sat prep, sat prep classes, sat prep course, sat prep tutoring, best sat prep classes, sat prep class, sat preparation courses Like it or not,  the SAT*or ACT® test will be the single most important exam of your child’s high school career. Your son or daughter should not take it, even the first time, without preparing properly.

My name is Lori Tofexis. I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania. I am the sole instructor for both SAT and ACT tutoring.

I hold a Professional Teaching Certificate from the State of Florida in Mathematics through Grade 12.

In my former career, I wrote for television, advertising firms and magazines.

Nowhere else in South Florida can you find an instructor with qualifications like mine.


  • I am a licensed teacher in the State of Florida. Your child will be taught only by me, never by a high school or college student.
  • I have over 10 years' experience in tutoring for these important exams.
  • I use only authentic SAT and ACT questions and materials. Most other material is a poor imitation.
  • There are valuable tricks and effective strategies, and I teach these. However, success depends primarily on thoroughly understanding the material.
  • One-on-one tutoring means that lessons are targeted at each student's weakest areas.
  • Significant score improvement achieved by 96% of students.
  • All tutoring hours are instructional. I never charge parents to watch their child take a test. Practice assessments and other materials are completed at home.
  • Realistic Mock Exams are given prior to all exam dates.

I don't hire any instructors because I've never found anyone who can teach as successfully as I can. Your child will never be taught by a college student, only by me.

While the big companies charge at least $175.00 per hour for a private tutor, my rate is $140.00 per hour.


Some of the new on-line teaching platforms are making it easier than ever to tutor remotely. The interactive whiteboard captures the collaborative nature of a personal tutoring session. I have very successfully tutored students in California and Europe in this manner.

My expertise and methods are available to you, regardless of where you live.

Without a doubt, summer is great time to prep for the SAT and ACT exams.
Now both tests are being given over the summer.

Which exam is better: SAT or ACT?

The answer to that often depends on the student. For some students it truly makes little difference. The scores will be similar regardless of which exam they take. For other students the results can be dramatically different.

Having worked with so many students, I can often predict which exam will be the better one. For other students, I employ diagnostic techniques and materials to choose the more suitable test.

Lori Tofexis was highly recommended to me, and Lori has lived up to that strong recommendation.

We focused initially on the ACT and then switched to the SAT exam.

I found Lori extremely patient, thorough, informative and helpful.
Without any hesitation, I enthusiastically recommend that high school juniors and seniors seek out her tutoring program.

I significantly improved my performance on the SAT, so much so that I was accepted at Princeton University!”

“Lori Tofexis tutored both of my sons. She is both professional and thorough. I am thrilled with my sons' SAT results, and have referred several friends to her already. The investment is totally worthwhile.”

“I brought my twins to Lori Tofexis after they had both received poor scores on the ACT. Her ACT prep methods are excellent! My son’s ACT score went up by 5 points and my daughter’s by 4 points. I am so happy with the job she did.”

“As a father of a senior who was totally lost on math I'll be eternally grateful to Lori. Her patience, dedication and kindness made a miracle on my daughter’s scores. She went from low 200's before last summer to 500's on her November SAT test.
We are very happy and looking forward to finding better colleges for her. I strongly recommend Lori - a teacher with a real method and a warm person to meet.”

"I would like to extend my personal thanks and gratitude to your tutoring company. Our experience with Lori was excellent! We are so grateful for all that she did for our daughter in helping her score high on the ACT.”
