Job Description

Unitas Foreign Language Academy is an affiliate of Teikyo University and has a history of English and Japanese language learning services of 53 years. We are the premier English conversation school in Yamanashi prefecture. We are uniquely situated in that we share our business location with a leading Japanese language school and have a large number of young international students attending the school.

Unitas' main office and branches are located in Kofu city and the surrounding basin, with a main satellite branch in Fujiyoshida and 5 other branches throughout the prefecture, as well as a university integrated branch in Hachioji. We are a smaller prefecture with an abundance of natural areas and mountainous facades. If you enjoy smaller city life then Kofu would be a great fit for you. We are 1.5 hours by train from Tokyo so big city needs can be easily filled.

We are currently looking for professional teachers for our conversation classes. We would be very glad to hear from teachers who would like to make a difference in their students’ lives through language learning as well as through sharing their culture. As the world changes with new technologies, we would like to grow and adapt along with it to keep offering our students opportunities to enhance their futures. If you would like to join us in this challenge then address your cover letter to ‘Aidan Walsh’ specifically. I am looking forward to meeting you and talking about what we do here. See below for some details.
