Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I would love the opportunity to be able to teach in South Korea to experience the culture, food, language and people. I would also use the opportunity to explore the beauty the country has to offer.
Teacher overseas pushes you out of your comfort zone and will enable you to grow and adapt. It also provides you the opportunity of working with people and cultures that you would otherwise not have the chance to meet.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have completed 5 years in a corporate environment. This provided me with the skills and experience of knowing what a 9-5 job entails. I am aware that it takes hard work and is not just a holiday. You are working with children and have their future in your hands.
I have also done thorough research on teaching in South Korea and spoken with friends who currently teach there. I am aware of what to expect. I think I would be able to adapt well and hopefully have a positive impact on the lives of my students.
