TEACH IN JAPAN
 
Searching for a personally rewarding English teaching job? Interested in experiencing Japanese culture first-hand? Excited by the chance to live and work in Tokyo? Graduates with computer teaching and/or coaching experience are encouraged to apply to International Education Services (IES), an established language training consultancy in Japan.
 
You will teach several types of English communication programs (management, computer services, order-made, as well as general business communication skills) to employees selected by our corporate clients in Japanese industry, as well as to officials from national government ministries and agencies. You will also conduct English language lessons as an Assistant Language Teacher for young learners in Japanese public primary and secondary schools.
 
You will be given extensive teacher training on arrival supplemented with regular feedback and counseling. In your adult classes, you will be trained to use a small group, communicative, English-only, coaching-based approach. For all classes, detailed training plans and in-house learning materials will be provided. Administrative assistance with class logistics will be provided by our bilingual Japanese course coordinators.
 
You will earn the Japanese Yen (JPY) equivalent of USD 30,000.00 annually. Compensation is paid monthly in JPY (income tax deductions will be about 5-7%; sales tax is 8%; automobile ownership unnecessary). You will be offered an annual, renewable contract which includes work-visa sponsorship, paid vacations, subsidized health insurance payments (Japan’s national plan covers 70% of medical/dental fees), contract fulfillment bonus, and travel expenses to/from teaching assignments. Your starting date is negotiable, with the biggest windows of opportunity during the months of March ~ June and August ~ October. You will also receive comprehensive assistance with your work-visa submission, hotel and other arrival arrangements, finding accommodation and other settling-in challenges.
 
Qualifications
 
A minimum requirement when submitting documentation for securing your work-visa approval is a BA/BS degree certificate from an accredited university and sponsorship by IES. A teaching qualification and/or TESOL/CELTA certification while advantageous is not mandatory, with equal consideration given to each candidate’s personality, educational background, and work experience. An assessment of any candidate’s English language proficiency may be required as part of the hiring process. IES hires directly and exclusively to fill vacancies within the company.
