Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I have roughly two-years of teaching experience with adults and children aged 8-17 within social service settings. Within this time, I have come to thoroughly enjoy supporting others in their learning and being able to be creative in the materials I use to teach. However, due to my degree being in psychology and not education I am limited in the types of teaching experience I can access here in the UK. Subsequently, I have chosen to undertake EFL teaching in Korea as I believe it will allow me to further develop my existing teaching skills and knowledge. Moreover, the existing education culture in Korea appears to strive for studious, focused and motivated students. From the perspective of someone who wants to develop as a teacher, I believe being a part of such a culture will fuel my own motivation and excitement regards teaching and sharing my knowledge of the English language with students. Consequently, teaching EFL in Korea opens a door for the opportunity to learn a diverse range of skills and knowledge not readily accessible within the United Kingdom. Moreover, I can learn about a new culture through a fully immersed experience.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a resilient, empathetic and patient person who has a genuine passion for learning and sharing knowledge. I am a very organised person who takes pride in their work, be it a small or large task. I am sociable and enjoy meeting others and would be best described as someone who is very good at listening and giving practical and informed advice. I am also a realistic person which helps me to manage any stress or worries I may have in a practical way. I feel these qualities make me a suitable candidate for teaching overseas as they are qualities that are not only relevant for teaching but also living in a different culture far from my own.

Additional information:

Regards documentation I currently have in my possession an apostilled and notarised copy of my degree, an apostilled and notarised CRC (issued March 2020), passport with more than 24 months in date, update to resume and Korean sized passport style photo.

The age groups I would like to teach are kindy-high school.
