World Aid,
Palmers House,
(4) Dear Mr Cartwright,
(5) I am writing to apply for the job of volunteer worker which I saw advertised in The Guardian last week. I would be interested in teaching
maths to primary children in your camp in Chittagong in Bangladesh. I enclose a copy of my CV.
(6) I am 18 years old and I have just finished secondary school in Newcastle. I would like to work for you because I am very interested in
teaching. I would also like to learn about a different culture as I feel that intercultural understanding is extremely important.
(7) I am a hard-working and committed person. I have participated for the last three years in a voluntary programme, Community Links, visiting
elderly people in my local area. I also feel that I can get on well with people from other cultural backgrounds, since I have also taught
immigrant children English at our church school.
(8) I think I would be a good primary teacher of maths due to my teaching experience. Also, I have recently passed my Maths A level (grade B),
so I have a good understanding of the subject. In addition, I hold a certificate in first aid, which might be useful.
(9) I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,
(10) Maureen Taylor
