Our Homeschool Curriculum
The Elementary and Middle School curriculum is based upon both the Montessori method and Classical Education model. The Montessori method provides children with the foundation needed to locate information found in books, encyclopedias and other quality literary and informational sources. Montessori materials and curriculum also instill in students academic confidence earned through hands-on math and science exploration. Both Montessori and Classical Education provide students with opportunities to gain necessary skills that will allow them to effectively express information and original ideas in both oral and written form. Toco Hills Home Tutoring does not use Common Core-based textbooks or workbooks.
Academic Subjects Offered
Please find more details about academic subjects covered at the highlighted links below:In addition to academic subjects, homeschool students are also given the opportunity to learn about gardening, animal husbandry, and attend field trips related to their educational interests.
An Education for Life
There are subjects, beyond academics, that are more important than the current focus of high stakes testing in our public schools. Because Toco Hills Home Tutoring believes that an "education for life" will have far reaching and greater implications for success in adulthood, we have made it an essential aspect of the program. Some examples of an "education for life" would be:
Georgia law requires all home school students take the IOWA test of basic skills in the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th grades. Toco Hills Home Tutoring can assist your homeschool family in facilitating the taking of the IOWA. Any additional costs will be paid by the parents.
Still have questions??
If you are not sure if Toco Hills Home Tutoring is right for your child, please email or call. Based upon her experience working with students from a variety of educational backgrounds, Mrs. Stilman has learned that some children may need more structure and direction from the teacher, while other children need more freedom and opportunities for self-direction. Please be assured that Toco Hills Home Tutoring is not a "one size fits all" program.
