Jay: 1982: United States: University of Wisconsin-Madison

My method in approaching standardized tests is foolproof regardless of the specific test, as proven by my achieving 99% in all of 3 standardized tests that are known to be more challenging that the SAT (i.e., GRE, GMAT, and LSAT) within a span of 4 months with little additional preparation.

I use my passion in education and knowledge to fuel my desire to instill moral values in the next generation. Influenced by my father, a biomedical engineer who has spent his entire life rehabilitating the disabled, I have an extremely strong sense of morals and feel obliged to pass them on the who will follow.

My ultimate goal is to put all of my experience together to create a STEAM+Ethics curriculum and provide it worldwide.

I am a native-level English speaker. I have lived in the United States for more than 10 years, and attended middle and high school here. I am planning to spend June, July and August in Korea.

I have previous experience with tutoring. Last summer, I tutored ACT’s and science subjects to high school and middle school students in Korea, at Starr Education. I have demonstrated that I am able to teach in both English and Korea. In addition, the year before, I tutored one rising 8th grade and 5th grade students in math and English, for up to 3 times a week. Furthermore, over the course of this year, I had tutored high school students through PennScience Across Ages program.

As a self-identified perfectionist, I am also very attentive to details. This has become an especially important quality while serving as a Vice President to Penn’s Korean Student Association and associate editor for Synapse Journal. These roles demonstrate my ability to work under minimal supervision.

Anna: 1992: United States: University of Chicago

I am a great candidate for this opportunity because I already have experience teaching SAT and ACT courses in Asia, as well as significant EFL/ESOL experience. I love tailoring curriculum to the needs of my students, and I especially enjoy teaching test prep because it helps me lay out clear goals for my students and assess their progress. My strongest skill is English grammar; I actually enjoy explaining the nuances of comma usage. Even better is getting my students to appreciate those nuances!

I'm a firm believer in "funducation," as I like to call it: education should be challenging and fun. One of my proudest moments in test prep teaching was the final Jeopardy-style SAT English review game that I set up to help my students study for their final test. They were all focused on finding the errors in the sentences, and it was incredible hearing these students, who knew little formal grammar before, enthusiastically explain not only what answer was correct, but why it was the best answer.

I'm not satisfied with mediocrity. I like to tweak the curriculum and exercises to meet my students' needs, and I'm constantly thinking of review games to bring the material to life. I love brainstorming with other teachers to solve problems, design curricula, and share activity ideas.

Michelle: 1995: United States: University of Chicago

I have done a fair bit of private tutoring for students ranging from elementary school to college. The majority of my teaching experience comes from swim lessons. I’ve been a swimmer my whole life and I’ve been teaching both group and private swim lessons for 8 years. The sport alone has taught me self-discipline. Teaching swim lessons taught me how to develop and teach personalized lesson for both individuals and groups.

In college, I worked at the Office of Career Advancement for three years for several departments including STEM, entrepreneurship, journalism, arts and media. I’ve worked on many projects all with the goal of facilitating students with the job search and the transition from college to the work force. This experience taught me how to handle multiple projects at once and how to work with both students and administrators.

Last summer I worked for a tech startup called Edovo. They provide tablets which function as online classrooms to inmates across America. As a content intern, I was responsible for creating courses. Most of my courses were reading comprehension, so I would read books and create mini quizzes after each chapter to test for reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. I learned how to create a variety of tests and courses for different education levels.

ChaeYoon: 1990: United States: Cornell University/University at Buffalo

As a teacher, the goals I have for my students are threefold: to foster a personal desire for self-betterment through pursuit of knowledge, to highlight and emphasize specific needs a student should work on for his/her future goals, and to encourage enjoyment of learning.

Having had various leadership and tutoring positions, my experience of teaching does not come strictly from the perspective of formal education, but that of one between manager and subordinate, co-worker to co-worker, and even close-friend to close-friend, all different situations with different people from different backgrounds. The greatest strength I believe this experience affords me is my adaptability in response to the different ways one personally learns best. To put it into other words, I see myself as a catalyst for ones' growth in knowledge rather than one who simply imparts information in a systematic manner.

