I have wanted to be teacher for many years but could never afford University. I have a passion for teaching people of all ages and helping to better our world through education.
Seeing the smile on someone's face when they complete a year and hold their certificates with the pride and joy on their face is something that will always bring me joy and happiness.
I've had opportunities this year to start working without a degree and receive formal training however Covid-19 happened and the private schools closed. And receiving training at a public school requires a degree.
Now my goal is to complete a TEFL certificate and teach online since most companies require you to possess one. I've decided that teaching online and building my rapport as a teacher online would be the best course of action considering current circumstances.
I've already purchased a Laptop, webcam, headset and teaching materials, all I need now is the certificate and I'm done. The free version of the TEFL certificate online is not accepted at most if not all companies (even though it's claimed to be valid) so I need to purchase the course and complete the certificate.
The TEFL certificate costs R3100 which is around $200. It's all I need to complete my preparation for online teaching.
