Math/Additional Math teacher

Dear Sir/Ma,
I express my interest in the post of a mathematics/additional mathematics teacher at your highly reputed School. I would be delighted to work in your reputable educational institution and utilize all my skills to enhance the prestige of your school.

My hands-on experience includes 8 years as a math and/or additional math teacher- 6 years of which are based on the Nigerian national curriculum and 3+ years on the British(Cambridge) curriculum. In this position, I was able to develop strategies and innovative approaches to students, hence increase individual student performance by up to 60% and class performance by an average of 40%. I have strong analytical thinking along with excellent communication skills with which I was able to easily and interestingly explain complex material to my students and develop their critical thinking and ability to solve problems.

I am a motivated and hardworking person, and I am happy to stay in classroom for extra time, in order to explain to students what they could not understand amidst peers and help them learn additional material. I am also a friendly and responsible team member who maintains a good relationship with all parts of the entire staff.

If you have any question, I would be happy to discuss them in detail in an interview. Thank you for your time and anticipated consideration.
