Tutoring Services

We offer students in grades K–6 a multisensory approach to reading, writing, and math. Our 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.


Located in Broadview Heights, Ohio, the Schafer Center offers tutoring for students who have diagnosed learning differences, like dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia—as well as those who just need a little extra academic support. We offer multisensory structured literacy lessons based on phonological-coding research and OG principles to 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 your student 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:

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Decoding and word study
  • Sight word recognition
  • Spelling
  • Fluency
  • Vocabulary
  • Oral expressive language development
  • Comprehension

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 via web-based conferencing software. Students can grow their academic skills right at home!

“The Schafer Center’s tutoring helps students understand and comprehend material—it’s so much more than homework help.”
“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.”
