Thoughts From The Corner

As private tutors in England, with many years of classroom experience, we tentatively think of this ‘all-things-education’ blog as thoughts we would like to share with you. We view our posts as:

The Truth – The Half Truth – Nothing Like the Truth

OR put another way:

  1. scholarly musings and ramblings
  2. the afore-mentioned plus a hint of artistic licence
  3. total artistic licence with maybe a smidge of educational truth

  1. Like I said before, I think your blog is great. I just nominated you for the liebster award you can check the post http://dorcamis.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/this-is-probably-a-dream-but-for-now-i-am-going-to-fully-enjoy-it/ for more details. I am also still getting the hang of it

  2. Thank you for becoming a subscriber. Now I’ll stroll further into your site.

  3. I have nominated you for the One Lovely blog award.

    I hope you take my nomination in the spirit it is give, though don’t feel obliged to accept. More details are here: http://petedenton.wordpress.com/2013/02/24/blogging-awards-ive-been-bad/

    • Thank you. I am ‘reet chuffed’. I can’t ever remember myself and ‘lovely’ being put in the same sentence. . .
      I post weekly so I will do the business with this one the week after this. All the best. . .

  4. Thank you so much for finding me on SkyDiaries! And yes, it DOES make me feel a bit more wanted! 😉 -Lynn

  5. Drat! I just nominated you for the Liebster Award, but I see above that someone else got here first! So…congrats lol! I love what you’ve done here, keep up the good work!

    • What a fantastic comment – thank you.

      Sorry you have been gazumped. I did the Liebster award two posts ago. It took for ever with all the ‘elevenses’ but I did enjoy it. Would you mind if I add you name to the logo on my site and omit the ‘elevenses’ – I don’t think I have that much to say about myself! Although I do have the ‘Lovely’ award to post next week . All these awards – I know how Daniel Day-Lewis must feel. . . .

      I must add that I do enjoy your posts.

      • By all means, feel free to add my name! I’m only now becoming familiar with the awards. It’s a very nice sentiment. I’m glad you enjoy my posts; the feeling is mutual.

  6. Thank you so much for following my blog! Will be checking out more of your posts soon!

  7. I have nominated you for the Best Moment Award. No strings attached..just know I enjoy your site and it has provided me with great moments!

    I’ve said a few words about you in my post, which you can find here.

    Thanks for those “Best Moments!”

    Now you know what I was doing sneaking around. 🙂

    • Hey hey Cranky you old dog you. To say I’m chuffed (great word, you should check it out) is an understatement. You with your multitudes of adoring groupies chose this boring, mortar board wearing, stuck-in-the-mud, grammar loving, education-ranting pedant for an award. Thank you.

      I will attempt to do justice to your choice. I usually post Wednesday’s and tomorrow I have one lined up about schedules (okay, you can yawn a little if you want) and next week my blog will be one year old so I will be indulging in a retrospective of life on the Good Ship WordPress. I will pass your award on the week after that – it will be a pleasure. It’s great that others recognise your efforts.

      I’ve checked out Erica’s blog and clicked to follow. How does she do those things?

      • Isn’t she amazing? Hey, my friend, I love your posts and I’m so glad you’ll pass this one on. Take your time..no real constraints on when you need to post about it!

        Just enjoy and know you’ve got another fan!

      • Yeah she’s some gal. She should run for President some day 🙂

  8. Thanks so much for following the Jenn stories. I am honoured.

  9. I truly enjoy your blog and have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. You can read about it here: http://mewhoami.wordpress.com/2013/09/20/liebster-blog-award/

    • Thank you so much.

      You are correct, it is a good feeling to be appreciated by your peers. I will ponder upon this and let you know when my post is unleashed to the unsuspecting public.

  10. Hello,

    I just nominated you for a Liebster Award (http://bradfonseca.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/the-liebster-award/). Thanks for writing a most entertaining blog.

    Thank you for following and am following back:) Looking forward to more posts.

  13. Thank you for stopping by my blog ‘teleportingweena’ and enjoying my latest post! I’m happy to have found yours and will be following to read more of yours!

  14. Thanks for the information. Our kids used to go to Kumon Math & Reading learning centers. I must say that it is the worst tutoring program in the world and there have been numerous reported cases of child molestations all around the world. I would warn all parents to stay away from Kumon.

    • Thank you for the comment.

      I have heard of Kumon but I do not know anything about them.

      Glad you found our site useful/interesting.
