Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Why I want to teach:

I discovered that I had a passion for teaching when I undertook a volunteering role at a local primary school during my a-level studies. In this role I worked on literacy and numeracy with children who were having difficulties in the normal classroom environment. I found that through adopting an encouraging and enthusiastic demeanour and through clear simple explanations I was able to these children a sense of accomplishment and ability that they were not experiencing in the normal classroom. This experience was extremely rewarding and enjoyable for me and I have strongly considered a career in education from then on.

Since school, I have taken on a similar role with secondary school children, preparing them for exams and this has been equally rewarding. Also I have completed a qualification in teaching chess in schools and I have successfully taught chess to children and adults through my local chess union and university chess club. I myself am passionate about learning and I am constantly learning new skills and love nothing more than passing on this knowledge and skill to anyone.

Why overseas:

I find travel to be an extremely rewarding experience and I believe that it is important to broaden one’s perspective and I have always thought that authentic and immersive cultural experiences were the most rewarding – what better way to immerse yourself in another culture and broaden your horizon than living and working abroad?

As mentioned, I have a passion for teaching and working with children and I believe that this opportunity will allow me to gain important experience in this field while getting to experience a different culture, meet new people and experience a different way of living.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I believe that I am a suitable candidate for teaching overseas, firstly because I believe that I will be a good teacher – this is based on my voluntary experience in education and my experiences teaching chess to children and adults. And secondly, that I am well suited to working in another county. I understand that living and working in Korea will not always be easy. I am sure that there I will have difficulty adjusting to the culture however I would describe myself as extremely open-minded, resilient and respectful and I am sure that I will be able to overcome any difficulties and I will have a fulfilling and rewarding experience. I look forward to living and working in Korea and I will greatly appreciate any help toward this goal, thank you.
