As the job title typically connotes, English teachers essentially refer to that category of language educators whose primary duty is to instruct and teach the students the principles of English as a language so that the tutees can have better understandings in both the verbal and non-verbal use of English.
Other job duties associated with the teaching of English as a profession include; creating and sustaining and appropriate teaching-learning atmosphere; developing teaching approaches that ensure that the standard syllabuses are complied with; assessment of the students’ efforts; as well as recording and safekeeping the results of such performances.
English teachers are most often than not employed in either middle schools or high schools. They are also recruited in post-secondary educational institutions and colleges.
The most salient qualities and attributes expected from a teacher, and an English one in particular include tremendous written and oral communication skills needed to effectively disseminate the curriculum; outstanding listening skills; spectacular organizational expertise; unbridled patience and perseverance; as well as a remarkable and in-depth knowledge of English language and its associated technicalities.
A potential candidate applying for employment as an English language teacher has to convincingly demonstrate his/her expertise, competence and suitability for the position. Making use if cover letters is a good way to achieve this, and an adequate example is provided below thus;
