I've just booked in a client for private tutoring at £20 an hour and near my new work! On one hand this is brilliant. I need the money for my renovation project. On the other hand, I don't have enough hours in the day as it is. Here are all my current commitments:
Working as a teacher - 37.5 hours a week (plus marking and planning)
Travel - 1.5 hours a day currently. Soon to be 30-40 minutes a day (hooray).
Psychology MSc - currently doing about 3 hours a week but need to do more to get a better mark.
Renovation project - currently doing 10 hours a week stripping wallpaper, removing bricks, cleaning, installing skirting boards.
Blogging - currently about 2 hours a week but I would like to spend longer
Family - 24 hours every two weeks
Boyfriend's family - about 5 hours a week
Add on tutoring, around 2 hours a week and it's gonna to be pretty packed. I really need to start to organise my time and find a way to achieve everything as well as getting some time to relax as well.
I'm hoping that tutoring is as easy as I think it is. I can set some work, mark it when I arrive while the students is doing a another piece, and tailor the pieces to the individual's needs. I can also bring some work resources home also. I may have to read a book or two though if they're studying literature (or at least look it up on Sparknotes).
How do you manage all your commitments?
