It is a big relief for my son to do well on the first round of SATs. Ross was instrumental in helping him with the verbal. He got a near perfect score on the math but needed to boost his verbal. I wish you could have seen his face when he read the email. It was priceless! First thing he did was reach out to Ross. That speaks mounds!

Anya knows the ins and outs of the college process. My favorite part about having Anya as a tutor is how enthusiastic and encouraging she is. She provides just the right amount of constructive criticism, so I never feel like I lose my voice in my essays. She brings out the very best in the students she works with.

Rick is the best. The kids adore him and he always goes the extra mile to help. He really cares and it comes through. My experience with Rick has been wonderful and I am very happy we made the decision to go with Carnegie Prep!

Dear Lee,

We truly can’t thank you enough for your work with C. He took the SAT in Jan and March and scored 670 and 680 on Math. We came to you specifically seeking to boost his math score — and you took it through the roof!!! 800 (Math), 750 (Writing), 750 (Critical Reading). You boosted his score by 180 points in just two months–really extraordinary.


My son’s test scores are through the roof after your prep courses. Amanda worked with him on his common application and supplemental essays and I am so impressed with all he has learned and the products he’s produced. Thank you for running a fabulous organization with an amazing ROI!

Thank you so much for recommending Lee. On the January SAT my son got an amazing result! My son always came home and said that Lee challenged him and that he learned something he didn’t know.

My daughter thought that Tim was a fantastic teacher and that his course was extremely helpful in preparing for the AP Environmental Science exam.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Emma. She has been working with our son for just a little over a month. You can read below that his initial score was a 25 before any tutoring. He took a second practice test on Saturday and scored a 28 overall with two 30’s.
Thank you Emma! We are excited!

Every student’s needs will be different, and Lynn Carnegie and Carnegie Prep show the ability to rapidly adapt SAT/SSAT tutoring to each individual student, with kindly encouragement, practicality, cost-effectiveness, and making it all seem almost easy!

Sam is modest and understands the subtleties of competitive applications to boarding schools. With Sam’s focused and insightful help, and time flexibility, our time-crunched son completed the exam with an overall SSAT score in the 95th percentile and with a much more competitive balance between Verbal and Quantitative.


My daughter received a 730 on the SAT Biology Subject test. We are thrilled! Your course was a significant factor. Many thanks!!!

Hi Rick,

I got a 730. I thought the [Chemistry SAT Subject Test] course was great. Thanks so much for all your help!

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!

The communication all along the way from your teachers is stellar! Your course is first-rate, so thank you, thank you!

Hey Austin,

I just wanted to thank you for everything. I just received my PSAT scores, and thanks to your help I scored a 76 in Math. I know for a fact that this score is a direct result of your help, so I just wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for your effort and time. Thank you.
