Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I enjoy traveling and visiting other countries. I also appreciate the hard work and serious attitude of the students in Asia. Also, the climate in the US is very hostile currently.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have taught overseas before. I have experience adapting to a new country. For example, while volunteering at a farm in Prague, Czech I learned simple phrases and numbers in Czech to help me when buying groceries. In China, I learned to speak Mandarin. While in Korea, I learned numbers and phrases to help me in daily life in Korea.
Also, I am friendly, flexible, and passionate, especially with teaching students life skills.
