Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Having had the opportunity to live abroad already, I am keen to expand my horizons further and take the opportunity to live and work in another country. My time in the US granted me the chance to try out so many things that I’d never been able to do, and I believe that going overseas to teach will grant me a much more unique and fulfilling experience than remaining to teach in the UK. My degree is interdisciplinary, and therefore I have been granted the opportunity to work with students from a variety of backgrounds. I believe that one of the best ways to learn about another culture is to experience it yourself. Through the opportunity of working as a teacher, I would be able to share my own culture with others whilst learning about another myself. I’ve decided I want to pursue teaching specifically as it is something I found a passion for during my time as a tutor. Being a teacher means that every day is different and completely unpredictable, and one of my favourite parts of my previous tutoring job was helping children to flourish and enjoy learning in their own creative ways. I would jump at the ability to be able to help children overseas accomplish their own goals as well.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I’m a suitable candidate for a variety of reasons. Firstly, I have a lot of experience in a classroom environment, and with working with a range of children of all ages and academic abilities. Therefore, I have a very flexible and creative approach to tasks, which is a crucial skill to have as a teacher. I enjoy working with children a lot due to how imaginative and fun-loving they are, and I have been able to learn a lot as a teacher from the children I have been given responsibility over. Besides working with children, I also have experience in planning and running workshops, and in maintaining progress reports to feedback to parents and guardians. Not only is being a good leader in the classroom important, but it’s also important to be able manage your time and to keep records of what lessons are planned and on individual progress.

Furthermore, I am very used to moving around and living independently. I left home at eighteen to move to the other side of the country to go to my chosen university. I have also lived in the US for a year, during which I not only had to continue with my studies, but also had to quickly adapt to a completely new culture. However, I was able to quickly settle in and make a home for myself. I have a very keen interest in travelling, and I have been able to travel to many countries throughout my degree. If given the position, I would love to make complete use of my holiday and free time in exploring Asia even more, and adding to the countries and cultures I have been able to experience.
