ABOUT ME...my journey to a successful online tutoring business I love!
Let me see if I’ve got this right:
*You’re an educator
*You might be a school teacher, a tutor, a teaching assistant or a retired teacher
*You KNOW that tutoring online is the future
…You just don’t know where to start
Let me help you with that!
You aren’t making nearly the money you deserve
You’re exhausted from all that goes on as a teacher- lesson planning, parenting guidance, admin and oh yes, TEACHING.
Student class sizes and unruly student behaviours are making it so hard for you to teach effectively …there’s little joy in it any more
You get home drained from your day, but still have more work to do – parent emails, papers to grade…(taking you away from your family)
Government legislation dictating how you do your job and admin shoving the newest curriculum at you is making you craaaaaazzzzy!
Not so much. NOT any more
You love teaching, but teaching in schools?
Not so much. NOT any more. It’s a HARD job that takes up most of your time and energy. And if you’ve got your own family to take care of, it’s even more challenging.
Or if you tutor face- to face :
You have a limited pool of students you can tutor
You’re tired of travelling to their houses or having them come to yours- and having those impromptu parent conversations that eat into your own time
Missed appointments are cutting into your earnings
The rates you can charge are limited to the norm for your area in order to stay competitive
Or if you
You aren’t sure how to tap into the worldwide market
You’re working a lot but not making the income you want.
Your online presence and marketing strategy aren’t bringing in the students ( or maybe you don’t even have an online presence or strategy- oh no ! )
Let me help you with that!
I’m Deany Judd and I love teaching!
Overworked, under-supported and wondering how my Masters Degree had brought me into a career where I made less per hour than the manicurist did.
BUT I’ve spent the last 8 years building my own online tutoring practice with students in New York, Germany, France, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, and all over the UK.
It’s no secret that most of the world’s education systems are broken. It’s no different in Scotland, where I live.
My passion for teaching hadn’t prepared me for the piles of administrative paperwork, the tedium of working with the same curriculum year after year, the tyranny of the bells that always rang just when I was getting to the good stuff.
Nevertheless, I stayed in the system, because I loved my students.
I plodded along for eight years, but when my children came along, I knew it was time for a change.
I needed to be able to work from home, on my own schedule, with an hourly wage that would let me support my growing family.
So I switched careers, and became a freelance writer for a number of national newspapers.
The pay was great. The flexibility was even better.
But with every year that passed, I found myself missing my students more and more.
I was ready to return to the classroom…
but on MY terms.
Once I started researching my options, I soon discovered that modern technology was the answer.
With the power of the internet I could teach anyone, anywhere in the world, from the comfort of my home or using the Wifi at the hotel on a family holiday.
It wasn’t long after I started my online tutoring practice that the demand for tutoring quickly surpassed what I could offer alone.
But I soon learned that with technology and a digital classroom, I could tutor more than one person at a time.
I soon enlisted the minds of other ambitious tutors, and the Star Student Online School was formed.
Together, we were harnessing the power of technology to facilitate learning all around the world while enjoying the financial rewards and the flexibility we had always wanted.
These days, I get emails from countless tutors and teachers, saying they want to tutor/teach online, but they’re just not sure how or where to start.
That’s why I’m here:
to help you get started.
I’ve created a super simple step-by-step blueprint to help tutors and teachers around the world get their online practices up and running.
In this training, we’ll cover:
- How to take your expertise and package it to tutor or teach online
- How to use technology to change the way you work
- How to think like an entrepreneur first and an educator second – and the difference that makes!
