About Our Service in Long Island
In 2010 Private Prep partnered with local educator Jeremy Cohen to launch service in Long Island. Through this partnership, Private Prep Long Island delivers high quality tutoring that helps students achieve their goals.
Our talented team in Long Island consists of passionate and experienced educators with expertise in a wide range of subjects and test prep. They understand the unique pressure facing our students and provide valuable support that transcends academics. Many of our Academic Coaches faced similar environments during their grade school years and can relate to how our students feel as they try to manage school, social life, family and extracurricular activities.
