Joseph Dise

Education:
BS, Virginia Tech
MBA, William & Mary


Hear from Joseph

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
I had a student who was sharp and focused and definitely capable of delivering a great score.  Then came test day: he’d underperformed by almost 100 points.  Definitely a disappointing result, but it can happen.  We got together and assessed what went wrong – it turned out that in studying he’d blown through hundreds of problems without making sure he fully understood how they worked.  Lesson: quantity is no substitute for quality!  With a renewed focus on studying for 100% comprehension, he came back with a score above his goal, a more than 100 point jump.  I couldn’t have been prouder.

Which movie/tv character would do best on the GMAT?
Patrick Jane from The Mentalist. As a master mind reader, almost nothing gets by Patrick Jane, though he always works with limited information: no criminal will ever tell the whole story, and there are of course always several wily suspects who hide their agendas too.  Kind of like those crafty GMAT test makers.  But with a cup of tea and a knowing smile, he mentally jujitsus everyone involved.  Knowing their limited capacity to deceive, he exploits all the info available to corner the right suspects – just as he would the right answer choices on the GMAT.

What is your favorite lesson to teach?  
Reading Comprehension. As it is for many, this was by far my worst skill set back before I took the SAT; the questions felt arbitrary!  Is the tone cautiously optimistic or more like hesitatingly hopeful?  The author’s purpose? How am I supposed to know??  But – no kidding – with only a few slight mental adjustments it quickly became my biggest strength.  So it’s a personal mission for me.  There may be a little bit less going on in terms of traps and shortcuts, but it’s a skill that, once developed, has immediate impact for a better understanding of nearly everything you’ll encounter in life.

Real reviews

Went above and beyond the lesson text
My instructor, Joseph, was genuinely invested in helping students understand the material and went above and beyond the lesson text, offering time-saving strategies and giving thoughtful context throughout the lessons. He made himself available and offered relevant insights that extended beyond the GMAT.

Could not recommend him more highly.
Joe was a fantastic instructor. Could not recommend him more highly.

Joseph Dise is a class act.
Joseph Dise is a class act. He's a genuine instructor who promptly starts class on time, every-time. As a bright young man, he is clearly able to think on his feet in fielding questions from classmates while thoroughly walking through problems step by step for the audience to follow along. Unassumingly, he takes the time to SHOW us how to approach problem sets and expand one's own thinking to gain awareness of the situation by accurately and methodically teaching us solutions.


Rob Stringham

Education:
BA, Bringham Young University
MBA, Columbia


Hear from Rob

What does it take to win Veritas Prep’s Instructor of the Year award?  For Rob, it’s a combination of teaching excellence (Rob has not only scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT but also ranked in the 99th percentile among Veritas Prep faculty on student evaluation scores in multiple years) and just plain dedication.  Famously, Rob went straight from the delivery room after the birth of his daughter to the classroom, making it to a 10am Saturday morning class on time after becoming a father in the middle of the night.  It’s also a function of experience; by now Rob has taught for Veritas Prep for over 10 years in several cities, allowing him to give students in Midtown Manhattan the benefit of years of breakthrough shortcuts and lessons.
 
A graduate of Columbia Business School, Rob understands his students’ path much deeper than just the GMAT.  A valuation expert in the world of private equity, he’s seen the finish line that his students strive for, and serves not just as a coach on that journey but also as a motivator having seen it through himself.

Real reviews

Rob did a fantastic job
Rob did a fantastic job helping us understand what the creators of the GMAT are looking for in successful test takers. Getting inside the head of the test maker was one of the most important takeaways from the course.  The books alone are worth the price of the class, but Rob really helped solidify what we were learning.  I honestly felt that he cared about how we did on the exam.

He has a very personal approach to every student.
Our teacher was Rob Stringham. He is very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. He would stay with us after the end of the class to answer our questions and do the problems together that we asked him about. Not at all like those teachers that behave like they know it all and you’ll never get even close to their level of understanding the topic. He has a very personal approach to every student. If you are suffering from anxiety passing the exam he will recommend the ways to work with this issue, good literature to read on this topic and some tricks that will help you to reduce the level of anxiety about the test.

