Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

In terms of teaching abroad, I have always enjoyed the concept of being a global ambassador and participating in cultural exchange. I am a firm believer that through knowledge comes understanding which will make for greater and more positive international relations and that the most powerful way to achieve this is though education. I myself have been heavily interested in Korean culture for many years now and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to teach abroad, especially Korea. l I am currently taking a TEFL course which I have yet to complete in order to make me even more suitable for the role.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have worked with people and children of different ages and abilities. I have worked as a student support advisor at the University of East London for incoming students and students who were just settling into the new academic year with any queries regarding academic and student life.
Apart from this I have been working as teaching assistant at primary schools, providing extra support for children, by conducting lessons for smaller groups of children or on a 1 to 1 basis, as well as managing any other school duties both inside and outside the classroom, such as in the playground, preparing lessons and class materials, maintaining the classroom or supporting the children emotionally, which I have learnt is just as important as supporting children academically.
I have also worked as an Special Educational Needs (SEN) teaching assistant, working with children with learning disabilities, primarily those on the Autistic spectrum and children with behavioural problems who found it difficult to stay focused and follow tasks. This in particular was very challenging as I would also have to support children with personal care (e.g toileting) and would often have to deal with children who were difficult to control which would sometimes result in them being violent. Although demanding, the experience was very rewarding as I thoroughly enjoy the process of helping children progress and excel to be the best they can be even when the odds are against them and would happily do it again.
I am very enthusiastic and passionate about education and the welfare of children in general and have always found it especially easy to form a bond with children due to my warm nature and patience, whilst still acting as an authoritative figure and highly praised educator. I have very strong work ethic and have always been a great addition to a team, all of which I feel is valuable to any school.

I believe my passion for education and the welfare of children combined with my keen interest in cultural exchange would make me an ideal ESL teacher.
