New Teacher Training
All new teachers participate in a comprehensive 2-week paid training session to learn our curriculum and to develop teaching skills that are used in our classrooms.
After training, teachers move to their placement locations and begin teaching at their classrooms. Teachers who require company accommodations are assigned to a semi-furnished, single occupancy, company apartment.
Teachers are scheduled to teach at 4 different classrooms each month, spending 1-week at each classroom. Teachers commute to the classrooms by public transportation. Lessons usually start in the afternoons and evenings from around 3:45pm or 5:00pm, and finish as late as 9:45pm. Teachers are usually scheduled to teach 3 to 4 lessons per day.
Students, Classrooms, and Lessons
We teach children exclusively! Most of our students are between the ages of 2 to 13 years old. The average class size is about 6 or 7 students. Each student attends a 1-hour lesson a week. Each month, three of their lessons are taught by a Japanese teacher, and the fourth lesson is taught by a Native English teacher.
Our teachers work independently at each classroom location, and they are responsible for conducting the lessons and for the welfare of the students. Bilingual support from our Head Office is available if needed.
Our focus is English communication and internationalism. We are very proud of our lessons. Our curriculum team is dedicated to developing effective lessons plans and materials, and our classrooms are well-stocked with a variety of teaching materials. Our lessons are fun and interactive, and we incorporate singing, dancing, and various activities to reinforce our lesson objectives.
