Re: Professional English Teacher
To Whom It May Concern,
Please accept my résumé in application for the position of English Teacher.
I have just come back from China since January 13th, where I have been teaching Chinese high school students IELTS and IELTS exam preparation. Luckily, I left on holidays before the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Now, I am still in Jakarta, from where I am applying for jobs starting on July 2020.
Since 2011, I had established two English schools in China, taught Chinese students and business people both French and English, supported Chinese students to go abroad (Canada, USA, New Zealand, Australia, England, and Ireland), explained to them the Canadian education system and how it works, as well as met their parents and communicated with them about the problems of their children and how they can fit and manage in a new Canadian education system. These new skills and international experiences would help me to both defend the interests of the international school I will be working for and better represent them within Indonesia and abroad.
Thanks to these international experiences, I have become well equipped with both language and cultural negotiating skills, which in return have helped me develop rational problem solving abilities that have proven effective in a variety of diverse cultural settings. I am also well-versed in inter-cultural communication and sensitive to the particularities of working between cultures. Furthermore, the establishment of two private schools in China between 2011 and 2015 enriched me with an excellent network of agents, colleges, and universities that I still have good contacts with.
While a student at the University of Regina in Canada, I became aware of the existing international student services offered by both the university and the province of Saskatchewan, such as study permits, work permits, temporary resident visas, permanent residence, student visas, different workshops on immigration, Graduate Tax Benefit Programs, Student Loans, Co-op Program, scholarships, citizenship, family sponsorship, airport pickups, driving license, referral to different NGO’s and government organizations, and admission’s workshops for new students.
I also worked at the ESL Program and the International Student Success Office (ISSO) of Regina’s University. In these two offices, I was responsible for mentoring international students, providing them with information and advice how to fill application forms and submitting them on time to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the costs, and the consequences. An essential part of my job was also to help international students in the process of their study applications, explain to them the documents needed, tuition fees and deadlines, refer them to Canada Revenue Agency and the ESL Program, as well as follow up with their study improvement.
As being an international student who studied in Canada, Germany, China as well as England and now a professional teacher, I am intimately aware of the issues that affect students, such as funding, changing curriculum, culture shock, skills gap, the economic value of a degree, role of and expectations from universities and colleges, and domestic and global competition.
I would love the chance to meet you for an interview to further discuss my excitement about this position and the skills I have that would allow me to excel at it.
