We can’t thank you enough for recommending Max as a tutor for our son. Our son has so enjoyed working with him in preparation for the ACT and as of late, the PSAT. He is an outstanding tutor, both in his knowledge base and his interpersonal skills. He demonstrates an excellent balance of empathy for the student, encouragement toward the student, and exhortation to work hard.

I can’t say enough good things about Connor. He worked with my son on the SAT, ACT, AP U.S. History and AP English. We just keep going with him because we were so pleased with the results. He was available and was able to work around our busy schedule. Could not ask for anything more.

Jerry, your mothers direction and support from day one with subject test strategy, pairing my son with Caroline for ACT prep and essay editing, you coming out of retirement to share your wisdom, providing a few other amazing tutors for the little extra push, and suggesting we find an outside counselor that’s a fit were all individual acts that amounted to something big!!!!

K. was accepted to Georgetown!! She is over the moon excited! Many thanks to you and your amazing staff for all your help and support! Your SAT tutors are fantastic and so supportive. I will certainly be recommending you to my friends and clients. Thanks again and all the best.

We are very happy that Juliana achieved her college objective. Kate was definitely a big part of that achievement! She was of great help as a tutor and is also an amazing person. Juliana loved working with her! We will be grateful for the rest of our lives.

Dear Amelia:

Your support and solid teaching helped L. get through the SAT and knock it out of the park. Thank you, thank you for what you did for L. in the classroom. Speaking from a mother’s point of view, I am very, very proud of him and very grateful for your help guiding him through the SAT test-taking process. You guys are invaluable.


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

Let me take the opportunity to tell you how OUTSTANDING John is. J attended the first review class for AP Government last night and came home saying he has never learned more in 2 1/2 hours than he did then. M was full of praise too, but coming from J is a whole other thing. Hats off to him…seriously!!!

Cathy, I got a 740!! Thanks so much for your help. I thought the class was super helpful.

I’d like to thank you again for teaching our class. It sounds impossible to effectively teach a class of exhausted high school students running on empty from a full school day and sports, but your class was very enjoyable and you kept us all awake! Thank you for giving me the tools to excel on the AP test.

Kyle is an excellent SAT tutor. My son’s success is due to Kyle’s ability to quickly assess his strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to systematically address any gaps that existed. Kyle is enthusiastic, dedicated and extremely knowledgable. Thank you Kyle!

My daughter did well on her ACT, a marked improvement from before taking your [Pre-Season ACT] class with Peter and Austin. She got a composite of 31! We are very pleased – she had months of private tutoring before we found you, and she never improved until your class. Thanks again.

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 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.


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.
