Director of Studies
I am interested in working as Director of Studies for your organisation. I am an EFL language instructor with nearly 10 years’ experience to offer you. I enclose my resume as a first step in exploring the possibilities of employment with Interplay Languages.
My most recent experience was implementing English Through Drama workshops for use with corporate clients. I was responsible for the overall pedagogical content, including the student coursebook. In addition, I developed the first draft of the teacher’s handbook.
As Director of Studies with your organisation, I would bring a focus on quality and effectiveness to your syllabus design. Furthermore, I work well with others, and I am experienced in course planning.
I would appreciate your keeping this enquiry confidential. I will call you in a few days to arrange an interview at a time convenient to you. Thank you for your consideration.
