To start as soon as possible, we are looking for happy and energetic teachers to join our team of teachers, and to teach English play time to our preschoolers.

Please submit an up-to-date resume with a business-style portrait photo and a letter of introduction no longer than 1 page in length. Your letter should introduce yourself, talents that you will bring to our school, and why you wish to work as a teacher. We will only contact those whom we are considering inviting for an interview.

This is a Japanese pre-school and most of the teachers that work here are Japanese, but the supervisor of foreign staff is a native English speaker. All positions help with the school events, and after-hours language classes for pre-school to adults. All positions may be required to help each other to some extent, especially in regards to covering leave.

The interview will be conducted one-on-one onsite at the school. You may be asked to give a demonstration lesson, or submit a lesson plan that you have been asked to prepare ahead of time.

During the morning you will teach between 1 and 3 classes using games, songs, flashcards, and so-on. Then you will help the teacher in the classroom until lunch time: we want the children to get to know you and have a more global outlook as they grow up.

In the afternoon you will teach another 1 to 3 classes in our after school program which has classes of preschool to mature adult.

Curriculum is set by the school but you will be encouraged to teach in a way that best suits your strengths and personality as well as to develop original lesson ideas and plans. You will be given time to prepare for your lessons, as well as support in developing or acquiring materials.

Work Week:Between Monday and Saturday, you will have Sunday and one other day off. (Sunday and Monday, or Saturday and Sunday). Attendance for school events is required.

Holidays: 1 week in summer, 1 week in winter, 10 paid holidays per year. An additional 5 paid holidays are granted in to allow you visit your home country.

Salary starts at 3.1 million a year. Monthly commute of up to 20,000. Government Pension, Health Care, and Residential Taxes paid through salary.

Furnished apartment available (35,000 per month) walking distance to school, and 5 minutes to Musashiyamato Station.

Our school is accessible by bus from Higayshiyamatoshi and Higashimurayama stations, or walk from Kamikitadai and Musashiyamato Stations.
