Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I would like to teach overseas for a number of reasons. First to be a part of a classes learning experience. I have always had so much fun working with kids and developing new ways for children to learn. From personal experience, the younger you are and the more positive and safe your learning environment, students can be all the more productive, confidently themselves, and achieve longevity in their practice to maintain the language. I want to be a positive and supportive part of my classes journey to become confident English speakers.
Secondly, I have never been to South Korea cannot think of a better way to experience the unique culture of the country than to be immersed. While teaching English, I will have the opportunity to get to know the country, the food, the music and most importantly the people and their children!

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

While never having taught EFL before, I have taught in several different environments and two languages. I have been working with children since I was 13 and pride myself in creating a safe, inclusive learning environment, whether it be for one child or twenty. For example, while teaching kindergarten in Quito, myself and my colleagues often had children with undiagnosed learning or other disabilities in our classes. It had been about 3 weeks with one of my classes and I noticed one of my students would become extremely frustrated when asked to share group worksheets with his fellow students. Due to lack of resources, we weren’t able to provide extra worksheets. This child could not be left behind in the leaning process. I made a quick decision, and we went to a patch of dirt near where our makeshift classroom was, we found a stick, and he perfectly wrote his numbers 1-10 in the ground with correct spelling. I do my utmost to ensure that every student of mine is able to come away from my class having learned something, and part of this, especially with children, is recognizing that using different teaching methods and understanding your students are an essential to a productive, but also enjoyable classroom!
