flag of japan Full-Time TEFL Position in Kanazawa, Japan

Lesson4u is a privately-owned school in Kanazawa, Japan, currently with three schools in the local area. We teach everyone from age three and up. We are looking for EFL teachers who genuinely enjoy people, and who are really good at what they do. We’re local born-and-bred, and care for and enjoy our students and our area more than can be explained here. The candidate we’re looking for is able to engage and jump around with kids, and then walk into class with a researcher without missing a beat. They are fun to talk to, knowledgeable, have a good understanding and interest in English linguistically, and are good on their feet. We’re looking for someone who can be both a resource and a friend to our students - as well as a resource and a helping hand to the team.

Attitude and potential for teaching are considered top priority, while experience is secondary. We are most interested in EFL teachers who understand the long and difficult road to language proficiency, and who have the patience, knowledge and ability to help our students grow authentically in English. Especially as we enter the high school/college proficiency test-prep world, we are looking for teachers who know how to prepare students for a test without teaching them "only the test". We encourage teachers who are knowledgeable on current English proficiency exams and/or curriculum-building experience to apply.
