If you’ve ever…
Stayed awake until 2am scrolling through Montessori Activities Pinterest boards…
Dropped half your paycheck on a generic Montessori album and some painted wood materials that 4-year-old Mariposa ignores for her crayons…
Stressed so hard about little Niles getting “behind” that you slaved through worksheets together all day…
…then I have some good news for you. It doesn’t have to be this way!
Waking up each morning with a simple plan for the school day (that someone else created for you!)
Knowing exactly which Montessori materials to buy, and how to use them to capture Eugenia’s interest and meet her needs (because they’ve been carefully and professionally selected for you!)
Peacefully giving Chauncey an engaging, age-appropriate, hands-on lesson, then kicking back with a cup of tea while he works independently.
Thank you SO much for the suggestions! I have put this into practice and love the results.

Even if you have:
Tried homeschooling before, and drowned…
Other little ones at home that need your attention…
A million other things going on…
You can do Montessori homeschooling. (With a little help from yours truly!)
Allow me to introduce myself…
I’m Jean Marie, your Montessori home consultant.
I’ve been teaching in one way or another for more than half my life, and this is what I’m good at:
- Breakin’ it down, step-by-step
- Translating complex ideas into “I get that!” terms anyone can understand
- Noticing and cheering-on growth and good moments
- Focusing on one thing at a time for forward momentum
- Sweeping away the fluff and getting to the heart of Montessori
After years of teaching reading, swimming, and piano lessons, and handling my fair-share of tricky disciplinary situations, (big love to all the kids I’ve ever nannied) I dove head first and chin tucked into the Montessori world. Outfitted with my Association Montessori Internationale Primary diploma and a Master’s in Montessori Education, I taught in three Montessori classrooms, a little over 3-thousand miles apart.
On the side, I started getting questions. Mostly from friends. Questions like: Should I be doing something about the way Uma holds her pencil? Is this random box of Montessori-looking beads I found on eBay ok? How do I deal with lying?
Oooooh, this is fun, I thought. And consulting I did go.
Montessori is my jam. I get it, I love it, I spread it on toast with butter for breakfast.
And I’m passionate about bringing that sweet Montessori goodness into your home and family.
I am learning SO MUCH! I appreciate it more than you can imagine!
