Work Experience

Position


Job title: Teaching Assistant
Employer: Edustaff
Date of employment: November 2017- July 2018
Summary of role:

I was a teaching assistant in a year 2 class. I supported the class teacher and helped to teach the children. I ran P.E. lessons as well as numeracy, literacy and spelling groups.

Position


Job title: Squash Coach
Employer: Self-employed
Date of employment: October 2017 – present
Summary of role:

I work as a squash coach, teaching children from a young age all the way up to adults. This involves teaching them basic technique, hand-to-eye coordination, and ensuring that they have fun while exercising.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

After working as a teaching assistant for a year, I discovered that teaching is the profession I want to follow. I also love a challenge, and relish the chance to experience new cultures, learn a new language, and see how teaching styles may differ in different places. Teaching abroad allows me to do all of these things. Before embarking on a full career as a teacher I want to gain experience (both life experience and teaching experience) in a completely different place.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Having worked as a private tutor, a teaching assistant, and a sports coach, I have the skills required for communicating effectively in different environments. All of these required me to be able to break complex tasks down, allowing the pupil to learn step by step. These skills, combined with my gentle manner and patience, enable me to transfer knowledge in an engaging, relaxed way.
Every person learns in slightly different ways, and part of what I enjoy in teaching (whether it be written english or a sport) is figuring how a person best learns and then adapting my teaching style accordingly. Working abroad provides a fresh challenge to teaching, and I look forward to the opportunity to adapt and learn in a different country and culture to my own.
