About the Founders

For almost ten years, we have had the pleasure of working with students with learning challenges. Both of us have worked in Chicago Public Schools before working at a private school for children with academic learning challenges. We have worked with students more than three grade levels below their current grade levels; this is not just frustrating for the children but for the families  as well. This is why we formed Be Able Learning Services. It is our goal to provide remediation and academic support to students, while also supporting parents in their goals of ensuring schools are giving their children every service and accommodation they are entitled to. Additionally, we work with schools and teachers to ensure that each child receives the highest level of support possible.

Experience

We have in depth experience providing individualized tutoring and remediation for students from first grade to college in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and executive functioning. We also provide test preparation for students preparing for the Independent Schools Entrance Exam, Catholic High School Placement Test, Selective Enrollment Exam, and the NWEA MAP Test.

 

We are able to design and implement lessons using various modalities to reach students with learning differences, while collaborating with teachers and parents to design an optimal learning plan. We are familiar with a variety of support tools, both digital and concrete, which can be provided to a student to support an reading, writing, or math struggles.
