We are looking for fun and energetic teachers with experience teaching English to kids, preferably in an eikaiwa (conversation school) setting. Candidates should have excellent communication skills, a professional attitude, excellent time-management skills, and a passion for being with kids!

Responsibilities include teaching kids (and occasionally adults) in small classes ranging from private lessons (one-on-one) to small groups (up to 9 students). All materials for lessons such as flashcards and worksheets are already prepared for kids classes, so there is very little time required for preparation.

In addition, every fourth lesson is a “special lesson” where students get to practice using English as they make crafts or do activities (coloring Easter eggs, making slime, having an in-class Halloween party, etc.)

Primary Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Teach energetic English lessons to students in small groups or one-on-one primarily ranging from 1 – 12 years old
  • Follow weekly lesson plan outlines to teach lessons that are exciting and motivating for students
  • Participate in promotional events in our schools or at locations around the city to promote and market our English program (hourly wage is paid)
  • Give feedback and ideas for improving lesson plans, curriculum materials, and overall quality of English lessons

Future Duties and Responsibilities

  • This position can lead to a full-time position with more responsibilities in management, marketing, or curriculum/resource development

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Friendly and passionate about teaching children
  • Native-level English fluency required
  • Must currently reside in Japan and hold a working visa
