About Us

Tutoring for Success has been serving students of Marin and San Francisco for over 30 years.  As the founder and director, Sylvia Verange is dedicated to helping students reach their educational dreams.  

Working with students as an academic coach, Sylvia has the ability to communicate and inspire students as well as teach them the skills they need for success.


A graduate of the University of Oregon, Sylvia also studied at the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, Berkeley, where she received Honors with a GPA of 4.0.  

She also pursued special studies at the Instituto de Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and she has lived and worked in Central and South America.  

In addition, Sylvia has taught Spanish at Marin Primary and Geometry and Algebra at Marin Catholic.

Success is not so much a matter of who is gifted, but rather the acquiring of essential skills and building blocks.
