Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I appreciate experiencing different kinds of life and culture where I can use my skills and broaden my horizons, and help others to enhance theirs.
The opportunities for teaching and supporting others are greater overseas than in my native country, and with the added bonus of immersing myself in a different country and helping others to learn a skill that would allow them to do the same.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

With past experience teaching overseas and working in numerous different environments, I have encountered people from various walks of life. This has led to a flexible and open-minded approach to life and work, allowing me to be helpful and supportive to a wide range of people.

Additional information:

Over the past year or so I have developed an interest in South Korea and its people, nature, food and language. In my spare time in the UK I enjoy studying Korean on Duolingo and cooking Korean food. I also appreciate the culture and the possibilty of experiencing this first hand is an exciting one.
