GMAT Private Tutoring with Manhattan Review

GMAT Private Tutors

A GMAT Private Tutor is the fully customizable prep option

Students seeking a uniquely personalized approach to their GMAT preparation should look to Manhattan Review to make use of the best private tutoring options available. Manhattan Review's GMAT private tutoring program can be utilized either by itself as a primary option, or in combination with our comprehensive GMAT group courses. Students are offered a choice of tutors to determine who best fits their individual needs and learning style. After selecting a potential tutor, a complementary discussion can then be set up to ensure the student is matched with their ideal instructor. Our tutors work closely with students to set realistic, yet ambitious, goals, in addition to developing an optimal strategy to reach those goals. This is accomplished by identifying each student's academic strengths and weaknesses. Each session is focused on extracting the maximum potential from both the student and instructor in the most streamlined manner possible. Key test-taking techniques and fundamental building blocks are covered in-depth throughout the program, ensuring students are well-equipped to achieve the high percentile scores required for the most competitive MBA programs.

Our highly experienced GMAT tutors will work closely with each student to create and carry out an individualized lesson plan based specifically on that student's learning style, test-taking needs, and GMAT goals. Tutoring sessions can be held in-person or online depending on student preference and tutor availability. If a student opts for the in-person sessions, they can meet with their tutor at any mutually convenient location in the area, provided the commute is acceptable to both parties. Students who choose online tutoring have the advantage of participating in their sessions from the comfort of their own home or anywhere with a stable internet connection. This offers increased flexibility in scheduling while avoiding any time lost due to traffic or unexpected travel-related difficulties.

Tutoring with or without a group course – it's your choice!

While group prep courses provide structured study time through the introduction of new topics each week, supplementing group learning with private tutoring can lead to optimal preparation. The flexible scheduling and personalized lesson planning offered by our private tutoring packages can help students significantly improve on any weak areas, resulting in a higher score and a more well-rounded performance on the day of the exam.

No matter where you are in the process of preparing for the GMAT, Manhattan Review has a tutoring package that is just right for you. Our instructors devote the initial tutoring session with a student to assessing strengths and weaknesses and outlining a customized lesson plan based upon the student's needs and expectations. The lesson plan is highly flexible, and it is always updated and altered depending on how the student is responding to the content. Manhattan Review's GMAT private tutoring option is quickly becoming the preferred method of preparation for students due largely to the motivation and commitment our tutors show to each Manhattan Review client. We recommend that students enroll in a tutoring package as early as possible to secure their spot in a desired tutor's schedule. The sooner a student selects a test preparation option, the sooner their tutor can start the process of collaboratively creating a personalized curriculum.

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

Highly Selective Pool of GMAT Instructors

Manhattan Review is highly regarded for its very selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. We not only expect great scores from our instructors, but we also expect a passion for helping their students improve and progress. Manhattan Review prides itself on being a boutique test prep company, which means we can dedicate more resources than most firms to our hiring process. This allows us to complete a full 360-degree evaluation of each candidate, ensuring we ultimately hire only those educators with both superb test-taking and teaching skills. Working with a tutor who has both strong experience teaching standardized tests and an elite GMAT score gives students the best chance of utilizing their preparation time to obtain the highest score possible. From our vast experience in the test prep industry, we have learned that taking an exam and teaching others how to take an exam are two separate skills. If a potential tutor has achieved their own very high GMAT score yet cannot effectively and enthusiastically teach students to master test content, they are not a good fit for our company and will not be hired. We are dedicated to hiring only those instructors who convey test-related information in ways that are tailored to each student's particular learning style. 

To understand what sets Manhattan Review apart from all other test prep companies in this regard, it is helpful to consider the origins of the firm. Manhattan Review was conceptualized and started at an Ivy League business school, namely, Columbia Business School in New York City. In addition to being pedagogically trained, Manhattan Review's founder went on to become an established academic, eventually accepting a position as a professor at a prestigious European business school. The rigors of academia, including serving on hiring committees and learning to evaluate the teaching potential of impressive applicants, resulted in important experiences that shaped the founder's vision of Manhattan Review. A commitment to unparalleled test preparation through the use of cutting-edge educational techniques explains why Manhattan Review's tutoring options are broadly and consistently considered the best choice for GMAT students.

