Opportunities in Japan For TEFL Qualified Teachers

Date posted:2019-05-11 | Writer: James English School | Email: jessugawara@james.co.jp

James English School is based in Tohoku, the northern part of the main Japanese Island of Honshu. We have been in operation for over 40 years and have established an excellent reputation.  We have schools in 12 locations with our head office located in Sendai, the largest city in this area and have immediate opportunities for TEFL qualified teachers who are available to start at the end of May 2019.


Our schools offer in-house classes for students from 2 years old to 80 years old. Our EFL teachers travel to various companies within the school’s area to teach company employees the English skills required for a global economy.

We offer a wide range of courses for students, from custom-made corporate syllabi to TOEIC or TOEFL preparation. Our teachers are given professional autonomy to be creative with their lessons. James English School supports the teachers and provides guidance for living in Japan. James English School is large enough to have a significant presence in northern Japan while at the same time is small enough to treat the teachers as individuals.


Living and working in the Tohoku Region will provide you with a lifetime of extraordinary memories. Some of your experiences may include visiting the hot springs (onsens), participating in the local festivals, hiking or mountain biking in the summer, and skiing or snowboarding in the winter.


We support our staff! New teachers will have paid training and free Japanese lessons.
