Dear Ms. Jessy:
Re: Position as ESL instructor
After learning from my friend and your employee, Joe Brown, about the outstanding work that is being done at the North Shore Multicultural Society, and after viewing your website, I was delighted to learn of the above-mentioned posting. I live on the North Shore, and as an ESL teacher who was an immigrant 17 years ago, I believe in the work you’re doing, and I believe I would be the perfect fit for this job as it involves teaching immigrants. I, therefore, wish to apply for the position of ESL teacher.
Sometimes, I believe that we need to see the world through the eyes of immigrants if we really want to assist them, and I know I can do that well. When I migrated to Canada, I realized that even though English was my first language, I still needed assistance with making the cultural leap. That is what I have to offer, if I were given the opportunity to teach immigrants at this multicultural society. I’d have a lot to share and could offer invaluable assistance to immigrants so that they can fit into their new society.
Additionally, my academic background has prepared me for this position. My qualifications include:
• 31 years’ teaching experience, 10 of which were gained teaching ESL to adults in post-secondary institutions,
• Experience successfully teaching ESL students at various ability levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced classes, which resulted in a 95% pass rate for all my classes,
• B.A. (Hons.) English, Dip. Ed., TESOL Diploma (VCC), BC Teaching Certificate.
I am confident that my teaching experience, combined with my professionalism, has provided me with the expertise you require to empower immigrants at the North Shore Multicultural Society. Please contact me at (604) 123 4567. I would welcome an opportunity to speak with you about how I can contribute to your organization. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you for your consideration.
