ABOUT: the Founder
As a parent, you naturally care about your child's education.
You want to help them reach their full potential by doing whatever you can to better their grades and allow them to shine.
Or you want to finally get round to that leisure course you’ve thought about for years- just for fun.
Or when it comes to work, you know you’d do better if you took a course to widen your skills.
You’re in exactly the RIGHT place !
I’m Deany Judd and I LOVE Teaching!
As a classroom teacher with over 8 years experience I was exhausted from all that goes on as a teacher- lesson planning, parenting guidance, admin and oh yes, TEACHING.
Student class sizes and unruly student behaviours made it hard to teach effectively …it started to feel joyless.
I was drained from my day but still had more work to do – parent emails, papers to grade…(taking me away from my family).
Government legislation dictated how you do my job and admin shoving the newest curriculum made me crazy.
I always loved teaching teaching, but teaching in schools?
Not so much. NOT any more.
Nevertheless, I stayed in the system, because I loved my students.
I plodded along for eight years, but when my children came along, I knew it was time for a change.
I needed to be able to work from home, on my own schedule, with an hourly wage that would let me support my growing family.
So I switched careers, and became a freelance writer for a number of national newspapers.
The pay was great. The flexibility was even better.
But with every year that passed, I found myself missing my students more and more. I was ready to return to the classroom… but on MY terms.
Once I started researching my options, I soon discovered that modern technology was the answer.
With the power of the internet I could teach anyone, anywhere in the world, from the comfort of my home or using the Wifi at the hotel on a family holiday.
I’ve spent the last 8 years building my own online tutoring practice with students in New York, Germany, France, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, and all over the UK.
It wasn’t long after I started my online tutoring practice that the demand for tutoring quickly surpassed what I could offer alone.
But I soon learned that with technology and a digital classroom, I could tutor more than one person at a time.
I soon enlisted the minds of other ambitious tutors, and the Star Student Online School was formed.
Together, we were harnessing the power of technology to facilitate learning all around the world while enjoying the financial rewards and the flexibility we had always wanted.
These days, I get emails from countless tutors and teachers, saying they want to tutor/teach online, but they’re just not sure how or where to start.
I created a course to help tutors and teachers around the world get their online practices up and running.
And now I’m sharing that expertise here on Star Student.
With tutors teaching all over the world here is your opportunity to work with the best.