One of the best teachers I've had in any classroom setting.
Rob Stringham was one of the best teachers I've had in any classroom setting. Yes, he's very knowledgeable about how to solve GMAT problems, but more importantly, he effectively communicated the importance of ongoing study outside of the classroom. He also offered a holistic view of the GMAT, covering everything from stress management to timing to additional helpful resources. Rob's instruction helped me get the most out of the six weeks in the class and understand fully what I still need to do to find success in taking the GMAT.


Ethan Todras-Whitehill

Education:
BA, Tufts


Hear from Ethan

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.

Real reviews

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).


Dave Halliday

Education:
BA, Stanford
MBA, Yale


Hear from Dave

What do you love about teaching?
I love two things: the "aha" moments when students get a core concept and getting word from former students that they beat their target score.  In the classroom it's easy to tell whether students are getting it: frowns get turned upside down and faces brighten.  Online, this can be a bit tougher to gauge.  Students tend to be a bit reticent, so I'll usually interpret "yeah...." as sign that we need to go over the material one more time.  If I get back an exclamation point or an emoticon, that's when I know the class has it!

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
It's a common misperception that Sherlock Holmes only uses deductive logic.  While his skills of deduction would allow him to wreck shop on Inference and Data Sufficiency questions, that alone doesn't guarantee a top GMAT score.  He also commonly uses inductive logic - creating and testing hypotheses while gathering facts to narrow down the range of possible solutions to a crime.  This would give him an edge on gap-spotting on Strengthen/Weaken problems, finding the purpose in Reading Comprehension questions, and narrowing down the possible strategies for Problem Solving questions.  If Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary) went head-to-head, I think the more socially unaware portrayal by Cumberbatch would win because he would never let his intuition get in the way of his logic.

Real reviews

He was great!
I really enjoy classes with Dave, he was clear with his explanation and always tried to address the topics in a way that all of us could understand. He was great!

Great instructor. 
Dave Halliday was a great instructor.  He was passionate about making sure everyone is on the same page and understands the questions perfectly.

I highly highly recommend Dave Halliday.
Dave Halliday is one of the best instructors i have come across in my life. He makes sure that entire class understands the course (each and every topic). His experiences, his teaching methods and always there to answer the questions with a lot of patience are few qualities of him, that makes him outstanding. I would recommend everyone if they get a chance, to be part of his class. I highly highly recommend Dave Halliday.



Brandon Pierpont

Education:
BBA, University of Notre Dame



Hear from Brandon

Which character would do best on the GMAT?
Ben Matlock, from the 1980’s and 90’s legal drama “Matlock,” would be the GMAT’s worst enemy.  Matlock has an ability to “read between the lines” that is so critical to succeeding on the GMAT.  The test presents relatively simple information in very complicated and backwards manners, and this genius of crime solving would see the information for what it truly is.  Nice try GMAT, but you’re guilty.

Which subject did you struggle with most in school, and how did you overcome it?
I could not for the life of me figure out mitosis and meiosis. Teachers, family and friends all aged rapidly while attempting to help me.  They used pipe cleaner “chromosomes,” detailed drawings, and extensive explanations to teach me, yielding…nothing.  Eventually, while discussing the processes during an hour-long phone call with a friend the night before my test, it clicked.  I finally understood how mitosis and meiosis work, and just in time!  The key is that I never gave up, and neither did those trying to teach me.  It took some time and a few different explanations, but I eventually learned these subjects well enough to ace my test!

Real reviews

He is very qualified in his knowledge 
Brandon was a great instructor. He is very qualified in his knowledge and understanding of the material and funny and personable to make the class engaging and the three hours each session fly by. He worked through every problem in a clear and logical manner and always stayed after class to help out. His truthfulness and down to earth manner makes you feel that the test is nothing but a game you can beat and he shares all his tricks and advice to beat it.

