Why you’ll love Veritas Prep:

INSTRUCTORS

I literally could not have asked for a better teacher. I have no idea where they pulled this guy out of, but most likely from a magician's hat. The dude is a wizard, and better than were most of my teachers at Harvard
-Niko H.

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

Veritas has a plethora of great resources to help you outside the classroom. I really appreciate the timed homework problems that not only cover the material you just learned, but also help you look at pacing as well.
-Kelsey D.

RETAKE

Veritas has pleasantly surpassed my high expectations. Retaining a full year of online resources and the privilege to retake the course at a later time has proven immeasurably valuable to my journey.
-Jim S.

Sara Boehm can attribute that honor to her passions for higher education and for helping others. Having been valedictorian at Centre College, where she earned degrees in Economics and Mathematics, Sara earned her MBA at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated with honors. Nowadays in Los Angeles, she teaches for Veritas Prep by night and by day serves as founder/CEO of Essential Engagement Services, a company that guides families through relocation. Sara knows about the impacts of moving as a child first hand, having moved to a different school every year from the 6th through the 10th grade. Fortunately you won’t need to relocate to benefit from Sara’s classes: as a Live Online instructor, you'll be lucky to experience her world class teaching from wherever you are in the world!

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. 


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.


Education: BS,Truman State University | MA, History & Education, Truman State University | JD, University of Michigan
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.
