Some of our former students work for Fortune 500 companies, and others have started their own businesses. We've also helped people begin public sector careers as educators, researchers, and government officials. Whatever field you plan to establish yourself in, every career starts with attending a college or university, and in order to be accepted to top-tier institutions of higher education, you must obtain an SAT score that will make you stand out from the multitude of other applicants. Here at Manhattan Review, we are committed to helping you, your child, or a loved one achieve and enjoy collegiate success.

Manhattan Review's SAT prep courses are available both on-site and through online interactive formats, making attending our courses as easy as possible for busy students. We have years of experience preparing clients from a variety of backgrounds to excel on the SAT, and we encourage you to take advantage of our knowledge. We've developed an intimate understanding of the best test prep techniques that have been shown to work and packaged them into a course that maximizes efficiency of effort on the part of our students. We are deeply familiar with industry-leading test prep strategies, and we are always on top of the latest evidence-based practices in teaching material associated with the SAT. Even though the SAT has been revised a number of times in recent years, we remain fully aware of these changes, incorporating them into our prep courses, retaining what is most effective and updating what can be made even better. The result is the perfect marriage of cutting-edge didactic methods and time-honored pedagogical tradition. Manhattan Review's SAT prep classes give our students a firm understanding of how the test itself is designed, how to approach each section, and how to make the most of available study time. This consistently produces outstanding results among those students who dedicated a reasonable amount of time and effort to preparing for this important exam.

Best-in-class SAT Course Instructors and Tutors

Manhattan Review's SAT instructors undergo a rigorous screening as part of the hiring process. While other test prep companies care only about how well a prospective instructor did on the SAT himself or herself, for us, a potential instructor's SAT score is only a starting point. When making a hiring decision, we take a holistic approach and look at many important factors, including a person's overall record of academic accomplishment, professional success, passion for teaching, and unique personal background. Many of our SAT teachers are graduates of Ivy League schools, but we also realize that the most selective institutions do not have a monopoly on talent. Our tutors have distinguished themselves in many different professions and are happy to offer fresh perspectives when teaching the SAT prep material. They truly enjoy contributing to the success of others and are dedicated to their mission as educators. They also live active lives outside of work, with hobbies and interests that make them accessible to their students, further enhancing the teaching process. Some of our best instructors initially started out as clients, and after seeing the success they could obtain through working with Manhattan Review, they were eager to become a part of a team dedicated to furthering the dreams and goals of future students and leaders of tomorrow.

Manhattan Review History

The seeds of Manhattan Review were planted at Columbia Business School in 1999. Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at that institution, earned a reputation for explaining advanced and complex subjects in an accessible and easily understandable manner while giving lectures to MBAs. Several of these students thought that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to preparing for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and they challenged him to come up with a method of GMAT prep that was better than their own time-consuming and ultimately unproductive experiences. Meissner responded by creating original GMAT lectures that covered GMAT material using an efficient and simplified approach. Students quickly agreed that this approach was far superior to the memorization and "tricks" offered by other GMAT prep companies.

In the years since, Manhattan Review has grown into an international educational services firm, with branches in major North American, European, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, SAT, and TOEFL, in addition to admissions consulting and application advisory services. Test prep for international applicants to universities in the English-speaking world has become one of our specialties, and a large percentage of our student population lives outside of the United States. We offer our test prep clients encyclopedic knowledge of American higher education and American standardized testing, as well as thorough familiarity with the educational communities and specialized student needs of every metropolitan area we serve.

Gaining admission to an established and respected four-year university is challenging, and students are being encouraged to prepare for the college application process earlier and earlier. We routinely hear from our clients that college admission requirements are becoming increasingly complex, with more supplemental materials being requested and standardized test scores being given more importance than ever. While doing well on the SAT requires effort, dedication, and a willingness to learn, this test can be mastered, and we are here to help you score in the highest percentiles. Don't waste your time attempting to create your own SAT study program…join the thousands of students who found their own individual SAT success by partnering with Manhattan Review.
