They knew their mums became imbeciles in the eyes of the law when they married.
New email, lots of @WASPI_campaign documents to complete hoping for a success with Parliament and transitional finacial arrangements for Pensions £12k due to date.
New documents to complete (& theres lots) no chance of any interim pension.
42 years NI paid from working.
Also NHS low pay forms for health and dentistry, WTC, hb and ctax, discounts for utilities forms, reduce payments forms.
With the pension orriginally promised at age 60, these forms would not be needed but we arent giving up and this small business can be successful.
Accounts information for QAAConfidence & QAAWyrd Tuition, bank statement reconciling, invoicing
This owing pensions to folk born in the 1950s is no joke and potentialy anti sex discrimination by way of no communication about the changes, plus we had the '75 Discrimination Act and the pill… seems like mysogeny in a prestbytering format - the plan to just boost the mens pension 'pot'.
Android tap-tapping takes longer but is sometimes easier on the hands and back. A choice of Android or pc however makes a big improvement.
Thanks to the 3Network, online business becomes possible as long as bband speeds and availability holds up.
Working on the online and group tuition potential
six weeks sch break time for teachers to think theories..num 1 mistake calling 6wk break 'Holidays' it should be 'Working at home weeks' Industry generally have just 2 weeks for Summer Holidays (perception gaps!)

apps should be good for efl as i tend not to watch the telly most folk do, i can direct EFL students to sport and possibly local news which should be easier language wise. Definitely not for soaps.
The #WASPI_Campaign is really important, I should have received £11500 in pension payments to now.
Onwards etc, build the tuition business.
All setup and working, quite a stressful change but one thats been planned. Now exam season is completed theres time to reflect evolve and begin the EFL to keep English skills for students.
All take time and planning and resources plus admin to keep on track to ensure tuition is all year round.

Checking the VAT situation if more than one student at a time, or planning local groups
Then theres the content planning.
ongoing project catch-up reading, Phonics become Analytic but should Synthetic Phonics be repeated instead?

Post from 10-07-17 that went to Draft, internet bband probs… ...reviewing new potential online profile pages, checking carefully as id and quals are required
one i have used a few years ago (but the web address name is misleading for supplementing lea school students)
possible link up with the tutors association (fees and return info)
specific esl online tuition sites, the British Council is a good start point.
Its necessary to avoid the online agencies who ask for commission on every tuition hour unless they are local.

Useful insights below (altered slightly for privacy reasons)
I find the LEA 'moving supply and contract staff on' bureaucratic paperwork onslaught just after exam time is really stressful just as it all looks bleak for the summertime. The renewal paperwork, at a time when landlords are moving students on until next September or final uni students moved on all together or prevented from staying locally is not something established Tutors should be caught up in. Its inevitable however that we are.
The online agencies could help by having a 'how many years tutoring in this area' information.
Exam time is so stressful and when Specifications are changing its even more so.
The insightful quote:-
"I tutor full time. GCSE science. I've been doing it for years now. Coming in to the exam season I find I tutor about 30 to 35 hours a week. The last exams are today and I am absolutely shattered. Banking as much money as I can in my busy couple of months and take the summer off is not how it goes. My house is a mess, my freezer empty, my children wild. If I am to be super-professional and organised in September, I've a lot to do. I also sort out my lesson bank, make sure my past papers are in order, do my accounts, and briefly become a lady wot lunches until my own children break up from school

The KipMcGrath setup in Derby was impressive it was just an interview
Pleased i did not opt for actual lesson resource making as a sole trader now Specifications and Education focus has cchanged twice since 2008.
The tuition has improved with online booking but is still seasonal and isnt a week or month by month income over 12 months.
Maybe for next year i can organise worshops in the Easter and Exam breaks. This will need vat registration.
Otherwise just keeping up with textbook changes and buying and travel to tutees stretches a limited income but its not possible to work without either,

There are online courses where students just need an introduction to how to study but checking the Specification and dates can highlight if the online course is ok.
