English Station is seeking several English teachers for elementary and preschool students. Available classes are 2-5 days per week, Tuesday through Saturday. Curriculum will be provided for most classes, but teachers are welcome and encouraged to make creative adjustments according to their students’ needs.
English Station is a new English program opening in Suita, Osaka. We focus on after-school English classes for elementary-aged children, but will also offer programs for older kids and adults. Our aim is to boost our students’ confidence and self-awareness as global citizens through fun and energetic English language education. We will offer skill-based electives (such as video production, rhythm, and art classes) in addition to our more traditional, textbook-based classes. We believe that the most important thing teachers do is build trusting, supportive relationships with their students, helping students express themselves honestly and effectively.
We teach children- not curriculum. We do not aim to manufacture English-speaking robots. We want to cultivate complex, healthy, and humorous English-speaking human beings.
