Here are some of the highlights of working with Manhattan Review GMAT Tutors:

Highly Selective Pool of GMAT Instructors

Manhattan Review is best-known for its highly selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. We not only expect great scores from our instructors, but also, and more importantly, a passion for helping their students improve and achieve their target scores. When hiring tutors, Manhattan Review does a true 360-degree evaluation with only those with both superb test-taking and teaching skills coming on board. The combination of scoring highly on the exam and having ample teaching experience in the test prep industry is the recipe Manhattan Review searches out in order to ensure each student receives the necessary attention they deserve from an expert on both the GMAT and the process of preparing students with a wide variety of strengths and weaknesses. From our vast experience in the test prep industry, we have learned that taking an exam and teaching others the content are two different skills and even prefer those candidates who have potentially scored a couple points less but have the skill and passion for conveying the necessary information to students in a way that is effective and efficient.

To understand what sets Manhattan Review apart from all other test prep companies in this regard, one must take a look at the origins of the firm. Manhattan Review was actually conceived and founded at an Ivy League Business School, namely Columbia Business School in New York City. Manhattan Review's Founder was not only pedagocically trained but went on to become an academic and eventually a Professor at a prestigious Business School in Europe. Having participated in countless hiring committees for academics and having to judge teaching potential of applicants is experience that you simply can not gain or simulate in another context. That is the reason Manhattan Review Tutoring options are widely considered the best choice for GMAT students.

Due to the highly selective hiring process carried out by Manhattan Review, our instructors are capable of teaching all areas that are involved in effectively preparing a student for the GMAT including lesson planning, teaching methods and diagnostic tests. We want to ensure that each student gets the attention and expertise they deserve when preparing for such an important exam.

The proven Manhattan Review Process makes the difference

Once a student has expressed interest in our services, there is a two stage process that follows. First, all prospective students talk to an academic advisor where the student gives some background on their situation, time line and study goals. Academic advisors are trained to find the best fit for each student and their individual needs and study preferences. Then an introductory session is set up where the student has the opportunity to speak directly with their potential tutor. Most often, this is a perfect match thanks to the experience of our Academic Advisors. If the students feels the need to speak to another tutor, this can also be arranged to make sure that there is a perfect fit between the expectations of the student and the skills of the tutor.

One important point, these introductory sessions are completely free of charge! We believe that it is Manahattan Review's duty to show the value that we can create for you before asking you to pay for anything.

GMAT Tutoring Sessions: Flexibility and Customization

Our private tutoring programs are designed to be customized in order to fit the expectations of each student. With our tutors having ample experience assessing student needs and creating personalized lesson plans, students are enrolling in a program that has them and their improvement as the highest priority. Tutors use a combination of diagnostic tests, practice questions and in-depth conversation about the student’s academic background and goals in order to accurately put forth a lesson plan that provides both efficiency and solid structure for the precious time leading up to the exam. The customized lesson plan also includes the sequence of content that will be covered during the sessions, which is based on prioritization to optimize the process for each individual student.

The flexible scheduling offered by our private tutoring options is perfect for those GMAT students who have a full schedule or are often traveling. Having your tutor hold you accountable for the agreed upon assignments outside of the sessions serves as a great motivating factor, which is critical to the preparation process. Manhattan Review continues to work on and improve the curriculum, teaching methods and preparation process used for private tutoring students in order to stay ahead of the pack, as we have since being founded in 1999.

GMAT Tutors available in-person and online

Manhattan Review offers tutoring both in-person in your city as well as online. While in the past most students preferred in-person sessions, there is a growing trend towards the online option. For starters, learning technology these days creates an environment that is nearly indistinguishable from an in-person session. Our online platform has a whiteboard, on which both you and your tutor can write in the same fashion you would on a normal piece of paper in front of you. The video aspect, which allows you and the tutor to see each other in real time, creates a very personal experience, such as the one you would get while doing in-person sessions. But there is one other critical reason why online tutoring is getting more and more popular. Manhattan Review has a large number of qualified tutors, and with the online option we might just be able to provide you with a better match towards your learning style. With in-person tutoring you are naturally limited to those tutors who are located in your proximity. Depending on how much demand for test preparation exists in your location, there might be a limited amount of tutors available. With the online option, you have the ability choose from a nearly infinite number of top tutors that can be located anywhere in the world, giving you the chance to work with a passionate educator who perfectly fits your study and learning style. While there is a growing trend towards online learning and considering the aforementioned points, Manhattan Review has you covered in any case, and we are equally happy to pair you with our expert local tutors for in-person sessions.
