Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I have been teaching young learners in China since October 2019 and I have throughly enjoyed the experience so far. It has been hugely rewarding to see my students make great progress in such a short period of time as a result of my teaching. I have also loved the thrill of living in a different country and learning about a different culture. I know that teaching is what I would like to do long term but unfortunately my time in China has been cut short due to the corona virus. I recently had the pleasure of visiting South Korea and I fell in love with the country and the people. I know that I would be happy teaching and living there.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have lived abroad before and I have the proven ability to adapt well in a different country. I successfully passed the probation period at my school in China and I received positive feedback regarding the quality of my teaching and classroom management. I am a hardworking, highly motivated and creative individual who is committed to helping children and young people achieve their full learning potential.
