Been a little quiet about teaching the past few weeks. So I’d thought I pop on to say hi! I have still been teaching, but no where near my normal amount! Why? Well for many reasons actually. One, I was burnt out, between waking up at the crack of dawn, and teaching many students who didn’t want to be there I needed a break before I snapped. Secondly, I’ve been growing increasingly frustrated with VIPKid treating us like employees and not like independent contractor. Third, I’m tired of the curriculum that goes against EFL guidelines, and then being “highly encouraged” to take more TEFL certifications that just prove their curriculum is just not supporting learners (no I will not use AR stickers not now, not ever). Hoping some changes may be on the way though...? We’ll see I guess! Anyways, I’m remaining thankful for VIPKid, my regular students who I’ve continued to teach and being able to make money while staying safe at home.
