Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I am keen to work overseas to immerse myself in different cultures. I’ve previously lived, worked and traveled in various other countries and fell in love with exploring, finding new ways of life and just living an alternative lifestyle. Since doing my teaching qualification here in the UK I am keen to utilize it in other countries and gain new experiences. I hope to develop my current teaching skills as my career progresses and only have the outlook of becoming a better teacher.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have suitable qualifications which include both my BSc, PGCE and TEFL certificate as well as one year of teaching experience. In addition to this I have also already previously worked overseas and spent substantial amounts of time abroad which supports my decision to again work abroad as I have previously enjoyed my experiences.

Additional information:

I have experience in teaching students aged 4-19 and within various subjects such as math, English, geography and general life skills.
