First yr in NYC corporate group. Trying to schedule private lessons either at 8-9:30 pm on a weekday or around lunchtime on Saturdays. Is Saturday an obvious choice? Is it okay to respond to emails after 1.5~2 hr on weekends (obviously not when we’re signing/closing)

This is not at all a silly question. It just makes me so sad that is has to be asked.

Yes that’s fine on Saturday. People have other obligations and people know that weekends are the time to take care of those.

Totally fine.

At my firm, that is fine. See what the expectations are for your firm but I’m a firm advocate of boundaries and would go ahead and stick to your lessons anyways on Sat

At my biglaw firm either of these would be okay. Barring an immediate crisis that requires working late, no one's going to be mad if you don't answer an 8pm email until 8am tomorrow. But know your partners before you assume that...

Saturdays before 1pm are a safe bet for me maybe 50/52 weekends a year.

How many teachers set their own curriculum, meaning that you come up with everything you teach and assess? Beyond that, how many teachers are expected to change up their content almost every year? As a high school English teacher, I develop everything myself or collaborate with my (frankly amazing) coworkers. We are asked constantly to find new, modern books to buy and to develop curriculum around them (because our subject is more skill based). Wondering if other districts/subjects do the same.

Ladies I have a tutor to learn a second language and my tutor is late to every lesson. Not by a few minutes but at least 20-30minutes.

I don't think this is a cultural difference. I simply don't understand. How do you address someone who is always late and does not feel the need to fix it?!
