Dear Ms. Melanie Cantrell,
I am writing to apply for the position of ESL Instructor at Columbia School of English and I have the education, training and skills to be the best candidate to fill this opening.
I have a bachelor degree in English with courses that focused on the English literature, literary history, culture and criticism. My classes also covered research writing along with professional and applied writing. I passed the ESL test and obtained my teaching certificate.
I am qualified to teach foreign students how to speak, read and write English proficiently. I also have the skills to teach these students how to understand what the words mean when someone is speaking to them in English.
I have the training to create a curriculum that teaches students the basic skills needed to learn English including correct pronunciation. I know which textbooks to use for the best results and I am familiar with a variety of training videos that can help teach, based on the specific needs of the students. I also have the teaching skills to put together quizzes and exams to gauge how well the students are learning.
I speak two languages fluently. I am also very familiar with the different cultures behind these languages and how it can affect the way a student learns. I have lots of patience to work with students to help them learn every aspect of the English language. I am very creative, easy-going and I enjoy working with and meeting new students.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
