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.
We pride ourselves in building strong, lasting relationships. We listen to students and parents, matching them with experienced teachers and tutors who make recommendations that guide student progress. Constant communication remains a key to our success. At every step, we invest in students and families.
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
Thank you for your support for my son, he definitely benefited from the focused instruction and your dedication.
Allison was terrific! Can’t say enough. Professional, smart, kind, and on time.
My daughter met with Mike on Saturday. She thinks he is amazing and wants to stick with him for Math and Science. She said Mike clarified some things she NEVER understood before. Thanks so much for all your help with this process!
Thanks for all your support. You have a great team, and we will be back with our youngest in a few years :).
Thank you very much, Lynn. It was very reassuring speaking with you. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction.
