CAREER OBJECTIVES

I am a 23-year-old graduate from Vietnam National University, Hanoi. I completed two courses majoring in English language and studies, and Tourism studies in June 2014. Two month later (in August 2014), I took a TESOL course (Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages). My goal is to become an excellent English teacher who can inspire students with English language and the joy of life. My first step to start this career was working as a teaching assistant at British International School Hanoi in November 2014. After quite a long time working there, I think I should take more challenges in life as well as do something more exciting. Therefore, I am now looking for a position in professional and energetic education organizations in order to gain more experience and enhance my abilities.
