    yes they are, but pretty much everyone's gone

    i'm okay, i missed my one lesson today so i've just been doing some maths and stuff. i still need to go shopping before sainsbury's closes :teehee:

    how are you, loz?
    Spoiler:

    I'd delete that top line if I were you, before you get more warnings and get banned :sad:


    Thats not too bad, at least it was productive anyway. I need to do some maths in a bit, but its parametrics and I'm not too good at it. I want to get a tutor, I've just asked my old maths teacher who is amazing but its £25 an hour I might be able to afford it but its £100 less in my savings a month. Oh well :rolleyes:

    I'm ok, really tired and trying to relax with some cider. Making me sleepy :lol: Done an 8 hour shift at work today and finally sorted my tax out :woo:

    And get to Sainbury's! :whip2:

    Yeah, I think 15-20 is the norm, but I guess some can make a case for going higher than that.

    fyi, I would charge you £10 an hour. £15 if I have to drive ~15 mins or more. Something like that anyway.

    Yea I had an hours lunch break though, its a full days work (9-1 and 2-6) but I enjoy it. I think its worth my tutor though, he taught me from year 8 to year 12 and he really knows how I work and understand things (plus I have all his tricks which I still use to this day, so it is logical)

    I'll just have to make a budget that is all and especially now I'm weaning my way off of chocolate and that then I will have some more money

    Yea the tax was for my bike, my current one doesn't run out until the 28th but I wanted to get it done. Its only £15 a year compared to like £120 for a car so I can't complain :p:

    Depends where you live :p: I live in the south west.

    It makes sense coz he is an epoc teacher, he's taught me for 4 years (Yr 8 -Yr 12) so he knows how I work and that, and I understand things when he explains them to me so the money is well worth it.

    Yeah, I wasn't suggesting I do it for you. I would never go out of London to tutor someone! But that's how much I would charge.

    Tis a good rate, especially if you are a good teacher (which by your posts I can tell your teling the truth)

    Maybe you should set up an agency. now and just before exams is when people want tutors, and £10 ph in London you can't go wrong!

    I don't really have the know-how/contacts/proper teaching experience to set up my own agency, but I am currently doing a few shifts here and there at a learning centre, so that's a start. Get a bit of word of mouth going and everything. I do quite like tutoring, but once I get a full-time job then I don't know how much time I'll have for it!

    Nahh thats true. I know an A level student who finished his A levels (AAAB in the end in Maths, Chem, Bio and Physics) and he made a bit of money in his gap year doing a little bit of private teaching, but of course thats dependany on how soon you want to find a full time job.

    The learning centre most definatly is a good start

    I work as a Dispensary assistant. I love my job but its long hours in some cases, especially if I start locuming after uni.

    I am weaning off chocolate to lessen my sugar intake, and save some more money. I'm not stoppping eating it altogether though and replacing it with more fruit and veg.
