TO: Whom it may concern
Hello, My name is Lee Head and I am highly interested in a position as an English Teacher. It is my belief that with my experience, educational background and the fact that English is my primary language I can prove to be a valuable asset for your foreign language program. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree as well as a TEFL certification.
I have traveled in many regions internationally in my prior profession and I believe that this experience can prove invaluable in relation to cultural understanding. I became greatly interested in obtaining a TEFL certification in order to change vocation. It is my desire to teach and assist others to learn the English language. I have a 120 hour TEFL certification sponsored by the I-To-I TEFL Program in the United Kingdom as well as a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Florida College.
The many regions I have experience with are the following: • Qatar • Philippines • Thailand • Sweden • Bulgaria • Kenya • Sudan • USA • UK
I believe that my global experience and knowledge of various cultures shall prove invaluable as an educator. I am highly motivated and can begin immediately if required. In regards to my personal background, I was born and raised in central Florida USA and am a native English speaker. After College I was employed in Law Enforcement for approximately 10 years than began working for a private firm. I was employed with the Merrill Firm as a specialist for a approximately 8 years. I than was offered an opportunity to expand my experience and work on a Global level. I continued to work in the Risk Management industry Globally until recently.
I have acquired my TEFL Certification and it is my desire to began a new path teaching others the English language. I have resided in Sweden for approximately 10 years off and on due to obligations on other contracts. I first moved to Sweden in 2007 and immediately began the citizenship process. I currently am a dual citizen and hold valid passports from the USA & Sweden. As such I am also fluent in Swedish as well as my native English language. I understand the challenges students face when trying to learn a foreign language, I had that same experience when I was studying the Swedish language. In addition to being able to teach the English language I can easily introduce the Swedish (Svenska) language to students as a conversational course for students interested.
It is my hope that my introduction letter outlining my background, education and TEFL certification warrant an interest for a position. As I also stated earlier in this letter, I am highly motivated and able to travel with no problem. As such, I am able to begin immediately
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you about any potential opportunity.
