However, what caught the attention of the online community was her emotions while teaching her sibling.
With tears streaming down her face, Iverleen expressed how hard it was for her to be teaching her sister while she still has to finish her modules.
According to the report done by ABS-CBN News, Iverleen has been feeling pressured due to the deadlines of her modules and her siblings’ modules.
“Honestly, for me being in this situation, it is very difficult especially because I can't quite understand the lessons without personally explaining it to me, and researching on the website can cause distraction sometimes.”
Iverleen went on to mention that everyone has “different learning capabilities” and some students require further elaboration on certain topics.
Previously, students nationwide have been urging the Department of Education (DepEd) to implement an academic break.
