Sunshine after the rain… how apt. Crossing over to a familiar yet forgettable land for a cuppa, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgia welling up all of a sudden in my heart. As much as I would like to put the past behind, bits and pieces of my dream-turned-reality begin to come together like a little child piecing up his jigsaw puzzle. It is wonderful to experience the deja vu all over again albeit alone.
Musing over how I put together the cafe from naught, I let out a grin as I savoured my very first churros across the Causeway here in The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen. The pastas, pizzas, soups, salads, cakes and coffees that I churned out for my cafe in the Christmas month in 2013 were my greatest encouragement and achievement dabbling in the demanding F & B industry. As I now take a back seat from this industry, I am thankful that it worked out beyond anyone’s imagination. Yes, Ryan – somehow – can cook! 😁
“But, you don’t have a culinary background or training… you are not certified… you are only a teacher… you are too soft… you are not cut to be in business… you are rocking the boat… you…”
I did it… and again I say, I did even more!
The cafe has taken off and upon that movement, The Tutor is another truly remarkable success. It has successfully touched the lives of 100 students upon its one year inception. What is even more remarkable is the fact that it does not attempt to leverage on the social media or online marketing to echo its authenticity, reliability and quality teaching and learning experience. Instead, the intentional teaching has garnered trust and support from both parents and students alike. This is something unprecedented worthy of replicating!
The Tutor is getting ready for a mighty expansion. We need your support like never before. We endeavour to bring to you a new wave of learning experience that will greatly benefit our present and new learners. Please appear before us to share our vision to bring quality teaching and learning to the young by joining us as Teaching Professionals whether you may or not have the credentials.
