Montessori Tutors offers after school and weekend tuition for Maths & English following the Montessori Ethos. The Montessori Method of Education, developed by Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children. Montessori’s method has been used for over 100 years in many parts of the world.

What is Montessori Tuition?
Over one hundred years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that children are born with a profound desire to interact with their environment in an intelligent way. She found that children flourished when they were left free to direct their own learning, within a prepared environment.
She pioneered a radical approach to education based on the scientific study of how children grow and learn, and the design of living and learning environments that meet their changing developmental needs.
The Montessori approach is characterised by the following:
- Promoting the love of learning
- Individualised learning
- Hands-on learning by doing
Promoting Love of Learning
Montessori Tutors are very enthusiastic and go above and beyond to provide the best education your child can get. They set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils. Our Tutors establish a safe and stimulating environment for pupils, rooted in mutual respect.
Moreover, they promote a love of learning children’s intellectual curiosity as well as encouraging pupils to take a responsible and conscientious attitude to
their own work and study.
Each child’s experience is unique to them. Personalised lessons are offered to individuals or small groups. This allows for a highly individualised interaction between the adult and each child. The adult knows intimately what each child has mastered, or where they need additional practice. The adult (called their Guide) mentors them towards ownership and responsibility for their own learning.
The result? Children develop concentration, confidence, self-discipline and a love of learning. And as one might expect, studies show these children also do better academically.
Hands-on Learning by Doing
The children learn through hands-on work rather than by listening to an adult speaking. They work using materials that are designed to help them master skills or areas of knowledge and understanding appropriate to their stage of development.
These Montessori materials have been created and refined through practical experience working with tens of thousands of children over the past 100 years.
