"I know I’ve said it before but I truly believe without the help of Laura George Consulting that my son would’ve had fewer acceptances to schools. He was admitted to 15/15 schools, most offering merit and many direct admit to respective school’s Engineering program. Between test prep and essay writing, it set this B average kid apart from others at many test optional schools (or at least that’s my opinion)! We thank you so much for all you helped him achieve!"

Thank you Laura George Consulting for your amazing full service ACT prep and college admissions help. My husband wanted to use one of those national companies that do ACT/SAT prep but as soon as we met Laura George we knew she was on an entirely different level. Your tutors , essay coaches, and parent liaisons are all excellent and do a great job of making the process painless for the students as well as the parents. Thank you for making this process such a positive one. We will definitely use you for our daughter next year. A.G.
Thank you Jennifer Lund for your endless support and connecting our daughter with your prestigious staff! Jane was excellent helping her fine tune her Common App and Essay work. Along with Karen for her last minute Interview preps. (THANK YOU KAREN). She went in the College process with ease and confidence! We appreciate your team cheering her on from the sidelines!!!! The bond she created with you and your staff will always be remembered and appreciated! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! P.P.
Their test prep services are phenomenal. All the people are very helpful and are able to pinpoint exactly what needs to be worked on very easily, as well as provide specific material to practice those weak points. The weekly sessions are the perfect time frame as they aren’t overbearing and give you plenty of time to practice. They have nearly infinite practice material as well which was the most helpful part for me. I was able to bring my act from a high score in the 20’s to the mid 30’s. Overall a great experience, would recommend. R.A.
Just wanted to drop you and Laura a line to let you know Eli committed to the University of Iowa! He is thrilled. Thank you for all of your assistance and the exceptional staff you have there.
Very pleased! My son's SAT score went from the mid 1200's to 1390! Their services were worth the money and I couldn't be more pleased with the results!!!
Thank you again for your help and guidance on the ACT exam and college preparation for Alex. Yesterday, he received notice he was accepted at Wash U in St. Louis. He is very excited! Thanks again! I will continue to recommend you for tutoring and college guidance.
We had two of our kids use their test prep tutoring services and it made a huge difference. Everything is tailored to the individual and there is constant communication and feedback with both the parents and kids. We are very happy with the programs they designed for each of our kids, and they responded really well to the daily and weekly plans. We highly recommend them for any college prep needs! C.P.
Our experience with Laura George - and her colleague Jennifer Lund - has been superlative. My son has received individualized attention and a good plan from the start. (As parents we have received some needed hand-holding as well). [My son] has performed extraordinarily well with the tutoring. His scores have improved dramatically. He is now looking at some schools we didn't think were realistic when we started the process. We are 100% satisfied with Laura George Consulting! B.M.
Truly thankful that we found our way to Laura George for ACT prep for my daughter. While we wanted her to achieve the best score possible, we knew we wanted ACT prep that she could “enjoy” and manage with her already full load of sports and academics. Balance was important, especially knowing the pressure cooker that area high schools can be for our young people.
Our daughter began the prep the summer ahead of her junior year. She was hoping to have a lot of the work out of the way, so she could focus on her classes and sports schedule during her junior school year.
The scheduling is flexible and accommodating, which was huge for us. The tutors are effective and my daughter actually enjoyed her time with them. Another huge benefit to their program. I didn’t feel like I was forcing my kid into this process whatsoever.I can’t recommend Laura George Consulting enough. M.Z.
I just wanted to thank you and LCG for your service in the last month. My goal was to give [my daughter] the opportunity to meet with top-notch tutors to help resolve issues of mis-understanding or wrong approach on her part. Her performance on the test will be determined by her own innate abilities as well as her desire and ability to buckle down during this preparation period. I do believe she has fully received adequate test insight and tips to take that aspect off the table.
This is just a quick note to say THANK YOU for your amazing Science prep work you did with our son. [He] recently took the ACT and hit a 36 on the Science section. As you may recall, Science was the one section where he was hitting a wall, unable to score higher than a 31. In just two sessions of work with you, he seems to have cracked it. Amazing!
[My wife] and I always expected to see an improvement in her score but we are absolutely blown away by the 5 point improvement. Not only that, but we have seen a huge improvement in her overall school test scores as well. She seems to have a much better study plan when she prepares for tests and goes into each test with much more confidence. We truly felt that the entire process working with your team was outstanding.
Laura’s method was sitting down with my son in a couple of meetings brainstorming and getting him to focus on topics that would give the admission officers a sense of who he is. Laura’s approach and dedication helped to make sure that my son stayed focused and produced top notch essays that not only showcased his writing skills but also revealed things important about him and his personality that his grades and test scores could not. V.K.
