-Teacher`s work load is about 5 to 6 classes per day (50 minute classes); sometimes less with cancellations.
Average class size is 3 students; however classes can range from one person to 6 people.
-School staff comprised of one Japanese manager and 2 foreign teachers.
-Applicant would ideally already be located in Japan, though this is not absolutely necessary.
-Applicant MUST have experience teaching English as a Foreign Language at a private language school. Assistant English Teacher (AET) experience alone is not suitable for this job.
-Applicant MUST have a proper university diploma (original needed) so that we may sponsor a working visa.
-Applicant SHOULD have a TEFL certificate (Cambridge RSA/CELTA or similar) Applicant with SOLID experience teaching TEFL overseas may be considered even if they do not have a TEFL certificate.
-Applicant should have a genuine enjoyment of teaching and a positive attitude. We enjoy a happy working environment and we would like to keep it that way.
-Applicant does not need to know Japanese, but it is to his/her benefit to learn it.
-Applicant MUST have a driver`s license; as they will need to travel to a company class (10 minute drive) twice a week.
-Applicant does not need to wear a suit everyday to work. (However one suit is necessary to have on hand for special occasions.) IT IS EXPECTED, however, that the applicant dress tidily. Good-looking cotton trousers, khakis, or jeans and nice shirts acceptable; torn, faded, shabby and /or sexually revealing clothing is obviously not acceptable.
-Applicant must have a hospitable attitude. In the countryside many students come not just to learn English but also to get the chance to spend some time with a foreigner and to learn about their culture. Sometimes this is even more important than learning the language (to them).
-Applicant will be expected to follow the general syllabus of the school; however, other activities and games are up to the teacher`s own creativity as long as they are appropriate activities. This is an excellent chance for someone who does not fit the mold of the strict syllabi of chain English schools-- a great place for a creative and flexible person.
-Applicant will undergo a 2 week training and observation period until they settle into their new position.
