I create educational resources like this after hours and on weekends, in addition to my day job, and I pay for all the software and AI tools that go into the making of the resources out of my own pocket.

I'm passionate about education and entrepreneurship and believe that everyone should have access to the resources they need to succeed.

That's why I make my lesson plans and teaching notes available to you on a 'pay-what-you-want' basis.

If you're able to support me and help offset some of the costs I pay to create these resources, I would be incredibly grateful.

Thank you for considering supporting me, and I hope you find my resources helpful!
