Dear Mr Sturt,
Re: TESOL Teacher position
I am writing to apply for the position of TESOL teacher at Detco, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly professional, results-driven TESOL teacher with experience in the development and delivery of language programs to a wide variety of clients encompassing diverse backgrounds, beginners to advanced, from students and migrants to business professionals.
My qualifications include a Professional TESOL Certificate and a Diploma in Business. My professional experience includes three years as an English teacher in Vietnam and almost two years as an ESL teacher in Sydney.
As a teacher and trainer at Stellar Language School in Hanoi, I oversaw the instruction of over 100 students and personally trained five instructors. This role demanded the regular creation of learning materials, the teaching of lessons, workshops and intensive courses, the preparation of progress reports and delivery of in-house testing and instructor evaluations. I oversaw a period where the school achieved the best student retention rates in the country and was commended for my performance.
As an English Instructor at Corpspeak, I gained a wealth of experience teaching business clients a range of business communication skills through five-day intensive language courses. This involved developing customised materials for each client group, and in some cases programs tailored to individual clients.
With my skills, international experience and love for language education, I believe I would be an ideal fit for your school. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to deliver the highest standards of English language teaching and look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
