Hear from MarkIf you weren’t teaching the GMAT, what would you be teaching instead?
If I were not teaching the GMAT, I'd spend time teaching a young border collie everything I know. Ever met a border collie? They pick up on everything.

One good thing about music: when it hits, you feel no pain. -- Bob Marley
Something similar happens when you hit your target GMAT score. No pain. On to bigger and better things. Celebrate. Earn it.
Real reviewsI 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.

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.
