Native English-speaking Teachers or Couple Needed in Gifu, Japan

Posted By: Excel Academy <b.equanimous@gmail.com>
Date: Wednesday, 15 January 2014, at 11:51 a.m.

We are currently looking for native English speakers who hold a college degree and a valid driverís license. Couples are welcome to apply as there may be several positions available. It's not mandatory but we prefer someone who has some teaching experience and can speak some basic Japanese. It would also be helpful if you live, have lived in or at least have visited Japan before.

We are offering very good positions 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 that prides itself on treating our employees honestly and fairly and 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 teaching children. We encourage our teachers to teach in a playful and creative way as our teaching philosophy is to teach 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 1-3 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 apartment or house in a quiet area, in Gifu Prefecture. Rent is approximately 48,000~60,000 yen payable monthly by the employee and there are no expensive deposits necessary. Satellite TV, fiber optic internet access and cell phone service is also available if desired. We also offer a company car for both school and personal use as driving is necessary for full-time positions.

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. As of now the coupleís position would include one full-time and one part-time salaried position. The part-time salaried position would start at a minimum of 2,160,000 a year and increase proportionately with any increase in class hours taught.

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 year or longer contract to start. Also 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
