Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I am applying for teaching English online. I have taught overseas but am currently based in the UK.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I discovered teaching last year and have found it is a career that I love, and have a natural talent for. I have great patience and ability to break down the toughest language and grammar points into something simple and digestible for students. In addition my experience in the business world would be of huge benefit to anyone hoping to study at university in the UK/America or improve their career with superior business English skills. I have great references from the schools where I have taught which can be provided on request. While based in Scotland, due to family circumstances, I am keen to continue my teaching career and develop experience of online coaching.