I had the most amazing time
I had the most amazing time learning about GMAT and its different strategies. Brandon Pierpont did a great job teaching this course and I would recommend everyone to take it.

Brandon is a great instructor 
Brandon is a great instructor whose enthusiastic attitude and effective teaching methods really helped in making our class dynamic and fruitful. He always came prepared to class and it was clear that he's well versed in the material.  I would definitely recommend Brandon as a tutor as he has truly provided a strong foundation for my GMAT preparation.

 


Ravi Sreerama

Education:

MBA, UCLA


Hear from Ravi

What do you love about teaching?
Making a difference. 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.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
The Chef! I learned on the first day of class that he was a high-school dropout who never went to college. So, I pulled him aside during a break and I told him that he would have to change his attitude if he wanted to achieve success with the GMAT. He was going to have to listen to me instead of those demons from his past. But if he could not do that, he should walk out right then and there. Fortunately, he said that he would try - which is all I could truly ask at that point. Over the following weeks, I motivated him to work hard and he succeeded... in a big way, ultimately scoring 760 and getting into INSEAD!

Real reviews

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.

Hear from David

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!

Real reviews

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.

Which character would do best on the GMAT:  Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm.  The way he notices little things, fixates on them, and won’t let them go – he’d be a master of Data Sufficiency.  “Why is this word problem about bags of sugar and not just sugar?  Why wouldn’t they just say sugar?  Why the bags?  Ohh…it has to be an integer.  Got you, GMAT. Pretty, pretty, pretty good trick you tried to get me with…”

Favorite Veritas Prep Success Story:  I had a guy – Jason White, but not the Heisman winner - take one of our old weekend crash courses and he came in having just scored a 490 on the official test two days prior, and already had his next test scheduled for that coming Tuesday (back then you could take the test once per calendar month, not once per 30 days).  He told me “I need a 700…let’s get there” and I was skeptical, but he really took all of our lessons to heart – I’d highlight a trap answer and why you might pick it and he’d look up and say “I made that same mistake twice”…that kind of thing.  He made a ton of progress but I was still nervous for him.  Two days later I get the call and I was nervous to even take it knowing how hard it is to get from the 4s to the 7s in general, let alone that quickly.  He had hit 710, and the funniest thing was that I was much more surprised and excited.  Business as usual for him, but for me – 220 points in less than a week? That’s when I knew the stuff we were teaching was working.

Proudest accomplishment: Qualifying for the Boston Marathon.  It’s so much hard work to get in that kind of shape but then you also have to deliver on race day – you have to pace yourself, you have to stick to your plan, you have to push through pain and fatigue and stay upbeat and focused over all that distance.  And all that really matters when you’re gunning for a BQ is that final number – did you make the cut or not?  I like thinking back to that experience when I’m teaching because it’s pretty similar to what students with 700+ ambitions are going through.  Nerves, fatigue, uncertainty, but you have to keep a sense of optimism.  Having gone through that helps me relate to stressed-out students…particularly those who are trying to “qualify for Boston” (Harvard or MIT-Sloan, maybe) themselves.

Brian Galvin is AMAZING; knows his material in and out
Can I say amazing? Of course, I had the honor of being taught by Brian Galvin and Matt Douglas. I say "honor", because Brian Galvin is AMAZING; knows his material in and out, has clear cut methodologies of explaining them (even to idiots like me), engaging enough that I didn't fizzle out through the 9 hr session, but also didn't pace too quickly or too slowly. While grueling and jam-packed with info, it was probably the best investment I've made thus far in this whole GMAT process. The take-aways from the class were so valuable and added another dimension to the weekly Veritas course I'm taking.  I highly recommend the 2 day boot camp, but more so recommend taking the course specifically with Brian Galvin.

