Best ISEE Instructors in South Africa

We take on only the best at Manhattan Review. Naturally, we want instructors who have attained high test scores (generally in the top 1%), but high scores in and of themselves are not enough. Some test prep companies in Cape Town hire on exam performance alone, but at Manhattan Review, we delve much deeper into a potential teacher. We want to know a great deal about a prospective teacher's academic achievements and background. Where did she go to university? In what subject did she major? What was her GPA? These are only a handful of the questions we ask in the hiring process. We also consider former teaching experience, and we only hire individuals who have meaningful prior teaching profiles. Our classroom instructors and individual tutors are highly distinguished graduates of the most esteemed universities in the English-speaking world. Furthermore, they possess subject-matter expertise in a variety of different academic disciplines. Finally, we choose instructors with personalities and outside interests that make them well-suited for test prep instruction, particularly in the areas of classroom presence approachability and approachability. All educators, teachers, and tutors are comprehensively trained in Manhattan Review's unique methods and materials. We believe our highly selective hiring process produces educators of rare ability to meet and exceed the requirements of our Cape Town and Johannesburg student population when it comes to test preparation.

History of Manhattan Review

Manhattan Review began in New York City in 1999 by Joern Meissner, who at the time was a venerated doctoral student and educator at Columbia Business School. Meissner received consistent praise from his students for his practical explanations of complex ideas. As a result, a group of these students thought that his style of instruction would be ideal for Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) preparation, as in those days GMAT prep was boring and mundane. Meissner went on to devise a series of GMAT lectures that incorporated his trademark method of teaching. Early returns were remarkably positive, and these lectures would become the early foundations of Manhattan Review's first test prep classes.

Manhattan Review has since broadened into the world's premier global test prep company, with offices not just in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and throughout South Africa, but in cities all over the world providing services for all of the major standardized university admission exams. Manhattan Review has aided thousands of students in preparing for acceptance to the universities of their choice by enhancing their ISEE, ACT, SAT, SSAT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, TOEFL, and/or IELTS scores. We've also published a variety of distinguished test prep textbooks, assisted business professionals enhance their language skills, and strengthened university applications with our top-notch admissions consulting offerings. We aim to integrate the resources of an international company with the customized service of a local firm, meaningfully serving the educational needs of the London community in which we teach.
