About Us | Trust Tutoring [cached]

Trust Tutoring arose from the experimental work of Lee Havis in the field of Montessori education.
In the 1970's, while engaged in this work of Montessori teaching, he set up an in-home instructional program to help children learn in an optimal manner at home under the guidance of laws of nature. Based on his further work and discoveries with Montessori's scientific "new education", Lee established the International Montessori Trust in 1990 to conduct his tutoring program, now under the name "Trust Tutoring". Since then, he has served as the program's executive director to supervise and guide the development and operation of a number of all its various projects and activities. Originally, Lee used conventional evaluation testing with students in the program. However, when these proved burdensome and ineffective, he created a new standardized testing in 1995 based on the natural, systematic learning of children in basic academic areas. Lee Havis
