Some of you may or may not know that I am currently in the UK and soon the Uk will be leaving the European Union (EU). This process is called Brexit. I am going, to be honest with you all; I voted to Remain in the EU – however; the rest of my Country disagreed. I knew that in the future, Visas would be needed for me to travel (and work) within the EU. I know that it will not happen straight away but it WILL happen!
I know that I already have to have Visas for Asia and the Americas – I am not bothered about that – but to go and work in Spain; for example, I will need to apply for a Visa!
Are you worried about what is going to happen?
This is the reason why I have not been teaching or posting about teaching for a while as I know that Visas cost money. I have been looking at getting another Online Teaching job, but I need faster internet – which I currently do not have! Any ideas on what I can do to increase the speed of my internet?
As you all remember in my last post; What do you all think of Cyprus? Also, in other news!; I told you all about Twitch and the wonderful channel Awkwards Travel – they have inspired me to look around at other Travel Blogs. I wanted to share my findings with you all…

A Backpacker’s Tale
What a few weeks it has been! I have been away for a few weeks with my Mom in Cyprus. It was amazing! I was job hunting while I was there; however, the level of English within the local community is amazingly high. However; I did find that it was much better within the Hotel and Tourist areas. There is a British School in the town we were staying but there were no vacancies for me! Oh well! I will keep searching…
I have also signed up to the thinkSPAIN website; which sends me email about jobs, accommodation etc from all over Spain. My friend; Chris, who is currently in Spain and has been for almost fours years now, told me that this was a good mailing list to join. I have seen a lot of rental properties – exciting right!?
I have some news about the Russian client I had; I used the word ‘had’. She has not re-booked me since the February Half Term. It is shame really; as I was enjoying my work with her. Not to worry; I will keep plodding along!
I have been feeding my Wanderlust recently – I have found a website called Twitch; where there are people who Stream games; their lives or even their crafting! I have become a member of the “Awkward Family” – I have been watching Awkwards Travel; a beautiful couple (Tallulah, 27, from Canada and her Gaspard, 36, from France) who travel all over the world and stream their adventures.
It is lovely to see where they are travelling and their share the “non-tourist” sights of the country they are in. It is amazing! It is good that they are helping me with my Wanderlust! Big love to G&T! I have been thinking about doing some IRL (In Real Life) streaming – just I’m all nervous. However; I do stream about my Creativeness – I cross stitch! Not that exciting…
You may remember that I have been trying to change my internet provider; it has finally been completed! Yippie! I was so happy that I was finally having faster internet – I have been trying to get myself organised to get my classes back at TutorABC…however; it has all changed!
I have done a speed test; as requested by iTutorGroup – however; even though my internet provider is now better and faster – it is still not good enough for iTutorGroup. A shame really! But what I am going to do…
…apply to more companies; that’s right!
I had already applied to VIPKID; I am currently “not ready” for teaching with them – I think it is due to not being available for the interview.
I have applied to DaDaTalk; I am waiting to find out if I can continue with the application – I like this company as my speed of internet is suitable for this company
I have registered myself on Preply; I am just waiting to be accepted to teach.
I am in the process of applying to Verbling and Two Sigmas – fingers crossed I will be successful!
As my 35th year started on 9th March; I have been thinking that I need to do this! Move abroad and teach English! I bought a book The Solo Travel Handbook from Lonely Planet. I cannot wait to read this book!
Yes, that is correct! I am still searching. I did have another interview with a recruiter from HiOffer. I am worried that they are checking their database of Teachers; as she was surprised that I am already in their system. I have this horrid feeling that I am missing out somehow.
I have also registered my interest with The Online Teacher and I am very excited to see what happens. I just need to add all my certificates, work experience and employment history.
As you all remember from my previous post that I had started working for a company called TutorABC. Well, I am currently “on hold” as my internet connection is suddenly not quick enough for the company. It is the same speed when I joined the company at the end of May. I was happy with the company until then. I have been trying to find another internet provider as I need faster internet speed.
In the UK, there are many different providers. I am currently using EE; which is the “home” account – I am not the only one who uses it. I have been thinking about going back to my original provider of 3. Will they work better? Fingers crossed?!
As some of you may have seen, I was supposed to have an interview with a lady called Mercy – sadly this interview never happened. Technical issues at my end stopped the interview process; we tried to re-arrange, but nothing has come to course. However; I believe that this happened for a reason; as I am now a member of the iTutor Group.
At time of writing, I have not had any classes booked in yet and I am waiting for my training to begin. I am very excited about this, as I will be able to give the schedulers my times and days and they will book the classes for me! How exciting, right?
I want to use the funds from this venture to pay for more courses from I-to-I; there are currently two on my list that I wish to complete.
I will keep you all posted on this…
