One thing you don't need to worry about from conventional teachers is them suddenly trying to sell you the video camera or pen they are using.

Just makes me concerned generally about the quality of content and newer learners thinking that curating their own Youtube videos is going to be an "on the cheap" way to replace the methodical approach provided by traditional learning.


I would be careful with the assumption "sober, humble & conventional (101-ish) equals great quality" and "flashy, marketing-conscious & innovative etc equals poor quality". 


Nowadays everyone tries to get by and hustle. It is not as if being a teacher is a super lucrative job. I do not see a problem if she wants to build up a community, do side hustles and up-sell.... As mentioned before, I have not spend any money on her and never will. However, I still believes her teaching style is appealing to me.
