A break from the Turkey Holiday posts. I went to a job interview today. Well, it was actually a trial lesson as it was at a tuition centre that I had previously applied for. Remember the one where I had said were taking a while to reply and being terribly ambiguous?
I had sent them an email but had not received a reply so I decided to simply text the owner which yes, sounds quite unconventional but my pestering paid off. I first received a reply to contact them again in early September but once it hit the 5th, I sent another text thinking it was suitably early in September. After not receiving a reply, I sent another slightly longer one wondering if the owner kept my messages so saw them as a chain or received each one anew. I have nothing to lose I told myself so I hit send and was amazed to received a phone call immediately!
So today I went for a trial lesson which I was told would determine whether I am suitable for the position. Naturally, I was extremely nervous and so suited and booted I arrived wondering how it will feel to be judged so intently as I tutor a group of kids.
The reality could not have been more different. It was a far more relaxed environment than I was imagining. I was told to simply take the English class which made me wonder if the centre supervisor had misunderstood and thought that I was a new teacher instead of being there for a trial! There was no scary inspector leaning over my shoulder with a clipboard or tense moments of silence. I laughed to myself about how nervous I had been feeling.
Hopefully, I shall be blessed with a university timetable which allows me to work there but for that, I have to wait till next week. Great, more waiting!
Until Next Time
