Mr. Carney is one of the most caring and fun teachers I have ever had. He has the ability to make any topic enjoyable. Mr. Carney wants all of his students to succeed and greatly helps us through the journey of applying to college. I have learned so much in this class and am extremely glad I chose Mr. Carney to help me succeed on the SAT and be my college counselor.

I had a wonderful experience with diamond learning center and Mr. Carney’s excellent teaching!! He not only taught us the necessary curriculum but also had fun while at at. He made the class immensely less boring than it could have ever been. I learned so many things from his sat classes as well as in college counseling. Mr. Carney really guided me and helped me through the whole college application process and I would’ve been lost without him! – Elizabeth Y.
