Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I’ve always had a real passion for travelling and experiencing new cultures – I’ve known a career overseas is what I want ever since I started university. I love being able to go to new places and immerse myself in a different way of living, taking great enjoyment in being able to see how places around the world differ. Teaching in Korea would fulfil this goal for me; allowing me to live in a modern yet very unique culture that has so many parallels and distinctions from life here in the UK.
I’ve previously lived in Australia for my undergraduate study and really loved being able to experience a different way of life. Being able to do something different and exciting is really important for me in a career, and I just know that teaching overseas is the right path for me. I feel I’d really benefit from the experience of living and working in Korea and love the idea of making a career out of teaching overseas.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Foremost, I’m a great people person – I just love being able to meet new people on a regular basis and build great social and working relationships with them. I’ve previously been the Social Secretary of my university’s law society where I was responsible for running numerous large events, and feel this has given me excellent experience in working with others. I also moved to Australia on my own, having never been before and knowing no one there. Despite this, I quickly settled in and built a great social network with other like-minded individuals – and feel being adaptable like this is a crucial skill for teaching overseas.
I’m also really good at conveying information in a simple and understandable way, something that is vital when teaching. I find that I have a real talent for being able to easily break down topics into small yet informative pieces, before building that into a bigger picture of learning. I’ve been told this so much so by my colleagues that I even started my own law revision website this month – lawstudy.co.uk – it’s still very much work in progress (check out the Sale of Goods section!) but really helps to demonstrate my passion for learning.
Building on from this, I’m also a really innovative and creative person. I love being able to explore new technologies and integrate them into my personal and work life. Especially in a tech-forward place as South Korea, I feel this would really help me excel in TEFL.

Additional information:

Have lived in Australia for over a year, also travelled to Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand.

Previously been on study exchange to Japan and took Japanese lessons for a year (my Japanese isn’t great!).
