Dan Patreterno

Education:
JD/MBA, York


Hear from Dan

Which is your favorite lesson to teach? I like to use the geometry class to get people thinking outside the box. A lot of people make it through high school by clinging to formulas. But that only gets you so far. The real world doesn't give you these clean and organized problems, and neither does the GMAT. That's why I get people thinking on their feet. It's not just about the answer, it's about how you see the question. And knowing these deeper insights, it actually makes things easier. You can run circles around the type of person who just memorizes the answers. My secret mission is to make people into better thinkers, in all situations.
 
If you could teach any one person about the GMAT, who would it be and why? Well, I'm a hip hop fan. And a while back, I once heard 50 Cent say that if he had the choice he would have gone to business school. And now he'll never need to... But if he decided to go for it I'd gladly coach him for the GMAT. And I don't even say that as a fan. If I wanted to just be a fan, there are other rappers who are higher on my list. But 50 stands out specifically for business. He has the right mind. Even without the formal education. I also like the idea that people might doubt if that's possible. Don't underestimate how important perseverance is. Curtis Jackson, MBA. He could do it. TRUST me.

Dan was a great teacher
Dan was a great teacher and very personable. He also always makes himself available for extra help.

Would highly recommend Dan to anyone
Dan was a great instructor. Extremely knowledgeable, happy to stay late or answer emails anytime to answer questions and was extremely helpful in finding areas I could improve on and suggesting appropriate strategies. Would highly recommend Dan to anyone thinking about taking a Veritas course or any GMAT prep course in general.

Clear and articulate in explaining the subject matter.
Dan was very helpful in answering all my queries and helping me understand the subject matter thoroughly. He answered all my emails and was clear and articulate in explaining the subject matter.

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!

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.

Ravi Sreerama

Education:
BS, UC Berkeley
JD, USC
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.

Bill Robinson

Education:
BS, Nebraska


Hear from Bill

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
Data Sufficiency. I actually find the "logic puzzle" element to be pretty interesting, so I love sharing that with my students.  It's a problem type that tends to baffle almost everyone at first; being able to shed light on how it works and how to beat it is extremely rewarding.
      
Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
Dexter Morgan from 'Dexter'.  He's brilliant, thorough, perceptive, and clever.  "Thinking like the testmaker" would come naturally to him.  Also, his dad seems pretty sharp, so having an extra voice in his head on those tricky Data Sufficiency questions would be handy.  

If you weren’t teaching the GMAT, What would you be teaching instead?
Probably the LSAT.  Reasoning has always been a strong suit of mine, and who wouldn't want to talk about logic games for a living?  Okay, pretty much everyone but me. 

Real reviews

Crazy brilliant and very approachable
A big shout out (do people still say that anymore?) to my instructor Bill. Crazy brilliant and very approachable, always arrived to class early to help me with the homework and frequently stayed hours afterwards to walk us through the questions. My test is next week and I would not be as confident walking into this if it wasn't for Bill and the very encouraging staff at Veritas Prep. Thank you very much!

Bill is an extremely smart teacher who really understood the GMAT
Veritas Prep made learning the content simple and easy to understand while showing us how the GMAT tests the content. Bill is an extremely smart teacher who really understood the GMAT and was also able to teach the course in a way that allowed those of us who are less gifted to improve. If you want to improve your score take this course!

Steffi Spear

Education:
BS, UCLA
MSA, University of Illinois


Hear from Steffi

What is your favorite quote?
"Only fools are positive."  Don't take it as negative, it's not!  I heard it in a movie as a kid (Fern Gully, anyone??) and it just stuck.  For me, it just reminds me to never just assume I'm right and to keep questioning things.  And it's even kind of applicable to the GMAT - just think of all those Data Sufficiency questions you think you've got figured out, only to find you didn't think them all the way through!

Which TV character would ace the GMAT?
Dr. Temperance Brennan, aka Bones.  SUPER logical (arguably to a fault), intelligent, and persistent, and when it comes down to it, the GMAT is all about applying both your knowledge and those logical reasoning skills to work through a beast of a test.

Which subject did you most struggle with in school, and how did you overcome it?
My worst subject TO THIS DAY is spelling.  I can't spell to save my life.  I rely heavily on spell check, and I lose every time I play Scrabble.  Fortunately, I've learned ways to work around it - in school I just put a little extra effort into vocab, and now it's come to Google, dictionaries, those persistent red squiggly lines - and by being incredibly diligent when it comes to my tendency to write the same word spelled three different ways within two lines, I've found I can help myself overcome my lack of spelling abilities.  I also went into accounting, so hopefully it won't be much of an issue anyway.

Steffi truly had great teaching skills
My instructor, Steffi, truly had great teaching skills, and knew the material well. Specifically, her background as an educator and knowledge of how to break down the material in a honest thoughtful way, made the class worthwhile.

Steffi was great at showing us the tricks that the GMAT throws at students.
I would definitely recommend her for other students.

Chris Kane

Education:
BA, Stanford


Hear from Chris

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.

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.

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.

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).

Hear from Rich

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
Gotta be Walter White (a.k.a. Heisenberg) from Breaking Bad. As morally reprehensible as he is, one can't deny that he's an inveterate and adaptive problem solver.  And as a chemistry Ph.D. and erstwhile proprietor of a technology firm, his quantitative prowess is beyond reproach.

Ron Awad

Education:
BSc, McGill
MBA, Concordia


Hear from Ron

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
My favorite class to teach is Advanced Verbal, which is lesson 9 in the curriculum. We cover advanced concepts in Critical Reasoning, Sentence Correction and Reading Comprehension, all in the same class. I find that's really the class where we lay bare the GMAT's entire verbal strategy, how the exam tries to trip you up. In football terms, it's the equivalent of having Bill Belichick's "alleged" Spygate tapes a few weeks before test day. You've got the whole playbook at your fingertips. On game day, you may not necessarily win by 4 touchdowns, but you won't be blindsided by much.

What is your favorite quote?
I believe I've successfully propagated a quote I heard attributed to Veritas Prep's own Bill Robinson that "the less math I do, the better I am at math". Math on the GMAT is so frequently about logic that I may start a petition for a name change. Often the exam questions contain portions such as is 4/7 > 26/53. Before you start trying to put them both on a common denominator (371, FYI), recognize that 4/7 is more than half while 26/53 isn't. Little differences can make the difference between getting the question right in 1 minute and getting the question right in 15 seconds.

Which movie/TV character would do best on the GMAT and why?
Tyrion Lannister would ace the GMAT, if such a thing existed in Westeros. While the older Jamie was known as the attractive one, Tyrion was undoubtedly the clever brother. In season 2 of the TV show Game of Thrones, Tyrion wasn't sure who he could trust, so he told three separate stories to three different advisors and then waited to see which story would get leaked to the queen. Using this cunning ruse, Tyrion could quickly ascertain who he could trust and who would be sent to the dungeon. The same logical approach will demystify critical reasoning traps as well as data sufficiency questions. You may not be the king of the seven kingdoms, but you'll be the king of the GMAT.
