Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

A lifelong passion for travel has encouraged me to continuously seek opportunities to experience new cultures. Teaching English overseas is not just another opportunity to visit a new place and meet new people, it’s an opportunity to fully embrace and immerse oneself into that culture. The chance to live overseas is not an opportunity I want to miss.
The cultural exchange that takes place through teaching English abroad is an excellent way to make the most of living overseas, interacting with students and learning as much from them as they do from me adds a further cultural dimension.
The chance to make a real difference in the lives of students is another motivation for me. Education is a fundamental right within society, and I want to be a part that. Embedded within the community, teaching entails daily interaction with people from a culture vastly different from my own. By teaching overseas I hope to become a productive member of the culture and society I’m working in. This way I’ll get as much out of the experience as the students.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I’m a suitable candidate for teaching because I am an enthusiastic and passionate person. In my opinion a teacher must be passionate so that they motivate their students to engage in their lesson and to enjoy their education. In order to get the most from their time in school students must enjoy their time there, so it is therefore important that educators make school a rewarding and fun place to be. I am confident in my ability to do this. As I am sure my friends will attest, I am a fun person to be around and I therefore hope to create a thoroughly enjoyable learning environment.
In addition to this, my ability to articulate myself is another important trait I feel makes me a suitable candidate. As a teacher’s primary aim is to communicate with students it is vital that they are able to articulate the course material in a manner most effective. Regardless of the age and ability of students, I am confident that I will find the best possible way to interact with the students that best teaches them the material.
Furthermore, a teacher must be patient in order to attune their teaching methods to the variety of abilities present in the class. Whilst some students may come to terms with the topic quicker than others, it is important to have the patience required to ensure the slower students are not left behind.

Additional information:

My relevant work and extra-curricular activities further demonstrate my suitability to teach overseas. As a member of the Scouts network here in the UK, I organised many events for large numbers of children. This involved generating ideas for activities, delegating tasks amongst helpers, and supervising the events to make sure they ran smoothly.
A charity expedition to Peru in 2012 offered me a great opportunity to spend time working with children. Having raised the funds to go, we spent over a week building a school canteen for a local primary school in an impoverished neighbourhood. Whilst there we spent time with the children; playing games, teaching them bits of English, and learning Spanish from them. Overall it was a fantastic experience that I feel makes me an excellent candidate for teaching overseas.