Teaching is unique in that one must not only effectively communicate a concept both logically and through easily understood metaphors or similes, but also communicate an empathetic message to the ones listening. Through personal experience in college, a teacher or lecturer personally disinterested in seeing the success of one's students will implicitly illicit a matching disinterest in learning.

If a student is struggling due to lack of time, I try to help construct a time-efficient study regiment of core concepts that will help solidify a fundamental understanding of a subject rather than having them brute-force memorize several specific question patterns that they will see on a test. Likewise if a student can grasp a general idea, but has trouble contextualizing it within a specific practice problem, I will focus on having them visualize real-life scenarios connecting concept to question. On the otherhand, Some concepts are inherently formulaic and require memorization through repetition and disciplined practice. My experience is knowing what subjects and concepts are best suited for healthy sustained learning.

My personality is one that finds success in the success of others. Knowing that my contributions lead to growth in others is an innate satisfaction that I believe has led to many happy students to this day.

Kevin: 1995: United States: Columbia University

Dear Recruiter,

I am writing to you with regards to your teaching position over the upcoming summer. I am a second-semester senior at Columbia University, double majoring in mathematics and music. After graduating in May 2017, I plan to stay in Korea over the summer before embarking on my PhD journey in applied mathematics at Johns Hopkins University, starting next fall.

I have always been teaching in one way or another. When I was in Brookline High School, for example, I volunteered as a math tutor at the John Pierce School in the Brookline neighborhood to teach math to elementary school students. I was also the captain of the Brookline High School Math Team at the moment, so I would often teach and discuss mathematical concepts and ways to solve competition math problems (e.g. AMC, Mandelbrot, MAML, etc.) to freshmen and sophomores. Unofficially, I also tutored SAT Math and SAT Subject Math Level 2 after getting perfect scores on both of them.

As aforementioned, I taught math as a tutor at Crimson Consulting, which is an online platform that connects tutors at Ivy League colleges to high school students in/from Australia or New Zealand. As a result, I taught 8 students over the course of 2 years, from Fall 2015 to Spring 2017. This academic year, I've been a teaching assistant for 2 upper-level math classes at Columbia, grading homework and teaching students during help-room hours. Partaking in the math community at Columbia, I also have been giving occasional math talks, i.e. lectures, which have helped me develop better communication skills. For reference, please check out the YouTube link on my CV.

Personality-wise, I try to be as understanding as possible, especially because I was often frustrated with stubborn, one-way teachers when I was the one learning at the time. I have always put premium on being approachable, as I believe personal connection, as opposed to disconnection/sense of hierarchy, undoubtedly pays off in the long run and translates to a better learning curve on the student's part. Communication, on top of quality and efficiency, is definitely what I would prioritize.

Lastly, please note that I speak fluent Korean as well. I was partly raised in Seoul, Korea before I went to Boston.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

Personal Philosophy of Education
As an educator, I feel that education is an integral part in the development of students to become well rounded individuals. William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” It is something that cannot be turned off simply by the ringing of a bell or the time on a clock. I relate strongly with this sentiment and believe that the three fundamental aspects of effective teaching are student centered learning, team activities and respect.
The base of my teaching philosophy is the idea of student centered learning. For too long teachers have put the onus on themselves to facilitate students’ learning without effectively helping them grow. By giving students the tools to teach themselves and do their own research, students are more invested in the activities and responsible for their own growth. I firmly believe that this is the best way to stimulate productive learning for students.
In tandem with student centered learning, team based learning provides a number of benefits for adolescent development. Not only does it encourage the sharing of new ideas so that students may move forward with the help of others, it helps to further productive social skills. Without outside ideas and help, one can only go so far before meeting a wall. With the help of others, students can climb over that wall and go farther than if they were to go it alone.
Lastly and most importantly is the main aspect of classroom life, and that is respect. Without respect, people will not be able to move forward. A respectful environment is important for making a connection with students on a level that goes past teacher and student. Respect helps us work together on a human level and gives students a sense of comfort and belonging in school. When students feel respected and give respect in return, they have a greater sense of self and a connection to all that they do. I believe that this most basic of classroom rules allows for a strong environment for learning and social development.
In the end, education is ever evolving. We as people are constantly learning and doing so in different ways. Sometimes, we need to help of teachers and schools to maximize our educational potential, and in order to do this, teachers need to constantly adapt to their environment. New learning styles, teaching methods and attitudes need to be observed and acknowledged so that education can be as useful and helpful as possible. By using student centered learning, team activities and (above all) respect, I believe students will succeed and evolve into the best people they can become, in and out of the classroom.

