Alyse is the newest member of our team, expanding us into the Western Suburbs! She is excited to be a part of such an individualized tutoring company and joins us with over 8 years experience in elementary education and a love for learning.

Her career kicked off in 2006 as she graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education, and moved to Florida to become a first grade teacher. It was there that her passion for teaching was ignited and her experience in Florida equipped her to move back home to Illinois to continue her teaching path. She began teaching fourth grade on the south side of Chicago with a well- renowned Charter school. During this time she was challenged in her career by the high standards and demands of the charter school’s curriculum, which peaked her curiosity to learn more. In 2013, Alyse pursued her master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Upon moving further north in Chicago, Alyse continued to teach elementary aged students in Evanston. She has experience teaching students from different backgrounds, languages, and cultures. She is particularly experienced in differentiated instruction, has a plethora of reading intervention strategies, and experience with diagnostic testing and monitoring tools to track students progress.

Alyse enjoys cooking, shopping, and living a healthy lifestyle by working out at the gym or going for a run; she loves warm weather and the sun. In her free time she likes to go for walks with her dog and baby, and enjoys spending time with her husband and new baby.

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
