Austin Leah and Duane Smith were great and extremely helpful throughout the entire process.
My son, who is a young man of very few words, was eager to tell us how helpful and intelligent Caroline was just after one session!!! She helped him master it!!!! He got a 36 in Math. She knew he could do it. She told him that every time they met. She was able to explain the strategies to him and raise his confidence level by leaps and bounds.
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.
Having worked with my son on improving his verbal and reading ACT scores (36V/34R), it was an easy decision to ask Pam to help him with his college essay. Through their discussions, they came up with a great essay topic, which genuinely conveys him as a person. While she guided him, he definitely wrote the essay, and it is clearly in his voice. Pam has a unique ability to break down the writing process so it doesn’t seem so daunting. This is our third time working with a college essay editor, and it was by far the best of the three experiences.
Cathy and Lynn,
THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your Biology SAT Subject Test class was efficient & comprehensive preparation for the test. It was a great first experience for us at Carnegie Prep, and we will definitely be back for more (for both daughters)! You provide a valuable service, and we are so grateful to have had access to it.
Thank you, Sam! I was struggling in AP Statistics and after just a few meetings with Sam, my grade in the class rose significantly. Additionally, he did a great job of preparing me for the AP test itself. I felt like I had a really good grasp on the material and his help made the AP much easier than I initially anticipated.
Dylan was the perfect match for my son. When one approach to a problem did not work, Dylan would explain the problem in a different way that would connect for E. Dylan also provided time saving tricks and study guides. Dylan’s easy-going nature and perseverance clearly helped E achieve a 35 on the ACT.
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.
He has raised his overall score by 170 points over seven months and three tests. Your tutors have played an important role in his success. Some educators are reluctant to acknowledge the importance of standardized tests and yet good results make a huge difference in college outcomes, particularly given grade inflation.
Lynn, thank you for your advice! Your classes helped our son win the maximum National Merit Scholarship for all four years at Northwestern. We are so grateful!
I wanted to express my gratitude for Anya. She was a critical part of my acceptance into Wharton. Every week she would help me with my various college essays. She is so understanding and patient and incredibly intelligent. Without her help, neither me nor my brothers would be where we are today.
Dan was very generous with his time (gave me 2-plus hours each time despite charging me for only 1.5 hours) and called me multiple times to check in. The Skype didn’t seem to make any difference, and I greatly appreciated his his time and his interest in helping me improve on the LSAT. Dan has an unparalleled level of enthusiasm.
Dear Austin and Marshall,
I decided to take the SAT again in May because I thought I could improve my math score. I got my score back today – 2400! I am beyond happy, and wanted to share the good news, because all of your help made that score a possibility. I thank you for helping me achieve the perfect score! Thanks so much.
Lynn – just wanted you to know that Chris did a great job with C this spring. A 32 on his first try, a big improvement from his practice test earlier in the fall. Also, he did a great job accommodating our very fluid schedule. Thanks for all the help.
I wanted to thank you for encouraging me to sign up for the PSAT course. Rick was a fantastic teacher and I’m glad I got to know him before the SAT course. I was thrilled to become a National Merit Finalist but I am even more thrilled to let you know I am one of the scholarship winners! I couldn’t have done it without your program.
