Setting Your Child Up for Academic Success

In today's ultra-competitive world of academia, private school admissions have perhaps never been more difficult—or more important—to obtain. The quality of a child's education, particularly in middle and high school, cannot be underestimated, as where a child attends secondary school will influence where they attend college, which will ultimately affect the career they build and the professional accomplishments they attain. At Manhattan Review, we understand the importance of helping children attend schools with instant name recognition as part of setting them up for future successes and instilling the skills and confidence they will need to be successful in both personal and professional endeavors. 

In order to gain admission to the most selective private schools, your child will need to obtain a very high SSAT score. Fortunately, they do not have to achieve this high score on their own. At Manhattan Review, our SSAT prep courses are carefully designed to prepare students for the SSAT while setting them and their application apart from other hopeful applicants. Given our established legacy of high test score success, our customizable tutoring programs allow learners to take the first step towards being accepted at even the most selective middle or high school programs.

Dedicated, High-Quality Instructors

Manhattan Review is known throughout the test prep industry for its very selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. We only hire those tutors with both superb test-taking and teaching skills. We are fully aware that mastering an exam and teaching others how to master an exam are two very different skills, and we are committed to hiring only those tutors who can teach test-related information in ways that can be personalized to the learning needs of each and every student.

Hiring an SSAT Online Tutor – Advantages & Disadvantages

For many years, Manhattan Review has offered not only in-person preparation courses and tutoring, but also online test prep resources. With the start of the global pandemic in 2019, the world experienced an unprecedented shift towards online learning options. While Manhattan Review will continue to offer in-person tutoring sessions in locations where there is significant demand, we also encourage families to consider the advantages and possible disadvantages of online learning to determine if virtual SSAT preparation is an option that might work for their child. Here are a few advantages to virtual tutoring that are consistently shared with us by our online students and their parents:

More time to study

Travelling to a physical location can be time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive. Many parents are thrilled to avoid wasted travel time in favor of giving their child additional time to focus on what matters most: prepping for the SSAT. With our online tutoring options, your child can study in the comfort and convenience of their own home. This is particularly ideal for children who already have a long commute to school or spend hours in a car going back and forth between sports, extracurricular activities, or other important commitments. Given the experience and support of our unparalleled tutors, the online tutoring programs at Manhattan Review make it easy for your child to prepare for the SSAT while saving time and reducing unnecessary travel-related expenses and stress.

Increased flexibility

Children lead increasingly busy lives, balancing school, extracurricular activities, spending time with family and friends, as well as additional hobbies or commitments. Preparing for the SSAT by trying to fit another in-person commitment into your child's schedule can be difficult and sometimes simply impossible. With Manhattan Review's online tutoring options, you can take charge of your child's test preparation by arranging tutoring when it's most convenient for them. Sessions can be scheduled with a tutor when it works best for your family, allowing your child to stay on track with their test preparation. Tutors are easily reachable between sessions via email, and your child is always welcome to ask questions or seek clarification on assigned materials or practice problems. Our online private tutoring packages are a perfect fit for busy students who are still serious about attaining an elite SSAT score and attending a leading private middle or high school.

With Manhattan Review's online learning options, your child can prepare for the SSAT at times that work for them. Students learn best when they are able to focus without distraction, and we are proud to offer online tutoring options to ensure your child is thoroughly prepared to obtain the highest test score possible. 

While there is much to like about online tutoring options, there may also be some potential disadvantages that are worth considering. These are some of the concerns that potential students and parents mention to us:

Lack of Social Interaction

There is something both comforting and familiar about in-person interaction, especially for children. It can be a very enjoyable experience to sit across from someone who is invested in your learning and to share space with a tutor giving you their undivided attention. We understand that this desirable feeling and style of interaction can be difficult to replicate online.

Having said that, children are often more comfortable than adults at utilizing technology to interact with others. Given this, it is very easy for your child and their tutor to get to know one another within the context of a virtual environment. Your child and their tutor can write on a shareable whiteboard just as they would both write on a piece of paper in a physical location. 

With Manhattan Review's online private tutoring options, you also have the freedom to choose the tutor who works best for your child's specific prep needs regardless of where they happen to be located, which will only improve your child's SSAT performance and result in a higher score on the day of their exam.

Dependance on Technology

Many families express concern that they will not be able to install the required software to participate in an online tutoring program. While this was an important concern years ago, technology has become so stable and easy to install that this is no longer a concern anymore. At Manhattan Review we use Zoom, a popular online teaching platform many children are already familiar with from school and adults know from work. So, while there were legitimate concerns about online learning technology years ago, this is no longer an issue as systems become increasingly stable every year. You can help your child prepare for the SSAT using our online tutoring options anywhere you have a stable internet connection, and our tutors are eager to support your child in attaining their own impressive test score, certain to open important academic doors.

The SSAT Tutoring Process is highly customizable, and Manhattan Review has many options available to tailor preparation exactly to the student's needs. Therefore, the best way to proceed is to speak to one of our friendly and highly regarded SSAT specialists. Requesting an appointment is easy: please simply fill out the SSAT Prep Consultation Request Form, and we will be in touch right away. And yes, this in-depth consultation is completely free, so get your prep started today!

What Sets Manhattan Review Apart: Gifted and Talented Tutors

Manhattan Review is a boutique test prep company, which means we have the ability to dedicate more resources to our hiring process than most test prep firms. Because of this, we are able to execute a true 360-degree evaluation of potential tutors, ultimately hiring only those with both superb test-taking and teaching skills. 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. While we expect high test scores from our potential instructors, high scores alone are no guarantee of being hired. Our instructors are skilled at tailoring the information they teach to each student's learning style, and the quality of our instructors is simply another reason Manhattan Review continues to stand 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.
