Job title: English teacher

Summary of role:

– Specialising in Elementary level classes (and receiving positive feedback from senior teachers for my strong ability to teach this level)
– Teaching classes of up to 14 students

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I have a natural interest in meeting people of different cultures and love learning about how different people live. I love teaching English, and really enjoy being able to help people learn a new skill.

I seek to form strong relationships when I go overseas so I usually like living in one area (i.e. as opposed to travelling from place to place). I’m becoming increasingly more interested in learning new languages, having spent over a year living in Colombia learning Spanish, and I’m keen to be able to converse with local people.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I speak clearly (I have a neutral UK accent), I’m passionate about helping people to learn, and I teach enthusiastically (e.g. being expressive with gestures and sounds) which I think makes me an especially good candidate for working with children. I also think I have a natural disposition for understanding local culture and customs, so that I make sure I act correctly wherever I am.
