Manhattan Review's SSAT Online Prep Options

SSAT Online Prep

In today's competitive world of private school admissions, Manhattan Review is here to help ensure your child's application stands out and receives the attention it deserves. The most elite secondary schools continue to place a significant emphasis on SSAT scores, which means your child will need to have a very high SSAT score in order to be accepted at the most prestigious middle and high school programs. While ensuring your child achieves such a high score might seem overwhelming or impossible, the expert instructors at Manhattan Review are here to help. Our comprehensive online prep courses are meticulously designed for prospective private school students, and we know just how to help children excel on this potentially life-changing test.

Manhattan Review's online SSAT courses offer the exact same instruction, homework, practice tests, and resources as our in-person classroom-based courses. At Manhattan Review, we don't believe that an online course should be any less thorough than a course taken in a physical classroom. While some students enjoy learning in a traditional classroom setting, our online course is ideal for students who do not live close to any of our 90 classroom locations or who prefer the flexibility of learning from a remote location.

Experienced Instructors

The instructor a student works with can turn a good preparation course into an unforgettable one. That's why at Manhattan Review, we pride ourselves on hiring instructors who are not just gifted teachers but who have also achieved their own impressive standardized test scores and attended elite universities. These experienced and friendly mentors bring with them a wealth of useful knowledge, including cutting-edge teaching strategies and a genuine commitment to seeing their students succeed.

Online Course or Online Private Tutor – it's your choice

When it comes to online learning, Manhattan Review has your child covered. Whether your child prefers to participate in a virtual prep course with other learners or will benefit from the customization and flexibility of online private tutoring, we know just how to help every learner take their SSAT prep to the next level. 

Many students find online prep courses a fun and motivating way to master new material and prepare for the SSAT. Over the years, we have developed a curriculum that is both comprehensive and engaging, and we cover every aspect of the SSAT through a blend of live instruction, recorded lectures, and proprietary review materials. The online SSAT prep courses offered by Manhattan Review are taught in real-time (meaning they are live). They include an instant messaging feature that allows students to interact directly with their instructor and other classmates. Students can also use an online interactive whiteboard feature to collaboratively complete class problems with their instructor or their peers. With the help of an online polling tool, students can submit answers that can be tracked by the instructor in real time. We work hard to ensure that children who take classes online enjoy as interactive of a learning experience as possible, just without the burden of needing to be driven to a learning location.

It is also worth mentioning that our SSAT instructors teach the exact same course online that they teach in-person. There is no difference in the length or content of the lectures. Just like with courses taught in physical locations, online lectures are available immediately after being presented, allowing students to review the course material whenever they like. Students who participate in online learning receive the exact same sample problems and practice tests as they would if they were attending an in-person prep course. 

When it comes to preparing for the SSAT, we also know that not all students enjoy learning in a group setting. Certain students simply do not master complicated academic information easily in a large group. These students may worry about slowing the group down. Alternatively, they become bored or frustrated when they have mastered a concept but cannot move on until everyone can demonstrate similar mastery. If your child prefers to learn at their own pace, without the distractions sometimes found in group learning, we invite you to consider our customizable SSAT tutoring programs. There is no difference in the information that will be covered through meeting with a tutor virtually rather than in-person. Your child will receive the same unwavering support, the same materials and practice exams, and the same access to their tutor, that they would if they met in-person.

Our SSAT Online Prep Technology

Some parents and caregivers initially express concern about the technology involved in online learning. They worry they might not be able to install the required programs or that these programs are not dependable enough for something as important as SSAT prep. While this might have been a valid concern years ago, technology has become so easy to install and reliably stable that this is not something to be concerned about anymore. We regularly use Zoom at Manhattan Review, which is a popular online teaching platform many students are already familiar with from school and many adults know from work. So, while there were legitimate concerns about online learning technology years ago, this is no longer an issue since systems become increasingly stable and easier to use every year.

The Manhattan Review Difference: Our Instructors

We are proud of the reputation we have developed for our very selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. Since Manhattan Review is a boutique test prep company offering customized SSAT preparation, we have the ability to dedicate more resources than most firms to our hiring process. We expect two things from our instructors: great standardized test scores and a passion for helping students obtain their own high SSAT score through consistent progress and personalized feedback. Ultimately, we only hire those instructors with both superb test-taking and teaching skills, ensuring our students receive the highest quality instruction and are thoroughly prepared to enjoy their own SSAT success. 

We have learned a great deal from our extensive experience in the test prep industry. Specifically, we understand that taking an exam and teaching others how to take it are two separate skills. Our instructors are skilled at tailoring the information they teach to each student's learning style, and the quality of our educators is simply another reason Manhattan Review stands out from other test prep companies. 

To truly understand what makes Manhattan Review so unique, it helps to consider the origins of the firm. Manhattan Review was conceived and started at an Ivy League business school, specifically, Columbia University Business School in New York City. Manhattan Review's Founder was not only pedagogically trained but went on to become a leading academic, eventually accepting a position as a professor at a prestigious business school in Europe. The experience the founder gained by being an active member of collegiate hiring committees, as well as evaluating the teaching potential of countless applicants, cannot be overstated or acquired through other contexts. That is why Manhattan Review's preparation options are widely considered the best choice for serious SSAT students.

Given the highly selective hiring process conducted by Manhattan Review, our instructors are more than capable of teaching all aspects of effective test preparation. This includes administering diagnostic tests, planning the most useful lessons, and guiding students through applicable test content. We strive to make sure each student receives the attention and expertise they deserve when preparing for such an important exam as the SSAT.

Our SSAT Online Prep is highly customizable, and Manhattan Review has many options available to tailor preparation exactly to the student's needs.
