Hello everyone!

My name is Ali Benmerzouga, from Cleveland-Ohio, an NFB member since 2015 or so (Suzanne Turner is my Chapter President), legally blind since 2012, unemployed since 2011, a Hadley Institute student since 2014  and actively looking for a job through Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities  (OOD) through a job developer since 2015, I believe. In what follows, is a short version of my resume.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (Electronics), A master in Engineering, another master in Operations

Research and a PhD in Operations Research. I earned my two masters and the

PhD from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

I have a 20+ years college teaching experience in mathematics and currently tutoring students in mathematics. This option is not really an income source - I haven't seen any students for the last 16 months or so. I did post my tutoring services on Craigslist since early 2014.

Furthermore, since May 2016 and with the help of OOD, I am an independent contractor of North Coast Education Services at Solon, Ohio. I have been awarded the 2017 Tutor of the year.

I can also serve as a student adviser in academia, a curriculum

designer/developer, project supervisor as well as a lecturer/speaker about

many subjects/issues related to visually impaired individuals like me that I have

learned from the 30 courses or so that I took at Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

I do use the computer extensively through Windows 10 using JAWS 2018 as my screen reader, additionally, I use Outlook email, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Microsoft Excel 2016, Microsoft Word 2016, etc. Also, I do use my iPhone for calling and texting and some

other features through Siri and Voiceover.

I am also good in braille both grade 1 and 2. I do read and write braille. I am currently a Braille Mentor for the last six months or so (a program organized by OOD and NFB-Ohio).

I am currently a student at Hadley. As I mentioned above, I have taken numerous courses and lately I have been selected to be the recipient of the 2018 Hadley Student Award that I will receive in October 2018.

I do exercise 3 to 4 times a week using my treadmill in the basement. I am a

good runner. I read lots of digital talking books (all kinds.) I love learning new stuff. I am a member of Cleveland Sight Center Book Discussion Group. I watch TV (Sports, and News.)

The above are some highlights of my background, experience, what I can do and my potentials.

I would really appreciate your help, advice and guidance in helping me land a job and gain my financial independence.

Feel free to ask in case of any questions. I can provide my resume and cover letter, if required by any potential


Thank you so much for your help and understanding in advance.

Have a great Labor Day weekend.

Ali Benmerzouga, PhD
