Nitin Sawhney started the tutoring division of Marks Education in 2006. In addition to his tutoring responsibilities, Nitin directs instructor hiring and training, curriculum development, and business management for the tutoring division of Marks Education.
Nitin has been an educator since 1998 and, in this time, he has taught and tutored high-school Math and Economics, college English, and most U.S. standardized tests, from the SSAT and ISEE to the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT. He has worked with thousands of students across the United States and nine foreign countries. Nitin takes the SAT and ACT at least once a year, the SAT Subject tests, GRE, and GMAT frequently, and regularly scores in the 99th percentile or gets perfect scores.
Nitin has been the key developer of Marks Education’s test preparation approach, which regularly helps students improve 1 to 2 standard deviations. He has worked with a wide range of students – from students with learning disabilities to those who are starting in the 700s on the SAT or GMAT and aiming for a perfect score, from students with debilitating test anxiety to those who suffer from a surfeit of confidence. He especially enjoys working with students who have greater than usual challenges and he has been very successful with this population.
Nitin reads zealously about the effects of aerobic exercise, meditation, sleep, and diet upon performance. He enjoys running, swimming, and meditating, and has helped many students to use meditation and exercise to manage stress and succeed on tests. Nitin also directs our pro bono test preparation and tutoring program for scholars of Collegiate Directions, Inc. (CDI) and the work with our partner organizations. Nitin has a B.A. in English and Economics from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. He also holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Maryland.
