Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
There are a number of great Veritas Prep lessons, but the Arithmetic lesson is probably my favorite to teach. It’s just a fantastic chance to grab people right out of the gate and hit them over the head with the value of new approaches and new ways of thinking about problems. It’s great to be able to show people that math on the GMAT isn’t really about grinding harder or being a genius. It’s about understanding what’s really important and then combining that realization with a skill set that every prospective MBA student is capable of possessing. And that’s before we hit you with the factors/number theory stuff and really blow your mind. It’s exciting stuff, and at the end of that lesson, I always wish we had a couple more hours to keep doing questions.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
Once upon a time, I had a student, Rachel, gain 230 points. She took every bit of advice I gave seriously, did every piece of work we asked, came into every lesson with specific and well-considered questions, and generally proved to be a model student. Once the course was over, we scheduled a few hours of individual tutoring. Rachel brought in charts of wrong answers broken down along multiple dimensions and was able to articulate precise areas of need for improvement. A couple of tutoring sessions in, she hit 750 on a practice test. We actually canceled a remaining tutoring session so that she could take the real thing ASAP. In the end, Rachel went from a 510 to a 740 after the Veritas Prep course and about five hours of one-on-one tutoring time. There’s just nothing better about being a tutor than hearing amazing news from a delighted student. It’s my singular goal every time I teach.

Anthony is a fantastic teacher!
Anthony is a fantastic teacher! He is not only great at getting the concepts across, but also changing the way you think about numbers and logic in general.  He changed the way I will add, subtract, and multiply for the rest of my life! You can tell by the way he talks and teaches that he genuinely cares about his students and our success.

He always went above and beyond
My instructor, Anthony Ritz, was absolutely amazing. He is very knowledgeable on the test material and takes pride in making sure each class member understands each problem type. He has an endless book of tricks that he is able to articulate in a very easy to remember way. I emailed and instant messaged him many times during the week, outside of class, and he was always quick to respond with multiple ways to look at problems that were confusing me. He always went above and beyond to ensure that everyone was clear on what was going to be tested. He always offered to stay late to review any additional problems that may be confusing.

You never feel like your time is being wasted.
I took a 6 week GMAT course with Anthony Ritz and was so impressed by the professionalism of Veritas instructors. Anthony is one of those super-humans, who received perfect scores on every standardized test from the LSAT to the GMAT to the GRE. My past experience with SAT tutors was to stay away from the wiz kids because they didn't know how to teach/translate their genius, but Anthony does. His lessons were content rich, but contained added bonuses like calculation shortcuts and tricks to approaching problems. Anthony edited many of the Veritas books, so his familiarity with them is impressive. He knows exactly which problems are most challenging so he cherry picks the best examples to work through in class. You never feel like your time is being wasted.

What is your favorite lesson to teach?
My favorite lesson to teach is data sufficiency. Everyone learns something in data sufficiency! Everyone has that “aha moment” that I love. Some people come to the lesson with a big fear of data sufficiency and I am able to give them the tools to build their confidence. Some people come in thinking that they know everything about data sufficiency and are shocked by how much they actually learn during that lesson. It really is a metaphor for all of the other sections of the GMAT, it is not just what you know, it is how you play the game and data sufficiency is all about learning to play the game. What can be more fun than that? 

If you were not teaching the GMAT what would you be teaching instead?
If I were not teaching the GMAT I would be a coach. In fact I think of what I do for Veritas Prep as coaching. Like a sports coach or a vocal coach, or even a life coach, a GMAT coach is doing more than conveying content. 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!

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.

What do you love about teaching?
Making a difference. Sometimes it's big, sometimes it's small. But in the end, you're always making a difference. And when you see your students achieve that success, you can't help but feel proud that you played a part in that process.

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
The Chef! I learned on the first day of class that he was a high-school dropout who never went to college. So, I pulled him aside during a break and I told him that he would have to change his attitude if he wanted to achieve success with the GMAT. He was going to have to listen to me instead of those demons from his past. But if he could not do that, he should walk out right then and there. Fortunately, he said that he would try - which is all I could truly ask at that point. Over the following weeks, I motivated him to work hard and he succeeded... in a big way, ultimately scoring 760 and getting into INSEAD!

