Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you want to become an English teacher?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“Thank you for inviting me to be interviewed for this position today. I have a great passion for the English language, and in particular, imparting my knowledge onto others through effective teaching methods. Apart from having many years’ experience teaching a variety of classes, the skills and qualities I possess that will make me a competent English teacher include, excellent spoken and written skills, confidence in my subject, patience, clear diction and also the ability to think laterally to get my subject across to everyone, regardless of their age, background or their level of ability. If you hire me as your English teacher, I can ensure you that you will be getting someone who is professional, self-motivated, highly-organized, and purely focused on teaching the curriculum that is set by the school.”

Q2. Why do you want to work for our school/college as an English teacher?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“The first thing I did when I saw this position advertised, was to spend some time carrying out research into what you are like as a school, the standards you set and also the mission you have in regard to teaching. It quickly became apparent that you not only have high standards, but that you also have a genuine desire to help your pupils and students develop the necessary skills and qualifications to succeed in life. As we all know, teaching the English language is very important, and it is one of those subjects that underpins the foundations for success in other subjects. On that basis, there comes a huge amount of responsibility with the position of English teacher, and I only want to teach at a school where I will be supported to maintain the highest standards achievable. Once I had finished my research, I was very excited to submit my application and I feel strongly you will be impressed with my teaching abilities, professionalism, and strong work ethics if you hire me as your English teacher.”
