    "Dennis and I joked that he was equal part GMAT tutor equal part counselor/psychologist. He was incredibly supportive and encouraging never losing hope in my abilities. He helped me develop a solid plan about how to approach my last month of studying and thankfully, that plan proved to be very effective - he helped me raise my score from a 650 to a 690 in one month!"
