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.
