1. Early life and education

Manger-Weil attended Dartmouth College in the 1970s and graduated with BA in philosophy in 1980. He began tutoring students for the SATs as an undergraduate at Dartmouth.

2. The College Wizard

After having worked closely with the SAT format for 30 years, Manger-Weil founded the College Wizard in 2010. He tutors clients one-on-one often through Skype from his home base in New York City. He claims to have a system of "7 cardinal rules" that can ensure a perfect score of 2400 on the SAT. He also guarantees noticeable increases in test scores among his clients. His course can take as little as five hours, but can go on longer, until the client is satisfied with their SAT scores. Manger-Weil charges a flat fee for his services, and also provides advice and marketing for gaining entry into the best colleges.

Manger-Weil has engaged in several other entrepreneurial ventures and is heavily involved in the "solopreneur" movement. In 2003, he started a consulting firm geared toward helping people start their own businesses. He recently teamed up with fellow solopreneur Bruce Judson in a consulting firm called Your Personal Action Plan, aimed at solo businesspeople on the internet.
