INSTRUCTORS

My instructor was the best professor I've ever had my academic career. If only the Ivy's can live up to his standards, then I will surely be satisfied. He strikes a perfect balance of rigor, communication, and support.

What do you love about teaching?
The amazing thing about teaching is that you have the chance to change the way that a person thinks in ways that you may not see. You never know the result at the time that you are teaching, but sometimes you meet a student years later who tells you how you changed their life.

What subject did you struggle with the most in school and how did you overcome it?
I thought marketing management was pretty boring, so I adopted a technique to help me stay focused. Whenever I realized my mind was wandering, I would always write down the next word that I heard the professor say, no matter what it was. My notes were strewn with all kinds of random words, but, believe it or not, I could review my notes and recall exactly what the professor was saying at the time.

What is your proudest accomplishment? 
Getting a perfect score on the GMAT.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
I think my proudest moments occurred while flying medical evacuation sorties as a Navy helicopter pilot.  To be able to say, definitively, that I was a part of a crew that saved somebody's life and that person is around today because I did my job, that's humbling.
 
What do you love about teaching?
Everything.  It's meant to be organized but it's often messy, which can be fun.  It's where discovery happens, even for the teacher.  It's personal.  And the people that do it really well are the ones that really care about the person on the receiving end.

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT?
Mark Watney, lead character in The Martian.  The guy figured out how to life hack Mars.  I think he is your prototype of a GMAT problem solver.

What is your favorite lesson to teach?
My favorite lesson to teach is data sufficiency. Everyone learns something in data sufficiency! Everyone has that “aha moment” that I love. Some people come to the lesson with a big fear of data sufficiency and I am able to give them the tools to build their confidence. Some people come in thinking that they know everything about data sufficiency and are shocked by how much they actually learn during that lesson. It really is a metaphor for all of the other sections of the GMAT, it is not just what you know, it is how you play the game and data sufficiency is all about learning to play the game. What can be more fun than that? 

If you were not teaching the GMAT what would you be teaching instead?
If I were not teaching the GMAT I would be a coach. In fact I think of what I do for Veritas Prep as coaching. Like a sports coach or a vocal coach, or even a life coach, a GMAT coach is doing more than conveying content. The students that I work with need more than knowledge, they need to be able to perform to the best of their abilities on test day and it is my pleasure to help them do it!

Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not
I paid for 28 hours of online tutoring with Veritas Prep. I was assigned David Newland as my instructor. It was the best money I could have spent. Within six weeks of working with David, I scored 770 and 760 on the GMAT Prep Software PP1 and PP2 tests. On the real exam I scored 700 (90%), comprising Quant 47 (73%) and Verbal 39 (88%). The drop between the PP tests and the real test was mostly due to nerves and bad time management on the day. Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not given I only had six weeks to prepare. David was excellent. With 8+ years of GMAT experience he knows how to solve every question the test can throw at you. He explained methodology in a clear and easy to apply fashion. He was also flexible and we could frequently schedule sessions on short notice.

This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out
Got so lucky to get David Newland as my instructor. I went into the course more confident in quant, and David is a verbal expert, specifically in Critical Reasoning. This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out, which was helpful since I had never taken the exam before. I could hear his voice inside my head as I did practice problems and during the actual GMAT.

David was excellent.
The instructor David was excellent. I found that he took the time to explain each section properly and in easy to understand language. I very much enjoyed this course and would recommend it to any one with a very hectic schedule.
