Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas because I like to challenge myself. While teaching English has been a goal of mine for several years, I never put much thought into where I would like to go. Then I began making friends from South Korea and China during my stay at university and it made me realize that teaching in Asia is something that would interest me. I enjoy challenges and I believe that teaching overseas will pose a challenge for me that is rewarding and satisfying. Through my overseas friends, I have been introduced to several new cultures that I would like to experience first hand while also doing what I enjoy doing. This made teaching overseas the most obvious choice for myself.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I believe that there are several aspects of myself that make me a suitable candidate for teaching overseas. The first being that English is my passion. The English language has been a passion of mine since I was very young and it is something that I kept with me right up until now. I minored in Linguistics in University, took my TEFL course and just felt complete. This passion is something I aim to pass on to my students in hopes that it helps them form a stronger bond with the English language and encourages them to learn. Secondly, I began learning French as a second language when I was in elementary school. This experience has given me first-hand knowledge of how it is to learn a language at any age. With this knowledge, I can shape my classroom to best fit the needs of my students no matter what stage they are in their English learning journey. Along with that, I have a strong work ethic and have been working since I was fifteen. I am a very adaptable person. I have been living on my own since 2015 and I have been able to balance work, school, and my personal life without it affecting my performance or my health. I believe that I will be able to adapt quickly and efficiently in an overseas teaching job as I welcome challenges and changes in my life. I believe that those three aspects, my passion and my language learning experience, and my work ethic, make me a suitable candidate for teaching overseas.

Additional information:

While I have no formal experience teaching English in a classroom, I have two informal South Korean students whom I tutor to help develop their English conversation skills. Through this, I have been able to develop my patience, positivity, and desire for teaching.
