Takara English School has two locations in the countryside north of Tokyo. One school is in the little town of Mashiko, which is world famous for pottery, and the other is nearby in a small city called Moka.
Our classes are mainly for elementary school kids. However, we offer classes for adults, high school students, and some after school classes for the kids at a nearby kindergarten run by a Buddhist temple. We also do short, music based programs for toddlers and kindergarten aged kids with their parents. Hopefully our school can expand on those, or other kinds of programs, with your help.
We are looking for an experienced, happy, friendly, positive, university graduate to help us.
We would really love to find someone who can add to our small school. For example, someone who is an expert at teaching phonics, or has some expertise in teaching EFL through games, crafts, or music.
What we are looking for…
• a BA (if you need us to sponsor your Visa)
• a native English speaker
• someone who is very kid-friendly
• a good sense of humor
• a good listener
• loves to talk, talk, talk
• has many interests
• someone with a lot of empathy
• a non-smoker
• no criminal record
• experience teaching EFL
A full-time position’s pay starts at 200,000 Yen-240,000 Yen a month. Depending on experience, you would start at the lower range and be eligible for a raise after one month of observation.
We can sponsor your visa, and get you settled into a furnished apartment.
This position would be ideal for someone who likes countryside living and it might be perfect for someone who is interested in pottery, craft fairs, country side cafes and playing music, since our town is well known for that kind of stuff.
We hope that you will send us…
• a resume, please include information about your BA and your teaching skills
• a recent photo
• a letter telling us about you, what you’ve been up to, and what you are looking for
We want to reply to everyone who contacts us, but, if you do not have the qualifications we are looking for, we will not respond. If you do meet our requirements, don’t worry if we take a little time to get back to you - our priority has to be teaching our students.
Hopefully we can do an interview by Skype with you soon.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
