※English: Native level
※Desire and ability to work with young children
※BA/BS Degree from an university
※Valid Visa to stay in Japan (You have to be in Japan now.)

No prior professional teaching experience is required, but any experience working with children is a huge bonus. Most of our students are children between the ages of 4-14, so any prior experience will be beneficial to your performance.

The most important qualification is a positive attitude and willingness to learn. We can train you in teaching techniques but we can’t train you to be cheerful, warm and patient with students. You must be outgoing and passionate during class in order to expect the same from your students!
