A bartender giveth, and a bartender taketh away. Part of the profession is adhering to liquor laws, recognizing minors, and deftly dealing with intoxicated patrons. At B.A. Mixologist, teachers work all of those vital subjects into their curriculum, alongside the more fun stuff, such as common cocktail recipes, techniques for organizing a bar, and why bar jukeboxes are legally required to contain Hall and Oates. Beneath shelves brimming with different brands of hooch, the team can eventually guide students to certification as a mixologist and TABC-adherent bartender. Afterwards, mentors don’t simply kick their new trainees out the door with a pat on a back. They instead induct their charges into their staffing service, which focuses on finding positions for bartenders and waiters.
Manhattan Elite Prep's staff of teachers and consultants carries firsthand experience navigating the complicated labyrinth of school admissions. Some were students whose high test scores and poignant essays got them into top PhD and Ivy League MBA programs. Some consultants served on admissions committees of coveted schools and know what experience, qualities, and acrobatic feats make student applications stand out. Now, this team of insiders at a firm with more than 10 years of experience pools its knowledge to help students who are serious about acing tests and placing in their top schools. They emphasize efficiency, packing as much information as they can into the time allotted, and exceeding beyond minimum requirements. Courses covering entrance tests teach students to work smarter, ruling out wrong answers and budgeting their time wisely, and essay consultants pare down applications to deliver rich content in a limited word count. Customers may complete classes online or interact in-person with their instructors as well as fellow students.
