Homeschool Tutorial Services

Homeschooled elementary students (ages 5-12) are empowered to become confident, competent students. Our classroom is a unique environment in which instruction begins with concrete realities, adding one difficulty at a time, moving sequentially into abstract theory. The development of critical thinking skills occurs naturally in this age level and in this type of prepared environment. Active learning with hands-on tasks supports the growth of social skills, and the ability to reflect and work things out. These are qualities needed throughout life to be successful.

In the Elementary program students are given opportunity to work together or alone to pursue individual or group interests. Each student’s creativity, independent thinking, and personal responsibility are facilitated by the prepared environment and their tutors.

This is also the age when the child develops a moral sense, learning what is "fair" and "not fair."  The students strive to find how they can play an important and meaningful role in their class, family, community, and life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 
As a parent-led co-operative and homeschool tutorial service, BMCH is committed to supporting your homeschool goals through supplementing your homeschool program in the following areas:

 

Language Arts:  

  • Individualized tutoring in reading to meet your child where they are academically

  • Individualized and group tutoring in grammar and writing through the Montessori language arts materials

  • Small group literature study focused on critical thinking skills and literary analyses

 

Math:

  • Individualized tutoring using concrete Montessori materials to supplement the chosen homeschool math curriculum. Montessori materials allow students to easily make the leap from “math you see” to “math in your head”

  • Individual and group mathematics enrichment through problem solving, critical thinking and advanced mathematical and scientific puzzles

 

Science:

  • Project-based and experimental science following the Montessori Cosmic Curriculum.  This year the curriculum focus is on Earth and Space Science and Botany.  The project-based learning following the scientific method allows students to make cross-curricular connections and explore the wonders of the world.

 

Social Studies:

  • Project-based history, geography, and cultural studies using the Montessori Cosmic Curriculum. This year the curriculum focus is on the timeline of life, individual family histories, physical geography and climate, and cultural/historical/geographic studies of the Asian continent.

  • Social and emotional learning:

  • Plenty of outdoor play with other children during our daily “lunch bunch”

  • On-going character studies focused on conflict resolution, respect, compassion, and citizenship

  • Development of executive functioning skills through self-directed education and project based learning.
