We’re always looking for great educators. That means people whose main motivation is not simply a paycheck or an easy work visa for their brief stint in Japan. We’re a young, vibrant school with an awesome team and lots of passion. So if you’re a progressive educator who cares about your craft and wants to convey that passion to others (especially the students), then we’re looking for you.


Applicants should be someone who:

  • believes that education is not a spectator sport, but an experience that should be relevant, meaningful, and memorable
  • reads sources, inside and outside of your area of expertise, in order to expand your knowledge as much as possible
  • has an open mind, and is willing to adapt to a potentially different work environment (and way of doing things)
  • demonstrates a passion for Japan and its culture, and is willing to be a responsible ambassador for your country and our school
  • is interested in the psychology of learning, child psychology, second language acquisition, philosophy, and/or other related domains
  • loves interacting with children and teenagers, but is also willing to apply discipline consistent with the school’s approach
  • can not only motivate students to learn, but teach them how to learn
  • understands that the daily operation of a school is hard work, and is willing to put in the extra time and effort to help out beyond simply planning and teaching lessons
  • has a certified teaching degree or a master’s degree in the subject of instruction
  • has obtained a valid criminal background check from passport issuing country and (if different from passport issuing country) current country of residence
