Why do you want to teach overseas?:

My interest in teaching overseas mainly stemmed from my masters degree during which I developed an academic interest in Chinese business. This stimulated my initial interest in Chinese culture and was introduced further to me by my friends who were international students from China. This enabled me to develop a deep fascination for Chinese culture and would really like to know more about it on a deeper level and experience it first-hand. Furthermore, although I am yet to secure a teaching position nor have experience teaching English as a foreign language, I do have teaching experience gained informally (unpaid) via teaching my non-native English-speaking friends or volunteering at youth centres to teach teenagers from low income household about life skills. This enabled me to develop a love of teaching and its important contribution to the lives of students. Therefore, upon graduation I decided to pursue teaching jobs overseas as it provides the opportunity for me to develop my teaching skills, make a difference to student’s lives whilst experiencing a new culture.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I believe possess three qualities that are crucial for teaching overseas. These are: caring, patience and flexibility. Firstly, it is absolutely essential that teachers are caring in every sense. This is because teachers that care about their students and their learning are often motivated to explore and try out innovative teaching methods to engage even the most difficult of students, which is a challenging task and thus teachers must care in order to creatively tackle this problem. Secondly, patience is a highly important quality for an overseas teacher due to the many stressors that one may experience when moving to another country as well as when dealing with difficult students. Therefore, it is important for an overseas teacher to be patient as there maybe situations both in classroom or outside which may be frustrating but must be dealt with calmly. Finally, I believe that flexibility is highly essential both as an overseas worker and as a teacher. As an overseas worker one must be able to flexibly adapt to their environment which requires a high level of open-mindedness and develop a culturally responsive mindset in order to fully and effectively adapt to the new culture. As a teacher one would be exposed to challenging situations such as dealing with difficult students as well as encouraging struggling or underperforming students. Overall, I believe that those are the three qualities that I posses and hope to express when I am teaching overseas.
