Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I have always had a fascination with different cultures, and I have always wanted to travel the world. Recently I have developed a desire to teach, as my experience as a summer camp tutor has shown me how rewarding this type of work can be. Thus, I would like to combine my two greatest desires and teach English to speakers of other languages, whilst at the same time broadening my horizons and finding out about new and exciting places and cultures.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I am an energetic, ambitious, and friendly individual who has some experience in teaching English to foreign children. I find this kind of work to be amazingly satisfactory, and I always give 110% when I am invested in doing something I love. Thus, I can guarantee to apply my full, enthusiastic personality to any TEFL job, as it is a great passion of mine. I believe that I can adapt to any job as I am a highly motivated person, and I believe this combines well with my fun, friendly personality to make me an ideal candidate to teach English overseas.