Apart from his great teaching style, he kept the class motivated.
I took some of these trials with other companies and I can say I was easily bored after 1 hour. But not on Ravi's class. Apart from his great teaching style, he kept the class motivated. He made me try harder on each question one after the other. He reached out to everyone in the class and made sure that we understood where we did wrong and what we could do to avoid mistakes and I think that was the most important thing. He made sure everyone was satisfied at the end of the class and the show up to the classes represented that. It was a very dynamic class with everyone helping each other out and some of us are still in touch, helping each other with GMAT problems.

Ravi was easily one of the best teachers I have ever had.
I have never learned more from any other class I have taken in my history as a student. Ravi was easily one of the best teachers I have ever had. Ravi knew the ins and outs of every problem and explained his reasoning extremely well. I wouldn't recommend any other course or teacher if you are preparing to take the GMAT.

Ravi makes the GMAT looks so much more approachable.
As an international student non-native speaker, I was having a hard time with the verbal session - more specifically with the Sentence Correction. But after taking Ravi's classes, Sentence Correction became my favorite topic in the Verbal session. It's amazing how Ravi makes the GMAT looks so much more approachable. The way he teaches and explains all the GMAT stuffs is spectacular.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote comes from Lou Holtz, a great American football coach: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. While this is really effective advice for leading a happy life in general, it's also particularly great advice for success on the GMAT - mistakes along the way are to be expected, but how you respond to those mistakes is what will make all the difference! 
 
What do you love about teaching?
I love being around others and challenging people to think differently, but what I love most about teaching the GMAT is being able to encourage students who are feeling frustrated or overwhelmed by the test. Having been through the entire process (and range of emotions) myself, it brings me a lot of joy to show students how to think like the testmaker and unlock their pattern-recognition potential!

Which is your favorite lesson to teach?
That one is easy. Arithmetic. Students often think that a lesson called “Arithmetic” will not even be worth their time, until we begin looking at the math from an entirely different perspective. Remember: the GMAT is a critical thinking test and not a math test. It is fun to watch the students’ expressions as we turn horrendous looking problems into simple, 20-second solutions, using a little bit of “mental gymnastics.”

What is your favorite quote?
The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.” (Gordon B. Hinckley) This quote certainly applies to how we approach the GMAT: it is not just super-geniuses who ace the GMAT. It takes a balanced, calculated approach – and it certainly takes work – but anybody can drastically improve their score. 

What is your favorite Veritas Prep success story?
One of my students signed up for the Veritas Prep course, but he lived in Cedar City, UT – a distance of over 250 miles away. He made the commute to every class, studied hard, and ended up improving his GMAT score from a 430 to a 710 – a 280 point increase! He was always so appreciative. Several times throughout the class, he would pull me aside and say, “That was definitely worth the commute.”

Aaron was a great teacher.
Aaron was a great teacher. He knows great techniques that  will help you improve your GMAT score. Thanks to Veritas Prep and Aaron, I'm a second year MBA student at one of the nation’s top MBA programs  and already have a full time job offer for when I finish my second year. I recommend Veritas Prep and Aaron to all my friends.

I really could feel like he cared about each student
My teacher Aaron went out of his way and put in extra time and effort to make sure all my questions were answered. He took time in each class to make sure each student understood the concepts clearly and still moved at an appropriate pace.  I really could feel like he cared about each student, not just his contract with Veritas Prep.

I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.
Our instructor Aaron Pond is a great guy always concerned with each student in our individual needs. I haven't seen an instructor as well prepared as he is.


Education: BA, Stanford
What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is one by Benjamin Franklin on education: Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. The entire Veritas Prep curriculum has been developed around the concept of Learning by Doing, and this quote captures exactly why we have done that. Rote memorization and rote learning are not effective approaches in education, and this is especially true when preparing for a reasoning and problem solving based test such as the GMAT.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest life accomplishment remains the first time I climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. Although I had already been an active rock-climber while in high school on the coast of Maine, I was not prepared for the intimidating scale of Yosemite's huge granite walls when I moved to California to attend Stanford.  The first time I climbed there, I stood at the base of El Cap and thought I would never in my life climb this amazing piece of rock. One year later, after 4 days on the wall, I pulled onto the summit of El Cap, exhausted and elated; even though I have gone on to do many harder and more committing climbs, nothing will ever compare to the sense of accomplishment I felt that day.

Chris 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.

Amazing teacher!
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.
