One of the first things our schools will want to know is who you are, here’s a list to help you prepare:
- Where you are from
- Summary of teaching and/or education
- Why you want to teach in China/this city or this age group (or even better, in this particular school (if applicable)
- Relevant Experience:
Consider what you experiences you have that makes you really stand out. Do you have similar working experience; have you done something incredible before that can apply in the classroom? Have you worked with kids of the same age before? Make a list.Points to consider:
- Where have you taught before?
- What ages did you teach?
- What aspects of English did you focus on? (Oral, Reading, Writing, Listening)
- How do you manage your classroom and students?
- What did you enjoy about this experience?
- What did you learn that you think can help you to teach successfully in another position?
- Your Interests:
What interests do you have that might excite a school? Beyond just wanting to teach EFL, do you have other things to offer? Music? Drama? Art? Sports? Tell us about it!
- Who You Are
What’s behind you? Is it distracting? Does it give a bad impression? Is it noisy where you are? Are there other people or sounds that might interrupt your call? Eliminate all these factors before you start.
