One of my students has a crush on me. I don't know how to handle this situation


Dear Aunty Lisa

I am kind of in a difficult situation with a student right now.

I am a 22-year-old female English Language teacher and my student is 18. He has made it apparent that he has a crush on me.

I don’t know how to handle this situation. I don’t want to hurt his feelings or make him feel embarrassed or ashamed but I want him to know that it is not okay because I am his teacher.

I don’t think he understands since we are so close in age. Any advice will be wonderful.
