Best GRE Test Prep Tutoring in Hong Kong
Manhattan Review's one-to-one tutoring in Hong Kong can get you the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores necessary for acceptance into the American university you aspire to attend. Whether you're taking the general test or one of the subject-specific tests, we have tutors with years of experience preparing students for the challenges that the GRE poses. We'll individually assess your strengths and weaknesses in each area of the GRE, and create a tutoring program customized to your individual needs.
Manhattan Review has done the background research on the GRE, because it's our business to know these things for the sake of our students. We know that not all universities have set minimum GRE scores, but many of them do, and there can be significant variation in the requirements for individual schools and departments. To help us determine how well you'll need to do, median GRE scores for selected institutions are a good place to start. The University of Notre Dame reports median GRE scores of 165 verbal, 158 quantitative, and 5.0 analytical writing for its cohort of graduate students. Manhattan Review's private tutors go well beyond these general numbers, however. We're acutely aware, for example, that Ed.M. candidates at Harvard's Graduate School of Education are in the 80th and 61st percentile in verbal and quantitative respectively, with a 4.6 average in analytical writing. Let Manhattan Review put its extensive network of researchers to work and create a tutoring plan just for you and your individual goals.
Manhattan Review's private tutors are also up to date on the changes to the GRE that were implemented in 2011. The new GRE no longer allows the test-taker to choose the topic of the two required essays, the math portion now focuses less on abstract problems and more on real-world scenarios, and there is now a greater emphasis on reading comprehension. Some tutoring companies have been reluctant to update their materials and tutoring practices due to the cost and inconvenience of doing so, but at Manhattan Review we understand that staying current is the key to our Hong Kong students' success. Past Manhattan Review students have gained admission to Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, as well as employment at Fortune 500 companies such as Chevron, Fannie Mae, and JP Morgan Chase.
GRE Private Tutoring
I wanted to thank you for teaching my class and being such a dedicated instructor. When I first started studying for the GRE I was doing it from complete scratch as I had not done this type of math in many years. I was scoring in the low 300's, and was having trouble with some of the quick math necessary to do well on the test. Our class helped me figure out how to break down problems into commonly found concepts and to quickly do the computation to answer them (by, for example, factoring). I took the GRE this past Friday and scored a 720 in math -- much higher than I had originally hoped for when I started studying. I know your going the extra mile to help, both in tutoring and in class, really made a difference to my score. Thanks again!

Bobby C. is the descendant of Chinese immigrants who came to California in the wake of the mid-19th century gold rush. A graduate of the Boston public schools, Bobby completed a bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Boston College before serving as a police officer for seven years in Providence, Rhode Island. In his law enforcement career, Bobby saw firsthand the difficulties that immigrants in the United States face in terms of cultural assimilation and economic opportunity. He resolved to have the immigrant experience himself and left the police force with an eye toward working overseas. Realizing that he needed additional education to be attractive to international firms, Bobby completed a master's degree in sociology at Brown University, and took additional classes in computer security.
Bobby was able to use his police experience and academic credentials to secure a job as a security consultant at a firm in Hong Kong, where his duties include teaching employees data protection and crime prevention in the workplace. Manhattan Review recruiters met Bobby when he helped us implement new security procedures at our Hong Kong offices. It turned out that he had used our GRE prep services as part of his successful application to Brown, and we were able to interest him in doing the same for others. Since completing his Manhattan Review tutor training, Bobby has prepared a large number of Hong Kong students for the GRE, and plans to keep doing so as an important part of his overseas professional life.
