Release date: Sun 8th Aug 2021

Welcome to Season 2 of the UK Educators Community Podcast, where you’ll get a sneak peek into Educator’s diaries, as Syd asks her guests to run through one of their typical days.  On this episode, you’ll meet Julia Brand.

Julia came to teaching, after becoming disillusioned with a  high powered career in the city as a stocks trader.  She spend almost 10 years working in Primary schools, and doing some private tutoring on the side, before phasing out traditional schooling  and concentrating on her tutoring business full time.

As well as the above, there was MUCH EXCITEMENT about the upcoming Retreat for Educators in Marrakesh that the UK Educators Community has organised. To find out more or to join us, head over to https://ukeducators.com/retreat/

Key take aways

Your career needs to align with your personal values. The more mature you become, the clearer this is and more important it becomes.
The importance to adapt in business can't be underplayed. For example, any tutoring businesses who didn't go online in 2020 would have had a hard time surviving. Whereas the ones who embraced the change get a chance to thrive.
Once you've been tutoring for a long while, preparing for each session isn't always needed. Often students will speak about their concerns and struggles, and the sessions will go in different directions anyway. It's all about being flexible with your plans.
