Today my guest is Lauren Gaggioli, Higher Scores Test Prep. After graduating from New York University with her B.F.A. in Theater, Lauren moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. To make time for auditions during the day, she called upon her nerdy roots from her high school days and began tutoring the SAT and ACT. She quickly fell in love – not with the exams, but with the feeling that she was helping students put their feet on a firm path towards a big, bright future.

After 7 years working as an in-home tutor with a large test prep firm and then in her own independent tutoring company, Lauren distilled her experiences into the personalized SAT prep course that is now available through Higher Scores Test Prep. Lauren’s love of teaching and compassion for what students are facing in today’s complex, competitive college admissions landscape allows her to bring a little bit of calm to her corner of the college admissions process.

Lauren is also the host of The College Checklist podcast. In the podcast, she interviews college counselors and other college admissions professionals, bringing timely, relevant information to today’s college bound families. It’s just one more way she’s working to calm the crazy inherent in today’s stressful college application process.
