Check me out on GMAT Club and r/GMAT for free GMAT prep advice.

Did you know that GMAT Club is a helpful resource for free GMAT preparation? I have maintained an active profile on the site since 2015, with over 1,000 posts and 2,000 "kudos" earned as of July 2023. 

Unlike many other well-known GMAT tutors who claim high scores but offer zero proof, I have also utilized GMAT Club's proprietary score verification system (green checkmarks above) to verify my own GMAT subscores of Q50 / V47, as well as my perfect score of 340 on the GRE.

I continue to post and comment occasionally on other social media websites such as Reddit, using alternate accounts — my original "SkypeTutor" account with over 75,000 karma and 300 Reddit awards was suspended in 2021, due to false reports filed by envious employees of competing test-prep companies, including the moderators of other popular test-prep subreddits.

I'm a 40 year-old Harvard grad & professional GMAT tutor.  I graduated college in 2002, but didn't start taking the GMAT until 2012.  Since then I have taken the GMAT 6 times and scored 700, 710, 730, 730, 750 and 770.  AMA.
