Tulin

 

Tulin is a state-certified school psychologist, and comes to Chicago Home Tutor with over 15 years of experience working with youth in a variety of settings. She is looking forward to working with youth in this new capacity with Chicago Home Tutor. Tulin started her work with children and adults with disabilities in high school, working for Western DuPage Special Recreation Association, and continued her volunteering with various outreach organizations while an undergrad studying psychology at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Tulin graduated with a Specialist in School Psychology degree from Illinois State University in 2007. She first worked for LaGrange Area Department of Special Education, based in Lyons Township High School. Looking to gain more experience with Response to Intervention and the problem-solving process, Tulin moved to working for two elementary schools in Indian Prairie District 204. After three years in which she felt her skills had grown exponentially in terms of evaluating student needs and implementing interventions ranging from academic to behavioral, individually, group and classwide, Tulin returned to working with high school students in the district’s alternative high school, Indian Plains. There she furthered her skills in addressing individual interventions to address executive functioning deficits and social-emotional and behavioral functioning. In addition, she gained classroom teaching experience, developing the curriculum and teaching three sections of a social-emotional and life skills course for six semesters. Tulin left this position to pursue her life-long dream of completing her doctorate, in order to someday help change educational policy to better meet student needs. Tulin spends her free time volunteering and running, preferably together.

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.
