Listen to what my amazing clients have to say...
“Working with Sorcha provided a direct path from being new international teachers to being hired by one of the best-paying IB schools in Qatar. We are getting excellent IB experience & PD, as well as earning upwards of $120,000 USD per year (tax-free). Considering what Sorcha charged for her services, that means we have enjoyed a HUGE return on our initial investment each year! Sorcha is prompt, energetic, and is an absolute expert. Who else can say they have helped hundreds of teachers over the last few years, and has had a front-row seat to see what works and what doesn't when it comes to getting into dozens of top flight schools around the world?”
“I cannot recommend the Elite (VIP) package enough. I just signed the contract for my new job starting in August! The support I received from Sorcha was unbelievable and her advice on negotiating packages meant I got a 29% percent increase in my housing allowance. I have recommended a number of people to her and every single one of them have secured new jobs. Sorcha is brilliant at what she does and supports you the whole way through from CV writing, to interview techniques, to negotiating packages. I cannot recommend her enough!”
“Just wanted to say thanks a million for your Teach Abroad Course! I used your tips, engaged with the process, and I got 5 interviews and 4 job offers from that! It was amazing as I hadn't even got a reply from previous applications! It's clearly a specific approach that's key to getting that interview! I've accepted a role in Abu Dhabi and I'm so excited to move in August! Thank you!”
“Just to say I took your course last year but paused the job search in the UAE due to COVID. However, I recently applied for a Primary School post this year and got the job! So I will be moving out this August. Thank you so much for all your help and advice. It really allowed me to shape up my application and cover letter with your feedback and tips in mind from last year. I also negotiated a 13% pay rise too, using your advice!”

“I purchased Sorcha's VIP Service in October 2020. I was immediately impressed by her efficiency and her attention to detail - she transformed my cover letter and CV, personalising it for the school I was applying to, elevating it to a new standard to show the best version of myself. Sorcha was also very giving of her time, guiding me through the process for future applications. As a result of her services, I secured 7 interviews for outstanding international schools in the UAE, Vietnam, Malaysia and Qatar and I was offered jobs at Tier 1 schools in the UAE and Qatar! I have just accepted the job offer in the UAE. I would highly recommend her VIP Package.”
Never heard of me before? Here’s why I’m qualified to help you get a great teaching job abroad..
My name is Sorcha Coyle and I have taught in the Gulf (Qatar and Dubai) for the past 10 years. I also run Empowering Expat Teachers, whose mission is to empower future and current expat teachers to lead personally, professionally, and financially rewarding lives. Over the last 10 years, I have been offered 12 teaching jobs at highly reputable schools in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
How did I do this?
- By crafting a memorable and outstanding CV and cover letter that highlighted why I was the best person for the job, which guaranteed me an interview for any teaching job overseas I apply to.
It took me years of experience and practice to get this right, but you can do it straightaway as my creation, Teach Abroad Academy, contains all my expertise and advice in one place! In less than a day, you could have an outstanding CV and cover letter that will help get you an interview for every teaching job abroad you apply to.
Thanks to my time as an expat teacher in Qatar and Dubai, I have been fortunate enough to save six figures, which I have used to purchase 2 beautiful properties (a 4-bedroomed house in my home country and a 3-bed apartment in Spain), start a profitable investment portfolio, complete my Masters, set up my business, travel the world, and now this year, leave teaching to become an entrepreneur. I am a Certified Professional Résumé Writer and a member of the Professional Association of Résumé Writers & Career Coaches and a Level 7 ILM Coach and Mentor, so you are in expert hands!
