Manhattan Review SSAT Prep Home
Manhattan Review is a global leader in test prep services for the SSAT and other undergraduate or graduate university admission exams. Our instruction has helped thousands of students in Singapore and all over the world improve their SSAT skillset, increase their SSAT scores, and expand their opportunities for higher education. Manhattan Review's SSAT prep curriculum has eased acceptance to the best universities in Singapore, The United States, The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several other countries. Many of our former test prep students are now established professionals with successful careers, working in companies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and DBS Bank, just to name a handful. While we don't mind bragging about our past, we are much more focused on the achievements of today's test-takers and forever looking toward the future of innovative test prep teaching and learning.
Because our students have a variety of distinct learning requirements, Manhattan Review's SSAT instruction comes in several formats, including on-site group courses, one-on-one tutoring, as well as remote study via online interactive technology for students who prefer to study digitally. We also provide SSAT practice tests that duplicate the structure, timing, and content of the real exam to aid in familiarity and implementation of strategy. At Manhattan Review, we realize that student engagement is number one to effective learning, and our instruction, therefore, focuses on the development of higher order thinking and analytical abilities. Singapore and South Asian pupils who complete our SSAT courses become better all-around students who are more prepared to succeed in all of their subsequent academic endeavors. Manhattan Review's test prep instruction features original and innovative teaching methods based on cutting-edge educational research. We are also known for the top-notch quality of our course materials. No matter where you live, there is probably a Manhattan Review branch near you (we operate in numerous major cities in Singapore, Asia, Americas, Europe, Africa, and Australia). We are Singapore and Southeast Asia's most outstanding provider of professional SSAT preparation services, which will help you make great leaps and bounds in your SSAT performance at a reasonable cost of time, money, and effort.
It takes a special person to become a Manhattan Review test prep instructor. Clearly, we want people who have received high test scores (typically in the top 1%), but high scores alone are simply not sufficient. Some test prep companies hire on this basis alone, but at Manhattan Review, we go much deeper. We want to know a great deal about a prospective teacher's academic credentials. Where did he or she attend university? In what subject did they major? What was their GPA? These are only some of the questions we ask of potential instructors. Our Singapore classroom teachers and individual tutors are distinguished graduates of the most highly ranked prestigious universities in the English-speaking world, and they possess subject-matter expertise in many different academic disciplines. We also greatly consider previous teaching experience, and we only hire people who have substantial prior teaching resumes. Finally, we select individuals with personalities and outside interests that make them well-suited for test prep instruction, especially in the areas of approachability and classroom presence. Additionally, all new hires are comprehensively trained in Manhattan Review's particular methods and materials. Our highly selective hiring process produces test prep educators of rare ability to meet and excel the needs of our students in Singapore and throughout Asia.
The seeds of Manhattan Review were planted in New York City in 1999 by Joern Meissner, who was then a doctoral student and instructor at Columbia Business School. Meissner was frequently praised by students for his accessible explanations of complex ideas, and a group of thought that his style of instruction would be ideal for Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) preparation, which at the time left a lot to be desired. In response, Meissner created a series of GMAT lectures that used his trademark method of teaching. Early returns were highly positive, and these lectures would become the basis of Manhattan Review's first test prep courses.
Manhattan Review has since expanded into the world's leading international test prep company, with offices in cities in Singapore and around the world offering services for all of the major standardized university admission tests. Our company has helped countless students prepare for acceptance to the universities of their choice by improving their SSAT, SAT, ACT, ISEE, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, TOEFL, and/or IELTS scores. We've also published a number of test prep textbooks, assisted business professionals improve their language skills, and enhanced university applications with our admissions consulting services. At Manhattan Review, we strive to combine the resources of a global company with the personalized service of a local firm, effectively serving the educational needs of the Singapore and South Asian community.
Joern Meissner is an internationally distinguished business school professor with a Diploma in Business Management at the University of Hamburg and a PhD in Management Science at Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the top Ivy League Schools. After finishing his doctoral degree, he chose the career trajectory of an academic and has now more than 25 years of experience as a postsecondary educator. His passion for teaching is evident, and he has taught business courses at the University of Hamburg, Lancaster University Management School, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management, and the University of Mannheim. Meissner's research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been published in several well-known and respected academic journals. While Professor Meissner thoroughly enjoys his research, he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun; conveying knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was vital to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most cherished principle today.
