Since 1984, Carnegie Prep has offered academic support for students and families in Fairfield and Westchester counties and beyond. Founded in Greenwich, CT, Carnegie Prep prepares students to meet the challenges of standardized testing, academic classes, and college admission, offering resources for students at all levels.
What We Do
Our goal is to help students reach their full potential. Our certified teachers and tutors deliver individualized instruction to help students internalize the strategies and skills needed for high-caliber academic performance and test-taking success. Offering courses and private tutoring, Carnegie Prep has the unique ability to meet the needs of diverse learners.
On Virtual Learning
We’re excited to introduce our unique take to online learning. Working remotely opens up a new realm of educational possibility. It allows us to uniquely customize our collaborative classroom environment as well as one-on-one private tutoring, offering flexibility, optimized instruction, and materials unique to your virtual session.
I just want to let you know what a positive experience I have had with your tutors over the years. You, personally, have always taken the time (often 45 mins or more) to chat with me over the phone about each of my children to match me up the best tutor for each of them. My youngest has just finished up with Sam. He was tremendous!
I just wanted to touch base to let you know that things are going very well with all of my son’s tutors. Hunter, in particular, has been incredible. He has tremendous insight into how to work with a learning-disabled student. He completely changed his strategy with my son when he was worried that my son’s frustrations would affect his moral. I am so impressed!
We spoke last summer about engaging a private tutor to work with our son. You recommended a couple and we engaged Cormac. I want you to know that Cormac was a fantastic recommendation! We’ve just gotten back his ACT score – a 33! Cormac was diligent and very patient, especially good at coming up with different approaches when our son was having a hard time absorbing a concept.
Thanks so much, Lynn! You and Kyle have been such an incredible part of this journey and we cannot recommend you and him highly enough. Kyle is an outstanding tutor because of his incredible ability to teach but also because of his personality. He somehow combines being a teacher, advisor, and friend to both the students and parents in a way that makes the test process quite civilized.
We are thrilled to have found Sam as a tutor. My daughter has always identified as primarily an athlete, but Sam showed her that she can be a successful student as well. Her scores improved as well as her confidence in her academic self!
Your resources and unlimited advice beyond testprep are the best life connections we have ever had for my daughter.
Chris was an amazing tutor! Chris really took the time to get to know my son’s strengths and weaknesses so that he could advise us on which direction to go (ACT vs. SAT). He also offered many different strategies and tips based on my son’s needs. I will definitely be calling on Chris when my next son is ready to start this process.
Thanks for all your support. You have a great team, and we will be back with our youngest in a few years :).
I can’t thank you enough for the services that you provide. My daughter doesn’t need a tutor weekly for three months. Other educational services have wanted us to pay for programs where you had to sign on for a certain number of hours. I always know I can contact you and you’ll find me an amazing person that can help her for just as much or as little as is appropriate for her.
Every person Carnegie Prep has sent, from John (who helped me be the only girl in my class to get a 5 on physics!!) to Anya (who is the only reason I’m actually getting supplements done) and now Jesse, who finally is making me feel like I have a grasp on math, is so genuinely helpful or nice!
