Keep balls in the air

Man, what a week, what a week. I haven’t had much sleep. I’m not getting the help that I need. Luckily, a friend stepped in and he is prepared to look at my diary with me weekly. I really just want to watch movies with him, but unfortunately, there is no time left.

I am doing my best though. I am teaching two classes. I think I am really bonding with one of those classes. They are depending on me and I feel a sense of responsibility to help them. They are curious and mostly respectful. This makes it a nice class. The other class is a bigger class with new students in it. They get a break in the middle of my class which takes me out of the flow of teaching. Plus, I don’t have a lot of time left to bond with them, since they are interrupting my class a lot of the time. Let’s see if I can focus a little more on the bonding process with them.

Upcoming Sunday another student of English will come over to Zwolle. We’ll make homework together for the fourth time. He arranged a weekend ticket for the train which ensures a cheaper way of transportation for him and I kept all of my Sundays free for him. Apparently, we like the collaboration.

I still love to tutor my pupils. I have been doing that for three years now and I still meet new students and it keeps on being funny, interesting, and a place of learning for me. I wish that could just be my full-time job, but sadly, the job does not pay very well.

The lessons I get are useful. I like that. They are preparing me for a big exam and are guiding me to develop my vision of teaching. They are also helping me with tips to make an online product that I can use in my classroom. A lot of new people, books, homework, insights, and environments for me.

I hope you are having a good time where ever you are and until next time! X
