Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I love the foreign lifestyle and I want to help more people improve their English.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I have 4 years teaching experience overseas and I've taught all kinds of students from gifted, well-behavied to learning difficulities and challenging behaviour. I've taught children, teenagers and adults. I'm very adaptable, open-minded and determined to be a good teacher and to keep getting better because teaching is my ultimate passion. I like a challenge, working as a team and I have good people skills. I believe I can give something back to society if I get the chance to teach abroad again.
