Why do you want to teach overseas?:

After learning about South Korea, studying the language and visiting, I want to learn more by spending time there in a more permanent capacity, particularly to become more culturally sensitive when teaching. Having always enjoyed learning about and being an advocate of the English language, and enjoying being around children and young people, teaching ESL seemed like the perfect option for me. I welcome the experience of living in a new place and integrating as much as I can into the culture, learning from the people (especially the students) as much as they can learn from me. As globalisation increases, it is becoming more important for us all to be able to communicate, especially at a time when the world is suffering from many a crisis, and to be able to contribute to that by encouraging the next generation to communicate with each other (as well as learning myself) makes me feel like I am doing something worthwhile.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

As mentioned previously, I am keen to encourage people from different cultures, including myself, to communicate with each other. I believe I have gained many valuable transferrable skills to assist me in this, from self-confidence and the ability to work well with others, to being creative and communicating effectively in an exciting, bright and upbeat manner (my experience in retail management has often meant creating engaging and educational presentations when training my teams). I am also used to living far from where I originated from; I was born in Jersey but have spent nearly 11 years total living, studying and working in England (7 years in Exeter and nearly 4 years in Manchester), and I very much enjoy the independence. I’m also very much looking forward to learning a new language and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Additonally, I grew up with four younger siblings (and due my first nephew very soon!), so I feel my past personal experience of looking after younger people can serve me well. Finally, I feel that during my 20s I gained a lot of patience and empathy, two aspects I pride myself on that I think are highly important when in charge of the education and welfare of young people, and I look forward to building on those aspects whilst building the minds of the next generations.
