Teachers are expected to plan and teach their own lessons based on English Station curriculum (planning time is paid). Curriculum is provided in the form of textbooks for each class, but teachers are encouraged to go outside the text and develop original activities, projects, and games for their classes. We believe that language is not a school subject— it is a tool for interpreting and interacting with the world.
We offer traditional eikaiwa-style classes, as well as less traditional “Activity” classes. Activity classes cover topics such as video production, rhythm, and design. We especially want teachers with scientific and artistic backgrounds who are willing to help develop curriculum for activity classes. If you have skills that may lend themselves to an Activity class, please emphasize this in your cover letter.
Preference will be given to candidates who expressly wish to stay for at least one year. Teaching is relational work, so we highly value teachers who can build and maintain trust with their students and coworkers.
Please include a half-page to one-page cover letter describing your interest and experience in education, as well as any relevant personal details you think we should know.
We look forward to hearing from you!
