I am writing to express my interest in a English teaching position. I graduated from Marshall University Forensic Science program. I have Master of Science in Forensic Science, a Bachelor of Science degree in Forensic Science, a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry. Both my Masters and Bachelor degrees are from the US.

During my last semester of my undergraduate study I did a study abroad program in Japan, Hikone, Shiga. Recently, I was involved in an event as a buddy where we had the KBG84 granny idols come to Singapore to perform. I also have experience tutoring children English. I have also been involved in various school activities and held several leadership positions, including being the President of International Club and the Resident Assistant during my undergraduate study. Through my involvement in diverse areas, I have strengthened my communication and leadership skills.

I may not have much experience but I am willing to learn, flexible, and passionate. I am not a native by definition, but I believe my English level is on par with one. I have copy pasted my resume below, please take a look and do let me know if there is anything else is needed. I appreciate your time and consideration in reviewing this application and look forward to a reply!
