We're Pleased To Introduce: The Chicago Wilson Reading Center

The Alter Ego Concierge team is so excited to tell you about two of the wonderful tutors we have had the pleasure of working work with and their latest venture. Jessica Stachulski and Jane O'Mahoney have recently opened The Chicago Wilson Reading Center, one of the only centers of its expertise in the area--unless you're ready to head out of state!

The Center
At the Chicago Wilson Reading Center we know that everyone can read – unfortunately, not everyone is taught in a way that allows them to read.  We are committed helping students access the world of reading, a world that most of them thought was beyond their grasp.  With a combined experience of twenty years using the Wilson Reading System, we know that Wilson works.  We are currently the only reading center devoted to the Wilson in the greater Chicago area – the next closest center is in northern Indiana.

The Program
The Wilson Reading System (WRS) is based on the research of Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham and is designed to help the struggling reader who is unable to decode, or read, printed words.  It does have a comprehension component but the primary focus in on decoding and encoding (spelling).  WRS is multisensory and mastery-based so that each student progresses according to his/her speed.  WRS succeed where all other approaches have failed.  At the Chicago Wilson Reading Center we carefully screen each client to ensure that Wilson is the program for them.

The Providers

Jessica Stachulski: Jess is fully certified as a Level I Wilson tutor and is pursuing her Level II certification. She is a middle-school, special education teacher and has been using Wilson since 2003. She has taught students from Pre-K-8th grade with a variety of disabilities.

Jane O'Mahoney: Jane is also a Level I Wilson certified tutor and pursuing her Level II. She has been using Orton-Gillinham since 1981 and Wilson since 1997. She currently teaches 4th, 5th, and 6th multi-sensory education. Her teaching career has spanned 1st grade through freshman in college.