Definitely recommend LGC. We did test prep tutoring and CA essay with Laura herself for our junior. Our student liked all her tutors and felt safe/comfortable in their nice/clean office in Lincolnshire. She enjoyed working with Laura for her CA essay and how Laura brought out topics and connections. Our student raised her ACT score by 6 points and was satisfied. One of the best features is their Parent Liaison who is your go-to person and stays with you the whole time. Our Parent Liaison is Lavinia and she is knowledgeable/ compassionate and is now helping us with our younger student. Laura was very accommodating with all of our needs and is wiling to work with you, which is all we can ask for. Their fees are comparable to other reputable tutoring places, if not on the more reasonable side. K.C.
We had an excellent experience with Laura George Consulting. My daughter worked with Karen on her college application essays. They brainstormed essay topics, reviewed drafts and discussed how they might be improved during one-on-one video chat sessions. Karen’s feedback boosted my daughter’s confidence, but she never felt that her work was being done for her. For applications with multiple essays, the brainstorming helped to come up with topics that enabled my daughter to create a well-rounded, multidimensional portfolio. Karen was quick to respond, and flexible about meeting times. Jennifer helped us with general questions about the application process. My daughter was accepted at several selective schools, including one of her top choices. J.C.
Laura has the extraordinary ability to help students write amazing college essays. She helped my nephew focus on his personal interests and goals in order to achieve an amazing essay. Due to her work with the Admission Committee at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, Laura understands what it takes to make an essay stand apart from the rest. Her dedication and attention to detail helped my nephew gain entrance into his dream college… Go Irish!
My son raised his score and absolutely conquered the ACT test! Laura’s service is worth every penny. We will definitely be utilizing Laura George Consulting when my son is ready to start applying to schools.
I got my ACT score back last night and was VERY excited to see that I got a 35. I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to prepare me and improve my score. I feel a lot better going into college applications with this score. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really appreciate all the ways in which you helped me.
We highly recommend Laura George Consulting. My Son did the ACT Prep, gaining critical skills and confidence throughout the process, allowing him to achieve his target score. Laura and her team of Tutors and Parent Liaisons are knowledgeable, highly professional, and experts at navigating what can be an overwhelming and stressful process for parents and students alike. Very happy with our choice to utilize Laura George Consulting and will definitely do the same thing with our daughter who is next in line!
My son used Laura George Consulting to prepare for the ACT exam and assistance with college applications/essays. The instructors were terrific with ACT prep as his score increased substantially. Laura personally worked with him on applications and essay development. Jennifer Lund was an excellent liaison throughout the process and offered professional assistance beyond the call of duty. They were a great team and we were very pleased with the results. He was accepted into numerous excellent engineering schools and will be attending the University of Illinois Grainger School of Engineering. We are very grateful to Laura, Jennifer and staff for their assistance! M.M.
We were completely lost when my daughter announced to us one year ago that she would have liked to join a top American university. She has always been a very brilliant student, but we did not have any idea of how to deal with the American platform in order to create her profile and “post “any request for admission. This was July 2020 and we found the name of the American platform (Common Application) at that time and what she should have had to go through: writing essays was the most difficult part since here in Europe essays are not the same and most of the time they are not even requested. Before panicking, I decided to google for help on “American essay writing procedure”. And then, I realized how much it was difficult to find, among the long list of consulting firms on essay writing, the one which was professional enough to help me out. Laura Consulting was the one I chose due to the professional experiences and academic background of the entire team. They are extremely high standing.
I was not wrong: Laura was immensely helpful. She understood right from the very beginning what were our needs, and she was really outstanding with my daughter. Laura had regular Zoom meetings with her and after less than 2 months my daughter was completely confident to apply for an early action in one of the top 20 US universities. She succeeded in being accepted and next fall she will be there as one of the very few European students joining one of the most excellent and amazing universities of the United States.
Thank you very much Laura for your great and very appreciated support. You really deserve it. With gratitude. G.B.R - France

Laura and her staff were always helpful and flexible when scheduling sessions with my busy son. With the help of Laura's tutors, he raised his ACT score by five points! Jennifer was wonderful with checking in and following up with us. She even answered college application questions via text on weekends. Laura helped my son brainstorm ideas in order to write a very personal Common App essay. We love everything about LGC! Thank you!
Thank you to the team of people at Laura George Consulting for helping my son to significantly increase his ACT score. A 7 point increase was more than we expected !!! 'Stretch' colleges he would not have gotten into prior to studying with his tutors, are now a realistic option !! Jennifer, Dimitra and Laura H were super ! The 1-on-1 tutoring meant that Dimitra and Laura H only focused on where my son needed help. If your child is willing to do the work that is assigned to him by his tutors then you will be happy with the results that you will get when working with the Laura George team!
