An activity teacher resume illustrates the candidate's proficiency in providing instrumental coaching, physical education, craft, drawing, or vocal training, where the teaching may be associated with schools, colleges, private institutions, or community based establishments. Where the students come from different backgrounds, the nature of job is also diverse, incorporating several aspects to ensure their smooth progression in terms of learning.

In order to project your profile as a highly desirable one, you need to connect your expertise to the vision of the institute by being specific to the requirements laid down by the employer. And, this calls for the omission of less significant details pertaining to the employment; only those skills that match the core aspects of this profile need to be included in your skills section and all the general job roles that you've played need not be discussed. Ideally, the length of a resume should be restricted only to a page, thus facilitating a quick, personalized, and highly informative reading experience; nonetheless, this is not an obligation.

You need to indicate through your qualities the benefits that you will hold for the institution once employed.

The primal parameter for a successful resume says that it needs to be employer-centered in order to capture the reader's attention. Same is the case with your cover letter. You need to use your application as a tool to bridge the gap between your interests and the employer's vision.
