Marion M.

I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Chicago in Comparative Human Development. I'm passionate about spreading my love of learning to students of all ages, and I have experience teaching a variety of subjects. My goal is always to take the stress out of studying and testing as much as possible by giving students the tools they need to feel comfortable and confident. When I'm not teaching or doing my own schoolwork, I love cooking, embroidering, and reading every book I can get my hands on.
