Thanks so much for advising me to have S. take the SAT in May. She ended up re-taking it. Given that most schools superscore, she’ll be applying to colleges with scores of 800, 800, and 750…not too bad. I so appreciate you taking the time to speak with me. It was well worth it, and she never would have done it had you and I not had that conversation.

Dear Lynn and Marshall,

Last night, my son came home from his final Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test class, he was literally grinning from ear-to-ear. Yes, he had had a practice test score of 800 and that is terrific! But what I liked most was he was soaring with confidence. He looked like a massive weight had been taken off of his shoulders.

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

Thank you so much for recommending Michael. He has a very patient and encouraging style of teaching that leads to outstanding results. My son was scoring in the mid 600 range in Math. My son took his first SAT and earned a PERFECT 800 score in math! I would strongly recommend Michael to any family in need of an exceptional math tutor.

Just wanted to tell you that I thought Meg was great and I’m very happy that my son worked with her. She was organized, reliable and always on time. It was a great connection. Thank you for the introduction!

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.


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!

Ross and Austin, My wife and I are extremely grateful for your thoughtful and dedicated work with our son. Regardless of the outcome, he was well prepared for the ACT exam. He completed each section with time to spare and with confidence. Thank you again.

I have great news! I have accepted my admission to Yale’s Class of 2020! I am very excited about this, as I know Yale is the best fit for me. I can’t thank you and the other Carnegie heroes enough. I really couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. John, Rick, Marshall — you guys rock.


Ken was a fantastic tutor. The structure of each tutoring session allowed me to advance as an SAT taker and understand my performance on each individual test that I took. It allowed me to eventually improve over 300 points on the SAT. Ken was extremely personable and a pleasure to work with.

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.

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.

Dear Cathy,

D. has mentioned on multiple occasions that he is very grateful to have the opportunity to take your class. You have a talent for presenting the material in a clear and concise manner which has allowed him to learn many things that he wouldn’t have learned otherwise. He is very confident going into the [Biology SAT Subject Test], thanks to you.

Thank you very much for the tremendous help during the ACT course! I especially appreciated the one-on-one feedback we were able to receive in class as well as the convenience of being able to approach the teacher by email on days where we did not meet. I would gladly enroll in another class.

Hi Rick,

I got a 5 on the AP exam! I couldn’t be happier with my score and your course played a crucial role in helping achieve it. I thought the packets you made from old AP exams organized by topic were extremely beneficial. Thank you so much.
