The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun little exam that we love to give to savvy business owners. The examination is not a surprise after all since the interviewee already knew about the questions in advance. However, we can always pretend and have fun with the scenario of a young entrepreneur sitting in class nervously biting on their pencil. They are ready to take a pop quiz on a chapter that they were supposed to read the night before. Instead, they played Metroid all night on their SNES (Oops, this was me in high school). The real purpose of the pop quiz is that this is a fun way to introduce business tips from real-world experiences that you can not learn in a classroom. We want to thank our entrepreneur for being a good sport and volunteering their time to answer a few questions to help our community grow from their knowledge.
I want to introduce you to our guest today who will be taking our Pop Quiz Monday.

Tutor in Maths, English, and Music
Tell us about your company?
Personalised tutoring that creates empowered learners.
Creating happy, confident kids through creative learning.
What do you love most about your job?
My job is all about helping students to de-emotionalise learning. I have been where these kids are, and I love helping them get their ah-ha moments and realising they are not “dumb.”
What motivates you to get up every day and go to work?
My vision of helping others to find their inner greatness.
How do your co-workers inspire you?
Their input is always creative, supportive and encouraging.
How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
We have fun and laugh. Share funny stories and jokes.
What are some of the challenges of your job?
Dealing with kids who are anxious, angry and think they are “dumb.”
What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
Kids have amazing resources for growth and persistence. Recognise a child’s pain, make suggestions on how they can help themselves, help them to change their negative mindset, and they thrive.
What advice would you give to someone who is starting in your industry?
Know who your client is that you want to attract. Set terms and conditions.
Make sure you are working in an area you love.
