We are currently recruiting CELTA/Trinity TESOL qualified teachers for positions in the Tokyo/Kanto region. Shane English Schools Japan are providing teaching opportunities in many locations throughout the greater Tokyo Area, including Nishi, Higashi, Yokohama, and Kanagawa among others. 

You will have lots of variety with a case-load of 50% adults and 50% younger learners. Don't worry if you don't have any experience with children or teenagers, as you will receive a 1 week TEYL course to complement your CELTA or Trinity TESOL. Children tend to learn in small group classes of up to 6, but the average is usually around 3 students. For our youngest learners, you will have have TA support. 

Your adults students could be studying for university, work or pleasure, and often favour 1-2-1 classes, but again, you will never teach a class or more than 6 students. 

Positions are available monthly. We recruit for our schools on a needs basis, so although we will take into account location requests, we cannot guarantee them. 

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