A complementary discussion with the tutor can then be set up to ensure each student is matched with their ideal instructor. Our tutors work closely with students to set realistic, yet ambitious goals and develop an optimal strategy to reach them, which is based on figuring out where each student's strengths and weaknesses lie. Each session is focused on extracting maximum potential from both the student and instructor in the most efficient manner possible.

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

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 very 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 progress. With Manhattan Review being more of a boutique test prep company, we can dedicate more resources to our hiring process and execute a true 360-degree evaluation with only those with both superb test-taking and teaching skills coming on board. Working with a tutor who has both ample teaching experience with standardized tests and and an elite GMAT score gives students the best chance of utilizing their preparation time in the most efficient and effective way possible. From our vast experience in the test prep industry, we have learned that taking an exam and teaching others how to take it are two separate skills and even prefer those candidates who have potentially scored a few points less but have the skill and passion for conveying the necessary information to students in a way that is tailored toward each student's learning style.

To understand what sets Manhattan Review apart from all other test prep companies in this regard, one must review the origins of the firm. Manhattan Review was actually conceived and started at an Ivy League Business School, namely Columbia Business School in New York City. Manhattan Review's Founder was not only pedagogically 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 cannot gain or simulate in another context. That's why Manhattan Review's tutoring options are widely considered the best choice for GMAT students.

Because of 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 make sure 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 one of more of 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 optimal course for each individual student. Then an introductory session is set up where the student has the opportunity to get to know 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 an alternative tutor, this can also be arranged to make sure that there they are satisfied with the teaching style and background of their future tutor.

One important point, these introductory sessions are completely free of charge! We feel that it is Manhattan 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 to each individual 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 discussion about the student's academic background and goals in order to accurately put forth a curriculum that provides both efficiency and solid structure for the time leading up to the exam. The customized lesson plan also accounts for the sequence of content that would be covered during the sessions, which is based on prioritization to optimize the process for each individual student.

The flexible scheduling that comes with private tutoring is perfect for GMAT students who have very little open time in their schedules. 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 upon 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 are available in-person and online

Manhattan Review offers tutoring both in-person in many cities as well as online. While in the past most students have preferred in-person sessions, there is a growing trend towards the online option. For starters, current learning technology makes the experience nearly indistinguishable from an in-person session. The online platform used for tutoring and group courses has a whiteboard, on which both you and your instructor can write in the same fashion you would write on a normal sheet 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 reason why online tutoring is becoming more and more popular. Manhattan Review has a pool of highly qualified tutors who are ready and willing to help students get ready for the GMAT. With in-person tutoring you are naturally limited to those tutors who are located in your proximity, which varies depending on the demand for tutoring there. With the online option, you can draw on a nearly infinite number of highly experienced tutors that could 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 match you with our local tutors for in-person sessions.
