A Full-time teaching position has opened to join our growing schools after our expansion early 2016. We currently have two English schools one located in Higashimikuni and the other in Shinosaka, both in walking distance from ShinOsaka JR in Osaka, Japan (good access to Shinkansen, JR trains and subways).

Our school has students of all ages from 2 upwards through to business men and retired, therefore the candidate needs to be comfortable around kids and adults. We are a medium to large, foreign owned family run school which provide a freer working environment with a real focus on communication between team members and providing a pleasant working atmosphere with weekly team meetings.
The school opens from Tuesday to Saturday and hours of when teachers are at school are from lunchtime to 9pm or 10pm, depending on schedule and other factors. There are times when teachers may be asked to teach morning lessons, this is shared and taken turns with others.

We require genuine life experience and a passion to teach and have fun teaching with professionalism first and foremost. We believe that if you have fun teaching, then the student does too.