Because of the highly selective hiring process carried out by Manhattan Review, our instructors are well-rounded individuals capable of teaching all areas of test preparation. This involves effectively preparing a student for the GMAT through diagnostic tests, intentional lesson planning, and use of varied, research-supported teaching methods. We aim to make sure each student receives the personalized attention and comprehensive 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 one or more of our services, what follows is a simple two-part process. First, all prospective students speak with an academic advisor, giving the student the opportunity to provide background information on any GMAT prep they've already done, as well as their timeline and study goals. Academic advisors are trained to help each student find the optimal course or tutor for their unique test-prep needs. If the student selects a private tutoring program, the academic advisor pairs them with a tutor. An introductory meeting between the student and their potential tutor is then arranged, allowing the student the chance to get to know who they might be working with. More often than not, the student is matched with their ideal tutor, due to the extensive experience of our academic advisors. If, however, the student feels the need to speak with an alternative tutor, this can also be arranged. We are committed to making sure every student is satisfied with the teaching style and background of their future tutor.

It's also important to highlight that speaking with an academic advisor and meeting with a potential tutor are introductory sessions that are completely free of charge! At Manhattan Review, we believe it is our duty to demonstrate the value that we can create for you before asking you to pay for any of our services.

GMAT Tutoring Sessions: Flexibility and Customization

Our private tutoring programs are created to be customized to each individual student. With our tutors having years of experience assessing student needs and creating personalized lesson plans, students can be confident that they are enrolling in a program that places them and their improvement as the highest priority. Tutors use many factors when personalizing our curricula to a particular student's needs, including discussions of the student's academic background, diagnostic tests, and practice questions. When a program of study has been organized just for you, you are able to learn in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Our customized lesson plans allow students to prioritize their GMAT needs, and our tutors are experts at optimizing the learning process for each individual student.

Private tutoring programs offer flexible scheduling that is perfect for GMAT students who have very little free time in their schedules. Your tutor will assign you work to complete outside of your scheduled sessions, and doing these assignments is critical to the preparation process. Manhattan Review regularly updates our curriculum in order to ensure we are using the most current teaching methods and providing the most cutting-edge preparation processes available to motivated learners. Our commitment to test prep perfection is why we remain the leader in the instructional industry, a position we have proudly held since being founded in 1999.

GMAT Tutors are available in-person and online

Manhattan Review offers in-person tutoring in a multitude of cities, as well as online. In the past, students have historically preferred in-person tutoring sessions, but there has been a dramatic shift in this over the last few years, with an increasing number of students now choosing an online GMAT preparation option. This shift can be explained by considering a few important factors. To begin with, current learning technology makes an online learning experience nearly indistinguishable from an in-person session. The online platform used for both tutoring and group courses includes a whiteboard, which both you and your instructor can write on just as if you were both writing on the same piece of paper. The video aspect of our online learning system allows you and your tutor to see each other in real time, which creates a very personal experience indistinguishable from the one you would receive while completing in-person sessions. But the other reason online learning has become so popular is due to the fact that Manhattan Review's world-class tutors are available to work remotely with students anywhere in the world. 

With in-person tutoring, you are limited to those tutors who are located in your area, which varies greatly depending on the demand for tutoring there. With an online tutoring option, you can draw on the skills of highly experienced tutors located anywhere in the world, giving you the chance to work with a passionate educator who perfectly fits your study goals and learning style. Regardless of whether you choose to take advantage of remote test prep options or prefer working with a tutor in-person, Manhattan Review has all your GMAT prep needs covered. Our academic advisors are happy to discuss the best tutoring program for you and will assist you in connecting with just the right virtual or in-person instructor.
