We live moments away from where they are building HS2. A direct trainline from Birmingham to London. It means that there are several road closures and a lot of road works around the area presently.
The other day a dad asked if he could give me a call. It was decided that I would call him as I drove (the much-extended route) home from my last lesson Friday. (Hands free).
When I met him a couple of years ago, his wife had got in touch about supporting their daughter. At the time the daughter was 6 and needed help with phonics. If she didn’t pass a test after the Eater holidays she would be help back as the rest of the class moved on.
The dad was clearly sceptical of my techniques. I went around to their home and spent over 2 hours explaining my logic, reasoning, and experience.
I don’t think he was convinced.
However, his daughter passed her test and enjoyed her lessons. Within a short space of time, she was flourishing at school.
A couple of weeks back, I had an influx of calls from parents. They all came as recommendations from the same person. Him.
He apparently is one of my biggest advocates.
The call on Friday was about starting to support his younger daughter, but also for him becoming a tutor for me.
He had been working at a tutoring centre prior to lockdown. As he spoke, he stated that he would want to do me proud. He wanted to make sure that he didn’t do anything that would ruin our reputation.
It meant a lot that he had gone from being so sceptical of how we do things to wanting to work with us and do us proud.
He is doing additional training for his full-time work at this time. When he finishes, we will start the Clara James training.
I’m looking forward to someone with so much passion for our brand joining us.
