Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
The Immersion English teacher will teach a kindergarten class of up to 16 children in a completely English environment. Outside of a 40 minute Japanese class, the children are immersed in English. The children learn through songs, chants, short poems, memory work, games, stories and some phonics and writing. Our curriculum is cutting edge and one of a kind. There is an interpreter available to assist the English teacher as needed. Due to the language barrier, the English teacher must be very sensitive to the needs of his/her students, and must be creative in communicating with them. Requirements: A four year degree in Elementary or Early Childhood Education is a must. A TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certification is preferred, but is not necessary. It is also helpful to have a basic knowledge of Japanese.

A four year degree in any field.
