TOEFL Tutoring with Manhattan Review TOEFL Tutors

TOEFL Tutoring with a structured approach

Manhattan Review prides itself on its own, well-developed strategy on how to effectively help TOEFL students through private tutoring. This process has been developed and improved since the company's founding in 1999 and has provided thousands of students with the tips and tricks to score highly on the TOEFL and use their scores for higher education or a future career in an English speaking country. So how is Manhattan Review different from the other TOEFL prep companies on the market? We closely follow the timeless management process: gather data, plan, execute and monitor. While this may sound like a strategy every test prep company utilizes, you will find that a large number of TOEFL tutors come into sessions and teach the exact same lesson plan to all of their students and do not take the time to develop a personalized path forward for each one. The content and sequence are determined spontaneously rather than following a plan that was created with the student before starting sessions. In contrast, the lessons with Manhattan Review's private tutors follow are clearly defined and agreed upon with the student in order to create a unique, individualized experience, which leads to higher confidence with the language, better scores and just overall more motivation to master the TOEFL.

After completing an initial TOEFL Prep Consultation, during which students will speak with one of our expert advisors who lead a discussion on your expectations, experience with the language and academic background, they are then connected with one of our highly trained and experienced tutors whose teaching style and profile matches the student's individual needs and expectations. The first step our tutors take is to work closely with students to create realistic, yet ambitious goals and develop a unique strategy to reach them, which is based on identifying and reviewing any aspects of the TOEFL and English language that are seen as challenging for students and equally importantly figuring out the sequence in which the topics should be covered in order to efficiently and smoothly transition as the student masters the topis. The result of the planning process is a comprehensive schedule of the sessions and topics that will be reviewed during each one. Again, this is the complete opposite to the unstructured approach used by many other test prep companies, who often sell this as being flexible on each topic during the sessions and willing to change things up on the fly. Our tutoring sessions aim to get the most out of both the student and instructor in the most efficient manner possible. With both critical test taking techniques and fundamental aspects of the English language being covered in an order that matches the student's needs during the tutoring program, they are well-equipped to achieve those high score required for higher education, careers or simply life in an English-speaking country.

Manhattan Review TOEFL Tutors – more than just experts on the English language and TOEFL

Manhattan Review is best-known for its very selective hiring process of instructors and tutors. We not only expect top scores and knowledge of the TOEFL from our tutors, but also, and much more critical, a passion for helping their students improve their language and test taking skills throughout the tutoring program. When hiring tutors, Manhattan Review does a true 360-degree evaluation with the ones being hired having both extensive knowledge regarding all aspects of the English language, but also top-notch teaching and communication skills. The combination of scoring highly on the TOEFL and having ample experience teaching ESL students with various strengths and weaknesses is the combination Manhattan Review seeks out in order to ensure that every student receives the necessary attention they deserve from an expert on both the TOEFL and the process of preparing TOEFL test takers with a variety of goals, whether they be academic or career oriented. From our vast experience in the test prep industry, we have learned that the ability to successfully take an exam and the skill of efficiently and effectively conveying that information to someone looking to take the TOEFL are very different sets and would even go as far to say that we prefer to work with those candidates who have maybe scored a couple of points less but have the skill and passion for teaching the necessary information to students in a way that is both enjoyable and highly beneficial to the preparation process.

Manhattan Review has extensive experience in the test prep industry and if you would like to know what makes us different, one must take a look at how the firm was founded. The origins of Manhattan Review can be traced back to Columbia Business School in New York City by a person who was actually teaching courses there. Manhattan Review's founder was not only pedagogically trained at Columbia University but became a successful professor at a highly rated graduate school in Europe. Having participated in many hiring committees for academics and being involved in assessing teaching potential of applicants for positions in higher education is experience that you simply cannot accumulate or simulate in any other way. That's why Manhattan Review tutoring is the most popular choice for TOEFL students looking to not only improve their scores, but also their grasp of the language, which will serve them well in future academic and professional endeavors.

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

TOEFL Tutoring Sessions: schedule sessions flexibly

Our private tutoring programs are designed to be customized in order to reach the goals of each specific student. With our tutors having a proven track record of assessing student needs and developing unique study plans, students are taking part in a program that has them and their improvement as the highest priority. Our TOEFL tutors use many tools in order to create unique and accurate lesson plan, which provides sound structure and maximum retention to the preparation time leading up to the TOEFL. By utilizing practice tests, various practice questions on specific sections and having detailed discussions about the student's experience with the language, tutors give their students the best chance to score highly on the TOEFL. The customized lesson plan also lay out the order in which the content would be covered during the sessions, which is based on prioritization to optimize the process for each individual student depending on their strengths and weaknesses.

The flexible scheduling offered by our private tutoring packages is made for those TOEFL students who are working or studying full time and have a tight window for their study sessions. Even if you are having sessions less frequently, your tutor will be sure to hold you accountable for the work you agreed to do through email or text, which serves as a great motivating factor for the TOEFL preparation time. Manhattan Review continues to develop and improve upon the curriculum, teaching methods and preparation process that is used by our tutors in order to stay one step ahead of the competition, as we have since being founded in 1999.

TOEFL Tutors: online and in-person in your area

Manhattan review can offer its tutoring programs online, in-person in certain cities, or a combination of both. In-person sessions were the popular form of preparation in past times, but in the last few years there has been a growing trend toward online learning as students began to notice the advantages. The first advantage would be that current learning technology makes the online sessions feel nearly identical to the in-person ones. The online platform used for tutoring sessions has all the tools necessary including a whiteboard, on which both you and your tutor can write just like you would on a piece of paper on a desk in front of you. Live video, which allows you and the tutor to see each other in real time during the sessions, creates a more personal experience, such as the one you would get while carrying out in-person sessions. The other, and perhaps most critical reason that students have moved toward online tutoring is the flexibility when choosing a tutor. Manhattan Review has a large pool of highly qualified TOEFL tutors who are excited to work with students in any time zone as the online option gives students the ability to have even more flexible scheduling because of the time saved with no travelling. With in-person tutoring you are naturally limited to those tutors who live in your city, which is affected by the amount of students there who are looking for tutoring, whereas online tutoring opens you up to having the choice between a variety of backgrounds and teaching styles to make sure you have someone who understands your specific needs when it comes to both the English language and TOEFL. While student preference has shifted almost exclusively towards online learning and considering the arguments brought up in this text, Manhattan Review has you covered no matter your preference, and we are just as happy to match you with our highly experienced local tutors for in-person sessions.
