It’s the time of year when enterprising business school hopefuls are getting a head-start on their GMAT studies. It can take quite a bit of time to get a good score on the GMAT so, if you can, get the test out of the way well before you have to start in on your applications.

In the first part of this 2-part series, we’ll discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the three primary study approaches: self-study, GMAT class, and private tutoring. In the second part, we’ll examine how to choose the best program and instructor for you (if you decide to take a GMAT class or work with a tutor). Read more

GMAT, GRE, and LSAT Instructor Auditions: Decision In A Day (New York City)



Manhattan Prep offers instructors flexible hours and great pay ($100/hour for all teaching and $116/hour for all tutoring). As a Manhattan Prep instructor, you will have autonomy in the classroom, but you will also be joining an incredibly talented and diverse network of people. We support our instructors by providing students, space, training, and an array of curricular resources.

Our regular instructor audition process, which consists of a series of videos and mini lessons, usually takes weeks, even months, to complete. Through this process we winnow an applicant pool of hundreds down to a few people each year.

We are offering a one-day event on March 1st for teachers interested in working with us. Candidates who attend will receive a decision that day. The event will take place at our company headquarters at 138 West 25th St., 7th Floor, in Manhattan, New York City.  It is open to candidates who live in the tri-state area, have taught before, and are experts in the GMAT, LSAT, or GRE.

The day will include several rounds of lessons, as well as other activities. Each round will be pass / fail. The day will begin at 10 am. It may last as late as 5:30 pm for those who make it through the final round. Candidates will need to prepare lessons for some rounds; we will send more detailed instructions to candidates when they sign up for the event.

To register, please email Rina at by Thursday, February 26. Please include in your email a resume including your teaching experience and a score report.

Starting to Prep


Hi, all, and welcome to my inaugural post on the MGMAT blog. I’m really excited to join Andrew in talking about All Things GMAT. 🙂

So I thought I’d post some ideas about how to get started. People prep in a variety of ways but there are three big categories in general: self study, private tutoring, and classes.

There is no one right way to prep, but there are some things to keep in mind while you decide which path is the best one for you.
