    From Head Teacher to Head Tutor: Key Lessons Learnt Along the Way and How We Ensure Mental Health (for Student & Tutor) Stays at the Forefront, with Founder of MyTutorElite, David Bell

    David Bell is an inspiration to us all. As a former teacher and headteacher for over 18 years, fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching and now founder of a new tutoring business, David has seen it all in education.

    MyTutorElite (part of the wider David Bell Educational group), a primary tuition and exam prep business, is the product of this experience and expertise. 

    In a conversation packed full of honest insight and experience, David takes us from his early days as a student who struggled in the arts and sports, to his unwavering focus on mental health in education, to his transition to entrepreneurial tutoring company owner (and all that comes with it).

    In between, he finds time to give 3 key pieces of advice for those who have left, or are thinking of leaving, the classroom - catch that from [19:23] onwards.

    Reimagining the Fabric of our Education System: How to Create Incredible Learners, with CEO of Streamline Learning, Ian Siegel

    Reimagining the Fabric of our Education System: How to Create Incredible Learners, with CEO of Streamline Learning, Ian Siegel

    Ok so you're involved in education. You might well be an educator yourself. Do you ever reflect that the system you work in could be reimagined for the better? Ian Siegel has made it his mission - here's how.

    As CEO of a highly successful tutoring company, Streamline Learning, Ian sees personal tuition first hand. With over 15,000 hours of tutoring under his belt, Ian has come to understand the stresses, strains and pressures that mainstream education has put on students.

    His newly released book, The Tutor Bible, Learning to Learn Again, sharpens our minds to the fundamental issue in the classroom system of today: the lack of focus on the student.

    A deeply thoughtful conversation steeped in empathy (for students) and passion (for a better future), there is a particular line that strikes a real chord: 'Like plants growing towards the sun, people grow towards affirmation'. 

    Have a great week 😊

    How to Transform Your Passion into Confident Self-Expression: Speaker Empowerment for Educators & Professionals, with Linda Ugelow

    How to Transform Your Passion into Confident Self-Expression: Speaker Empowerment for Educators & Professionals, with Linda Ugelow

    It's not often that you come across someone with the passion and spirit of Linda Ugelow. A lifelong dancer and performer, Linda removes the anxiety and fear of speaking with confidence.

    What you'll find here is an eloquent and self-effacing exploration of the intersection between public speaking and effective pedagogy.

    The applicability of Linda's teachings for public speakers to effective teaching is hugely significant and couldn't be more timely: believing in your learner, allowing them to be their unique self and creating that trustful environment that allows them to make mistakes.

    In so many parts of our lives, we’re asked to speak, to ‘perform’, in front of others, be it colleagues, clients or friends and, for educators, students and parents of students. Linda helps people remove those blocks and doubts that creep up and prevent us from delivering our voice and our vision clearly. 

    Listen in to see if Linda can help inspire you too ...

    On Saturday 2nd July 2022, we celebrate the return of World Tutors' Day. In this conversation, we managed to catch Sarahlynn (also QT Wellbeing Hub Leader and Founder of Bettering Youth) amongst the many events she's leading at the Love Tutoring Festival 3 this week, to chat about the challenges tutoring currently faces, how the role of tutoring has changed over the past few years and what we can (and should) be doing to support our own wellbeing.

    To celebrate this day, we've created a challenge that will help you to honour your wellbeing as well as support that of those around you (both physically and professionally) - head to worldtutorsday.org to see the details and take part yourself.
    Don't forget that you can still book your tickets to the Love Tutoring Festival 3 to hear Sarahlynn, and many other high-quality speakers, for FREE. To find out all about this incredible online festival of events taking place this week, head over to qualifiedtutor.org/love-tutoring-festival.

    Today at the Festival (Thursday 30th June) also happens to have a Wellbeing Focus on Mindfulness, which ties in very nicely with the conversation here - don't miss out on all the energy generated throughout the week leading up to this moment.
