I want SoFlo to be part of the solution, and that's why we created the SoFlo SAT Scholarship to offer free tutoring to underserved students. We want to ensure that all students, regardless of financial background, can have access to the elite test prep they need to achieve their dreams.
What are the differences between online and in person prep?
The main differences with online sat prep tutoring is convenience. Students are able to learn from their pajamas and can schedule sessions based on their availability. We use all of the same curriculum for our online and in-person tutoring plus the online sessions are 1-on-1 with a live tutor.
However online tutoring is not for everyone so we offer in-person tutoring as well. It's just more expensive.
You look pretty young. How old are you?
Our founder, Adam, is 24 years old. Most of the SoFlo team is made up of college students and recent graduates who crushed their exams, attended top schools, and enjoy teaching high school students. We see our youth as an advantage when it comes to connecting with high school students who are preparing for college.
I don't know if Zoom tutoring will work?
Zoom isn't for everyone. Some students need an in-person tutor to sit down with them. However, this new generation was raised with Zoom and Facetime. We also have no contracts, so we encourage you to try a session or two and then decide if online tutoring is the right fit.
Can I use FaceTime or Skype instead?
We aim to please. If you'd prefer to have SAT tutoring on FaceTime or using Skype that is fine with us. FaceTime is the easiest video-call to set up and many students will use FaceTime if they are calling us from an unusual location like during a family vacation where they wouldn't have access to their home computer.
I heard you offer free tutoring. Is that true?
That is correct! Through the SoFlo SAT Scholarship Program we offer reduced or free SAT tutoring. We believe that everyone should have access to high quality test prep so they have an equal opportunity to succeed. College admissions should not be a game won by a select few. In high school, Adam received discounted SAT tutoring which was instrumental in his acceptance to Georgetown. We now pass on the same help he received to the next generation. Parents and students with financial need are encouraged to apply for the SoFlo SAT Scholarship. Apply for the scholarship here.
What is Georgetown University like?
Georgetown was a great place to polish myself and prepare for the real world. I learned how to carry myself, give a presentation, send an email, and all the other soft skills that are crucial to success.
What is the SoFlo tutoring method?
The SoFlo method is centered around taking authentic SAT practice tests and learning from mistakes. Our tutors are trained to diagnose and explain exactly where students are making mistakes and how students can learn and improve.
Thanks to the SAT Question and Answer service we can offer our students real SAT tests that were administered within the last two years. These tests are the best material to study from because they most accurately represent the SAT students will see on test day. Other companies like try to predict or copy the SAT, while we teach directly from real tests.
From there in our online SAT tutoring sessions we identify where students are struggling, whether it be algebra and factoring or grammar rules and semicolons. We then review the core-concepts being tested so students are better prepared for their next practice SAT or ACT exam. Practice makes perfect and the best way to improve is to turn the errors from practice tests into learning opportunities.
For only $1, try out SoFlo Tutors in a 1 hour trial session. Our best deal ever! After this trial session, students can continue studying at the reasonable rate of $60/hour. Plus there are no contracts or long-term commitments so families can have as many or as few sessions as they please. We also have a free diagnostic test, no credit card fees, and no homework fees. You will only pay us if you like us.
After purchasing the $1 session you will receive an email to complete an intake form so we can learn more about your child’s goals and send you the diagnostic test. The intake form takes about 8 minutes to complete and will help us get you started ASAP. Because your child is taking the real exam with pencil and paper, we want them to do all their practice with pencil and paper. So ideally, you will print out the diagnostic test and your student will take the diagnostic at the kitchen table while following the time limits. No need to send the test back. Your tutor will reach out shortly to introduce themselves and schedule an initial session. We will score and review the diagnostic during that first session. After the first session, we suggest but do not require that students meet with their tutor once a week for 2 hours and complete 2 hours of homework. Studying is like going to the gym. If you put in the work, you will get strong. After the trial session, tutoring is $60/hour and there are no contracts or long-term commitments. You will receive an email invoice on Sundays following sessions that is paid with credit card.
Rather than pay a commission to salesperson, we want to give you chance to try out SoFlo risk free and see for yourself if SoFlo is the right fit for your family. So we’ve created a self service option to start tutoring for $1 and see if the SoFlo method is a good match.
