Friends who play together, stay together. So, Let's Play...
And yep, I did fail math.
As a recovering perfectionist (seriously!) and former Starbucks addict, I can now say it was failure that made me a great teacher and later on, a highly-sought-after tutor.
As an author, entrepreneur and life-long learner, I now understand the meaning of success and it's not all about getting an A on that test or acceptance to the best college (like we're so often taught in school).
Read on to discover how my failure and my new-found-understanding of success, made me great.

My first paid tutoring session was in my most dreaded subject...math.
And I was scared to death.
See, I had failed math my entire life AND was about to get paid to teach a high school student my worst possible subject.
I wasn't a math teacher.
I was barely a certified English teacher.
I hadn't gone to school to be a teacher and certainly didn't have any educational degrees that really qualified me to teach.
Terror Turns To Inspiration
What happened during that first tutoring session was both terrifying and inspiring!
As the first ever online-educator-for-tutors, Jill began offering her signature Center 4 Learning Tutoring Business In a Box training system in June of 2012
and her courses have since been enjoyed (and rocked) by hundreds of teachers, retired professionals, college students and homeschool moms (& dads!) to date.

A challenge is a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone. We often run a free 5 day challenge for those interested in learning how to tutor (and nope, you don't need to be a teacher to tutor)! Plus, we're rocking 3 & 7 day challenges for kids and parents on building self-esteem, improving writing skills and understanding how to learn!
My focus has always been on my students. However, I learned more than a decade ago that to help more kids & make a bigger impact, I needed to talk to the adults in their lives. Whether it's free video lessons found here or a FaceBook Live about starting a tutoring business or how to help your child build confidence, you'll want to press play today.
Check out the library of in-depth articles that cover topics such as starting a tutoring business, how to get students, what to charge and what to teach. Plus stories from inside and outside the classroom, Dear Education Lady blasts and some of our 52 Life Lessons series that make you rethink this whole education thang, plus a heck of a lot more!
