      I wish to teach abroad within Southeast Asia. But I can barely find jobs that I could reach their requirement.

      I'm not a native English speaker and still pursuing Degree in TESOL. I previously graduated in Diploma in Business Admin. But I've been in teaching industry for some years during college time until now as an English private tutor. I really love teaching (especially children) and hope to teach in various places and countries to gain more experience.

      Hope to get some navigation here. Thank you so much for spending your time on my doubt.

      Most schools in China and Thailand have native English speaker as a requirement but will consider non-native given their need and the individuals English ability.  The degree issue stems from requirements for a visa/work permit so sometimes schools can't get around this.  That being said, you are more likely to find a position in rural schools that have more need for a teacher.  Additionally, some rural schools are given a waiver from the government allowing them to hire non-degree holders.  Unfortunately, there are very few of these schools and I don't know which ones.
