Cliff Smith has tutored over 500 students in over 30 countries and won the coveted Worldwide GMAT Instructor Of The Year award. He created all the instructional materials for the Veritas Prep Live Online GMAT courses, and is the voice behind the popular Veritas Prep On Demand self-study video lessons. After receiving his BS and MS from Northeastern, this New England native moved out to Northern California to earn his MBA at Stanford and never left. Though he clearly loves living in the Bay Area, he still speaks fondly of his childhood home, Lynn, Massachusetts, a city of 90,000 about 15 miles northeast of Boston. “Anyone in the North Shore of Boston knows the ditty ‘Lynn, Lynn, the city of sin; never go out the way you came in.’ But it was actually a really good place to grow up!”
 
When not helping students improve their GMAT scores and opportunities for the future, Cliff can most often be found playing music “semi-professionally” having played in 13 different bands last year alone. Proficient on the piano and euphonium (baritone horn), his primary love is for the trombone.

Real reviews

Working with Cliff was such a pleasure
Working with Cliff was such a pleasure - he really helped fill in the gaps for me and work to be very 'zen' as he called it, on the exam. His mix of encouragement and enthusiasm really made the process much less painful than it could've been -  I really enjoyed working through the problems with him. It worked! I went in prepared, and on the first try ...- 780/6.0 (up from sub 700 on practice exams taken independently). Just got the acceptance letter from Stanford GSB, and I know it wouldn't have been possible without Veritas Prep.
 
I would recommend him to anyone
Cliff Smith is an outstanding teacher. He was punctual and prepared in every meeting and always found a way to speak to all levels of understanding in the class. He also found a way to make mundane topics interesting and always had multiple extra tips and strategies for each topic. I would recommend him to anyone preparing for the GMAT.

Cliff was quietly passionate about the material.
Cliff was quietly passionate about the material. He made the course engaging through twelve 3-hour sessions. He taught with slides that were well designed and executed. He covered all of the course material and provided useful summar handouts. He knew hte material well, often providign alternative solutions to problems.

Kevin Richardson was born and raised in Philadelphia, so the man takes pride in his cheesesteak-making prowess. But...with all of the time he spent visiting family in North Carolina while he was growing up, he also knows his way around southern soul food. In case it’s not clear by now, Kevin loves to cook.  As in really loves to cook.  
 
Following his time in Palo Alto, Kevin put his education to work, building Soggy Paws, a Chicago-based chain of dog wash and pet product stores. Still dogless himself, he’s hoping to find the time for his own furry pal one of these days. “I move about too much to get a dog again just yet...but I plan to soon!” And when he’s not growing Soggy Paws (or cooking), his focus is on his GMAT students, teaching in a way he describes as “VERY interactive. I actually have the students teach the class.” And what do the students think? “Kevin has the ability to explain a concept at many different levels.  He can connect with the individual shooting for a 760 just as well as the one shooting for a 600.” An obvious recipe for success if we’ve ever heard one (sorry, we had to…)!

He truly cared how we were progressing
Where was Kevin during my high school and college courses? He engaged the class 2 nights a week for 3 hours by creating personal relationships with each one of us. He truly cared how we were progressing in our knowledge of the lessons and helped us each individually during breaks if he noticed we were lost. Class was great.

He took an individualized approach to each lesson
I can't say enough good things about Veritas Prep ... and especially Kevin. He took an individualized approach to each lesson once he had gotten to know each student's strengths and weaknesses. He gave me specific study advice on breaks and before/after class that really helped me.

I raised my GMAT score by 120 points within a month!
I had Kevin Richardson as my tutor.  With his help, I raised my GMAT score by 120 points within a month!  I took the regular Veritas Prep course about 1.5 years ago, but did not take the GMAT right after the course.  After 1.5 years, my skills became rusty, and that resulted in a disappointing score.  Kevin helped me by analyzing my skill-set and pointing out my fortes and my weaknesses. He then customized his teaching methods per my needs and built up my confidence along the way.  After being burned by the low score, it was important to have Kevin providing me with tips for each section and helping me to regain my confidence.  His teaching is easy to understand and right to the point.  For anyone considering a GMAT tutoring service. I would definitely recommend Kevin.

Having first taught the GMAT in 2001, Mark has a long history of helping students succeed on the test. He oversaw an early version of the Veritas Prep GMAT curriculum, immersing himself in quadratic equations, participial phrases, and logic diagrams for countless hours – a role he calls “the best job he ever had”. After attending UCLA Anderson and working in management consulting, Mark has returned to to Veritas Prep as one of our top instructors. What’s so attractive about teaching the GMAT? As Mark puts it, “Not only are you helping students attend business school and advance their professional lives, you’re also opening their minds to methods of logical problem-solving. It’s really rewarding to see students ‘get it’ and gain the confidence to succeed on the test.” Judging by outstanding student results over the years, their confidence has been well-placed!
