Montessori Children, a preschool in Port Jefferson Station, will offer tutoring services in all subjects for grade-school aged children on Long Island. The program is customized and works around the students already busy after-school schedule.

children in school settingThe Montessori method allows students to learn at their own pace through their own interests.

Montessori Children of Port Jefferson Station typically caters to children ages 2½ to 5 years old with morning and afternoon preschool programs. In summer 2013, director Sharon Glasson will start offering a customizable tutoring program for children ages 5 to 9. “At that age they have football and dance, so we will work around their schedules,” Glasson says.

With the new tutoring program, Glasson aims to introduce elementary-aged students to the Montessori philosophy. The philosophy—what the preschool’s curriculum is based on—follows the belief that children cultivate their own desire to learn and become independent, self-motivated learners by experiencing things through all five senses. “Teachers don’t lecture, but instead demonstrate to the child so [he or she] will know how to use the activity to judge and correct themselves,” Glasson says.

Tutoring will be available in any area a child is struggling, including math and languages. Montessori Children’s common core curriculum helps children advance in any area, says Glasson.
