Logan Smeallie

New York, NY


  • UNC Chapel Hill
  • Boston University (grad)

Logan grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and has since lived in several places, landing in New York in 2017. Always drawn to both analytical and creative fields, he studied both physics and media production at the University of North Carolina, causing quite a lot of people to ask if he “wanted to be the next Bill Nye the Science Guy or something.” The answer was no, primarily because “Logan Smeal’s Science Spiel” is not a very good name.

Logan spent parts of three years in Durham, NC teaching math, science, and video production classes to middle and high school students, then earned a master’s in television production from Boston University (though he regrets to reveal that he has not yet produced any masterful television). Instead, he joined Manhattan Prep’s media team, where he helped build the on-demand GRE Interact course and is still waiting for his Grammy for Best Narrator of a Test Prep Audiobook.

In 2018, he joined the instructional side of MPrep as well, and has enjoyed sharing his bizarre enjoyment of standardized tests with students. Logan has always loved both math and reading—the central components of the GRE—and wants you to love them too, even if it’s in an “I love you, but I’m not IN love with you” sort of way.

What students are saying

“Logan made class really fun. He is very good at taking the time to understand where confusion about a question or topic came from and helping us work through it.”

What students are saying

“He was super kind, very encouraging, and made class enjoyable to go to. He made me feel like I could conquer the GRE!”

What students are saying

“His class is always fun and engaging and he is very skilled at breaking down complex problems and explaining the best way to approach difficult Quant topics. I definitely recommend Logan’s class.”
