Hailey Cusimano Reviews

Company: Veritas Prep

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.

Neither standardized tests nor private tutoring has ever been activities I have much enjoyed in the past. Standardized tests have always given me anxiety because no matter how much I study, I still feel unprepared come test today. Additionally, I had not had the best experiences with private tutoring in undergrad as I often felt that my tutors came off a bit condescending and were not invested in me to succeed; I was just another student.

Working with Hailey was the EXACT opposite experience. From day one I felt Hailey truly cared about my success and was invested in seeing me reach my goals. She helped me understand that the strategy behind the GMAT wasn't just memorizing material and that I needed to think critically about how to handle each question before me. Additionally, she helped me get my time management significantly under control!

When we first started out working she told me "to work smarter not harder," and all of our subsequent time together was her ensuring my practice followed that mindset. Working with Hailey was truly a wonderful experience!

Working with Hailey was one of the biggest reasons that I was able to hit my target score on the GMAT. Each time I met with Hailey, she gave me the sense that she remembered my strengths and weaknesses intimately, which I really grew to appreciate. Her approach to working with students is positive, focused, patient, and nonjudgmental. Hailey is extremely adept at balancing strategic instruction with letting a student struggle through challenging problems and is capable of explaining both test-taking tactics and individual questions with no condescension whatsoever. When I started studying with Hailey, I had no study plan, no strategy for test day, and in hindsight, no hope of getting the score I wanted. Without her coaching and guidance, I simply would not have achieved my goals.