He's patient and just really good at his job.
Brian is wonderful. Some people do this just for money, Brian is genuinely interested in the success of his students. He's patient and just really good at his job. Brian is super smart, patient, will address each person's concerns and make sure we are always comfortable before moving on. It's a course 7-10pm after a long day of work, he makes the experience as pleasant as possible. He's also very sociable, talks to us before class or during break. You can tell he's a seasoned teacher and really enjoys teaching.

He is no ordinary tutor
That's where Brian Galvin comes in. He is no ordinary tutor :) . He is the Jesus of the GMATland. The son sent over to save the millions of test takers who are up against the test.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is one by Benjamin Franklin on education: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." The entire Veritas Prep curriculum has been developed around the concept of Learning by Doing, and this quote captures exactly why we have done that. Rote memorization and rote learning are not effective approaches in education, and this is especially true when preparing for a reasoning and problem solving based test such as the GMAT.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest life accomplishment remains the first time I climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. Although I had already been an active rock-climber while in high school on the coast of Maine, I was not prepared for the intimidating scale of Yosemite's huge granite walls when I moved to California to attend Stanford.  The first time I climbed there, I stood at the base of El Cap and thought I would never in my life climb this amazing piece of rock. One year later, after 4 days on the wall, I pulled onto the summit of El Cap, exhausted and elated; even though I have gone on to do many harder and more committing climbs, nothing will ever compare to the sense of accomplishment I felt that day.

Chris is a master of the GMAT material
My instructor, Chris Kane, was outstanding and helped me understand the different types of questions that the GMAT will use and the best ways to conquer these questions. I also did individual tutoring sessions with Chris and would highly recommend him. Chris knows how to teach complex subject matter to students. Chris knows all the different types of questions and strategies that the GMAT will throw at you. Choose Veritas Prep and Chris Kane.

Amazing teacher!
I can confidently say that Chris is responsible for at least 100 points increase in my score. Amazing teacher!

Just an overall great instructor.
Chris Kane was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable in all facets of the GMAT and just an overall great instructor. The 12 books that are given are extremely helpful, especially the skillbuilder sections. I learned valuable techniques and strategies to assist with question approach and time management. It was an awesome experience that was very beneficial.

What do you love about teaching?
I always like to say, “I don’t teach lessons, I teach people.”  My favorite part of teaching is the ability to connect with other people and figure out how we may think about things differently. Just because you approach a subject, an idea or a problem differently than someone else, that doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily right or wrong—it’s just different.  I love to see how different people view the world around them in such vastly divergent ways. As a teacher, my goal is to meet them where they are now—how they think, what they see, the process they’re most comfortable with—and try to open their eyes to a different approach, a new discovery, or a beneficial thought process. Yes, it may help them on the GMAT, but hopefully it helps all of us to be a little more flexible in our outlooks on life.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach? 
One of the things I enjoy is bringing structure to seemingly nebulous things. Therefore, I love to teach Sentence Correction. Usually about half of my students absolutely HATE Sentence Correction when they start. Let’s face it, English is an absolute mess. Who came up with this disaster of a language? However, you don’t have to be an expert grammarian to do well on these problems. With a structured approach to the problem and implementing a strategy called “Decision Points,” you can get the right answer with limited knowledge (and effort). I just love to see my students’ eyes light up when we teach this strategy and it completely transforms their entire view of these problems.

My instructor, Travis Morgan, was phenomenal. 
  He was able to teach difficult concepts in simple ways so that everyone could understand.   Veritas Prep dissects the GMAT so that you know exactly what to expect and gives many helpful hints so that you know how to think like the test makers. The books that come with the course actually explain short cuts to doing the problems and walk you through step-by-step.  Seriously everyone in my class was very happy with the course and felt that it was well worth the money.

His classes were very dynamic
My instructor Travis Morgan (LA) was awesome!; he helped me to focus on effective strategies to tackle the GMAT! His classes were very dynamic and gave us advices out of the (material from his personal exprience as a test taker). My instructor and Veritas Prep are highly recomended!!

Special praise must be given to instructor Travis Morgan
whose upbeat personality kept me awake after a full day of work. Highly recommend
