Hear from Ryan

What is your favorite quote?
"When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."  This is especially true on a multiple choice test like the GMAT and GRE. 
 
What do you love about teaching?
I love working with students to help them gain new insights and achieve their own "Eureka!" moments.  It's awesome to watch the gears turning as we work through a problem, and then it finally clicks and they go, "Oh, right!  Now I get it!"--those are the moments that make teaching so rewarding and so much fun.

Real reviews

Made the class interesting, engaging
The instructor, Ryan McGorman, made the class interesting, engaging, and comfortable. Ryan made himself available before and after class in case anyone had additional questions and made sure that we were all participating and understanding the content.

Worth every penny.
Ryan provided the type of exemplary teaching and care you would hope fore / expect from a program that costs as much as Veritas :) Worth every penny.

Many, many thanks to Ryan.
Ryan McGorman was my instructor in a 6-week classroom course. He was wonderful. He was encouraging and realistic about the test. He gave excellent feedback and created a positive atmosphere. Many, many thanks to Ryan.
 


George Yates

Hear from George

What is your favorite Veritas Prep lesson to teach?
Data Sufficiency.  Data Sufficiency is tough because it is unlike anything most of our students have seen before.  Half the battle is just learning how it works, the structure of the madness that is data sufficiency.  Then there is the added treat of the YES/NO variation where NO is sufficient.  I think our books do a great job of showing how these work, and then showing how changing just a word here or there can completely change the answer.  It is a great lesson to show how it is details, and not math necessarily that is being tested.
 
What is your favorite quote?
George Carlin: "Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience."

Real reviews

I wish he was my teacher for each and every high school class.
George is the man! I wish he was my teacher for each and every high school class. His methodologies and ability to parallel concepts to myself and the other student in my course is second to none (I had 5 high schools and two different college experiences so I can say this with confidence). I would definitely recommend him to others without a doubt!

He has a strong understanding of the GMAT
George is very thoughtful and intelligent. He has a strong understanding of the GMAT and the quirks that go with each section of the test. I would definitely recommend the Veritas Prep course, and George as a teacher.

George is the best instructor I've ever had.

I have learned so much from him in this short period of time
Mark is extremely smart and one of the most humble and down-to-earth teachers I have ever had.  He really took the time to explain everything. (even the most simple terms) I have learned so much from him in this short period of time and I would recommend him to everyone.

Please give him a raise
Mark is a wizard regarding GMAT tricks and having him has helped advance my mediocre skills greatly. Please give him a raise, he is a top notch instructor.

I definitely recommend him
Mark is a great instructor and I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an instructor to go through the GMAT materials in a short period of time with the best result. He covers all the important topics in GMAT and does not hesitate to spend extra time on explaining any questions or unknowns. THANK YOU MARK for making our GMAT course so much fun and helpful.


Andrew Brotzman

Hear from Andrew

What do you love about teaching? 
 Helping people change their lives. When students make the decision to enroll in one of our classes, they're making an effort to better themselves and gain entry to the best possible program, and I love helping them reach that goal.
 
Which is your favorite lesson to teach? 
Algebra. The use of variables on the test seems complicated at first but can be unlocked with just a few simple tips, which can make a huge difference in people's scores.

Hear from Sara

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
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

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 .

 


Ravi Sreerama

Education:

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!

I would highly recommend Bill to any future student.
Bill Robinson was an OUTSTANDING instructor! He was available anytime for extra help and he really cared about our class performing well on the gmat. I would highly recommend Bill to any future student.

I cannot express how awesome he is.
I have ZERO feedback for Bill. As much as I appreciate constructive criticism, I cannot provide Bill with any. He is an amazing instructor and easy to talk to who finds ways of explaining GMAT type logic through various ways. Bill should be a highly valued instructor with Veritas. I cannot express how awesome he is.


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, 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).

JD, University of Michigan


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.

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.
