About Lesucation
Joined July 2018
My name is Leslie, a 76years young retired teacher living in Leeds, West Yorkshire
UK, with my wife Susan. I am a retired teacher, who started teaching again 5years ago, tutoring students in care for our Local Council on a one to one basis. Most carers prefer me to teach in the students school environment, so I teach in Primary, High Schools and often Colleges throughout West Yorkshire.
Last year I became an examiner for AQA GCSE English Language and marked 267 students exam papers, but was surprised to find how difficult they were to mark for the simple reason that many of the papers were unreadable! This meant that to be fare to the students, I could not just say that I could not mark what I could not read, as zero marks would be a result that students would abhor. Just because a student is not able to write legibly does not mean that student was unintelligent. So I spent many hours on those students trying to decipher the writing and it just shows that many of those student finished up with top grades!
It is fortunate that I have a Nissan Leaf, an electric car to drive to my tutoring venues as being paid to teach on an hourly basis with no travelling expenses,. I have no fuel costs to diminish my earnings. In fact, since obtaining my current Nissan Leaf last February, I have saved £2500 not having to buy petrol (gas).
I am finding the training with WA and communicating with all the WA family members from all over the world wonderful and I am looking forward to completing my website, blogging, finding a niche product to sell on line and continue to help other WA members to future success.

Hello Leslie,

I actually came across a comment of yours where you welcomed a spammer (mcdona) and mentioned that you are from West Yorkshire. I am in England too, so I looked at your profile. How interesting! I also do a few bits of tutoring and I try very hard to help the pupils develop legible handwriting.

Wishing you all the best and am following you.

Wow, thanks for following, Leslie! We follow you back.
Philip attended Leeds University many years ago and then he lived in Yorkshire for 10 years. He loved it. It is a beautiful place!
We are glad to see people from "our generation" here because the platform is for everybody and we can all learn. Since you are a teacher, you will do very well as a student now!
The training here is amazing and also the community support.
We wish you every success going forward and we are with you on the journey!

Hi CandP
Thank you, isn't it a small world!
When was the last time Philip visited Leeds?
It has changed enormously over the years, it is now classed as a main " digital" city with a large number of technological companies and Channel 4 has decided to move up north to Leeds, bringing large numbers of employees. It will also be using many local TV production companies.
Best Wishes,
Leslie

We are sure Leeds must have changed a lot since Philip was last there in the late '70s. We actually left the UK for good (apart from family visits) in 91.
Best wishes,
Colette and Philip

Yes, things have certainly changed for the better since the late 70's!

Hi Ron,
Thank you for your following and your time in reading my profile. Re-finding a niche.
1). I wondered whether my teaching experience of over 56 years, would lend it self to my niche, but apart from writing an educational blog, how would I be able to monetise it?

2). I have also decided to follow the bootcamp training to reach at least 300 referrals to hopefully attend 2020 WA Las Vegas Affiliate Conference with my wife, Susan!

Best Wishes for your continued future success.

Hi Leslie
The Bootcamp training will help you immensely, especially when it comes to various methods of monetising a chosen niche.
Education is a viable online commodity, WA training will give you an insight on how to perhaps market an educational package which you can turn into an ebook / e-training which can be sold online through Clickbank for example.
What I'm saying is people buy courses online!
The Boot camp training will cover aspects of this approach to making money online.

But start with the training, take your time and ask questions as you go-
Best of luck, Shout if you need assistance and someone will always know the answer
Cheers
Ron

Hi merlinregis
Thank you for your welcome to WA Premium.
As that 75 years young retired teacher, who started teaching again in recent years, but students in care, on a one to one basis, mainly in Maths and English, it is interesting that you are fluent in French.
I have often had to assist a student whose main language was not English. A case, as example of a student brought over in care from Africa, whose main language being French. I personally took French up to " O level" some 60 years ago! However, I had to accompany him in Maths lessons in the High School in England. As the teacher was explaining the work to be done, when the student did not understand an English word meaning spoken by that teacher, I had to give an equivalent French word!
In this technological world, I was able to help him perfectly with the help of "Google Translation"!!!!

Indeed technology IS becoming better, but sometimes google translate can make "machine errors" that can completely twist the signification of the translation around. We have to be very careful using translators.

Hi Grace
I am so pleased that you would consider being my Coach on my WA journey, thank you so much, but don't hesitate to perhaps use me, if I may help you in anyway!
As a matter of interest may I ask you several questions,some may be personal:
Where in the USA do you live?
How old are your children?
How do I publish my WA blog?
I have written my first WA blog ,but it has disappeared, where has it gone?
My wife,Susan and I have 2 sons, both married and living in London. Sheldon and his wife ,Gisellle have our 4 grandchildren aged 7 to 16. Sheldon is a TV producer for Disney with offices in London and New York.
Mark and his wife Stacey have no children yet, he is the manager of an exclusive shoe shop in London that has a turnover of approximately a million pounds a year.
I am a retired deputy headmaster of a middle school, 9 to 13 year olds, but as I have mentioned, in the last 4 years, back teaching students , one to one, in care of any age 6 to 18 all over West Yorkshire, here in the UK.
Best Wishes to you and your family,
By the way, what are your specialities online?

Leslie

Hi Leslie, nice to learn about you and your family. My girls are 7 & 9, they are 17 months apart so they are very close all their lives so far. I hope they continue that way forever. :)

I really don't have any online specialities except for what I do today... so WA is my specialty. LOL. :) I do mainly promote WA because I absolutely love it here and as a beginner not long ago, it was so nice to finally find a place where the training is so good and easy to follow.

You will have a great time here!

The WA blogs... they are a little funky... so go back to WA blog under the PEN tool above top right menu, it will look like you're starting a new blog but just above the title to the right, you'll see a "Drafts 1" and probably has a one in it for the post you had written.

The blogs save automatically with every word you type pretty much unless there was a cliche and it couldn't save for some reason.

Anyway, before you are allowed to post your WA blog, you need to input two tags near the bottom left corner of your post. A tag is a word or word phrase that describes your post, you will need two tags minimum.

Yes I'm excited to help you in your journey so don't be shy if you have any questions, I'm here to help you!

Hello Leslie!

I hope you're finding Wealthy Affiliate a fun place to be as well as all the learning you are doing!

I noticed you have not completely set up your account yet. There are two steps to setting up your account:
1. Upload a pic (can be any pic)
2. Write a short profile description (Click on the "Edit Bio" button under your username).

You may have done one of the two above, but having BOTH will compete your account setup.

Here's a short video about account set up and why it's important to do so: ----

A lot of new members are really hung up about making money right away and wondering if this training really works so I have compiled this list of success stories I've seen through the time I've been here for you to see how much and how long it takes for someone to make money: Please keep in mind that everybody's circumstance is different but the most important thing to remember is that if you want to see results (money), you need to put in the work. The more you work on your online business, the more you will see the money come in.

This is also why it's important to upgrade to a Premium account so you can gain the full benefits of the entire platform.

See the complete comparison of Your Free account to a Premium account here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/a_aid/d6149715

You'll see all that you'll get when you upgrade to a Premium account in the following areas:
* Education
* Websites
* Hosting
* Site Content
* Community
* Support
* Success

Without Premium, you'll have a harder time making money, will take much longer, and you won't have the same support.

Anyway, think about it and your first month is super cheap at $19 which is an unbelievable price with everything that you get.

If you have any questions about picking a niche, please let me know and I can offer advice to you.

I'm here for you if you need me. Remember to have fun while you learn what you love to do, making money online! ;)

Talk soon,
Grace
