Why do you want to teach overseas?:

When I left school, I was absolutely certain that I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I was going to university to study psychology, and then I was going to become a clinical psychologist. But during my degree I realised that, while the subject matter was fascinating, what I really wanted to do most was to help people. Not necessarily as a clinical psychologist, just somewhere I could make a difference – no matter how small.
After working in office-based jobs for a few years, I had the opportunity to travel, and while I enjoyed the chance to see temples, famous landmarks and ruins, what stayed with me the most was the people I met along the way. In Cambodia I met an incredible woman who had taught herself English so that she could find a higher-paying job, and could afford to give her children the best possible education. Forced to give up her education as a child in order to work to support her family, she had found a way to create opportunities for her children that she herself had never had. I met university students in Vietnam who were eager for a chance to practice the English they had learned at school, to improve their pronunciation and grammar so that they would be accepted for the best jobs once they finished their studies. For them, learning English had opened up a wealth of possibilities that their parents and grandparents could never even have dreamed of. And here, at last, I could see a place where I could make a difference – however small.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Growing up overseas, and attending an international school, has made me highly adaptable, open -minded, and able to easily build relationships with people from a variety of different cultures and background. As a teacher, I am kind and patient, and genuinely care about my students and making sure that they have the best possible learning experience. I want my students to be happy, and motivated, and to enjoy learning English.
