What are the principles of the Montessori Pedagogy ?
This is a fundamental notion of Montessori pedagogy. Children are free to choose the activity they wish to do amongst those offered to them, provided they have already "seen" this activity with the treacher, and can spend the time they want. They also have the right to speak and to move as they see fit in the room, as long as their environment is respected.
It goes hand in hand with the notion of freedom and applies as much to attitude as to corrections. Rather than passively waiting for corrections by a third, the child is asked to identify his own errors. Especially since, according to the Montessori method, it is not so much to have "right" or "wrong" as to practice to do better, to improve oneself in the activity.
Action on the periphery
According to Maria Montessori, it is more beneficial to act on one's environment rather than on the child themselves. In practice, it is for example to speak less loudly to encourage them to do the same, rather than order him to do so. Or, put a furniture shoe and slippers at your fingertips, rather than asking them to put them away or look for them in a closet.
Respect for the rhythm of each child
It does not matter if the child is fast or slow, as long as they are focused. Montessori pedagogy emphasizes respect for the rhythm of each child, and recommends not to put labels on children ("you are slow", "you are fast"), at the risk of enclosing it in this qualifier . And Maria Montessori adds that the pace of each can vary according to the times of the day, the activity, the different periods of its development, and that the learning of children is done in fits and starts.
Learning by experience
Abstraction is not transmitted. This is the postulate from which the Montessorian reflection is based. To appropriate the concepts, the child must manipulate, tangibly and concretely, with his five senses. Again, this involves the use of adapted equipment. It is for example, to practice maths (ten, hundred etc.) by using pearls. Children can weigh them, compare them, and integrate, by sight and touch, their differences or their proportionality.
While some activities are presented in small groups, most are done individually, so that children learn the concepts in a personal way.
To respect the child is to invite them to respect others, and thus to prepare them for a harmonious social life. The purpose of Montessorian education is to help the child acquire an inner discipline.

Speaking-Agency: The company
Speaking - Agency is a company created in 2009 by 2 young founders: Antoine Gentil & Julien Viaud. With their respective experiences abroad (USA, Canada), the 2 young entrepreneurs realized that the best way to learn a language is to immerse oneself in it from a very young age (by spending time with natives whose mother tongue is the one you want to learn) From this observation is born the concept of Speaking-Agency. Its goal is to enable everyone (children, adults, teenagers) to enjoy language immersion without having to travel abroad.
For this, Speaking-Agency recruits profiles from all walks of life, able to speak and transmit a foreign language. Whatever your age, if you love languages, contact with students and pass on your knowledge, look no further, we have the job you need.
In addition, Speaking-Agency has developed its own teaching methods, with the help of Maria Kihlstedt & John Herbstritt respectively senior lecturer in psycholinguistics at Paris X - CNRS and specialist in language rhetoric at the University of Berkeley. Speaking-Agency offers its Speakers educational tools in order to give you tips, games, tracks to explore with your students. This will allow you to both start quietly home English teacher activity if you are a beginner or add a new string to your bow if you are already an experienced language teacher.
Speaking-Agency is headquartered in Paris, in the 12th arrondissement, at 27 rue de Citeaux. Paris being the capital, it is very easy to access regardless of the means of transport used. We settled in Paris was a choice motivated by our desire to be close and accessible vis-à-vis our Speakers.
However, we do not abandon our Speakers located in the four corners of France. We regularly organize events in other French cities (wine & cheese, picnics, speed matchings, etc.) to consolidate our relationship with our dear employees. These events are there to allow us to meet you, and to give you a great opportunity to meet other Speakers who are in the same situation as you.
