Rank of Job: Teacher
Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics

English Teacher

Full time. 18 month contract. Salary: 340,000 - 350,000 yen/month.
(340,000/mo for first six months, rising to 350,000/mo after that.)

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 or
presentations 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.
Approximately 10 weeks paid vacation over the 18 months at set times,
completion bonus, and orientation at half salary. Renewable contract.
Orientation starts September 9, 2003. Contract starts September 16.

mail with a) a resume, b) diploma(s), c) an essay (one page maximum
titled ''Why I Want to Live and Work in Japan''), and d) three letters
of reference (referees should be supervisors with first-hand knowledge
of applicant's teaching) to:
