Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

I thought prepping for the test on my own would be sufficient. It was only after enrolling in the class that I realized the magnitude of the GMAT. My Veritas instructor provided me with an understanding of the test that I could not have experienced on my own.
-Adam H.

CURRICULUM

Veritas Prep's 'Think Like the Test Maker' methodology was a game changer for me. It is a systematic way to break down the question to quickly get to the answer. This is a critical skill for the GMAT.
-Adam T.

RESOURCES

The course materials set up the content in an easily digestible format and allowed me to slowly build up competencies. I'm confident I could not have prepared for the test as comprehensively on my own
-Jonathan P.

RETAKE

I just can't see how another test prep course could be more complete. Also the ability to retake the course within a year is an incredible bonus.

If you weren’t teaching the GMAT, What would you be teaching instead?
To some extent, I am cheating on the answer to this one. I currently teach economics to community college students in Chicago. I am one of the few people in the world who feels this way, but economic theory is endlessly fascinating to discuss. Teaching it is a fantastic job, and it is why I teach the GMAT now. I fell into teaching, but I learned that I really love it and really appreciate the opportunity to teach in other contexts (like the GMAT).
 
What do you love about teaching?
Teaching is great because it allows me to discuss intellectually interesting problems and ideas in a way that is not really possible in any other context. When I try to break down a GMAT question or economic theory into a process or argument that students can understand and internalize, I am forced to think about things I know quite well in a very different way. The act itself is rewarding, and in addition there is tremendous satisfaction in being able to help students achieve their goals in some small way, whether it be completing their undergraduate education or scoring well on their GMAT.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
My favorite lesson: Geometry.....I make it VERY interactive and I have the students 'teach the class'.

What do you love about teaching?
I love that moment when a student suddenly gets it.

What subject did you struggle with the most in school and how did you overcome it?
I hated Geography when I was younger.  It was the only class that I ever got a C in.  Freshman year in college, I took a class on Economic Development in the Third World, and in my first 10 days we had to learn every single country on the planet and be able to place it on the map.  I was a Freshman in a class of Seniors.  It was the only assignment I got an A on during that class, but I was so happy to have overcome my own fears of Geography and ace it.

Real reviews

He truly cared how we were progressing
Where was Kevin during my high school and college courses? He engaged the class 2 nights a week for 3 hours by creating personal relationships with each one of us. He truly cared how we were progressing in our knowledge of the lessons and helped us each individually during breaks if he noticed we were lost. Class was great.

He took an individualized approach to each lesson
I can't say enough good things about Veritas Prep ... and especially Kevin. He took an individualized approach to each lesson once he had gotten to know each student's strengths and weaknesses. He gave me specific study advice on breaks and before/after class that really helped me.

I raised my GMAT score by 120 points within a month!
I had Kevin Richardson as my tutor.  With his help, I raised my GMAT score by 120 points within a month!  I took the regular Veritas Prep course about 1.5 years ago, but did not take the GMAT right after the course.  After 1.5 years, my skills became rusty, and that resulted in a disappointing score.  Kevin helped me by analyzing my skill-set and pointing out my fortes and my weaknesses. He then customized his teaching methods per my needs and built up my confidence along the way.  After being burned by the low score, it was important to have Kevin providing me with tips for each section and helping me to regain my confidence.  His teaching is easy to understand and right to the point.  For anyone considering a GMAT tutoring service. I would definitely recommend Kevin.

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.
