Student Testimonials

"I decided to get a tutor for my GMAT after completing the Oxford GMAT prep course. At the time I realized that I had a lot of 're-learning' to do and felt a tutor was my best option. Being that I was referred to Dave through Oxford, I found him very easy to connect with and was comfortable working with him immediately. In fact, he was able to identify my weaknesses and provided me with strategies to solve the problems. We focused mainly on the quantitative section. I was extremely please with the experience I had working with Dave and would recommend his service to future GMAT students."

"Coupled with Dave's unique ability to identify weaknesses and offer strategies to achieve admissions goals, he really cares about his clients and is a blast to work with. Not only did Dave take my GMAT score from a 30th percentile to an 80th percentile by motivating me to to stay dedicated and providing me with the tools to succeed, he also prepared me for the interview and application process which got me into my dream school. I'd recommend him to anyone considering an MBA or other graduate program. He's one of the elite consultant out there."

My Kapstone tutor was an amazing person. Easy to get along with and a great teacher. I would not have been properly prepared for the GMAT without him and the resources from Kapstone. Would 100% recommend to anyone who needs to beef up some skills before an entrance exam.

"I had Dave as my tutor for 3 months. Above all, Dave setup a detailed study schedule for me from the get-go and worked with me closely on debriefing mock exams and question sets. Moreover, he is extremely patient and was brilliant at understanding the root causes of my mistakes. He used easy to understand methodologies to explain complex concepts. Furthermore, he paid close attention to my exam writing habits and recommended adjustments accordingly. After 3 months of intensive part-time training, I was successful in my first GMAT attempt and received an offer from one of the top 2 MBA programs in Canada. I highly recommend Dave to anyone who wants to make an instant improvement to their GMAT score."

"Not only was David very professional and truly cared about what my end goal was, he was able to get me there as efficiently as possible. I was feeling much more confident with the material and found that his methods were far better than any other experiences I had had such as quick weekend seminars and 'learn-it-yourself' books. More over, Dave taught me how to think like the exam creators and how to tackle through questions. My GMAT score improved by 150 points from the initial score I received. Finally, we worked together on my resume format to land my current position as a Commercial Finance Controller at a large international corporation."

"Once I reached out to David and Kapstone Academic, I was in need of GMAT prep and had very little time to do so. Not only did David create a custom plant to get my test taking abilities up to par, but he did so with a schedule to accommodate my tight timeline and demanding work schedule. For one thing, his patience, organization and know-how made a lot of concept and questions easy to understand. Happy to say that I was accepted to my desired business school - only needing to take the exam once!"

Fantastic teacher with a lot of GMAT experience. Teaches well in "ninja moves" with students and making sure they understand the concept. I enjoy his pace and teaching methods very much.

David del Burgo was my tutor and his support was instrumental in helping me get past the GMAT. He taught me methods for tackling quant problems in an efficient manner that allowed me to beat the clock. Definitely get his one-on-one help if you’re struggling with the quant section of the GMAT.

Great insight to the application process. David was a pro at walking me through the business school interview process and it was clear that he knew his stuff. Definitely recommend to those who are looking to nail that application.

"David and Kapstone Academic were a pivotal part of my MBA. Having come from a background in social studies my skills in finance and accounting had room for improvement. David made the teachings understandable and tailored his approach to my learning style. It really made the difference for my MBA. I highly recommend Kaptsone!"

Having worked with Dave for over two years, I can attest to how valuable an experience it was. His ability to understand my professional goals and then develop a 'curriculum' to help me achieve them was done with complete expertise and attention to detail. He effectively managed our time and made sure I was prepared for each new challenge as they approached. He has mastered the subjects he teaches on and was able to combine his knack for teaching with a custom approach to help the material make sense to me in a fundamental way. I would highly urge anyone considering his service to take the first step.

Dave is an outstanding tutor! In less than an hour he broke down corporate finance concepts for me that hours with a prof, text and study guide had failed to achieve. He has a gift for quickly spotting exactly where MBA students are stumbling on concepts and providing concise explanations that unlock them. I highly recommend Kapstone!

I go to UofT and David tutored me through many of the tough Economics courses. He is very knowledgeable and explains concepts well. Definitely would recommend 👍 .

Dave was excellent to work with ahead of my CFA level 1 exam. He was incredibly knowledgeable and was great to work with. He did an excellent job of helping me figure out what is important to understand vs what I can spend less time on. Overall a great experience and I'd highly recommend.
