Marin Tutors began in 1999 while Shannon was working as a college level math professor in Mill Valley, CA. 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 a chance to improve confidence and skills?" The company began with one tutor, a high school algebra teacher. Fast forward to 2023, and Marin Tutors now has over 40 tutors reaching not only K-12 public and private school students, but also serving low income elementary, middle school, high school and college students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. All students deserve top of the line academic tutoring to boost self-confidence, gain math and writing skills and improve their chances for acceptances to top high schools and colleges.
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 and college counselor for students for 24 years. As a professional college counselor for high school students, she advises and oversees the college resume, school selection and the college 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 for grades 5-12.
