Nagoya school seeks creative, enthusiastic, and responsible candidates who enjoy teaching children and wish to improve their teaching skills by teaching with a veteran teacher and well-known teacher trainer.

BIG BOW English Lab, near Irinaka station in Nagoya, seeks a full-time teaching assistant position to begin on April 1, 2021 (one year renewable contract). This independent school has been in business since 2006 and is owned by a husband/wife team.

BIG BOW English Lab is an English school for young learners that has a unique CLIL-based curriculum and a strong focus on developing reading skills.

Each class is 90 minutes long; the first half of the class is a textbook lesson and reading activity and the second half is an original CLIL lesson, where students are taught about other subjects (history, science, geography, math, etc.) in English. There is an extensive reading library and over half the students are returnees, international pre-school graduates, or members of international families.

Each class has up to 12 students and is taught by an assistant teacher and the head teacher. The head teacher is Lesley Ito, an award-winning ELT materials writer who has over 25 years of experience teaching in Japan and has presented all over Japan for ELT publishing companies such as Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and National Geographic Learning. Candidates will work closely with Ms. Ito, and therefore have an opportunity to develop their skills as a teacher.

The school is located in Nagoya in a very nice residential area between the Irinaka and Yagoto subway stations, near Nanzan Girls’ School and has been in business since 1981.
