†Native English-speaking Teacher Needed in Gifu, Japan

Posted By: Excel Academy <>
Date: Friday, 20 December 2013, at 4:05 p.m.

We are currently looking for a native English speaker who holds a college degree and a valid driverís license. There is one full-time position available which possibly could be adjusted to part-time if necessary. For this particular position we prefer someone who has some teaching experience and can speak some basic Japanese and who has lived or is currently living in Japan.

We are offering a very good position teaching mostly young Japanese children from 4 years to 12 years of age. Although we teach to all ages, more than half of our classes are given to children including some classes inside various kindergartens in the green mountainous prefecture of Gifu.

We are a family-owned school and we have pride in treating our employees honestly and fairly while offering some of the best teaching conditions in the business. We understand the importance of building and maintaining trust with our customers and employees and we will go out of our way to ensure a congenial and productive working environment.

We treat our teachers very well, with long paid vacations and occasional raises or bonuses, all of which many schools do not offer. In return we expect our teachers to be responsible, caring, and positive. Another very important prerequisite is that YOU HAVE FUN and enjoy teaching as the energy of the classroom affects the studentsí enthusiasm to learn.

We are confident in our teaching and management philosophy. We are also certain after checking what other English schools have to offer, that any interested and qualified teacher would be happy working with us. If you have any doubts you are more than welcome to speak to one or more of our other teachers. We could give you their email addresses upon request.

After being in the English teaching business for over 20 years we prefer teachers who are able to laugh at themselves while interacting with the children. We encourage our teachers to teach in a playful and creative way as our teaching philosophy is to instruct young students whenever possible through games, songs, puppets and other somewhat unorthodox ways. Because of the nature of our teaching methods the teacher must also be a performer at times so please consider this as a requirement for enjoying your work with us.

Here is what we are offering:

We will provide you with a 1-5 year working visa sponsorship and paid on-the-job training with full bilingual support both in and out of the office. We are also happy to help you with any need you may have adjusting to the Japanese culture or language even if they reach beyond the scope of your work responsibilities with us.

We will also supply a fully furnished house in a quiet area, in Seki City, Gifu Prefecture. Rent is approximately 55,000-60,000 yen payable monthly by the employee and there are no expensive deposits necessary. Assistance with obtaining satellite TV, fiber optic internet access and cell phone service is also available if desired. We also aid in providing a company car for both school and personal use as driving is necessary for the full-time position.

The starting salary is from 3,000,000 yen a year and may be negotiable depending on the teachersí qualifications and prior work experience. Also bonuses or raises for satisfactory work are part of our employee policy.

There will be approximately 20 through 27 class hours to teach each week. Most of the classes are 50 minutes long. There is also more than sufficient paid holiday time including 4 weeks in summer and about 2 weeks both in winter and spring. All Japanese national holidays are paid holidays as well. During this time you're free to travel throughout Japan or wherever you wish.

We prefer a minimum of a year contract to start and because we will be training and investing in you, we would like you to consider staying beyond the contract term if you so wish. The starting dates are either from the beginning of March or April, 2014 and are somewhat flexible.

Please send your resume with a recent photo of yourself and a brief cover letter explaining your interest in teaching in Japan to the following email address:

We look forward to hearing from you!

The staff at Excel English Academy
