    Teach English with Shane English School Japan
    Location In and around the Tokyo area, Japan
    Deadline Monday 10. November 2014
    Experience No experience required
    Teaching English in Japan requires enthusiasm, energy, patience and flexibility. It involves working with all ages from pre-schoolers to adults.

    Typically teachers work from midday until the evening, teaching the younger learners after lunch and adults later on. You could feasibly work with most levels and age groups in any one day – there’s great variety!

    With mornings free there’s plenty of time for getting out and about, pursuing hobbies and, of course, preparing for the day’s classes. Meeting up with other teachers for dinner after work is a popular way to unwind after a busy day.

    The Schools

    The schools are mostly situated in and around the greater Tokyo area, although in recent years schools have also been opened in prime central Tokyo locations (such as Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ginza and Meguro). Most Shane English Schools are directly owned by the company, however, around one quarter are franchises.

    All schools are very much part of the local neighbourhood, providing a friendly, professional service to many kinds of students. Each year more than 40,000 people study at Shane schools Japan (with many more studying with Shane teachers on outside contracts in companies, kindergartens, high schools etc.) following a variety of courses. SESJ places great emphasis on providing a good quality, good value, caring service to its students and as a result a high proportion of these students join through word of mouth recommendations and/or as a result of observing or participating in classes on a trial or demonstration basis.

    Many teachers who work for SESJ are British, and British, not American English, is taught in the schools, though not necessarily in the case of in-company training. As very much the 'British English' school, SES also introduces and exposes its students to aspects of British culture both through themes and topics in the syllabus and through social events organised for students.

    The Teaching

    Around 50% of our students are children and 50% adults, although this can vary considerably from school to school. The maximum class size in Shane schools is 8, the average is 5.

    Children are grouped according to age and level. Adult students are grouped by ability from complete beginners to advanced.

    Teachers can spend much of their time teaching small groups and 1:1 private classes. A standard group lesson is 50 minutes in length and meets once a week. Many adult students opt to take private one-to-one lessons of varied frequency and duration, sometimes in addition to their group lesson.

    Teachers usually work at one particular location on any given day, but at different schools on different days of the week. (For example, a teacher might teach at School A every Monday and Friday, School B every Tuesday, School C every Wednesday and Saturday.) It is quite possible to teach at a different school each day of the week, but it is more typical to teach regularly at two or three schools only.Teachers are usually given a regular schedule of five working days per week.

    Teachers are, of course, given support and guidance on all aspects of their lessons by their Director of Studies and Assistant DoS.

    All successful candidates will be invited for an interview at our London office.

    • Candidates MUST be CELTA or Trinity TESOL qualified
    • Native level of English
    • A graduate (with a full university degree)
