An Ex-Teacher’s Guide to Breaking Away from the Classroom

As educators, we’ve all walked the familiar halls of schools, carrying with us a deep-seated passion for nurturing young minds. Yet, amidst the hustle and bustle of the education system, many of us find ourselves questioning whether we’re truly making the impact we yearn for. If you’re nodding along, feeling stuck in a system that no longer ignites that fire within you, you’re not alone.

In this blog, we’ll explore the journey of breaking away from traditional teaching roles and embracing a path less traveled: group tuition. Whether you’ve already made the leap or you’re contemplating a change, let’s delve into the possibilities that await beyond the confines of “traditional” education.


Finding a Different Path

The decision to step away from the classroom is never going to be easy. After dedicating years to teaching and trying to enact change from within, many educators reach a point where they realise that certain challenges are beyond their control. It’s not about abandoning ship; it’s about recognising that there’s a different path—one where we can make a lasting difference.

Remember the phrase, it takes a village to raise a child? Well, I believe it takes an army of empowered teachers and tutors to actually effect positive change in education. Instead of viewing education as a solo endeavour, imagine it as a collective effort—a united front of empowered teachers and tutors working towards a common goal. By stepping away from the conventional system, we open ourselves up to new opportunities for innovation.

Embracing Group Tuition

If you’re considering a shift towards group tuition, you’re already on the right track. Moving away from the feast and famine cycle of one-on-one sessions allows for a more streamlined approach to teaching and learning. But where do you begin?

Enter my programme the 2 Hour Tutor! An invaluable resource for educators looking to carve out their niche in the world of group tuition. From defining your target audience to designing the ideal programme structure, this programme equips you with the tools to create meaningful transformations for your students in a way that feels true to your core values and the passion that brought you into this industry in the first place.

Niche Expertise and Scalability

One of the key advantages of group tuition is the opportunity to specialise in a particular subject or niche, and then you become known as the expert for that one thing. So you become the specialist in that one subject. And we’re not just talking maths, we’re talking maths A-level for AQA, for example. That’s how niche we’re going to go. Becoming known as the go-to expert in your field sets you apart from the competition.

But it’s not just about expertise—it’s also about scalability. How many students can you effectively serve in a group setting? What’s the value proposition you’re offering, and how can you communicate it effectively to prospective students? These are the questions that the 2 Hour Tutor programme helps you answer.
