Information about Alexander
Before my move to Asia, I was unsure about what I wanted to do, so I spent a year between jobs looking for something that really connected with my skill set and drives. I most enjoyed working as a private tutor for pupils who were preparing for their GCSE examinations. In that job, I was able to set clear goals for each session and developed a really good rapport with my students and their parents.
During this time, I also volunteered at a local primary school, so that I might get a better awareness of the teaching methods. There I was able to work with many teachers who were extremely passionate about their vocation and I came to appreciate how they and later I could influence students learning and lives in a positive way.
Soon after, I obtained a TEFL certificate and signed up to the government managed ESL program in South Korea. I have always had a strong drive to learn about the world around me and share that knowledge, which is why throughout my educational career This enthusiasm, to learn, was particularly useful in my first and second years of ESL teaching in South Korea. I was given the opportunity to develop my own theme based curriculum and materials, which was a substantial undertaking and thoroughly enjoyable, as I was able to share a lot of my learning and interests with my students.
I was also able to work on my classroom management skills during those two years, as often there would be forty plus students to a class. I had to ensure that they were well behaved, focused on their tasks and not falling behind and respectful to each other.
After two years of working in a high school, I decided to work with a flagship cultural project that had just been approved by the government. With them I compiled a textbook and recorded gigabytes of audio for elementary and middle schools. I worked tirelessly each week on a countless different programs with a team of other skilled ESL teachers of differing backgrounds, cultures and skills.
I was working for a franchise company in Singapore that specialised in EAL from nursery level until their version of SATs. I have learnt a lot about subject delivery and how to set achievable goals for my students. I also work closely with their parents and have learnt recruitment skills having personally taking their intake from 80 to 220 students based mostly on recommendations from parents who appreciated my teaching methods and dedication.

Experience: For the past six years I have been working as an ESL teacher in Asia working in both the public and private sectors in South Korea and Singapore. Prior to this, I worked as a private tutor in Wiltshire and prepared many pupils for their GCSEs.
