    To add to the list, I get to choose the resources and the CPD that I want. Parental approval of resources (rather than management humming and hawing) is an added bonus. And my choice of CPD doesn't mean that I then have to 'repay' it with a staff INSET contribution or use in all plans and lessons going forwards! Although it does cost of course.

    You can do the teach how you would want to, without having to look over your shoulder all the time.

Oh the irony. It’s getting all the time back to create other sidelines and futureproof earning systems that appeals to me the most. Doubtless I will return at some point when I am debt fee and can afford to work for fleck all for stupid management drones,

    Well some goons have tried to set up the national tutor agency thing and it has bombed. The whole pint is that we’re propping up the state education system and are out of TPS, so until full automisation arrives, courtesy of Google TES-Ed, Amazon or whatever, make hay while the sun shines!

    Seeing students improve and knowing you had something to do with it.

    Deciding your own working hours.
    Getting paid immediately and in cash.
