I have recently graduated with a bachelors in Law (LLB) and have a 120-hour TEFL certificate. I have all of my documents in order, ready to apply for the visa.

I have five years of tutoring experience with college and university students, having gained transferable skills along the way. I have a lot of experience in retail which has strengthened my communication skills, a legal internship in Shanghai China, and I am trilingual. I have a beginners certificate in Korean and my language experiences will really help me approach teaching from a different perspective.

I would like to work on the outskirts of Seoul or somewhere in Gyeonggi Province but am open to any big city in South Korea. I would like to start working at the end of September or Early October.

Please email me with any job openings/to ask for my resume; LabhuM@hotmail.com

Is your education done in the UK?  If so and your public school was in Britain from grade 7, you can apply here no problem.  Though Korea only checks your university transcripts and uni degree.  So, if you went to school in India for a time, they wouldn't really know I suppose.  As long as you have a UK passport and your schooling, especially  a bachelors degree was done in the UK.  No problems.  Korean hakwons or EPIK doesn't care about the rest of the stuff you have done which actually is quite impressive.  Stress liking kids and if you have done any teaching or volunteering with kids. 

Best of luck.

I have never been to school anywhere apart from the UK. Moved here when I was 5 years old. I've been reaching out to tons of recruiters/applying for direct hire but I haven't had a single interview yet so I'm starting to really worry.

So you have a British passport right? Then why are you even mentioning the Indian part? I bet that's your obstacle right there

Exactly.  There are teachers of Indian ethnicity here but they would just apply as British, Canadian or whatever.  Adding in the Indian part is probably adding confusion and they just move on.  If you're British just say British female.

I always make sure that I put

50% British Isles
25% Belorussian
25% Italian/Native Canadian/Jewish
on my resume.

For clarity.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

It's not really the same, is it? She was born in India. It's not just an ethnicity thing. It's not the same  as the "Italian" from Brooklyn.

Saying that I understand the advice to just put British when applying for jobs in Korea.

Pretty sure the kevster is just taking the piss.

At any rate, if she did literally all of her schooling in England then I'm betting she has a British passport. Country of birth is irrelevant really.

I was :)

Yeah, as long as you are a citizen and you went to an English language uni, you're good.

Obviously, if you speak with a thick Indian accent, no amount of citizenship or schooling will save you. :(

I picked up on that. I was simply pointing out it's a little different than the Americans who like to say they  are *insert ethnic background*. She is presumably a dual national at this point. And obviously using the British side is the best advice.
