With expertise in school planning, private tutoring, and test preparation, My Learning Springboard is a boutique multidisciplinary educational consulting firm located in Manhattan with direct services across the New York City and Washington, DC metro areas as well as Palm Beach County, Florida. Through virtual learning and consultation, we work with students and families across the United States and internationally. The videos below begin to tell more about our story, our approach, and our services.
Our YouTube Channel
While our website features hundreds of blog posts, resources, and a useful search tool, we know that curated videos and digital storytelling are an essential and complementary way of sharing our passion, our expertise, and the positive experiences of our families, students, and teachers. To that end, there are now over 40 videos available for you to discover on our YouTube Channel as well as integrated across our website.
Our Leadership Team
Under the leadership of Brad Hoffman and Faya Hoffman — a husband-and-wife team and both Board Certified Educational Planners and Learning Specialists — along with their colleague and mentor, Laurie Gross, a Special Educator and Instructional Coach — we support students and young adults from preK through college and beyond.
School Planning and College Counseling
Brad Hoffman and Faya Hoffman support families with admissions consulting and school planning support at every level from nursery through college, which includes both day schools and boarding schools, colleges, and young adult programs.
Brad and Faya each have three specialty designations through AICEP and IECA:
- Mainstream school planning (typical schools, both day and boarding schools)
- Specialized school planning (day and boarding schools for students with learning disabilities)
- Therapeutic school planning (includes therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers, wilderness programs, and in-patient treatment)
Private Tutoring and Test Preparation
Our private tutoring and test preparation services — featured in the videos below — are tailored to the needs of each individual student. Because of our expertise in curriculum and instructional design as well as targeted intervention and specialized instruction, we’re able to provide remediation or acceleration as appropriate. Instruction is delivered by skillful classroom teachers or professors, learning specialists, or subject matter experts depending on each set of circumstances in collaboration with our leadership team. Families ultimately choose their preferred educators and we customize the experience every time.
Growing With Families Over Time
Our mission is to help each student reach their full potential by becoming a confident, successful, and lifelong learner. We involve students and parents in the decision-making process from the start, together selecting the best tutor or team for each family’s needs. Families work closely with our leadership team throughout their time with My Learning Springboard to customize their experience, facilitate strategic planning, and ensure success.
For Brad, Faya, and Laurie, they’ve tremendously enjoyed growing with families over time and celebrating milestones and life cycle events, including graduations at every level from preschool through graduate school, recitals and performances, scholarship awards, b’nai mitzvahs, and even marriages!
