Tam Nguyen entered the world of test prep out of his desire to teach. A Mechanical Engineering graduate from UCLA, he entered the games industry where he quickly fell into a role in instructional design and realized he enjoyed the craft. Soon after, he found himself tutoring privately and then for Veritas Prep and Crimson Education not long after.
With a background in games and a knack for finding patterns in content, Tam aims to structure his courses much like how games can be structured—with a ramping difficulty level and just enough challenge to keep you engaged. His ability to find patterns helped him score 760 on the GMAT, and these days, he's constantly looking for ways to teach concepts or learn methods more effectively.
Tam treats the GMAT much like a game. It's challenging, and it can be fun with the right perspective.
