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.

Excellent tutor with extensive experience

Brad was an absolute difference-maker for me - he takes the time to understand your current performance and goals before curating a curriculum that is best-suited for you. One thing that is special about Brad's tutoring is that he blends his background in neuroscience with the curriculum to mentally prepare you for the exam. He cares a lot and does whatever he can to be helpful. I jumped from a 155/155 on the GRE to a 165/163 with his help.

Great graduate school interview prep tutor.

I had a few sessions with Brad that focused on interview prep physician assistant school. He is highly knowledgeable in the field and in interview prep in general. He broke things down in a way that made them very simple. I highly recommend Brad as a tutor.

Not only did Brad do a good job explaining the problems (clear and to the point), but he took notes during the session on key points discussed and sent it to me after.
