Manhattan Review's SAT prep courses, available in both on-site and online interactive formats, prepare students from a wide variety of backgrounds to excel on the exam. We've developed an intricate and thorough understanding of the test prep techniques that have been shown to work, combining them together into a rigorous course that maximizes efficiency for improved results. We're familiar with the most current modes of thought on teaching and learning the material associated with the SAT, and also kept the best strategies from earlier versions of the exam, which has since been revised a number of times in recent years. The result is the perfect marriage of innovative strategies and skillful techniques. Manhattan Review's SAT prep courses give our students in London and the U.K. a solid understanding of how the test itself is architected, how to approach each section, and how to make the most of study time. We believe this gives way to outstanding results, within a reasonable amount of time and effort.
Manhattan Review's SAT instructors are hired through a thorough screening process unlike that of our competitors. While other test prep companies in London care only about a prospective instructor's SAT score, we believe that's merely a starting point. At Manhattan Review we also look for academic achievement, professional success, a zeal for teaching, as well as interesting personal backgrounds when making our hiring decisions. Many of our SAT instructors are graduates of prestigious schools, be it the London School of Economics, Cambridge University, Harvard, Stanford and others across the globe. We realize that the most selective universities do not have a monopoly on talent, as our tutors have established themselves in many different professions and can thus offer fresh perspectives on teaching the SAT material. They are beyond high scorers, they are beyond their intellect; our teachers are of truly high quality. They enjoy contributing to the success of others and are dedicated to their mission as educators. Our instructors and tutors also live active lives outside of work, with hobbies and interests that make them accessible to their students, further enhancing the teaching and learning process.
The initial seeds of Manhattan Review were planted at Columbia Business School in 1999 when Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at that institution, earned a wide-reaching reputation for explaining advanced and complex MBA subjects in an accessible and easily understood manner. A handful of these students encouraged Meissner to come up with a method of Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) prep that was better than their own lackluster to experiences. Meissner eagerly responded by creating original GMAT lectures that covered GMAT material using an skillful and streamlined approach. Students quickly agreed that Meissner's techniques were far superior to the memorization and "tricks" offered by other GMAT prep companies.
In the years since its inception, Manhattan Review has blossomed into an international educational services firm, with branches not just in London, New York and across the U.K., but throughout a variety of Europe, North American, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, TOEFL, and IELTS, in addition to first-rate admissions consulting and top-tier application advisory services. Test prep for international applicants to universities in the English-speaking world has become one of our specialties, as a large percentage of our student population live outside he U.K. and the United States. We offer our test prep clients encyclopedic knowledge of higher education and standardized testing. In addition, we are very familiar with the educational communities and specialized student needs of every metropolitan area we serve, not just in London, Manchester, Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow, but also throughout the world.
