About Manhattan Prep

Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek, began with a vision of students learning better, if given more qualified teachers, back in 2000. He assembled a hand-picked team of 99th percentile educators to give potential learners a more substantial preparatory experience and the concept of Manhattan Prep was born.

Offering an approach that touts critical thinking, rather than using tricks and gimmicks, Zeke and his team of accomplished instructors believe that learning should be fun and not just something the student should suffer through as a means to the end.


Manhattan Prep offers services for self-starters, giving them readily available options offered at their own pace, up to and including last-minute crunch courses. More structured online courses are available for those who need tutoring options and more advanced, comprehensive direction and assistance.

    I took ManhattanPrep’s group class for my GMAT preparation. Overall, the course provided a very solid foundation for the GMAT. The instructor was extremely helpful both in the class setting and individually. The class was intimate enough to ask individual questions while also large enough to feel motivated by and learn from my classmates. I especially appreciated the online resources that ManhattanPrep offers students. In particular, the online practice exams allowed me to create tangible goals and really understand my progress. After studying for a few more months after the course by taking more practice exams, I ended up with a 710 on my GMAT.

    I began prepping as most do — with books, scratch paper, a calculator and a target score in mind. From the first practice test onward I knew I needed to something different to really improve my score. I was able to raise my score over 100 points and score in the 98% percentile using the techniques I learned in class all while working a demanding job and with a newborn at home. The key is to give yourself time, to be consistent, and to work hard.

    I decided to sign up for a GMAT prep course after speaking with a few friends who tried studying on their own and did not get the score they wanted after two attempts. After taking a course, they beat their desired score on the first try. I picked Manhattan Prep after doing a trial online class. I was concerned about doing it online because I thought it would be easy to zone out, but the instructors make it very collaborative and engaging. My starting score (before the class) was 580 and my goal was 680-700. After a lot of work, I got it up to 640. After the course I had a post-class consultation where they reviewed my stats. This really helped me tune in to my verbal skills when I thought that math was really my weakness. When I finally took the test, I ended up with a 730! The course completely set me up for success.
