Dear Hiring Manager,
As a skilled and enthusiastic ESL teacher with experience in teaching a variety of ages, levels, and class sizes, it is with great pleasure that I submit my enclosed resume to you. This experience, combined with my education and passion for teaching is sure to position me as an ideal fit for your school.
Classroom management, efficiency, and creativity are just a few areas of my expertise, honed through teaching in a range of educational environments. My passion for creating fun, engaging and unique lessons has worked effectively in producing happy, motivated and successful ESL students.
My qualifications relevant to this position include a bachelor's degree in English Language and Linguistics and 140 hours of TESOL training. My professional experience has seen me take on two roles during my time spent in Hanoi, Vietnam for the past 15 months.
As a teacher at Binh Minh Education I have created and executed lessons for elementary school students, in class sizes ranging between 40 and 70 learners. This position has required very effective classroom management, flexibility and endless creativity to stimulate and ensure the success of such a large number of students.
Furthermore, my experience at Cleverlearn Language Center has allowed me to focus on smaller class sizes and a wider range of ability levels. This has developed my aptitude to focus and tailor classes to the individual needs of each learner.
I’m confident that my skills, passion, and international experience would be an asset to your establishment. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this position with you further.
Please review my resume for additional details regarding my professional history, education and contact information.
