Twelve months ago, Lindsey Falconer from MagiKats Maths and English in Fleet, was starting her training course and getting ready to open her new Tuition Centre. She is celebrating in style – with a special Summer Holiday Programme and FREE taster sessions – read on for more information!
Lindsey had no idea how she was going to find juggling being mum of toddler Leo with launching a new business, but she was determined that she was going to work hard and be successful. So, almost one year after opening, how are things going?
“Monday mornings are my favourite time of the week,” said Lindsey. “After I have dropped Leo at nursery, I have the day ahead of me to work, nobody clinging round my ankles, and the week is full of promise. I also like Thursday afternoons after the workshop, picking Leo up from nursery and knowing we have the weekend as a family to look forward to.”
Lindsey has taken to her new tutoring business with enthusiasm and this is reflected in her success. After only a few months, Lindsey has almost 30 enrolments in her centre and plans to grow this to nearer 50 in the next few months – and then plans to eventually open a second or even third centre!
Lindsey has some great memories of her early days as a MagiKats Principal. “The first workshops, finding two really great mentors, and getting some positive feedback early on from parents made me feel that all the effort was paying off.”
As Lindsey has those two great mentors working with her, she feels she is now ready to really push things forward over the summer and into September. “I am really happy to be reaching my first summer with MagiKats, as they offer great Summer Holiday Programmes that keep kids ticking over during the long school holiday.”
She is so happy that she is offering local children the chance to ‘try before you buy’ with free taster sessions from the middle of July until the end of August. There are limited spaces available, though, so Lindsey says, “book now!”
