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.

What is your favorite quote?
“Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right.” – Henry Ford
In life so much comes down to having the confidence to make a decision and pursuit something that others are afraid to. If you don’t approach the GMAT with the expectation that you WILL score in the 99th percentile then you never stand a shot at doing so. If you shoot and miss, you’ll likely be breathing rarified air anyways, so it doesn’t hurt to go at it full steam ahead.
 
What is your proudest accomplishment?
In 2014 I left a major bank to start my own company, an investment fund that evaluates risk differently than most other funds. I still run my fund, and have enjoyed tutoring while doing so as it affords me an opportunity to meet interesting people and help them achieve their goals.
 
What subject did you struggle with the most in school and how did you overcome it?
I was always terrible at History because I had trouble with memorization. While Math was logical and I had a good ear for the English language, History required me to assume a brute force approach which I still apply when learning difficult or factual material today. Sometimes the only way to conquer a problem is to work on it until it breaks, and I think this is true of the more difficult GMAT concepts as well.
 


Education:

What is your favorite lesson to teach? 
My favorite lesson to teach is the advanced verbal lesson. It's here where you get to really see the testmaker's point of view, and the difficulty of the test crumbles away because you now know exactly how that difficulty was put together.

What is your favorite quote? 
My favorite quote is from Theodore Roosevelt, and it has a lot of applicability to studying among other things! The credit, and success on the test, belongs to those who strive and are not afraid to make mistakes, face up to them and learn from each one. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Charles always did his job well.
I would highly recommend Charles to all my friends. Charles always did his job well. He helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses and helped me make a game plan that would address my areas of improvement. Always gave me good advice, always did it wanting me to perform my best. Overall, Charels filled the role of tutor very well. He seems like he has a lot of experience tutoring - not just a 99% percentile score on the GMAT.

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
​Reading comprehension is my favorite lesson to teach, not only because there is a natural storytelling component to the lesson, but also because I think translating GMAT-ese into plain English is the most important thing students need to learn before the test.  

What is your favorite quote?
This quote has become cliché for my generation, but I do love the opening lines from a poem in Tolkein's first Lord of the Rings book: All that is gold does not glitter/Not all those who wander are lost.  The couplet rhymes with my worldview on investing, career choices, and standardized tests.  We all face many choices, and the correct ones sometimes require a little wandering before you find them.

Eric taught me the requisite soft skills necessary to beat the GMAT.
Before taking the Veritas Prep course with Eric, I was unsure if it was even worth taking a course.  I thought that if I put in time through self-study, my score would increase enough.  Luckily, I opted for the course and learned a lot more than simple facts and formulas that can be found in any prep book. Eric taught me the requisite soft skills necessary to beat the GMAT. My score went up 60 points in the 9 week period from the first lesson until test day.  Now, my score is competitive at all business schools, instead of just most business schools.  I attribute the score increase to the skills I learned in the course with Eric, not rote memorization.

Eric goes above and beyond to make sure students are on pace to meet their goal
I recently completed the Veritas Prep course with instructor Eric Maltzer. Eric goes above and beyond to make sure students are on pace to meet their goals and often shows up early/stays late to provide students with 1-on-1 time. My score has improved over 70 points from the course, and Eric has provided me with a comprehensive study schedule for my test date in a few weeks. I'm currently 10 points away from my target score and am confident that if I stick to Eric's plan I will beat the GMAT!

Eric was amazing.
Eric was amazing. He was very invested in everyone's success in a way that implied that failure was not an option. One of the things he did to make sure we each reached our goal was he made time to speak with us each one-on-one before or after class. Eric is a highly entertaining teacher, which made being in class for 3 hours after work bearable. He is also quite clear and does a good job pointing out what's important. We all liked him so much we were a little sad when class ended.  This personal connection he developed with the class made his high expectations of us more meaningful.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Best GMAT instructor I have ever had
Joseph Dise by far is the best GMAT instructor/tutor I have ever had. I myself worked as a SAT tutor in the past for Princeton review and I can honestly say that they have no one on their staff as knowledgeable and passionate about beating the GMAT. I have already recommended him specifically to pretty much anyone who is willing to hear.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
That one is easy. Arithmetic. Students often think that a lesson called “Arithmetic” will not even be worth their time, until we begin looking at the math from an entirely different perspective. Remember: the GMAT is a critical thinking test and not a math test. It is fun to watch the students’ expressions as we turn horrendous looking problems into simple, 20-second solutions, using a little bit of “mental gymnastics.”

What is your favorite quote?
The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.” (Gordon B. Hinckley) This quote certainly applies to how we approach the GMAT: it is not just super-geniuses who ace the GMAT. It takes a balanced, calculated approach – and it certainly takes work – but anybody can drastically improve their score. 

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
One of my students signed up for the Veritas Prep course, but he lived in Cedar City, UT – a distance of over 250 miles away. He made the commute to every class, studied hard, and ended up improving his GMAT score from a 430 to a 710 – a 280 point increase! He was always so appreciative. Several times throughout the class, he would pull me aside and say, “That was definitely worth the commute.”

Aaron was a great teacher.
Aaron was a great teacher. He knows great techniques that  will help you improve your GMAT score. Thanks to Veritas Prep and Aaron, I'm a second year MBA student at one of the nation’s top MBA programs  and already have a full time job offer for when I finish my second year. I recommend Veritas Prep and Aaron to all my friends.

I really could feel like he cared about each student
My teacher Aaron went out of his way and put in extra time and effort to make sure all my questions were answered. He took time in each class to make sure each student understood the concepts clearly and still moved at an appropriate pace.  I really could feel like he cared about each student, not just his contract with Veritas Prep.

I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.
Our instructor Aaron Pond is a great guy always concerned with each student in our individual needs. I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.

I love teaching Algebra.  I think it is a really fundamental skill, and mastering it can give students a significant leap forward in their Quant studies.  I have a degree in Mathematics and really enjoy working with others to help them feel more comfortable with math in general.

What is your favorite quote?
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master, if you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; if you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two impostors just the same.
- Excerpt from IF, by Rudyard Kipling

I believe that in order to be successful in life you need to be able to keep your head in the game and not fixate on how you are doing or performing.  Failure and success are a part of life and are temporary. It's all a journey and this quote reminds me to put my energy in to giving my best in all situations, to keep moving forward, and to never get caught up in a big win or loss.

Sara was great
She was very caring about the student's scores, she took the time to answer questions, and gave excellent overviews on the exam. I could not have had a better experience.

Sarah is such a great instructor
I think Sarah is such a great instructor and person. She genuinely cared about our preparation for the test and our post graduate school aspirations. I had to drive every weekend from Santa Barbara but I knew it would be worth it because Sarah never disappointed .

Created a great atmosphere for learning
Sara Boem was great. She cares about student's progress and would always make herself available if students had any concerns/issues outside of the night of class itself. All I can say is that she is very intelligent, created a great atmosphere for learning, and she is a great human being. I will recommend her to my friends and colleagues.

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!

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.

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.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote comes from Lou Holtz, a great American football coach: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. While this is really effective advice for leading a happy life in general, it's also particularly great advice for success on the GMAT - mistakes along the way are to be expected, but how you respond to those mistakes is what will make all the difference! 
 
What do you love about teaching?
I love being around others and challenging people to think differently, but what I love most about teaching the GMAT is being able to encourage students who are feeling frustrated or overwhelmed by the test. Having been through the entire process (and range of emotions) myself, it brings me a lot of joy to show students how to think like the testmaker and unlock their pattern-recognition potential!
