World Tutors’ Day July 2nd and the World’s First 24-Hour International Tutor-thon
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Lucy Alexandra Spencer is embarking on a unique and ambitious adventure. Over 24 hours on Friday 2nd July, Lucy will be tutoring over 200 students in over 22 countries.

Lucy is the Founder of Education Boutique, market leaders in high-quality international tutoring. Just 5 and a half years after leaving the classroom, Lucy regularly tutors all over the world ... every week (and pre-Covid, Lucy actually travelled to these destinations!)

On Friday 2nd July, Lucy is embarking on a world first: she will be tutoring in 30-minute windows every hour for 24 hours, to raise money for the incredible charity, Creating Better Futures, who improve living conditions and opportunities for children in Zimbabwe through (access to) education.

🌍 You can donate money to this worthwhile cause at Lucy's JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/educationboutique.

And don't forget to:

What is your WHY as a tutor?
So, a Tutor-thon … what’s that?
How have you managed to find the students for a whole 24-hour period?
How does '30 minutes on, 30 minutes off' really work?
What would success look like for you from this event?
