The Tidy Up: December 2010

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years! For some of us, it would’ve meant the only big break before the 2011 HSC. For others, it meant finding out our ATAR and HSC marks, deciding what to do next year. And for us tutors and teachers, it meant a break from work…

Currently, I’m only tutoring ONE student, which feels a bit odd for me (being used to 11 last year). But I’m also enjoying the free time, because I’ll be starting full-time work at the end of January.

Do any of you (tutoring) do full-time work AND tutor? What are you experiences in terms of time management? Any advice?
