Who We Are
The premier test preparation and private tutoring company in Fairfield and Westchester counties, Carnegie Prep has over 35 years of experience, earning the trust of schools and families through an unwavering commitment to recognizing the academic potential of each student we serve. Founded by two teachers — a math and an English teacher — Carnegie Prep relies on a team of experienced teachers, tutors, and personnel, all of whom are passionate about helping students succeed.
The magic of Carnegie Prep comes from our belief that all students can achieve. We pride ourselves in finding the right fit — teacher or tutor — for each unique learner. Our teachers and tutors know how to get the most out of students, teaching the individual rather than the content. Through communication with students and families, our team learns how to personalize our approach to the specific academic, social, and emotional needs of the individual student. We treat each student as we would our own children, and we work with families to design a manageable and systematic approach that builds confidence and helps students recognize achievement.
What We Do
Each student is unique. Some are aspiring teachers, members of a travel hockey team, accomplished musicians, part-time poets. Carnegie Prep appreciates the diversity of learning styles, outside interests, motivation, and confidence that our students bring to the table, and we take the time to get to know our students so that we can make informed recommendations that maximize success. Our teachers and tutors love what they teach, and this passion is contagious. Our success is built on a solid curriculum. Materials are regularly updated and expanded to meet the needs of all students, regardless of ability level. By keeping track of the latest testing trends, our teachers and tutors have the capacity to adjust instruction and engage individual learners.
