In an all-time favourite TED Talk “Happiness and it’s Surprises” cognitive researcher Nancy Etcoff looks at happiness — the ways we try to achieve and increase it.
Tutoring has all the elements for leading a happy life and with the assistance of technology, there has never been a better time to build a tutoring business.
Being a tutor is leading a “Good Life” with the virtues that lead to happiness as described by Aristotle
- By always acquiring new intellectual virtues, the tutor is able to grow their skills, broaden horizons, expand their experiences and opportunities for greater abundance.
- The virtues of courage, temperance, and generosity are expressed in the everyday work of a tutor. Tutor’s are challenged to be patient, find new ways to teach each individual based on their unique learning abilities and be generous in sharing their knowledge.
Tutors who are able to do this while controlling their schedules, teaching environments and rate of pay are the happiest and living the good life.
