Welcome to Cosmic Education Classes!

Cosmic Education

Welcome to Cosmic Education, creative classes for intuitive minds! I offer junior high and high school classes for ages 13 and up, using Charlotte Mason and Waldorf methods, with a little Montessori in the mix. I also tutor high school and community college students. Check out my tutoring web site here.

Cosmic Education is a term used by Maria Montessori, symbolizing the whole child in relation to the world and the universe. Montessori also called the lessons learned in Cosmic Education her Great Lessons. From this perspective, every topic of education can fall under one of the Great Lessons - The Beginning, Timeline of Life, Coming of Humans, History of Numbers, or History of Language.

So you could say, by learning via Cosmic Education, you are learning about life, the universe, and everything! Thanks to Douglas Adams for that terminology. I guess I could just say 42. Or, as my Marine Biology students say, the answer to everything is ... basalt!

With this site, I hope to introduce my classes, and compare various teaching methods I use in my classes. Since there are other sites that deal with more traditional materials, I focus on methods including Waldorf, Charlotte Mason, and Montessori.

Maria Montessori once said, "Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world." Homeschoolers do that task naturally, but they often become perplexed over the question - which curriculum is right, and which one is wrong? How can I help my child find his potential, his giftedness? I hope my classes help your children find their gifts through these eclectic and non-traditional forms of homeschooling.
