Last few days had been filled with good news and not so good news.
Good news 1
I have received a notification from the administrator of domainofexperts.com . They asked for my permission to list me in their website.
Wow. I have been to their website before and it feature high profile tutors, most owning famous learning centres and also some well-knowned education publishers.
For a moment, I felt proud of myself. Then I slowly realise it is not by my efforts at all. This is truly by the grace of God. Effortless and restful. If it is by my efforts then I have to maintain it. But God has made writing this blog and all the materials quite effortless for me. As in, I enjoy doing it and doesnt really take up much of my time.
My husband told me that I am favoured. Yes, indeed. Even I am not one of those A* tutors who own learning centres or publish books (yet) or I do not have a PDGE, God can still put me at positions where these people are at.
I thank God for this unmerited favour and will continue to do what God has already given me the grace to do.
* Please dont misunderstand that the work of tutors is easy. There are many times I mark worksheets or prepare teaching materials till 1am.* But by the grace of God, I enjoy this work and more often, feel more energetic after lesson than otherwise. 🙂

Not so good news 1
2 Sec 3 girls students did not do as well.
They got C5 and B4 while I believe they can obtain at least a B3 or A2. 🙁
1 Sec 1 girl also didnt do as well. She got 17/30.
I realise these 3 girls have something in common. They made several careless mistakes.
I was quite disappointed for a while untill my husband point out to me that I can only do my best. I cant take the results too personally. 🙁
Yup, I decide to let it go and I pray that I have the wisdom to teach and mentor them to do less careless mistakes moving forward.
Not so good news 2
Last week, I really felt overwhelmed with tuition and work that I felt so tired.
This year, I had much more classes and I had been sleeping late. I also felt that there isn’t enough couple time for me and hubby.
I pray for more time to rest and wisdom to labour into rest. 🙂
Looking forward to more good news from the rest of my students! and myself! 🙂
God is good , all the time! Even when we have not so good news, God is still good!
