I developed an interest in teaching English online to children while volunteering as a teacher at a local community organisation. I understand the benefit of learning English and how it can open up many opportunities for children in their future. I believe with my previous experience and skills I would make an excellent ESL teacher and mentor, and be an asset to your company.
I have a Bachelor of Laws from North West University and I have completed an International English Teacher Certificate in TESOL through International TEFL Organization. This certificate has reinforced the skills I have developed as a volunteer teacher, and interacting with children of different language and cultural backgrounds. I am a Native English Speaker from South Africa with a clear and neutral sounding accent. I speak Afrikaans as a second language, so understand the challenges that come with learning a second language such as vocabulary, pronunciation and confidence in speaking in front of others.
I am confident my experience volunteering as a teacher along with my trainer experience in a professional capacity, will be beneficial for inspiring and engaging students to achieve their best within my online English classroom. I am able to effectively manage students in a kind and open manner to ensure all participants learn new skills and have positive outcomes. I enjoy actively engaging with children and teenagers, and spending time with them.
I am ready to discover the joy of teaching and start my online teaching career as an educator with your company with its strong reputation for putting students first and using the latest technology and teaching methods. I am aware of the hours classes are held, and will prioritise being available for as many hours as required. I am artistic, friendly and vibrant with an ability to engage with people of all ages. I am able to work within time limits, follow company procedures and policy, and keep records effectively.
I have all the requirements for teaching online, and am available immediately to start the recruiting process. I have attached a copy of my resume for your review. If you have any additional questions or if there’s any additional information I can provide, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
