Online Coaching With Individual Attention

My name is Chelle Schauben. I am an online tutor helping elementary school students with learning differences, including ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, or sensory processing disorders.

I am certified in Orton-Gillingham's Approach to Teaching Literacy as an Associate and Classroom Educator.

I have successfully tutored children using the Pride Reading Program based on the Orton-Gillingham structured literacy multisensory curriculum.

I am a Para Professional for the Oakland Unified School District at Glenview Elementary School.

I have a dual Bachelor's degree in English and Communications and Multimedia, a Master's Degree in English and Creative Writing, and a Master's Degree in Educational Therapy.

I am continuing my study into COVID-19 and Distance Learning, Students With Disabilities, And Assistive Technology for my third Master's research thesis in Urban Education. I have been accepted into the Doctorate Program in Transformative School Leadership at Northeastern University for Fall 2023.

I am confident I can help your child enhance their reading skills and improve academically.

Not the traditional one-size-fits-all approach:

  • Lessons specifically tailored to your child's developmental level. 
  • Age-appropriate lessons.
  • A creative and collaborative environment.

My tutoring program uses the Pride Reading Program based on the Orton Gillingham Method.

  • Children labeled "struggling learners" are often children who are naturally "right-brained."
  • We often think of these children as slow or not as intelligent as their peers.
  • Nothing could be farther from the truth!

Right-brained children think more "globally" and often experience

  • Confusion
  • Anxiety
  • Cannot sort out their thoughts, or 
  • Determine what is relevant.  

Traditional teaching methods focus on skills that follow a set sequence.

  • Right-brained kids learn better in context.
  • Right-brained students often "understand" the answer,
  • Yet cannot access or explain the steps they have used.

Right-brained children do not get the individualized attention they need.

Established teaching methods use a left-brained approach that is counter to how right-brained children naturally learn.

Right-Brain Learning

Hemispheric dominance is distinctive in each child. Roger W. Sperry, a psychologist, first introduced the left brain and right brain hypothesis in the 1960s.

Right Brain Functions:

  • Art awareness
  • Creativity
  • Imagination
  • Intuition
  • Insight
  • Holistic thought
  • Music awareness
  • 3-D Forms
  • Left hand control

Left Brain Functions:

  • Analytical thought
  • Logic
  • Language
  • Reasoning
  • Science & math
  • Writing
  • Numbers skills
  • Right hand control

Being aware of what hemisphere of the brain is dominant in your child is central in determining which style of learning he/she requires to be successful.
