Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I have previously coached football in the USA, working in several different cities and living with different host families along the way. I enjoyed the experience immensely. I realise that many people in non-English speaking countries place a high value on being able to learn English and I would like to help these people to achieve their ambition. I have a keen passion for travelling and I enjoy learning about other cultures. I have Japanese relatives but have never been and I have always been fascinated by Asia.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I have several years’ experience of teaching and coaching mainly in health and exercise related areas. I have previously coached football overseas in the USA. I have worked with and taught people of all ages and from different cultural and social backgrounds. I enjoy working with people and helping them to attain their desired goals. I have experience working with individuals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. I am used to juggling relatively large client bases from my time teaching young children to swim (average class size 25) and from my time at Zip World Fforest (average group size 20). I believe that my academic and working experiences would be of tremendous use to me as a teacher. I believe that this role would allow me to develop skills for a career in which I have a genuine interest and enthusiasm.
