Why do you want to teach overseas?:

My mother has been an English teacher all her life and she has inspired me to teach English abroad. Before I attended university, I volunteered as a teaching assistant at the Hispanic Education for Life Skills Project in Pontiac, Michigan and since then I have been determined to become an English teacher. I also love experience life abroad and living in a society different from my own. I have always held a desire to teach, and I believed then, as I do now, that teaching abroad in Korea will provide not only a unique opportunity to experience Korean culture and language firsthand, but also a chance to guide students on their difficult yet rewarding experience of learning a new language and culture.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have worked with ESL students in a variety of ways since high school. I have experience living abroad and teaching English in a classroom as a volunteer. From my past experience, I have brought the necessary skills and abilities to succeed living and teaching abroad.
