Having lived and worked in Vietnam for the past three years, first as an ESL teacher at ILA Ha Noi and most recently as a private English tutor, I am looking to combine my previous educational experience with my more recent teaching knowledge.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History, and I therefore feel I have an insight into the requirements of the top universities around the world. Being spot on linguistically is obviously key but so is adding something a little extra to make you distinctive. As an English teacher in Vietnam, it’s my job to help students with both their grammar and creative thinking and I have helped many of my own students with their personal statements in order to gain entry to top universities around the world. I have also begun to use Facebook to help Vietnamese students with their university applications and I would like to use these recently developed skills in a more face to face context, with better opportunities for professional development and closer working relationships with applicants.
I have further editing experience from my time as a course developer at Oxford Royale Academy and know the ins and outs of university admissions from working as an admissions assistant at Kings College Oxford.
