Work Experience

Position


Job title: Senior Paralegal
Employer: Stephenson Harwood
Date of employment: Jan 2019 – Jan 2021
Summary of role:

As a senior paralegal, I was responsible for managing the junior paralegals through training sessions and on-boarding presentations. I also helped them to manage their workloads and made sure they were reaching their full potential as paralegals. This role made me excel at public speaking and guiding the progress of others.

Position


Job title: Private Tutor
Employer: Various
Date of employment: Jul 2016 – December 2018
Summary of role:

I carried out one-to-one tutor sessions with children, teaching English and Maths at a primary school level. I learnt how to manage naughty behaviour to ensure that lesson times were as productive as possible. I also learnt how to create fun and engaging lesson plans to keep young students engaged.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I spent the last year travelling South America and learning Spanish through cultural exchanges with local people. I was often told that I should teach English and I thoroughly enjoyed exchanging language skills with individuals from all walks of life. I have always wanted to live and work in Asia long-term. In 2014, I interned in Beijing for two months and had an incredible time, it has always been a dream of mine to return to Asia and experience a whole new culture, which is why I have chosen South Korea. The combination of my experiences interning in Asia and travelling in South America have made me passionate about wanting to teach English in Asia and be able to travel this culturally rich region in my spare time.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Having worked with children before and just having a general love for them, I think I would be well suited to teaching overseas. Through my work experience, I have learnt how to manage people using a variety of communication styles and I believe this would provide me with the skills to manage a classroom. I have also taught children before which has taught me how to find a balance between keeping lessons fun and engaging and being firm enough to maintain a leadership role in my lessons in order to be respected as a teacher. I have also managed classrooms with more difficult children and have managed to remain productive with teaching and getting the most out of lessons. I am keen to apply these skills to a teaching role in South Korea.
