Shannon, Founder

Marin Tutors began in 1999 while Shannon was working as an adjunct college level math professor in Woodside, California. Her vision was: “What if we could reach more students not just in advanced math, but also in all subjects and grade levels so that every student has college choices”? The company began with one tutor, a high school physics teacher. Fast forward to 2020 and Marin Tutors now has over 32 tutors reaching not only private and public school K-12 students, but also serving low income K-12 and college students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. All students deserve top of the line academic tutoring to boost self-confidence, math and writing skills and improve their chances for that coveted college dream. 


As the founder and director of Marin Tutors, Shannon is dedicated to helping students reach their educational dreams. Having taught and tutored math for every grade level from first through twelfth, she has worked as a mentor for students for twenty five years and has been a professional college counselor for high school students for college selection, college resume, and applications process. A graduate of U.C. Berkeley, Shannon holds a B.A. in Economics. She also graduated from Boston College with an M.A. in School Counseling.
