About David Hoffman
In The Classroom
I bring 35 years of classroom experience in many of New Jersey’s top public and private high schools including Columbia High School, Madison High School, Newark Academy, and Kushner Academy. I've taught courses from pre-algebra through calculus to the most confident and the most unsure learners with a recognized specialty in geometry. I am familiar with conceptual based learning models and modern common core curricula.
As A Private Tutor
For over 30 years, I have been coaching students through college entrance exams, including SAT, ACT, AP, and GED tests. I have designed test prep materials for Pingry, Clarion Review, Creative Dimensions, and Instructivision. Co-authored SAT Math Excellerator published by Instructivision in 2012. As my students age, I am helping them prepare for General and Subject Praxis, GRE, and GMAT testing.
As A Professional Curriculum Consultant
I am a frequent presenter at math conferences sponsored by AMTNJ and NJEA, and have designed training programs for teacher development used by Union City Public Schools and other underserved school districts.
