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, Minami Azabu, Komazawa, Toritsudai, and Gakugeidai model school campuses in Tokyo.

TISAS is an afterschool program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 3 days per week) for non-native English-speaking children. Students attend classes from 2 pm until 7 pm (the students arrive anytime between 2 pm and 4 pm). The first 2-hour block is called See, Hear and Wonder Time and is a guided play and homework time. Between 4 pm and 7 pm, we have 5 focused study blocks: Circle Time, Kinesthetic, Story Telling, Language Strategies, and Course Time. The Course Time is different each day: Monday is Our World, Tuesday is Art, Wednesday is Makers, Thursday is Living Planet, and Friday is Kids Force. Classes are separated by age group and the maximum number of students per class is 16.

We are currently looking to interview teachers for prospective new positions for the 2022 school year.

POSITION DETAILS: The workweek is Monday to Friday at our Naka Meguro, Minami Azabu, and Gakugeidai campuses, and Tuesday to Saturday at our Toritsudai and Komazawa campuses. For Monday to Friday positions, paid vacation days are every Saturday and Sunday. For Tuesday to Saturday positions, paid vacations are every Sunday and Monday. Other holidays include public holidays, one week during summer, two weeks in winter, and five days of flexible paid leave. The daily work schedule is roughly 11:30 am to 19:30pm (the exact times vary from campus to campus), but 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 of experience (ideally working with elementary students in Japan).

START DATE: April 1st, 2022.

TRAINING: Initial training will take place at the beginning of April. During the year there are 4 compulsory Sunday training days (currently scheduled for the end of April, May, August, and November).

COMPENSATION: The first-year wage rate is ¥272,500 per month. The wage rate for subsequent contracts is based on performance evaluation with a maximum of ¥295,000 available. As this is a full-time position, teachers are enrolled in Social Insurance and Pension.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS: Since we are looking for teachers for prospective positions, we will only be doing first-round interviews via Skype. At the completion of interviews, we will create a shortlist of candidates for second-round interviews. Second-round interviews will include a trial lesson and will take place at one of our model school campuses. At the completion of second-round interviews, a decision will be made and the successful candidate will be sent a sample contract to read through before a forward offer of employment is made.

We look forward to receiving your application.
