About Us

Marks Education (formerly Marks Counseling Associates, LLC) was founded by Nina Marks  in 2004, building on her many years of distinguished teaching, leadership and college counseling at the National Cathedral School in Washington, DC.  In 2006, Nitin Sawhney started the Tutoring Division of Marks Education, which has enjoyed extraordinary results.  Since then, we added counseling services for K-12, graduate, and professional school admission.  This completed our vision to help students at every educational level. 

The firm continues to grow, offering wide-ranging services in counseling and tutoring for students and families around the world.  The team at Marks Education—counselors, tutors, and staff—deeply believes in the values that inspired Nina to start the firm:

  • Dedication to every student’s needs, to finding unique educational opportunities that fit his or her interests, goals, and strengths
  • Care for all clients, offering them tailored support, knowing that the admission process can be confusing and stressful
  • Commitment to leadership in the field, understanding current trends and serving as “thought leaders” in higher education
  • Excellence in strategic thinking, finding the best academic and personal fit for each student
