About Lisa ElJaie

Greetings potential student, allow me to briefly introduce myself. My name is Lisa E., and I'm a registered/certified highly qualified educational Paraprofessional with over 13 years of experience in the Chicago Public school system as well as Chicago charter schools. I have worked with the special needs students as well as their families for the majority of the time. I'm patient and welcoming to all students who could benefit from my skill set. Are you experiencing difficulty with reading, comprehension or maybe your handwriting is a little difficult for some to understand? I may be able to help! You see, I truly enjoy a good book. Reading opens the mind and heart to a world that would otherwise be unreachable to many of us. Reading affords us invaluable opportunities, and knowing how to read as well as comprehend what we read can lead to endless possibilities.
Going back to when I was a student, I'd often been told I had a beautiful penmanship. I took pride in my handwriting, so I practiced, and you can do the same! In many schools legible handwriting is a forgotten art. I think you as well as your parents will appreciate my patient non-judgmental personalty... likability is truly key! I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with the Autistic population for many years. I've also worked with students that have other mental and or physical disabilities that come from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. If you're seeking a perfectionist, I may not be the right tutor for you or your child. If on the other hand you're seeking someone that will work to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment, please schedule an appointment. In addition to my educational background I was employed for several years as a Social Services worker with the Department of Human Services located in Chicago. I have awesome professional and personal references. I will give my best and work with you to help you achieve your full potential.

Best Regards,
Lisa

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Autism

I have worked with children and adults with Autism for over 20 years. I have worked with them on both an individual basis as well as with in a small group setting. I have done this through Chicago Public Schools and the Department of Human Services.

I have gone to college and aquired my skills in reading, handwriting, social services and child development. All this combined with my work history more than qualifies me to tutor in these subjects working with students that may or may not have disabilities.

Handwriting

My handwriting has always been neat and legible. Throughout all my years of schooling as well as instruction I have always taken my time and put effort into my writing. The writing is equally as important as the words you're conveying.

Special Needs

I have been an Special Education Instructor with both the Chicago Public School system as well as several of the local Charter Schools. I have provided educational services via virtual technology as well as face to face instruction.
