I am 27 years old. Still jobless and hopeless. Lol that rhymes but my life is a mess.
I want to become a teacher in a reputed school but they asks for my experience and I don’t have a teaching experience in school. But I have been teaching and giving tuition since 2015. Now I am at the level where my parents want me to get married. But I want secure job and then marry. What should I do? I was thinking of getting a fake certificate too but that is not ethical at all. I am stuck and clueless 😭

If you have been teaching since 2015 then that would also account for experience na. Have you tried going for the online edtech platforms that has teachers on board? You could try your hand with that.

Alternatively you could sit for the teaching specialised diplomas/short courses to begin with. It will at least make your credentials stronger.

Shalini @heart_to_heart

Teaching in schools will be counted as experience. No tuition experience will help.

What about the experience certificates from those places where you worked before. They didn’t provide one?

Shalini @heart_to_heart

I didn’t ask that. Also the teaching bureau provide these experiences certificate or not. I am not really sure

They do. Try asking once i myself am a teacher, so suggesting it.

Shalini @heart_to_heart

Ok ma’am ☺️ I am surely going to ask!

I believe these tutions were home tutoring which is why it can’t account for experience.

In that case it would be beneficial for you to acquire some hands on knowledge by studying. I mean faking a degree is unethical and not worth the risk.

Shalini @heart_to_heart

Yes. I agree

I used to help students to chegg.com with computer science queries and all students were from outside India which helps with international experience.
give that website a shot.

Shalini @heart_to_heart

Sure. I have heard of this site before. Researched on this during covid times but offline classes are back in track so I lost interest in online teaching . Also I am not a techie. I can hardly run a laptop.
