		English Teacher

Full time. Salary: 350,000 yen/month.

Position for teachers who enjoy working with a variety of students in
an array of programs, want to participate in a school on the
institutional level, are highly organized with short/long-term time
management skills, like being part of a team, are keen to be active in
professional development, and are flexible.

Responsibilities include 82+ contact hours/month, and other various
administrative duties. Write curriculum, develop materials for, and
teach EFL to community course students of all levels from young
children to adults. Also teach concurrent residential immersion
programs for high school students (large groups) and business
professionals (small groups); prepare and conduct classes during a
one-week summer workshop for teachers of English; and plan and
participate in extracurricular activities.

University degree (MA preferred) and two years teaching both adults
and children required. Demonstrated interest in teaching children is
important because half of the regular teaching hours are dedicated to
children's classes. Excellent writing skills are also necessary.
Because of the demanding nature of the position, teachers for whom
learning Japanese or engaging in cultural pursuits is a main priority
are discouraged from applying. Sponsorship is available. Seven weeks
paid vacation at set times, completion bonus, paid orientation (at
half salary). Renewable contract. Starting date: March 2003.
