Homeschool Tutorial Services
View our 2022-2023 Fact Sheet Here

Children ages 5-12 who enroll in our homeschool tutorial will receive customized group lessons in language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. These supplemental lessons are designed to help guardians fulfill their homeschool goals and meet Maryland homeschool requirements in the context of a parent-directed home-education program.

Lessons use the Montessori pedagogy and follow the Montessori “Cosmic Curriculum” to give students a wholistic view of the world, develop problem solving skills through research and project-based learning, and are designed to meet or exceed public school standards in the subjects offered by the tutorial.  

At home, children follow-up the tutorial lessons using tutorial-provided Montessori-aligned materials, living books, and curated internet resources to continue learning. Children may also have the opportunity to engage with their peers while at home through an online platform. Children and families also have the opportunity to enroll in additional “skill reinforcement / work period” sessions that allow children to work with the Montessori materials at the tutorial, receive extra individual help in language arts and math, and collaborate on group projects in person.
