STORIES — Nap times at worst times
Joseph, Maths, UK: During lockdown, I was tutoring a group on Teams and one student fell asleep. How do I know? With her camera and mic off, I asked her to answer a question. No response. I sent her a direct message. No response. I carried on the lesson and told all the other students to leave the call at the end of it. She didn’t come off the call. I kept that call open, thankfully it was last session of the day, until she woke up from her ‘nap’, apologised to me and then came off the call. I sent her parents an invoice for the additional two hours I kept the call going. She was good for every session after that.
