Back in May I had an interview with a couple who were looking for a private tutor for their four-year-old twins. Last night the mother called me, after the family had come back to town from vacation, to tell me that the job was mine if I still wanted it!
I'm so excited because I'm going to be working for a couple who are very invested in their children's education. They want a private tutor to teach their kids reading and math skills so they will be ahead when they are old enough to start school.
I start Monday but have no fear, lol, I'll still be around Gather. My pupils just turned four and their parents already have them taking golf, tennis, and swim lessons. Apparently they are trying to raise the next Tiger Woods, lol. They will have their sports lessons in the mornings and their academic lessons in the afteroon which is cool because I'm not a morning person unless I actually have to be.
This is the best news that I've gotten in a while. I had applied with the Broward and Dade county school boards after graduation, but with budget cuts looming and hundreds of teachers already laid off the chances of getting a job in the public system were very slim. Anyway that's my good news for the day.
Do you have any good news to share?
