Work Experience

Position


Job title: Student Drama Teacher
Employer: Stage 84
Date of employment: January 2014 – June 2016
Summary of role:

Although I have had a few part time positions, this one is the most relevant.
I worked as a student teacher at a drama scool, where I not only assisted the qualified teaching staff that worked there, but also was responsible for teaching poetry, script work and other relevant acting skills to students aged 3-14, both one-to-one and in small groups.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Having both taught and worked with young students before, and lived in South Korea previously as an exchange student, I hope to teach overseas because it allows me to combine my love of working with children and inspiring them to learn, with my love of South Korea and the life I have built myself there.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a suitable candidate for teaching in South Korea as I have experience in teaching drama students ages 3-14. Having already experienced this and knowing that I interact well with children of these ages there would be no concerns that I would not enjoy or be comfortable in the role of a teacher.
Having lived in Korea before and having built a comfortable life there, which I am now ready to return to, means that there will be no settling-in period, and I can commit myself to the role immediately. This also means that I will not dislike the country and try to leave sooner than my contract stipulates. I am a hardworking, indipendent individual who works well with others and is extremely adaptable.

Additional information:

I am looking for a job which can provide a housing allowance, rather than one which provides housing. I understand that this may not be possible as there are many hagwons which own their apartment complexes in which the teachers live. If this is not possible I am open to job placements with housing provided, depending on location, salary and other benefits (e.g. how much health insurance is covered) etc.
