Job Description:

Keio Academy, a Japanese company based in Nakatsu-City, Oita Prefecture is seeking enthusiastic, English teachers to work full time beginning in mid to late March. We are looking for people with cheerful personalities who enjoy and are effective at teaching children.

Job Description: 
Teachers will teach English classes both within our English school and at schools and business in the local area. Teachers will have curriculum and teaching materials available but we hope that teachers will also bring in their own creativity with their activities, games, songs and lesson plans. You will have the opportunity to collaborate on lesson planning with 14 other foreign staff and also English speaking Japanese staff.

The hired teacher will work 5 days a week (Monday-Friday or Tuesday-Saturday depending on the position) for a total of 40 working hours per week. There is a maximum of 26.5 classroom-teaching hours and the remaining time is for office work, meetings, teacher training and lesson planning. This position also involves participating in and helping to plan the various yearly events our company holds (Christmas presentation, English summer camp, spring carnival, field trips and international parties).

The job is never boring and many of our teachers made lasting bonds with their students, co-workers and the local community.

​All of our positions involve some teaching of younger children but one of these positions will focus  primarily on secondary students, adults and business English.  If you are interested in this position you must have some experience teaching adults or certification such as CELTA and be comfortable with the idea of driving in Japan.

City Description: 
Nakatsu City is castle town in northern Kyushu. It has a population of about 80,000 people and a rich history. It is the childhood home of Yukichi Fukuzawa who is one of the founders of modern Japan (He is also on the 10,000yen bill). It is big enough to be convenient but small enough to retain its charm (and lower living costs). Home to many shrines, temples, teahouses and the yearly Gion festival that is a major attraction of the area. Nakatsu also boasts some very nice hiking trails, cycling paths and numerous hot springs. It is also very easy to get away for the weekend to a larger city like Kokura, Hakata or the hot springs resort town of Beppu. All of which are only a short distance away by train.

Company Description: 
Keio Academy was founded in 1984 and is one of the oldest English schools in Kyushu. It is a well known and respected institution in Nakatsu. There are now four Keio Academy schools in Japan and one in Taiwan. More information on the job and location can be found here

  • Training and enrichment seminars throughout the year 
  • 5 weeks of paid vacation (25 days plus the connected weekends) spread out throughout the year. 
  • Reimbursement for the cost of your airline ticket used to travel to Japan (up to 100,000yen).
