Real reviewsSara 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.

As the adage goes, “practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.” Hailey Cusimano has had the opportunity to apply this (and many other cliché sayings) to both the sports and GMAT world, ensuring her students are applying the necessary strategies to make their preparation effective and efficient.
Hailey emphasizes a strategy-driven approach to GMAT preparation, centered on the idea that every student’s learning style is different. With this approach, she has been able to coach hundreds of students around the world to success on the GMAT with study techniques, strategies, and content reinforcement processes that build critical-thinking skills and allow students to tackle even the toughest questions the GMAT has to offer.
When Hailey is not making a difference in her students’ GMAT studies, she can often be found making a difference in the nonprofit world – helping orphaned and abandoned wildlife at one of the animal sanctuaries or refuges she volunteers her time with as she works toward a nonprofit of her own.
Real reviewsI cannot thank Hailey enough
After a terrible night of sleep in anticipation of my second go at the GMAT, I scored a 720! I cannot thank Hailey enough for her patience, guidance, support, instruction, and advice. There's a zero chance I could have achieved this score without her.
Hailey was a fantastic tutor.
She has an extremely high level of expertise in GMAT math and was able to explain many of the problems in multiple ways until I really understood the concepts. I improved my Quant score by 9 points (38 to 47) and got a 730 overall (47 Q 44V). Could not have gotten my Quant in order nearly as fast or nearly as efficiently without Hailey's help.
There may be someone out there in the world who knows more about and cares more about the GMAT (and her students' performance on it) than Hailey. There's no question she can't answer, no explanation she can't make click, and no topic she doesn't seem to genuinely enjoy teaching.
Chris Kane is clearly someone who has always aspired to -- and conquered -- great heights. As a climbing guide for nearly a decade, Chris introduced hundreds of people to rock climbing and made notable ascents across North America, from El Capitan in Yosemite to remote big walls in Newfoundland. After joining Veritas Prep in 2004, Chris was quickly named Instructor of the Year for his engaging and demanding classes that have helped over 4000 students around the world reach their GMAT goals. In addition to his work as a veteran instructor, Chris plays a key role in curriculum development for Veritas Prep and is co-author of our GMAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT study guides.
In the classroom, Chris believes strongly in the wisdom put forth by Benjamin Franklin: Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. It’s a quote that has helped frame Chris’s teaching style – one that favors efficient problem solving over memorization. In Chris’s words: “The entire Veritas Prep curriculum has been developed around the concept of Learning by Doing, and the Ben Franklin quote captures exactly why we’ve done that. Rote learning is not an effective approach in education, and this is especially true when preparing for a reasoning and problem solving based test such as the GMAT.”
Real reviewsChris is a master of the GMAT material
My instructor, Chris Kane, was outstanding and helped me understand the different types of questions that the GMAT will use and the best ways to conquer these questions. I also did individual tutoring sessions with Chris and would highly recommend him. Chris knows how to teach complex subject matter to students. Chris knows all the different types of questions and strategies that the GMAT will throw at you. Choose Veritas Prep and Chris Kane.
I can confidently say that Chris is responsible for at least 100 points increase in my score. Amazing teacher!
Just an overall great instructor.
Chris Kane was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable in all facets of the GMAT and just an overall great instructor. The 12 books that are given are extremely helpful, especially the skillbuilder sections. I learned valuable techniques and strategies to assist with question approach and time management. It was an awesome experience that was very beneficial.
