We are looking for friendly, personable, and professionally-minded candidates. Applicants who have teaching experience with children and/or EFL/ESL students are preferable, but this is not necessary for the position. Due to the current issues regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unfortunately only looking for applicants who are currently residing in Japan.
Our instructors teach classes that range from one-on-one private lessons to group lessons of up to five students for all ages and needs. The lesson schedule will vary depending on day of the week, but on average this position features work hours from the afternoon into the evening. The instructor will be responsible for planning lessons and will have no more than 26.7 teaching hours per week. The school is open every week for lessons from Tuesdays through Saturdays with exception to scheduled school vacation periods. A variety of teaching materials for the instructor to use are provided, but the instructor is also free to incorporate any materials that will enhance the learner's experience in class. Training and continual teacher development are provided in addition to five weeks of paid vacation during school breaks.
