“I have thoroughly enjoyed taking the syllabus course from Karen. As already a certified Montessori teacher , I took this course as refresher course . It has provided me with new , fresh ,and valued information. I am presently using the albums (manuals) in my teaching practice. I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in getting a good foundation in the Montessori Methods and Principles. “

“Karen Tyler, Founder and Owner of KHT Montessori, is truly a class act!If you are a homeschool mama and want to have a solid foundation of all things Montessori for young children, and if you would love to learn from a very knowledgeable, compassionate, professional person, then KHT Montessori is for you! Karen gets it… She gets that there may very well be great reasons (ranging from spiritual to physical, from financial to philosophical) WHY we homeschool and why we choose to utilize Montessori materials and the Montessori philosophy in our homes. She gets the notion of a Montessori inspired home and also gets the idea that some of us choose to not only use Montessori but also to incorporate some other materials and philosophies into something that works for our children. She gets that we are all on our own life journey and that one size does not fit all with respect to educational settings, for some children have very specific environmental or learning needs, so Karen has been willing to share her expertise in helping us to navigate how to try to “do Montessori” in the home.Karen gives it… She gives freely of herself, her experiences, her materials, her insights… She has made her online training, her excellent albums, and her lectures, essays, helpful hints very accessible. She is incredibly generous. She does not charge nearly what her training is worth…she wants to share her wealth of knowledge and does so out of the goodness of her heart.Although I have additional degrees in education and have classroom teaching experience, going through Karen’s program really helped me to chart a course for homeschooling my sons. Homeschooling is a whole other “ballgame” than being in the classroom in a school setting, regardless of whether it is public or private, traditional or progressive, etc”

“Dear Karen, Your training course was absolutely wonderful!  My staff and I took the course and absolutely loved it!  There was a lot to love about it!  I loved all the wonderful print-outs of lesson plans, nomenclatures, and much more!  I loved the easy access to you, personally, should I or my staff have questions, or needed to consult you in any way!  I loved that we could reply to others who were taking the course and were able to hear their concerns, suggestions and challenges, or just get to know them as teachers or perspective teachers.  I loved that we could set our own pace, taking the course over either one or two years and reading, studying, etc., when it was convenient and appropriate for us individually.  I loved that we received a beautiful, very pro- fessional, and polished certificate to proudly display at the completion of the course.  (Since my staff and I took the 2-year course, I appreciate so much the fact that you could advance us a certificate upon completion of each year, therefore, satisfying the state requirements for training.) This was most helpful and allowed us to meet the requirements for the state, each of the two years. Again, your course was amazingly thorough, highly interesting, very convenient, and actually fulfilled all the requirements my staff and I had both concerning Montessori and our own personal needs for knowledge. In a word, the course was exceptional!! Karen, I can’t thank you enough and plan on having my newest staff members take the course as soon as you open up enrollment for the next course!  If you add anything further for my staff and myself who took the course recently, we would sign-up immediately for additional courses/ training!!  I fully endorse your course and hope any others reading this would not hesitate to enroll.”

“I took NAMC and now taking Karen’s class. I am biased to Karen’s class. Her albums are more in terms of content, details. She is always available to answer questions/confusion. And she explains it in a layman’s terms. Save yourself some money. If you are enrolled in her class – the curriculum & any questions is something she can easily help you out with. NAMC shows you the album the prerequisites. On the other hand, Karen shares her “order” in presenting the materials. I am taking my AMS training right now but believe me, yours is still more comprehensive and detailed in a lot of ways”

“This course has helped me to have a career in Montessori. I got to know about the course at a time when I couldn’t afford any on site or online training. I was captivated by the affordability and the richness of the course. The albums are very insightful and easy to understand. The lectures are very thorough and relevant in the field. The course director Karen Tyler, is always available to answer my questions, even after I finished the course. I really appreciate you Karen Tyler. Thank you for putting up this course and making it so affordable, you have given me a source of income and a career.”

“Dear Karen, I am one of your Fast Track students and I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate very much your course! And all your efforts to make it interesting and usefull. It made a huge difference in my professional life. When I started your course last year, in december, I knew only a few things about Montessori. I consider your course to be the only chance I could have. It was sent to me by God. I am sure about that. God wanted me to change the way I see education and He showed me the path. And guess what, today I work in a Montessori school, here in Belgium! Of course, I still have a lot to learn, but This is the best thing that could happen to me. Thank you for making a difference in my life. May God bless you every day with His presence!”

“Hi Karen,
 I was a member of Karen’s first online class. I had received my Montessori certification, worked as a Montessori teacher, and owned my own Montessori school previously. I had also taken time to homeschool my  two children through high school. When I studied for my master’s degree in Early Childhood Studies in England, I wanted to refresh my Montessori knowledge. I appreciated the online format and the thoroughness of Karen’s course and Montessori albums. The practical life album was extremely helpful as a reference when I designed my dissertation on teaching courtesy in a traditional nursery setting.
Since I started blogging at LivingMontessoriNow.com, I’ve found that many of my readers would like to take Montessori training but are unable to attend a traditional Montessori training program. I love being able to refer them to Karen’s course. Karen’s expertise, affordable prices, and care for her students make her course a wonderful option for homeschoolers who can’t attend a formal training program and any Montessori teachers or school directors who would like a refresher.”

“Dear Karen,

I just want to say thank you for such a wonderful presentation of this course. It’s amazing how much knowledge is being transferred and I must confess that personally, I haave learnt so much and am still learning. It’s so wonderful to see basic skills that you really don’t consider being taught. No wonder some kids are so well rounded and you begin to wonder…I am really looking forward to seeing the impact of this learning on myself first and then on my kids (even the older ones) as well as to children I will be opportuned to teach in future using this method.Your papers are always thought-provoking and so true. I have studied a lot and even have an MBA, but this course has by far been the most enlightening. I just wish I had done this earlier! Keep up the great work, Karen and looking forward to more wonderful materials.”
