Education:
BA, Loyola University
MA, Boston University
Neel Tummala is the ideal instructor for breaking down even the most seemingly esoteric GMAT questions. This Chicago native earned his BA close to home at Loyola University, and ventured east to Boston where he graduated with an MA from Boston University. But it wasn’t long before Neel returned to the shores of Lake Michigan. Says Neel about his beloved hometown: “I’ve never managed to escape!”
 
Neel is a family man and teacher who isn’t afraid to share his playfully humble side: “When I was ten, I wanted to be Spider-man. I managed to accomplish the socially awkward high school experiences, but I failed at everything else.” He pokes equal fun at his own athletic achievements: “I am horribly unathletic, to the point where it doesn’t even seem biologically possible.” But when it comes to teaching, there’s no point in downplaying how consumed Neel is with his students’ success. As an experienced master of the Veritas curriculum, Neel knows exactly what motivates him the most: “The act of teaching itself is rewarding, but there’s such tremendous satisfaction is helping students achieve their goals of scoring well on the GMAT.”


Education: BS, UC Berkeley | JD, USC | MBA, UCLA
Ravi Sreerama has seen his share of Pac-12 universities, having graduated from UC Berkeley (BS), USC (JD), and UCLA (MBA). He’s an experienced teacher who’s been selected as Veritas’ Instructor of the Year, and is currently the single highest-rated GMAT instructor in the world on GMAT Club (yes, you read that correctly). His “99th Percentile or Bust” teaching philosophy has empowered countless students (both in person, and online), and his methods are beloved for combining a rigorous classroom environment with personalized attention.

But it’s his deep passion for “making a difference” that motivates him.  “Sometimes it's big, sometimes it's small. But in the end, you're always making a difference. And when you see your students achieve that success, you can't help but feel proud that you played a part in that process.”   Oh - and did we mention that he’s the highest-rated GMAT instructor in the world?

Apart from his great teaching style, he kept the class motivated.
I took some of these trials with other companies and I can say I was easily bored after 1 hour. But not on Ravi's class. Apart from his great teaching style, he kept the class motivated. He made me try harder on each question one after the other. He reached out to everyone in the class and made sure that we understood where we did wrong and what we could do to avoid mistakes and I think that was the most important thing. He made sure everyone was satisfied at the end of the class and the show up to the classes represented that. It was a very dynamic class with everyone helping each other out and some of us are still in touch, helping each other with GMAT problems.

Ravi was easily one of the best teachers I have ever had.
I have never learned more from any other class I have taken in my history as a student. Ravi was easily one of the best teachers I have ever had. Ravi knew the ins and outs of every problem and explained his reasoning extremely well. I wouldn't recommend any other course or teacher if you are preparing to take the GMAT.

Ravi makes the GMAT looks so much more approachable.
As an international student non-native speaker, I was having a hard time with the verbal session - more specifically with the Sentence Correction. But after taking Ravi's classes, Sentence Correction became my favorite topic in the Verbal session. It's amazing how Ravi makes the GMAT looks so much more approachable. The way he teaches and explains all the GMAT stuffs is spectacular.


Education: BS,Truman State University | MA, History & Education, Truman State University | JD, University of Michigan
David Newland sees himself not simply as someone conveying information and content but as a coach as well. As he explains, “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!” As a competitor both in athletics and debate his whole life, he could choose to focus on his own successes of which he’s had many, but David finds a greater pride and joy in learning of the triumphs of his students. He truly relishes hearing from students he’s worked with that they have gotten their goal score or into their dream program. So if you’re fortunate enough to work with David, please be sure to let him know when the same happens for you.
 
Despite all the accomplishments, David did suffered one somewhat traumatic blow early in life. “I put together a song and dance number for the third-grade school talent show and the music teacher required me to lip synch so that no one would have to hear me sing. My dreams of a music career were shattered.”
 
Born and raised in Independence, Missouri, David earned his JD from Michigan and MA and BA from Truman University and now enjoys living in the beauty of Vermont. In fact, inspired by the Green Mountain state’s quiet, open roads, he’s now considering getting a motorcycle so that he can drive very slowly on the deserted roads of the early mornings. Might just be a great chance to sing out loud as you go, David.

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.
