Do you love spending time with kids? Do you feel that kids respond better to exciting, energetic activities and lessons? At TISG, we believe that kids will learn most effectively in an environment that is fun and active, so these are our foremost goals when teaching our students. If you love bringing smiles to children's faces, and making them laugh with your silliness and jokes, then this may be the right position for you.

IDEAL CANDIDATE: We are looking for a confident, dedicated, and energetic teacher to fill an EFL position at kindergartens around the Western Tokyo and Saitama area. Candidates must have a university degree and two years experience working with children, and be passionate, energetic and hard working.

POSITION DETAILS: The position is a Monday to Friday, approximately 9am to 5pm schedule and involves going to a set weekly schedule of kindergartens to teach English classes to groups of twenty to thirty children aged between 3 and 6 years of age in the morning, and classes of up to fifteen students aged between 3 and 11 years of age (classes are divided by age group) in the afternoon. The maximum teaching time per day is set at 5 hours (this equates to two hours of teaching in the morning and no more than four 45 minute classes in the afternoon).

LOCATION: The kindergartens on this schedule are located near, or accessed from the follow stations: Hanakoganei, Seibuen, Kunitachi, Kodaira, Shin-Tokorozawa, Higashiyamatoshi, and Musashifujisawa. This schedule would be ideal for someone living in the Kodaira area, or along the Seibu-Shinjuku line. We are only looking to interview candidates who already live within comfortable commuting distances, or those who are willing to relocate.

START DATE: The start date for this position is as soon as the right candidate is available.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS: resumes will be screened to check that minimum requirements are met. Candidates will be contacted to arrange face-to-face interviews for teachers who are able to come to our Meguro HQ, or Skype web-interviews for those who can’t. Candidates will be asked to bring with them their residence card, 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 be conducted by Skype or in person. A final decision will be made and the successful candidate will start as soon as they are able to.

We look forward to receiving your application.
