Be willing to let go of who you think you should be, in order to be who you are.Brene Brown (via thepositivelight)

I am half way through the CELTA course which is a training course to teach English to people who are learning English as a second language. I’m at the point where I really can’t be bothered with it anymore.
For one of my assignments I have to work with a learner: find out about them and what in particular they find difficult about learning English. I then have to come up with something that will help them with that problem(s). I have worked with two classes of students and of all the students I’ve asked to work with none seem interested in getting extra help (three said no and one hasn’t bothered to contact me). This is adding to my apathy. On top of all the other work I have to do I’m probably now going to have to bullshit my assignment.
Thankfully next week I get a different tutor to work with as I’ve had enough of the one I’ve worked with so far, so I guess there is a positive there.
Maybe it’s normal to feel like this at this stage?
