Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
Data Sufficiency, no doubt. I love the hungry looks my students get in their eyes when it suddenly clicks and they realize they can use the GMAT's traps against it. The Princess Bride routine I do as part of it? That helps, I'm sure, but it might just be to keep us all entertained.

What is your favorite problem from the Official Guide and why?
13th Ed, SC #133

I really like teaching Sentence Correction because it's the one place in Verbal where significant strides can be made by learning a few key grammatical concepts. This problem does its best to hide its classic 3/2 verb agreement split by switching up the continuous/non-continuous aspect (not a concept tested on the GMAT) in the verb decision point at the end of the underlining. Once you notice that split, it also does its best to hide the subject behind a raft of modifiers, but again a simple rule (the subject you're looking for won't be found in a modifier unless the verb is part of that same modifier) helps us get rid of tempting plural candidates nets, devices, and laws to find the correct singular subject compliance. From there it's relatively obvious.

So what I like is that this problem is very easy for someone who has mastered two of the key skills we teach: identifying the good decision points and identifying the proper subject for a verb. And yet for someone lacking those two skills it's fairly difficult. I find that while many students want to improve on Verbal, deep down they need to be sold on why they should relearn (or in many cases learn for the first time) basic grammar instead of just relying on their ears. And this problem does a good job of showing them.

Ethan turns the cold, pragmatic GMAT into a humorous foe
Ethan took me from a 610 to a 690. I have learned from Ethan both in a group and one-on-one setting, and in both he is phenomenal. If you want an instructor who adjusts based off of your learning style,  reinforces both the technical and strategic sides of the GMAT while keeping the material engaging, he's your man. Ethan turns the cold, pragmatic GMAT into a humorous foe by using examples from life and film. After working with Ethan, you won't be able to watch The Princess Bride without thinking of Data Sufficiency... and that's not a bad thing. I went from being nervous and self-questioning on my first test to relaxed, optimistic, and (I didn't expect to say this) EXCITED on my final test day.

Ethan was a phenomenal teacher.
Ethan was a phenomenal teacher.  He genuinely cares that you learn, and more importantly, retain the material.  Everything was very well structured and easy to follow.  I highly recommend this class to anyone looking for GMAT prep.

Ethan was amazing
Ethan was amazing, and made the material very digestible.  His strategies are working and I can tell that he has spent a lot of time thinking about incorporating his style with the material (very polished).

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
I enjoy teaching the Geometry lesson.  Many students come to the class with a mental roadblock to Geometry.  However, once these students see that there are only 4 basic shapes that they need to understand, it is a relief and not quite as daunting.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?  
I had a student whose score was dropping as she studied. She had taken all of the practice tests through Veritas Prep, plus had purchased additional practice test to help her study.  We decided that she should stop taking the practice tests and focus her study time on her weak subject areas.  With taking the practice tests, she was causing herself to have test anxiety and wasn't actually learning the material.  By focusing on her weak areas, she was able to bring her score up 100 points and get accepted to The University of Texas' McCombs School of Business.

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
I should say Matt Damon's character from Good Will Hunting or Russell Crowe's character from A Beautiful Mind.  However, I have to say Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.  The guy made wedding rings out of light fixtures by melting down the metal and pouring it into a mold.  Is there anything he can't do!?!  The real reason I would pick Ron Swanson is that he has an ability to simplify the most complex problems, take away all of the clutter and find the most efficient solution.  These skills would allow him to approach many of the quantitative problems and solve them without actually doing much math and allow him to see the traps on the verbal questions while concentrating only on the information that the problem gives.

Kristine, specifically, was great.
The in-class lessons are great for really diving into the material and learning exactly how to break down each question type and arrive at the best answer. Kristine, specifically, was great. She showed a genuine interest in the progress of each person in my class. Doing the homework after each class is a great way to see every question type/format possible for each lesson and reinforce the tactics learned in the lessons. I did every problem and really saw myself improve.

She was prepared for every class and communicated very effectively.
Kristine Dugan was a great instructor and very knowledgeable in every facet of the class. She was prepared for every class and communicated very effectively. She genuinely cares about how each of us were doing in regards to understanding the lessons.

Kristine was incredibly helpful and encouraging, and extremely intelligent.
My instructor, Kristine Dugan, was excellent at communicating the concepts to us, and the class size actually was only me and one other student. This private setting allowed us one-on-one attention with the instructor. Kristine was incredibly helpful and encouraging, and extremely intelligent. She kept the lessons light-hearted and we even got in some laughs (yes, during GMAT studying!). I would highly recommend her and the Veritas Prep book set was great. Excellent program!
