Finding someone to assist with straightforward math or reading problems isn’t that difficult, but for more specialized support, many parents swear by My Learning Springboard, a network of tutors with a notably wide range of expertise. In addition to standard SAT prepping and curriculum assistance, offerings include bar mitzvah cramming sessions, weekend art appreciation, and teaching 11-year-olds how to balance a bank account. The company was founded eighteen months ago by Brad Hoffman, an experienced teacher who’s taught everyone from first-graders to Fortune 500 executives. He’s assembled a diverse team of instructors, each with a specific field of expertise, and subspecialists for kids with learning disabilities and autism.
