Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I would like to teach overseas for a few reasons. I greatly enjoyed my year living and studying in Paris. This inspired me to seek to experience life in different locations and cultures, instead of simply visiting as a tourist. Teaching English overseas, especially somewhere as interesting and vibrant as South Korea, would be an amazing opportunity to pursue this even further.

I am also motivated to gain teaching experience. I am considering pursuing a career in teaching, and teaching English overseas would be a great opportunity gain skills and expertise whilst also experiencing different cultures and ways of life. Furthermore, it would allow me to have a really positive impact on the lives of those looking to learning English. Knowledge of another language, particularly one that is a lingua franca of many sectors, is liberating and can greatly improve a student’s life opportunities.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

First of all, I work well in new and initially unfamiliar environments. During my exchange in Paris I quickly and comfortably immersed myself in both the new academic system and the cultural environment. I am at my best when present with engaging challenges in interesting and vibrant settings. I am independent and driven, and while I am aware that I might face challenges such as culture shock, I also know that I can overcome these to thrive and achieve excellent results.

Secondly, I greatly enjoyed my experience of teaching during my CELTA course, and am excited to develop even further as an educator. I created detailed and extensive lesson plans for each class, carefully producing lessons that would engage with the students interests and that were appropriate for their levels. I also developed an excellent rapport with the students, succeeding in creating a positive, inviting, and informative learning environment. I paid particular attention to how I delivered feedback to the students, doing so in a way that encouraged improvement whilst building up their confidence in using English productively.

I am also a very hard working candidate. Throughout my degree I developed my skills in working independently and balancing workloads in order to meet numerous deadlines and achieve first class results. I have always maintained an excellent work-life balance and I am confident that I can handle the pressures of teaching and integrating into a new society and environment whilst also enjoying life abroad. I apply myself fully to any new endeavour.

I would also bring energy and enthusiasm to any teaching role. I am outgoing and do my best to motivate others. Through volunteering at my local Cub Scout group for 4 years I have also developed skills and experience working with children and creating a fun, engaging, and welcoming atmosphere in which learning is encouraged.
