Manhattan Review's LSAT educators are hired through a comprehensive, rigorous, and highly thorough screening process. Other test prep companies throughout Cape Town and elsewhere might simply just put a focus on a prospective instructor's test scores; however, for us, exam scores are only the starting point. In our instructors we also seek true academic accomplishment, professional success, a contagious passion for teaching, and diverse personal backgrounds. We pride ourselves in retaining well-rounded and accomplished LSAT teachers in the Cape Town, Johannesburg, South Africa, and beyond.
Many of our LSAT instructors are graduates of respected schools such as Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics, Stanford, and Harvard, just to name a handful. However, we also realize that the most discriminating institutions do not have a monopoly on talent. Our tutors have distinguished themselves in many different regards, in many different arenas and can provide fresh perspectives on how to approach the exam with their own LSAT experience, in addition to our detailed course outline. At Manhattan Review, we cherish instructors with a sharp eye for precision with a nuanced personal experience of the test.
Our tutors truly relish contributing to your academic success in conjunction with your test-taking skills. They are well aware taking the LSAT exam is for determined and hardworking people, and aiding South African students in that journey is highly rewarding and gratifying. In addition to their academic expertise, our educators also have active and fulfilling lives outside of work, with a wide range of hobbies and interests that make them accessible, well-rounded and amiable. At Manhattan Review, our teachers are more than just a high test score; they're truly an inspiration.
Manhattan Review began at Columbia Business School in 1999 when Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at the university, earned a reputation for deconstructing complex and advanced subjects in an accessible manner while giving lectures to MBA students. Some of these students thought that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to delivering exam preparation for graduate school admissions tests such as the LSAT. They challenged him to devise a method of prep that was better than their own lackluster and unproductive experiences. Meissner responded by devising original lectures that spanned LSAT, GRE, and GMAT material from a different yet concise and streamlined perspective. Students recognized that his perspective was far superior to the routine memorization and dull tricks offered by other prep companies at the time.
Since then, Manhattan Review has developed into a highly respected global educational services company, with branches not just in Cape Town, but all across South Africa and in major European, North American, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep classes and private tutoring for the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, and IELTS, as well as admissions consulting and application services. We provide our students in-depth knowledge of higher education and standardized testing while providing a holistic context to Johannesburg and South Africa, in addition to the other cities in which we serve.
Joern Meissner is an internationally respected business school professor with a Diploma in Business Management from the University of Hamburg as well as a PhD in Management Science from Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the top Ivy League Schools. Upon finishing of his doctoral degree, Meissner decided upon the career track of a scholar and has now more than 25 years of experience as a postsecondary educator. His passion for teaching is evident, as he has taught business courses at the University of Hamburg, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management, Lancaster University Management School, as well as the University of Mannheim. Meissner's research on dynamic pricing, supply chain management, and revenue management has been published in several well-known and respected academic journals. While Professor Meissner comprehensively enjoys his research, he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun; imparting important knowledge to others is even more rewarding. This philosophy was paramount to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most treasured principle today.
