Andrew G.

Andrew received his MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management in 2015. Andrew prepared for the GMAT on his own and scored a 740 (97th percentile) on the first try. In the last six years, before beginning his MBA and while a student, he has helped scores of men and women prepare for the GMAT and GRE and get into the schools of their dreams. He teaches the quantitative or verbal concepts themselves (e.g. ratios, geometry, algebra, idioms, analogies, verb tenses) as well as general strategies (e.g. reading the answers first, backsolving, choosing numbers, time management, and, when all else fails, intelligent guessing). On each question he encourages his students to look for takeaways that are applicable to a wider range of problems.  Although familiar with a wide range of materials, he generally uses the books from a certain test prep provider, whose online tests provide a lot of data on student performance. Andrew is adept at helping students analyze this data to better their time management and test-taking strategies.
