Coaching & Courses

Sometimes you just need a little inspiration and collaboration to make a change for the better. I am currently offering group coaching on the topics of child development, Montessori, and homeschooling.

I find that students receive the most benefit when attending some of the lectures and discussions LIVE in real time, just like an in-person classroom. However, not everyone is able to make a live schedule work; my courses all provide the best of both worlds. The video replays are available instantly after I log off if you prefer to watch and comment at your own convenience. I will still be there, replying back to you when you have questions no matter when you watch. What I look for in all of these sessions is opportunities for you to dig in as deeply as you like into the content of the course, applying the information presented in a hands-on, practical way in your real life with your children.

14 Days to montessori play

Babies and toddlers love to play. How do you know what toys or activities are developmentally on target? We'll provide suggestions for toys for each age between 0 & 3 based on the skills children are learning. We'll also spend time evaluating toys based on Montessori principles and troubleshoot common issues for parents of young children, like how to communicate your toy preferences to your relatives. This course is co-taught with my good friend Nicole Kavanaugh. For ages 0-3.

The winter session is planned for December 2018.

Confidence in the kitchen

Do you have a budding chef in your kitchen? If not, would you like to help your child become one? In this course, we talk about the reality of cooking with your child in the kitchen, helping your little one to become independent in preparing snacks and meals and serving them to others. We will also show you how to break down a recipe into five different levels of independence so that your child can learn the skills needed to become fully competent and confident in the kitchen. This course is co-taught with my good friend Nicole Kavanaugh.For ages 2-6.
