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.


I would like to thank you so much for the preparation that you gave me for the math SAT. With your help on the challenging “killer” packets, I earned a 750 with only two questions wrong! I would recommend this course to anyone because you help every student succeed significantly. Thanks again!

Pam helping my son earn a 36 on verbal and a 34 on reading doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of what she has taught him.  She did not simply teach to the test.  Rather she taught him rules of grammar, helping him not only earn a perfect score, but more importantly giving him the tools to be a better writer and more confident reader.  She is kind, patient and incredibly organized.  Any student would be lucky to work with her.

I wanted to tell you that Dan’s tutoring my daughter via Skype is working out really well — much better than either of us imagined. She is very pleased with Dan’s style, patience, knowledge and personality etc. He always spends extra time with her and she is finding the tutoring very helpful.

Good Morning Dan! I wanted to reach out and let you know that Ben thought you were terrific. He came away saying he thinks you’re a great teacher. Hopefully that will play out with his Physics Subject Test score. Fingers crossed and thanks so much.

My daughter was accepted to her first choice school! I would like to especially thank Anya. Anya not only shared  her expertise and knowledge of writing with Stella but she was such a supportive person for Stella throughout this entire process, which speaks for her character and the kind of person she is. Anya is in a superior category all of her own!!!

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

Laurie did an excellent job preparing our daughter for the SSATs. She also tutored her in Algebra where was she was among the top students in her class. She was delightful to work with and fully committed to the success of our daughter.

Thank you for your support for my son, he definitely benefited from the focused instruction and your dedication.

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.

I just wanted to loop back with you, and let you know we had a wonderful experience with Chris. My daughter thought he was knowledgeable and that he was also very patient, and good at explaining concepts. We would recommend him without any hesitation to another family.

I can’t say enough good things about my son’s tutoring experience with Carnegie Prep. His test scores went up significantly, but what I think is even more important, he went from feeling insecure and overwhelmed to having a level of confidence that has spread to his current studies as well.  The pairing of Kate for English and Mike for math is a combo not to be beat. Their “you can do this” approach instills confidence and brings back pleasure to the learning process.

I knew the minute I met Boyi that her quiet confidence would be an inspiration to my daughter. I am proud to say that with Boyi’s help, my daughter scored a perfect 36 on the ACT! This will have a lasting impact on her life forever, and we are grateful to you for introducing us to Boyi.

Thank you again for having J. be a part of your program this winter. The instructors Rob have kept in touch, and I can’t stress enough, in such a personal way. But, most importantly, J. was able to get his math score up to near (or hopefully at) perfect, and also bring up his lagging English score – we are so pleased with the results.


Amanda helped my son finish up the supplemental essays today. She was amazing, wonderful, and most of all an excellent tutor! I cannot thank you & her enough for all of her help with these! His AP English teacher read the Common App Supplement and told his the essay was “excellent!” We are thrilled and thankful these are done!
