Every person Carnegie Prep has sent, from John (who helped me be the only girl in my class to get a 5 on physics!!) to Anya (who is the only reason I’m actually getting supplements done) and now Jesse, who finally is making me feel like I have a grasp on math, is so genuinely helpful or nice!

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 want to thank Sam for his help tutoring my daughter for the ACT. She was able to raise her overall score 4 points to a 35. We were thrilled! I was especially impressed with her improvement given the number of times they met. Sam quickly assessed where she needed to focus her attention and was very deliberate about what they covered in each session. Sam was also very flexible with her busy schedule. Thank you!

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.

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 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.

This past year Carnegie provided my son with the appropriate tutoring to ensure he maximized his test scores and of course he did just that. He finished with all 5’s on his AP exams. Also with random tutoring throughout the year from your amazing tutors your staff was instrumental in helping him finish his junior year VERY STRONG -with a transcript to prove it!

Sam’s knowledge of Statistics and ability to explain complicated concepts in a clear and thorough manner was essential to my daughter’s understanding of the subject. She was able to get a great score on the AP exam with his support!

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.

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.

Sam rocks. My son had some issues in math and Sam boosted his score on the SAT by 70 points in just five sessions. If you’re looking for a super tutor for the SAT, look no further than Sam.
