About Ilyse

I have both academic credentials and extensive experience as an educator. I have a graduate degree in Instructional Leadership with a focus on ESL and Bilingual Education (+ additional 100 post grad hours).

My love of foreign language, travel, and time spent living abroad inspired me to work in the field of English Language Learning. I have now accumulated decades of experience in all facets of education. I was most recently employed as the Director of English Language Learning in the third largest ELL program in the State of Illinois, a PreK-8 district of 16 schools, in which more than half of the students (approximately 6,700) were limited English proficient.

I hold the following Professional Educator Licenses in the State of Illinois:
Administrative (75), High School (09), Elementary (03), Early Childhood (04)
Endorsements (I am certified to teach these subjects): ESL, Bilingual Spanish, Spanish, Hebrew, Social Studies-Civics/Political Science, Economics

I have taught ESL grades K-12, adult education- literacy, business and vocational (medical, legal, engineering, construction, hospitality) classes, college level academic reading, writing and speaking courses

I enjoy learning about my students' language and culture and sharing my linguistic and cultural knowledge such that each individual can reach his/her potential as a learner. I will customize the curriculum and instruction to meet your specific needs and ensure academic success!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
