Why you need to plan

Posted on December 14th, 2018

What do you want to achieve in 2019

Why plan?

When you started tutoring did you have a goal in mind?

Did you start tutoring for a reason?

Maybe it was because you needed to earn some more money to subsidise another job.

Did you love teaching but working in a school meant too much time being spent on paperwork and administration? The bureaucracy and politics took all the pleasure away from the job.

You know you’re good at helping others learn and tutoring is a job which would allow you to do this.

When I started tutoring, I had 3 motivations:

To spend more time at the weekend with my children, the part time job I had dictated that I worked every Saturday from 9 until half 5.

I wanted to put my degree to use.

Learning is something that I love. I enjoy being creative and tutoring was something that would allow me to share my love of learning and creativity with others.

My plan was: If I could work 10 hours a week as a tutor, I could give up my part time job. I would be around a lot more for my own children and be doing a job where I could make a genuine difference to others.

That was my plan….

That plan never really planned out. I soon discovered that I have an inability to say no and I ended up working 5, then 6 then 7 days a week.

Spending time with my children became a dream of the past. But at the same time, they were growing up and gradually one by one they were leaving home.

I could now (and do) work 7 days a week and enjoy it.

Life changes and plans evolve but unless you know exactly where you are going how can you know can you know how to get there.

There is obviously the famous quote from Alice in Wonderland:

Famous Quote from Alice in Wonderland

Knowing what you want to become as a tutor is a bit like a car journey.

When you climb into the car and start to drive you will have a final destination in mind. Otherwise you would drive around in circles never knowing if you had reached your final destination or if you had not actually reached much further than the street end that you set off from.

In January of this year I knew I wanted a change. I love tutoring. Tutoring has introduced me to many amazing people. It was boosted my confidence and my knowledge in so many areas. But more and more people are needing the support of tutors and even though we are growing as a company we can not support every person in every subject.

My goal became to support others in building their own amazing tutoring businesses. I want to help others stand out as being tutors who give their heart and soul. People who make a genuine difference to those they support. Individuals who are passionate about offering support.

In order to achieve this, I have created an online membership group to help those who are serious about becoming tutors who want to be acknowledged as the best. They have a passion and a drive that will help them to succeed.

Each month I upload a training bundle which offers guidance on growing your tutoring business.

Each month a new training bundle is uploaded

As we look forward to 2019 many people will look back on what they have achieved in 2018. Many of us will smile with a sense of achievement. Many will feel frustrated because the year started so promisingly, but then the enthusiasm and energy petered out as the year progressed. Others had great plans that never became anything more than just a dream.

I am going to offer the December bundle for free. To help you prepare for 2019. So that this time next year you can look back and celebrate what you have achieved.


By knowing where you are going in 2019, you can take control and know the path that you will need to take to get there.

What’s the catch?

There isn’t one.

Like I say, there aren’t enough fantastic tutors! I know there are some because I have several who work for me at Starr Tutoring. I know that’s true because I am always been told what amazing work they do. How well they get on with the student. What a difference they have made to that person’s confidence.

I want to change that. I want to help you on your journey to become an amazing tutor with a business you are proud of. That way, more people all around the world will have access to the help that they so desperately need.

In the first video of the bundle we will look at where you are now.

The second video will question where you want to go and how are you going to get there?

Next, we will investigate what you need to learn to achieve these steps

Following on from this we will look at the importance of accountability.

You will need help (not necessarily mine) but no one can do everything perfectly themselves. There are many things as individuals we do not know or we can’t do.

But with a plan you will have a better understanding of whether what you are doing is working. If it is, you know the path to continue down. Then you can set up systems and start to reap the rewards.

I hope it is everything you ever dreamed it could be: and more.

Merry Christmas!
