Work Experience

Position


Job title: ESL Teacher
Employer: IH Apollo English Vietnam
Date of employment: 10/11/2017 – 21/02/2019
Summary of role:

Full-time teacher. Minimum 19 teaching hours a week, teaching students from 3-17 year olds. Most of my classes were kindergarten and primary from 3-11 year olds.
I planned student-centered lessons based around the in-house teaching resources. Gave and marked tests based on the Cambridge exams. Wrote end of unit/course reports for each student. Filled in the class registers after every lesson. Gave a one-off Cambridge Starters exam preparation course and incorporated Cambridge exam (pre-A1 to A2) prep lessons into the syllabus. I also did placement testing, demo classes to prospective students, and several marketing events.
I attended monthly teachers’ meetings, quarterly town-hall meetings, and frequent Professional Development learning sessions. PD topics included: the lexical approach, pronunciation, classroom management, student engagement, project-based learning, and ActivInspire (IWB software) training.

Position


Job title: EFL Teacher
Employer: CLAC (Cambridge Language And Activity Courses)
Date of employment: 07/07/2017 – 30/07/2017
Summary of role:

As a residential EFL teacher at a summer camp for 13-17 year olds, I had three English language lessons a day, each with a different ability level. I then planned my lessons for the next day alongside helping with the social program and leading students on trips, and sometimes working on bedtime duty.
Because it was my first TEFL job I quickly learnt how to plan engaging lessons in a short amount of time, often in quite a busy and stressful environment. And to communicate with other teachers to ensure we did not cover the same material in classes.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Teaching overseas combines my joy of teaching children with my love of exploring new countries. I get a lot of joy from teaching children, and the relationships I made with students in my old job gave me a lot of happiness. Seeing them grow and develop their abilities because of me is very rewarding. At the same time I love immersing myself in new cultures and food, making new friends and exploring new places. Getting to know the rhythms and routines of an unknown city. I like going somewhere where I know nothing, and learning everything I can about the people, their history, food, customs and traditions. Being an English teacher in a foreign country allows me to combine these two things that fill me with joy.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am easy going, curious, thoughtful and friendly. These qualities have allowed me to have incredible experiences whilst travelling alone and make some close relationships with people I met. I have taught overseas before and the independence it gave me was amazing. I learned it was important not to have preconceptions about places or people, and be open-minded and respectful of differences. I understand that things I believe might be completely new and foreign to my students, or just irrelevant to them. It was important to be respectful of differences, not only with students but with other staff-members and local teachers. Although each country, school, and student are different, I think people are more similar than they are different. I do not like going to a new country and being separate from the local culture, and I always try hard to immerse myself as much as possible.
