I am passionate about instilling the knowledge, skills, and confidence that people need to achieve their dreams. For over two decades, I have helped thousands surpass their goals, and I look forward to doing the same for you!

My motto is Labor Omnia Vincit (Latin for "Work Conquers All"). It mirrors my belief that any goal can be accomplished via guided effort. I am passionate about instilling the knowledge, skills, and confidence that people need to achieve their dreams. For over two decades, I have helped thousands surpass their goals, and I look forward to doing the same for you!

TEST PREP CREDENTIALS:
I scored in the 99th percentile (i.e. the highest possible score) of every standardized test I have taken, including GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, and IQ test. I was a Gates Millennium Scholar and St. Petersburg Times Scholar at Duke University, where I attained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Neuroscience. I also conducted research at Duke's Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. I taught and tutored GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, PSAT, SAT Subject Tests, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, PCAT, and academics at Kaplan Test Prep for 10 years. I also co-authored a Kaplan ASVAB guide book.

ADMISSIONS AND CAREER COACHING CREDENTIALS:
I am the founder and CEO of Omnia Training and Consulting. I am an International Coach Federation (ICF) Professional Coach as well as a Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Certified Coach. Managing admissions interviews for all applicants from the Philippines as Chairman of Duke University's Alumni Admissions Advisory Committee grants me deep insight into the admissions process.

LOCATION AND AVAILABILITY:
I meet online in Wyzant's virtual classroom, which has video, audio, chat, whiteboards, screen-sharing, and recording. You may view availability at consultomnia.com/calendar

PRINCIPLE OF TEACHING:
Mastery of concepts is necessary, but not sufficient in a tutor. A good tutor must also be able to teach those concepts in a way that anyone can understand. My psychology and neuroscience background enables me to assess each student's individual learning style. I leverage my professional coaching experience to tailor the lessons and strategies to meet the unique needs of each student.

Highly recommended SAT English tutor

My daughter took lessons with Brad on SAT reading and writing. She has made big progress. Brad has extensive experience on the materials. He helped my daughter on the subjects she needed to work on and wrote super detailed notes after each lesson. He is also someone very easily to work with. My daughter generally warms up with strangers slowly. But she got along with Brad almost immediately and is quite excited to take his lessons. I highly recommend Brad as a SAT English tutor!

Knowledgeable Tutor

1st session with Brad. He was able to answer all of my questions proficiently and assist me in coming up with a strategy for my needs. Looking forward to the next session

Knowledgeable and patient

Brad explained to my son different strategies to help him succeed with the SHSAT. He was patient and worked with him in the areas where he had some gaps in understanding the questions. He will continue to work with him on other strategies for Math and ELA.

Great SSAT tutor

As a middle class family, the rate was not something we could comfortably afford. However after meeting with Mr. Brad for a consultation, even my 10 years old son knew he will have a great test result if he has Mr. Brad. My son is learning something I didn’t learn until high school, from a SAT prep tutor, and much more. My son tried somewhat affordable top tutor before but the time was spent reviewing. Mr. Brad focuses on tips and strategies. Even though my son hasn’t taken his SSAT test yet I know he will do well. Most importantly Mr. Brad is extremely kind and patient.

Sophisticated Test Taking Tutor that I am Looking For

Having knowledge does not mean having strong test-taking skills. I am only looking for a strong test taker (in addition to being very experienced in teaching) to be my tutor. I am excited to learn more from Brad and I can't wait to implement the game plan Brad made for me to achieve the scores I want.

Yongzheng, 10 lessons with Brad

Great first session!

We discussed how to approach the writing portion of the GRE and the tips I learned transformed it from something daunting and frustrating to something manageable! Definitely booking another session!

Incredible Experience!

I've had the pleasure of working with Brad for over a year in multiple areas -- GMAT prep, business school apps, business school interviews, and pre-MBA interviews -- and I can't speak highly enough about the experience. In May 2021, I began seeing Brad for GMAT prep, planning to take the GMAT in July. I required help in terms of time management and strategy. Brad had a GMAT strategy schedule we kept to in which he taught me the necessary Quant and Verbal strategies to succeed and hit my score of 710+. He is extremely organized and timely. He sees his students as individuals and tailors his mentoring to each person. The first time I took the GMAT, I did not score as high as I had hoped with 580, though I was hitting my 710+ mark consistently in practice. I was discouraged, but Brad helped me realize it was a mental problem, and I had to trust myself. The next time I took the GMAT in September, I was more confident and scored a 710. I believe Brad's confidence in me and his encouragement helped me reach my potential, and though I am not the best test-taker, I was able to reach my mark. In Fall 2021, I was applying to MBA programs. I had my eyes set on NYC, and Brad helped me through applications. We worked through essay ideas together, and he helped me hone down my ideas into the required characters. His knowledge in managing admissions interviews and applicants helped me incredibly as he provided valuable insight into the process and what admissions committees are looking for in an applicant. Once I received an interview invite, we went over interview Dos and Donts. We mock-interviewed, and Brad gave me valuable feedback. I killed the interview and got into NYU Stern! Most recently, we interview-prepped for a pre-MBA program. Brad, through encouragement and prep gave me the confidence I needed to ace the interview. We worked through questions, situations, and "what ifs." After working with Brad for a year, I give my highest commendation. He is an incredible tutor who meets students at their level, giving every student the attention they deserve and need. His highest hope is his students' success, and that is clear in everything he does.

Great experience for GMAT

Brad offers some great advice and his explanations are helpful. I liked that we worked through multiple practice problems. My score improved by 80 with just three session. He is very professional and responds to inquiries very timely. I highly recommended considering Brad for GMAT tutoring.

Brad - Tutoring

Brad was nothing short of a spectacular tutor and life coach. I started very far away from what my goal was (and had big goals to say the least). Brad was patient with me every step of the way and was always there to help me push through tough times. Additionally, Brad was always available even on days where we didn’t have a session. He answered flurries of questions at random hours and always made me feel like I was his only student. I couldn’t be more grateful for Brad or his services, 11/10.