Esther: 1992: United States: University of Pennsylvania

I'm a friendly, cheerful person who is eager to help students achieve their best. I have experience volunteering in schools – one serving as an assistant in a high school English classroom, the other co-teaching English to kindergarteners. I'm someone who learns really fast, easy to get along with, and flexible. As I spent a lot of time studying for the SATs in high school, I know helpful tools that can help students do well on the test.

Alex: 1994: United States: University of California, Berkeley

As early as in high school, I took on various roles of teaching. From my experience, I have learned the importance of preparation when it comes to teaching. The effort I put into reviewing and studying teaching materials prior to teaching greatly affects the quality. So I do a very thorough job of understanding what I will be teaching.
Patience is the trait I am confident to use when describing myself. I am always willing to try it different ways to explain until everyone is on the same page, even if that means I need to work longer than usual. I value patience and am proud to view myself as a patient person because it is the base for understanding, caring, and teaching.
I am currently working as a behavior therapist, mainly with autistic children. Everyday, I learn ways to motivate and control others. Alternation between sincere praises and stern directions is the key. Learning becomes more bearable when my clients are motivated. I sense when the willingness for learning is higher, and use those moments t o the fullest by presenting challenging works then.

Jared: 1979: United States: Northwestern University (B.A.)LehmanCollege (Masters)

I am writing to express my interest in teaching English in Korea, preferably in a summer camp setting.

My teaching experiences in Korea have allowed me to work with students from a variety of backgrounds and English abilities. I have taught students in grades ranging from 5th to 12th, as well as university students preparing for graduate school admission. One of my success stories was 12th grade student who had a rudimentary knowledge of the English language. Throughout the semester, we worked intensively to improve his English communication skills through smart technology instruction, reading activities, and explicit phonics instruction. Because I consider myself a lover of languages, I was constantly reflecting on my instruction with this student. I was consistently analyzing data, reviewing his progress and finding ways to push him further. By the end of my work with him, his receptive and expressive English skills had been greatly enhanced, and he was able to gain admission to a rigorous program in Singapore.

In both my current and former positions, I have been working with a group of students who have very diverse learning styles and needs. Currently, I work with middle school students, some of whom have little knowledge of the English language but need tangible progress in order to be promoted to the next grade. My goal is that each student in the class should be given the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential with as much time spent using and exploring the language as possible. Through my experience in the classroom, I have gained the capability to modify my lessons according to level, without sacrificing my uncompromising standards. I am deeply committed to providing a high level of education to all of my students.

I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you to discuss my qualifications as an ESL teacher in more detail.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Ella: 1995: United Kingdom: University of York

I am a hardworking second year Mathematics and Physics student at the University of York and would relish the opportunity to work as a teacher in South Korea. I have many years of experience working as a tutor in Maths and Science, and as a peer mentor.

Throughout secondary school I worked as a tutor in and out of school hours, and won an award for my contribution to the Peer Mentoring scheme. Assisting in classrooms whilst at sixth form helped to develop my confidence in supporting student learning and led me to become Maths/Science tutor during my time at university. My ten-week teaching placement at York College enabled me to gain many transferable teaching skills such as organisation, working in a team with other teachers, determination and my ability to think on my feet.

I am very interested in working towards a teaching qualification after the completion of my Masters degree, and would be very enthusiastic to support the progress of students and gain experience of education in Korea.
