◆ Who We Are
Yaruki Switch Group is the largest private education group in Japan, comprised of 8 total brands with more than 2,000 directly owned and franchise-managed schools nationwide. Leveraging 30+ years of industry experience, our English language schools – Kids Duo, WinBe, Kids Duo International, and i Kids Star – are specifically tailored for young learners, with a focus on teaching through fun, hands-on activities and exposure to practical, usable English!
◆ WinBe: Main Responsibilities & Duties
WinBe is a time-tested, continuously expanding English conversation school with locations all over Japan.
Our goal is to bring English education in Japan to a new level, with outstanding results gained from a conversation and culturally driven curriculum. Our instructors are encouraged to provide students with fun and creative classes that focus on real-life conversational skills - we believe when students are having fun, they are more engaged; and when instructors are having fun, they provide the best possible lessons!
The native English instructor is the centerpiece of a WinBe school.
WinBe instructors work with their school's Japanese staff, head office staff, and other WinBe instructors to assess the needs of their students and provide them with the best possible lessons. Most students are children ages 3-14, but instructors may be asked to teach both children and adults. Classes emphasize practical language, and instructors conduct their classes completely in English. While WinBe has a set curriculum, instructors use their creativity to prepare fun and interesting classes that best suit their students; this allows ample creative freedom to inject passion and enthusiasm into your class.
Instructors work 8 hours a day, including a 45-minute break, 5 days a week (generally Tuesday through Saturday).
Shift times are typically 13:00-21:00 on weekdays, and 10:00-18:00 on weekends (schedules may differ school by school).

・Can be team-oriented, passionate, enthusiastic, and creative in your approach to teaching children
・Have a strong sense of professionalism, and are self-motivated
・Prior experience with children (teaching or otherwise) is preferred
*Our curriculum puts emphasis on pronunciation and phonics practice.
