Tutor description

When Lourdu Mary retired from the teaching profession five years ago, she was sure that she didn't want to just sit at home and twiddle her thumbs. Starting her own school seemed like a good idea with her vast experience, but the various administrative and organisational technicalities were staggering, not to mention the vast sum of money that setting up a school required. "But as I was very keen to start something, I started looking around for options that could help me. Buying the franchise of a pre-school chain was the best one," says the 65 year old. Bangalore-based Mary bought a franchise of My Apple School for Rs 3.5 lakh, with the company providing the curriculum and support as well as training to her staff.
