Hi! If we haven’t met yet, I'm Aubrey, and I've been teaching my own children at home using Montessori philosophy for the past 12 years. I have two elementary-age boys that I am still homeschooling. We live in San Francisco, California, and I absolutely love it here.
When you learn to see child-led learning as a way of life, you see educational opportunities out in the world everywhere you go!
I take a low-key, flexible, nature-centric approach.
If you want a high-pressure homeschool program for your child focused purely on academic achievement, working with me won’t get you there!
Children under the age of 6 need a strong rhythm, but they also need lots of unstructured time because at this age, play is the way they learn, and for young children, all learning is naturally fun!
I am a full advocate of Montessori and other progressive methods of education. I always have been. I have an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and a certification from the American Montessori Society for lower elementary as well as experience in the Montessori toddler classroom. I taught in public schools for many years before choosing to stay at home with my own children.
Believe me - an educational background gives you a lot of knowledge of child development and pedagogy, but it doesn't necessarily help you know how to teach your own children!
The fields are similar but also very different. In this course I explain why and how. And I'll give you tips and tricks I've learned along my journey from other homeschooling parents.
You don't need your home to look like a classroom or even to purchase the expensive materials you may have seen online in order to provide a Montessori education for your children.
You are your child's first and most influential teacher, and I promise you -- you can do this!
This is the course that I wish had been available to me when I had preschool-aged children. I'm going to be on your side the whole time, cheering you on, as you walk toward a successful approach to educating your child at home.
