  To Whom It May Concern

I am Timothy Thring from Durban, South Africa. I obtained a Bachelor of Business Science (economics) degree in 2012 from Rhodes University, and worked for TNS (a market research company) for 12 months.

 After that experience however, I wished to leave my comfort zone and satisfy my need for adventure and something different. Having really enjoyed being an economics tutor for an outreach program at Rhodes University, I then decided to head for Taiwan to teach English.

Although I had taught before, it was a significant learning experience that required a lot of patience, creativity and energy. This was partly due to the fact that I taught children between the ages of 3 to 16 years for the first time. 

I had been teaching in Tainan, Taiwan for three years with Hess, and loved the culture here. This new experience has enabled me to become a teacher who exceeds expectations, not just meet them. In fact, I won the "Employee of the Year" award in January 2016 at the Hess International banquet. Seeing students grow in confidence and ability is extremely rewarding too, and so I wish to become a teacher again. 

Thank you so much for reading and considering me.

 

Yours Sincerely, 

 

Timothy Thring
