Hear from SaraWhich 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.
Real reviewsSara was great
She was very caring about the students 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.

Hear from RyanWhat 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 reviewsMade 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.
Hear from BillWhich 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 reviewsCrazy 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.
