LEARNING DIFFERENCES & COLLEGE SUCCESSRead More
We offer students in grades K–6 a multisensory approach to reading, writing, and math. Our multisensory techniques are rooted in Orton-Gillingham principles and compliment common school interventions, such as: The Wilson Reading Program or The Barton Reading and Spelling System.
“My son began third grade with his teachers very concerned about his reading progress. After a few months of Schafer Center tutoring, he scored ABOVE where he needed to be for the year (and it isn't yet over). As a teacher myself, I appreciate how they constantly evaluate and work on the specific individual skills a student needs. I can't say enough about the difference these tutoring sessions have made.”
Located in Broadview Heights, Ohio we offer tutoring for students who have IEPs and/or a diagnosed learning difference, including: dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia—as well as those who just need a little extra academic support. Our multisensory structured literacy lessons, based on phonological-coding research and OG principles, systematically teach the structure of the English language.
If your child is currently on an IEP or learning plan, and receiving intervention, such as The Wilson Reading Program or Barton Reading and Spelling System, we can reinforce those teachings and help close the achievement gap more quickly.
One-on-one tutoring sessions are one hour long and may take place once or twice per week. During sessions, students will receive instruction in:
We also offer tutoring in multisensory math with an emphasis on computation and reasoning. All of our sessions include regular assessments to monitor academic progress and we regularly supply feedback to parents. Virtual tutoring sessions are now available.

Please give us some information about your child and their tutoring needs. A Schafer Center representative will contact you to discuss how we can help.
What is OG-based multisensory instruction, anyway?
Our commitment to this style of teaching is rooted in decades of research on how students with learning differences best retain information.
