Why do you want to teach overseas?:

After working as a Marketing Intern in Beijing for an education company, Pingo Space, I became very interested in children’s education after witnessing the cultural differences in learning styles. This built upon the interest I have in the different ways in which people learn, an issue I considered when being a student tutor at university. In China I had the opportunity to help with the design of lessons, create teaching material and run teaching activities for children aged seven to eleven. I really enjoyed being part of this process through planning lessons that inspired children to want to learn and encouraged them to be inquisitive.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

My experience working in China has enabled me to adapt well to new situations and has given me the resilience to be able to deal with some of the challenges involved with working overseas. As well as assisting with teaching children in China, I have tutored a sixth form student on their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) through a scheme during university. These experiences have helped me adapt my communication style and will help me communicate well with children from a variety of ages. This displays my appreciation of the impacts of education, which underpins my ability to build rapport with students and my desire to teach overseas.
