Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I am a friendly and driven individual who loves to travel – is there a better way to experience the culture of another country than to be fully immersed in a local and authentic setting? Teaching overseas would enable me to travel and experience real life abroad. I love to help people and teaching overseas would help someone develop a life skill. Furthermore, teaching overseas would provide me with some direction with my career prospects, and enable me to figure out what I want to do with my life.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Often, I am described as caring and approachable – and I feel that these are important traits for teachers to have. In addition, I am organised, determined, and work well individually and as part of a team. I like setting small yet achievable goals to help with maximising progress, and have a positive energy which children seem to like. I used to babysit as a teenager, and enjoyed interacting with children.
My creativity and excellent problem solving skills (developed throughout the course of my law degree) would be an asset for a teaching environment, such as finding interesting and engaging methods to make learning English a fun experience for children. I love reading (presently classic fiction in particular) and theatre, which could be an exciting way to engage individuals and groups; I have been in various pantomimes and high school drama productions too, sing, and play the piano. In summary, I have a lot of skills and enthusiasm which would be valuable in a school environment.
I am also a sporty individual, as I used to go to a holiday sports club, and have continued to play netball from primary school up to university.
Furthermore, I have an affinity for picking up languages. I speak basic/intermediate Mandarin (as my maternal family is Chinese) and French. I have also picked up some basic Spanish at high school and whilst travelling. Also, I write a blog about diabetes, so that my English writing skills are fresh and well practiced; teaching overseas would be a fantastic opportunity to write about on my blog, and managing my diabetes abroad.
I am focussed and thorough in my work; I am competent in the use of Microsoft Office and Adobe products, and am willing to learn new skills.
To surmise, I have a range of interchangable skills that would be be an asset to teaching abroad. I am well- read, a fun-loving individual and dedicated person, who would love to help young people develop a life skill.

Additional information:

I am also volunteering at a type one diabetes camp in August, and am DBS checked. This entails looking after children aged 8 to 16, helping them with management of their diabetes, supervising and participating in a range of activities.
