Someone asked me why I am doing all of this, especially as the website is starting to take up more of my time. Well...I am continually learning, and adding to my own teaching resources so that I can be more effective as a teacher/tutor. Basically, I still enjoy it!
What really makes my day, though, is when I connect with people who are on the same wavelength as me regarding education. They want their children to reach their potential through the process of becoming independent, self-motivated learners. They also want their children to enjoy learning (more difficult to do as examinations loom nearer).
I have had the opportunity in the last two weeks to communicate with families in different parts of the world (not in the USA or UK). We all share the same mindset towards education and towards helping our children be successful on their own. These families have found the material on this website helpful for their own educational paths. (yay)
This week, I was smiling to myself because I know I am not alone in wanting students to be successful by following their individualised educational paths (whether in the school system or not). Thank you to the parents who validated my educational perspective by echoing a similar mindset.
