Molly is overjoyed to join the Chicago Home Tutor family. She comes to the Chicago Home Tutor team with over 10 years of experience and a passion for teaching.  She began her work as in-home respite care worker while working on her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Michigan State University. During this time she provided an array of services in the home including academic, behavioral and daily living support and gained experience working with students with autism, cerebral palsy, Rett syndrome and behavior disorders. She came to Chicago six years ago to work on a Master’s in Education at DePaul University. She received a dual certification in elementary and special education.

Molly has worked as a 4th grade special education teacher in Chicago’s southwest side for 5 years. She has experience in working with students with learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism, ADHD, developmental delays and emotional and behavioral disorders. She also works closely with general education students and bilingual students. She has experience in using an array of assessments, teaching practices, and progress monitoring tools in order to help students to be more academically and socially successful. She is particularly experienced in using research-based methods in order to increase student s achievement in reading and math. She also brings with her an abundance of knowledge and experience in using technology, such as iPads and applications, to help students to bridge the gap in their learning. In addition, she works as one of the Response to Intervention (RTI) coordinators at her elementary school. She is responsible for providing academic instruction to students at risk and monitoring their progress. Last year, Molly began work towards a National Board Certification in special education. She will obtain her certification in 2017.

Molly is an avid reader, enjoys cooking, shopping and doing yoga. In her free time she like to go for bike rides, loves the beach and spending time with her fiancé, family and friends.

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.
