Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

Our instructor was excellent - he somehow made sentence correction and combinatorics fun - it was a pleasure attending class twice a week. After completing the course, I was able to score a 710 on the GMAT.
-Michael P.

CURRICULUM

I was overwhelmed with how to study before taking the class, and now I feel like I know exactly what comes naturally and which areas I need to focus on.
-Justine S.

RESOURCES

My experience with Veritas was phenomenal. The material they sent me prior to the course was thorough and taught me a lot. Plus my instructor kept the class fun and exciting.
-Trim R.

RETAKE

I just can't see how another test prep course could be more complete. Also the ability to retake the course within a year is an incredible bonus.
-Anna D.

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


Education:
BBA, University of Michigan
MA, University of Michigan
Brian launches into a monologue explaining why the Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian would do well on standardized tests: “The way he notices little things, fixates on them, and won’t let them go. He’d be a master of GMAT Data Sufficiency or GRE Quantitative Comparison. '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, Testmaker. Pretty, pretty, pretty good trick you tried to get me with.’”

The University of Michigan graduate received his Master’s in Education and has studied the GMAT full-time since 2006, when he joined Veritas Prep as the Director of Academic Programs (he’s since stepped up to Chief Academic Officer).  As someone who competes as an Ironman and also occasionally takes the stage as a stand-up comedian, Brian does bring an energetic, entertaining, and extremely effective style to his teaching. And he’s probably one of the few people (ever) to have scored a 99th percentile GMAT score and have his own NBA Championship ring. To quote a past student of Brian’s: “Brian was a real pro and it was easy to see that he really cared about the quality and usefulness of the class.  The materials he passed out were very structured and succinct. Everything he went over had a purpose, so you really get value in the time you invest.”

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 graduate school 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.

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

Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not
I paid for 28 hours of online tutoring with Veritas Prep. I was assigned David Newland as my instructor. It was the best money I could have spent. Within six weeks of working with David, I scored 770 and 760 on the GMAT Prep Software PP1 and PP2 tests. On the real exam I scored 700 (90%), comprising Quant 47 (73%) and Verbal 39 (88%). The drop between the PP tests and the real test was mostly due to nerves and bad time management on the day. Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not given I only had six weeks to prepare. David was excellent. With 8+ years of GMAT experience he knows how to solve every question the test can throw at you. He explained methodology in a clear and easy to apply fashion. He was also flexible and we could frequently schedule sessions on short notice.

This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out
Got so lucky to get David Newland as my instructor. I went into the course more confident in quant, and David is a verbal expert, specifically in Critical Reasoning. This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out, which was helpful since I had never taken the exam before. I could hear his voice inside my head as I did practice problems and during the actual GMAT.

David was excellent.
The instructor David was excellent. I found that he took the time to explain each section properly and in easy to understand language. I very much enjoyed this course and would recommend it to any one with a very hectic schedule.
