Because our students have a multitude of distinct and unique learning needs, Manhattan Review's SSAT instruction comes in several formats, including on-site group courses, one-on-one tutoring, as well as online for students who prefer to study digitally. We also provide SSAT practice tests that simulate the structure, timing, and content of the real test to assist in familiarity and implementation of strategy.

It takes a special person to become a Manhattan Review test prep teacher. Obviously, we want people who have received high test scores (typically in the top 1%), but high scores alone are not sufficient. Some test prep companies hire on this basis alone, but at Manhattan Review, we go into much more depth. We strive to know a great deal about a prospective teacher's academic background. Where did she attend university? In what subject did she major? What was her GPA? These are only a few of the questions we ask of potential instructors throughout our rigorous interview process. Our Zurich 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 choose instructors 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 instructors are thoroughly trained in Manhattan Review's specific methods and materials. Our highly selective hiring process generates test prep educators of rare ability to meet and exceed the needs of our students in Zurich, Geneva, Lausanne, and all over the U.K.
The beginnings of Manhattan Review started 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 practical explanations of complex ideas, and as a result, several firmly believed his style of instruction would be ideal for Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) preparation. At the time, GMAT prep was lackluster, insipid, and left a lot to be desired. In response, Meissner came up with a series of GMAT lectures that used his trademark method of teaching. Early returns were very 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 Zurich and around the world offering services for all of the major standardized university admission tests. Our company has helped thousands of 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 top-notch test prep textbooks, assisted business professionals improve their language skills, and enhanced university applications with our admissions consulting services. At Manhattan Review, we combine the resources of a global company with the personalized service of a local firm, effectively serving the educational needs of the Zurich, Geneva, Lausanne, and throughout Switzerland.
Joern Meissner is an internationally renowned 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. Upon completing his doctoral degree, Meissner 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 own 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 understanding an idea is only half of the fun; imparting knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was foremost to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most valued principle today.
