How to extrude? 3D cursor getting in my way???

Hello. I hope this is the right place to post this. I was following this video.

At 1:10, the guy extrudes the top of the cup so that there is a hole. However whenever I do it, the extrude goes in the direction of the 3D cursor? I hope you understand what I’m trying to say. Is there a way to turn it off for a little while or something? Please help, thanks.

Ensure you are extruding (E) and not scaling (S).
