Your growth is our growth!
Rosetta Stone Learning Center is an industry leader in employee satisfaction.
In addition to the Rosetta Stone Learning Center brand, we also run the Hummingbird brand and are currently seeking full-time pronunciation teachers to join our Hummingbird team teaching both online and branch-based lessons.
Hummingbird is a method of pronunciation developed in the US to help Japanese people learn natural American pronunciation. Our method has been used for employee education by the Marine Corps and the Immigration Bureau, as well as as by educational institutions, companies and government agencies all over the world.
We have over 20 years of history and over 10,000 graduates who are now active in various countries including the USA and Japan.
We have schools in the Kanto area (Shinjuku, Ginza, and Ikebukuro), as well as in Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto and Sannomiya), and offer online lessons to students who do not live in these areas.
At Rosetta Stone Learning Center and Hummingbird we believe that the best customer service comes from having employees who are happy and well motivated in their jobs. Our focus on employee development enables motivated and dedicated instructors to not only excel in the classroom, but also have the opportunity to further develop their careers in the fields of curriculum development, operations management, training, quality control, HR, and IT.
Finally, as part of the Link and Motivation group of companies (ranked one of the top companies to work for in Japan: https://www.vorkers.com/award/), we believe that motivation is key to the success of students. We have a teaching and support system that emphasizes this, and our instructors and facilitators have the opportunity to play a leading role as “motivation engineers”. Apart from developing advanced teaching skills, you will also be gaining expertise that will be easily-transferable to any career path you decide to take in the future.
