Established in 1985, Tokyo International School Group (TISG) runs Tokyo International School Afterschool (TISAS), Tokyo International School Kindergarten (TISKG) and Tokyo International School Learning Through English (TISLTE) at our Nakameguro and Minami Azabu model school campuses in Tokyo.

TISAS is an after-school program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 3 days per week) for non-native English-speaking children. TISAS Academic is an advanced program for students who have graduated from Grade 4 of the TISAS Program, or returnee students who meet a high English language ability level. The objectives of the course are to develop students’ ability to research and discuss topics of social interest. Students will also develop their 21st Century Skills, essay writing, and presentation skills.

We currently run 4 classes: grade 5, grade 6, grade 7/8, and grade 9/10. Grade 5 and grade 6 students attend class online twice a week with classes running from 5 pm to 6.50 pm, while grade 7/8 and 9/10 students attend class in campus twice a week from 7:10 pm to 9:00 pm. We have two teachers and they are each in charge of two grades. During the class, the students work on projects either individually or in groups. Using iPads provided by the school, the students produce presentations, book reports, and videos that provide information on various topics. The students also do a language arts focus and study graded readers as well as the vocabulary and grammar associated with their level.

In addition to the classes, the students have a 25-minute video tutorial once a week with their teacher. The tutorial is done via Google Hangouts. During the tutorial, the teacher assists the students with any questions related to class and homework, as well as helping them to prepare for the upcoming lesson. Tutorials are also used to work on specific issues that the student may have, for example, writing skills, research skills, presentation skills, and reading skills.

POSITION DETAILS: We are currently looking for 1 teacher to join this program. The work hours for the teacher will be from 1 pm to 9 pm Tuesday to Friday and 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday. However, it must be mentioned that the Teacher is expected to put in the hours necessary to provide students with a learning experience of the highest possible quality.

IDEAL CANDIDATE: We are looking for a confident, dedicated, and passionate teacher. Candidates must have a university degree and two years experience (ideally working with elementary students in Japan).

LOCATION: The school is located near Shirokane Takanawa station on the Mita and Namboku subway lines.

START DATE: April 1st, 2022.

COMPENSATION: The starting wage will be ¥272,500 per month. As this is a full-time position, enrollment in social insurance and pension is required.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS: TISG will screen resumes to check that minimum requirements are met. Candidates will be contacted to arrange face-to-face interviews at our Meguro HQ or Skype web-interviews for those who live outside Tokyo. Candidates will be asked to bring with them their residence cards, passports, copies of qualifications, and letters of reference. Following the first round of interviews candidates will be short-listed for a second round of interviews, which will include a trial lesson. Once that final decision has been made TISG will contact all candidates to inform them of the decision. The successful candidate will meet with TISG to sign employment documentation.

We look forward to receiving your application.
