Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas as I want to further develop my interactions with learning about new cultures and different ideologies. My aim is to complete a post graduate degree in teaching so that I am able to teach photography at a college level I wanted to be able to incorporate my desire to travel to a new city with my career goals of teaching.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am definitely a suitable candidate to teach overseas as I want to be able to challenge myself to teach people who are not of my native language. I would also describe myself as calm, dedicated and reliable and I think these are perfect qualities to teach children of all different ages. I love to travel and have enjoyed visiting Japan and Europe and South Korea is somewhere I have always dreamed of visiting. I also have experience interacting with children as I have two younger brothers of age 5 and 9 so I am used to being around this age as I regularly look after them and have babysat many of their friends. I have a passion for English both reading and writing and studied creative writing at A Level and one of the best parts of my degree for me was writing my dissertation as I felt that this really captured my enthusiasm for research and writing development.
