ONLINE/OFFLINE TUITION: Difficulties are Always Our Stepping Stone
Learning Mandarin based on Montessori methods, through rhymes, games, stories, and repeatable activities at home.
Theoretically Montessori is a physical-touch and face-to-face method to support the children's development, however, Corona-virus makes it difficult and dangerous to happen. Should we stop to support our children to build up their bright futures? Well...
Montessori Mandarin Private Tuition comes, and with the children's parents/carers, we change the difficulties to be the children's stepping stones. It is a Teacher-Child-Parents interaction e-classes.
With half adult led, and half of the children's self-chosen activities including repeatable activities at home, to support child's independent thinking and learning in Chinese/Mandarin, and to cultivate child's independence. The cloud classes are carefully prepared to support independence in thought and action. Mandarin social interactions naturally occur around the practicalities of community living. Mutual respect, self-discipline and concentration arise spontaneously in an atmosphere of freedom, in a place where there are interesting things to do.
