About Marla

My passion for teaching comes from a lifelong love of reading, writing and learning. A Fulbright, Phi Beta Kappa, and cum laude honors graduate, I'm a great example of how hard work and focus can yield amazing results!

I specialize in English, history, reading and writing. One of my goals is to keep my students excited and motivated about the material. I want to instill a love for reading and writing in my students!

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you on your journey to success!

I am experienced proofreader and editor, copywriter and journalist. I have published bylines in over 20 publications, including Timeout Chicago, The Daily Herald, Vegetarian Times, The A.V. Club, Newcity Chicago and Today's Chicago Woman. I have worked as a professional copywriter and blogger for brands such as Diners Club and Kerrygold.

I am generally available for tutoring every day from 9am to 9pm and I can travel to students or meet them online. My base rate is $60/hour for in-person lessons and $35 an hour for online lessons.

I also offer lesson packages at a discount--contact me for details!
