Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I love experiencing new countries and exploring what they have to offer. When i lived in Japan, i saw so many things that i would never have experienced from a visit, just from being there and interacting with people on a daily basis. I, also, love teaching, as it is always fun to watch someone grow from learning and every individual who learns from you gives you a different experience.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am sociable, approachable and patient as a person, three characteristics which, i believe, are very important to teaching. Being sociable allows you to talk and interact easily with the people you teach, being approachable allows people to come up to you with questions or queries without fear, and being patient gives people time and understanding when they are trying to learn something very difficult. I, also, have experience not only in teaching, but teaching in a foreign country and to non-native speakers of English.
