Tutor: The People You Surround Yourself With

According to the eminently quotable Jim Rohn, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” I can only hope that is true, as I engage with incredibly smart, dedicated, compassionate, and hilarious individuals all day every day. In fact, I’m writing this well in advance of the National Test Prep Association’s 2022 Winter Workshop; professional development in Las Vegas is a 24-hour commitment, right?

If you’re a tutor looking to exponentially increase the value of the network that, in some ways, defines you, look not at what your current peers say but what they do:

Are they truly ethical?
Are they truly effective?
Are they truly interactive and supportive?
Are they truly a pleasure to be around? 

Raise your game. I know who I surround myself with and how they make me a better educator, a better business owner, and–most importantly–a better person. How about you?
