Overall I would rate my GRE preparation experience with Manhattan Elite Prep and my instructor Olaf as excellent. All GRE topics and material were well-covered. The GRE tutoring was great, and the possibility to take real-like tests was awesome. The GRE course material and the administrative support were also outstanding. I was very impressed with Olaf's teaching ability, preparedness, his knowledge of the subjects, his responsiveness to my questions and his accuracy. What made me choose Manhattan Elite Prep over their competitors was their location.
Thanks a lot for your thorough support throughout the application process! I just got HBS offer. Without your help, I probably wouldn’t have been able to turn around the application package over the last 2-3 weeks while working full time.

"Besjana was a fantastic GRE tutor! She was extremely accommodating to my schedule, really listened to what my goals were and set a strategic path to help me accomplish those goals. She was able to holistically help me with GRE and application components. Besjana was a tremendous GRE tutor and helped me immensely. She was very patient with me when I did not understand something and was able to explain things in ways that helped me get a full understanding of what i was learning. I would recommend her to anyone and could not ask for a better tutor. My overall goal was to get into an Ivy League graduate school. I still have not received word from them but I am confident that have done everything in my power, with the help of Besjana, to achieve that goal. I was happy with my overall score for the GRE and am awaiting decisions from the schools I've applied to." Carl A. (5 out of 5 Rating on Google Review)
