Job title: Student Mentoring

Date of employment: September 2015 – September 2016
Summary of role:

I was also Head Boy of my Sixth Form college, during this time I participated in a peer mentoring scheme helping younger students of all backgrounds and abilities during and after school with their homework and improving their behaviour. I feel this was influential to both their lives and my own. As their behaviour greatly improved and I developed a great sense of care for younger children.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

First and foremost I enjoy teaching children. Throughout high school I enjoyed teaching younger students a variety of subjects including Maths, Mandarin Chinese and Dance. I was also part of a peer mentoring scheme which allowed me to work with students from a variety of backgrounds and of different learning abilities. In university I studied Mandarin and after spending a year abroad studying in Beijing I had the chance to travel to Korea to visit my friends and I really enjoyed learning about the culture. When I returned to the UK I took up Korean language as part of my degree and my interest with the country continued to grow from there. During my time abroad I did some informal English language tuition which I really enjoyed and considered pursuing further after my studies. I would also like to challenge myself teaching in a new environment with new technologies.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a well-qualified, knowledgeable language teaching and learning expert with ample experience of teaching not only English but also Chinese across a broad spectrum of environments internationally. I taught English informally to a number of students during my year abroad in China.
During high school I volunteered teaching Chinese at a local primary school to 5 to 9 year olds, at the same time I participated in a peer mentoring scheme helping younger students of all backgrounds and abilities during and after school with their homework and behaviour. I am able to confidently adapt my skillset to support myself in any environment I am placed. Where I feel I have any areas I can improve I will try my best to work on those areas until I feel confident there is visible progress.

Additional information:

I genuinely enjoy teaching and would like to explore this passion further in the future. I feel like teaching any age of students would be an exciting opportunity and look forward to it.
