CO-FOUNDER & CEO
Tino is the co-founder & CEO of Schuler Educational Consulting, where he effectively guides young people and families on their college selection journey.
Tino is a member of the Board of Trustees at Knox College—his alma mater—where he serves on the Admissions & Financial Aid and Campus Life & Athletics Committees. He also received an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin. Tino is a member of the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling and a graduate of the Independent Educational Consultants Association Summer Workshop.
After serving 26 years in the medical technology industry, accumulating several patents and rising to Senior Marketing Director for ENT/Neuromonitoring at Medtronic in Jacksonville, Tino and his wife Silke embarked on a path to help our youth select the perfect college for them to succeed in the changing global marketplace. They were inspired to create Schuler Educational Consulting in part because of the success of the Schuler Scholar Program, a nonprofit that has supported, equipped and helped gain access to college for over 1000 low income and first-generation college-bound students of color in the Chicago area. Family is the most important thing to the Schulers, and they bring a commitment to personal service to your family’s search for the perfect college.
In addition to his counseling and business success, Tino has further honed his leadership skills through coaching dozens of youth sports teams for his children Emily (17 and a senior), Sophie (15, sophomore) and William (13, 8th-grade), as well as hundreds of other kids across Northeast Florida. Tino and Silke enjoy spending time with their extended family, traveling (including 16 campus visits so far with Emily!) and walking on the beach with their dogs Ava and Nick. Tino also enjoys golf, skiing and reading history books.
