Here is a sample of the episodes you can choose:

reading-comprehensive

Reading Comprehension Basics: Structural Reading

What's the story? There's so much information in reading comp passages that getting the gist can be difficult. But GMAT authors use keywords that give away what's most important. Learn to read for points, not details.

math reading icon

Solving Word Problems

You never want to have points get lost in translation. Word problems can feel unwieldy without practice, so join us to hone your ability to translate words into math.

Yes/No Data Sufficiency

Yes/No Data Sufficiency questions provide different challenges from Value DS questions. In this session we'll practice Yes/No questions so you can learn how to best manage the nuances of this question type.

Argument Structure: Identifying Assumptions

GMAT arguments are surprisingly predictable. This session provides practice in breaking down arguments into their conclusion and evidence, as well as in finding the assumptions that are central to most CR question types.

what you'll learn icon

Backsolving and Number Sense: How to use Answer Choices

Join this session to learn to take advantage of the options that the answer choices give you in approaching a problem. We'll reinforce the value of Backsolving and practice using the choices in other creative ways.

Inference and Explain Questions in Critical Reasoning

Assumptions are central to most Critical Reasoning question types, but not all. Join us in this session to practice attacking Inference and Explain questions, two question types that do not require finding an assumption.

Integrated Reasoning: Multi-Source Reasoning

Integrated Reasoning is becoming increasingly important to business school admissions officers. Join this session to practice the Multi-Source Reasoning IR question type.

OUR INSTRUCTORS

Meet our teachers

We know that amazing teaching is about more than knowing the material. Our teachers are committed, captivating instructors who work with students to find their best path to success.

Get to know some of our instructors.

Only the best

Fewer than 1 out of 10 candidates qualify to teach for us, and every one of our teachers scored above the 90th percentile on the test they teach. That makes Kaplan more selective than many top universities.

And every Kaplan teacher is rated on how caring they are with students. It’s how we ensure our students aren’t just getting an information download – they’re making a connection.

Favorite Topic to Teach: My favorite section to teach is the Quantitative section, but I still love to teach Reading Comprehension and Sentence Correction.
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: My favorite type of student to teach is the kind of student who just wants to get the work done. Students who focus on the Kaplan methods and strategies to raise their scores are always a pleasure to have in class.
Best Advice for Students: I advise any student preparing for the GMAT to take stock of his or her strengths and weaknesses. Then, it's vital to learn patterned approaches to every type of GMAT question. Also, during the test, the key to success is knowing which questions are in your wheelhouse and which questions are best for guessing: Expert use of time is the key to success.

Well, outside of Kaplan, I am a member of the startup team for a new digital content creation and fan engagement platform that will be released sometime soon. I oversee content editing for the platform and am a member of its creative marketing team.

I'm also a film and TV critic and the co-founder and creative director of an upcoming podcast network. Plus, I know how to say the Pledge of Allegiance in Latin. It was a tradition at my high school. Can you believe that?

Favorite Topic to Teach: I love them all, but any kind of advanced quant is the best.
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: Advanced students for sure. :) I talk fast and like to get in deep with questions and test-taking strategy, both of which incline advanced students to click with me.
Best Advice for Students: Have a positive attitude toward the test prep experience and toward your own mistakes. Students who resent having to take the GMAT and who beat themselves up every time they get a problem wrong quickly run out of emotional stamina and don't get much out of the time they invest in studying. By contrast, students who let their competition do all the griping and grumbling quickly get a leg up. Look at the GMAT as an opportunity to learn and/or sharpen skills that will help you in b-school. When you screw up, don't get mad—get excited that you screwed up in practice, not on Test Day! Every mistake you make now is one you won't make on the one day mistakes actually count.

Favorite Topic to Teach: All of them, but mostly Quant and Verbal.
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: Students who are open to learning shortcuts to help boost their score, even if it means abandoning old ways of thinking.
Best Advice for Students: Treat every problem you do as a learning opportunity, and your biggest mistakes will turn out to be the biggest learning opportunities.

I never met a pun I didn't like. A good pun is its own reward. Outside of work, I like to travel, play the electric guitar, perform magic, and spend time with my family (especially my 4-year-old daughter). Oh, and I'm fluent in Russian.

Favorite Topic to Teach: Anything Verbal, but especially Sentence Correction.
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: My favorite type of student is eager to change his/her habits to improve. It's easy to rely on old, bad habits: those habits are often familiar and comfortable. Mastering a new approach takes practice and determination, but it's worth the effort. Students who are stubborn about the way they've always done things will struggle to improve. Students who are willing to try new, more effective approaches will change their outcomes.
Best Advice for Students: Have the courage to change! Many students come to class and do the homework but continue to use the same flawed methods. Change your approach to change your outcome.

I took four years of Classical Latin as an undergrad, and I still use it. I love to spend time with my family. I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, cooking gourmet meals, and pairing them with wine.

Favorite Topic to Teach: Critical Reasoning
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: I love working with students who believe that they can't do math or that they can't do certain kinds of math. It's incredibly rewarding to help students see that, with the right tricks and methods, you can do this!
Best Advice for Students: Work hard, but have fun, too! While you should absolutely take the GMAT seriously, if you don't let yourself see the lighter side of things as well, you risk burning out.

I am a trained opera singer, and while I'm a bit rusty, I still love to sing whenever I can (much to the consternation of my family). I am an avid reader and a frequent baker of breads and goodies. I am also a triathlete who loves the bike and the open swim but despises the run. And I am an attorney with a background that includes both legal practice and corporate and law firm management—so I have an interesting perspective on the unique career paths that can lead students to business.

Favorite Topic to Teach: Quant, Critical Reasoning, Sentence Correction, IR, and AWA
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: High-scoring students who want to score even higher!
Best Advice for Students: Stay laser-focused on trying to learn and remember something from every question you attempt. Use the Quiz Bank to practice on lots of questions.

Outside of work, I like to read, watch movies and documentaries, play poker, have BBQs in my backyard. And I actually use GMAT skills in the real world (to play poker and pick good investments).

Favorite Topic to Teach: I love teaching Quant, because I considered math my big weakness for years, until I had the right teachers.
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: Those who are willing to recognize mistakes as the only way to get better at something and strive to learn from them. It would be great if every student could take the GMAT once and be done with it. But I have real admiration for students who take the test, realize they have more work to do, and come back and do it. That tenacity spells success, whether it takes the student from a 400 to a 570, or from a 550 to a 710!
Best Advice for Students: Be prepared to work really hard, and always take the time to reflect on your performance.

I have two teenage daughters...so I rely on yoga and good reads to keep me sane.

Favorite Topic to Teach: Data sufficiency, which is the question type on the GMAT that's both most amenable to and requiring of a strategic approach. I love it when students realize that they can get DS questions right while avoiding actually doing math!
Favorite Type of Student to Teach: Math-phobes. That may sound a bit insane, but the emotional payoff is huge when students who always considered themselves bad at math finally understand how GMAT math works and exactly what they need to do (and what they need NOT to do) to crush the quant section.
Best Advice for Students: Don't fall into the trap of being content-obsessed. Instead, make sure you study a mix of content, strategy, and time management.

I'm a recovering lawyer—I used to be a commercial litigator—who decided that I love teaching more than lawyering! When I'm not in the classroom, I can often be found playing ultimate frisbee, which I started to play back in 1991 during law school in Vancouver, before it was cool. :)
