Our Riyadh team of tutors possesses excellent academic and professional credentials, dedication to teaching, and years of experience teaching SAT prep to many different types of learners. The effectiveness of Manhattan Review's personalized SAT tutoring is shown by our students' acceptance to countless selective colleges, including Brown, Cornell, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, the University of Virginia, Georgetown, Duke, and the University of Chicago.

As of 2016, the College Board has extensively revised the SAT's content, administration, and scoring. The verbal sections of the new SAT de-emphasize vocabulary memorization through the discontinuation of sentence completion exercises, and reading passages encompass a wider range of subject matter. The math section now evaluates a smaller number of skills, with a focus that is more on real-world problem solving than abstract mathematical concepts. The new SAT includes a smaller total number of questions, and the penalty for guessing has been eliminated. The essay section is now optional and scored separately. The 2400-point scale has been replaced by a 1600-point scoring system that features a variety of sub-scores within and across the individual testing sections. These changes to the SAT have a significant impact on student preparation. Manhattan Review's customized SAT tutoring plans fully account for the challenges posed by the new SAT, and give our students score gains that are far superior to prerecorded video tutoring, self-study books, or private tutors unwilling to update their teaching methods.
At Manhattan Review, we constantly evaluate our educational practices from both short-term and long-term perspectives. Short-term effectiveness is shown by our students' impressive average score gains and acceptance to highly selective universities, but long-term success is ultimately measured by the professional lives of our students. Among the thousands of former Manhattan Review SAT students are respected employees of Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Archer Daniels Midland, Dow Chemical, and Prudential Financial, in addition to Riyadh firms such as Arabic Computer Systems, Nesma Advanced Technology, Al Rajhi Bank, and Zamil Industrial Investment. We also have a large number of former students now working in the public sector, as educators, administrators, research scientists, and public advocates. An investment in Manhattan Review's private SAT tutoring can set the stage for a lifetime of success.

Zach R. is a former high school math teacher from Denver, Colorado. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder and Metropolitan State University of Denver, with bachelor's and master's degrees in education. He has been an SAT tutor since the beginning of his sophomore year in college in 2005. He moved to Riyadh in 2013 to pursue opportunities teaching Saudi students interested in studying in the United States, and in addition to his SAT tutoring, he is also an English language instructor and GRE tutor.
Zach's student evaluations show him to be a patient and caring educator with an engaging teaching style. "Some teachers pressure their students too much and are an absolute bore," read one recent comment. "Zach's tutoring is just the opposite -- low pressure, sympathetic, and even fun, without sacrificing academic rigor." Zach plans to eventually return to the United States in order to pursue a doctorate in education, and his goal is to become a public school superintendent. When he's not teaching, he enjoys listening to the rock music of the 1970s, posting on his various social media accounts, and playing miniature golf.
