Job Description

Are you generous with your energy?  Are you encouraging?  Do you believe that entertaining in education is effective?  Can you read people and a classroom atmosphere?  Are you able to follow a curriculum flow plan, but improvise to improve the lesson?  Do you get excited about seeing students develop?
If you answered “Yes” to all of these, you will be happy on Eigo Day’s team.  Eigo Day sets you up to succeed with tested lesson plans.  97% of our students are children aged 3 to 14.  Our students’ progress is obvious.
An Eigo Day teacher is expected to prepare lessons for maximum effectiveness.  Focusing heavily on the skills a native teacher can provide, your lessons will revolve around conversational interaction along with pronunciation and phonics.  Energetic songs and inspiring games and activities are part of the lessons you will deliver 3-6 times per day.
Eigo Day is flagship school of “The Bee”, a Spelling Bee program now run by a non-profit organization.  Through innovative teaching techniques like this, Eigo Day added two schools over the last two years.  Be part of the continued success!


Eigo Day offers a competitive salary package starting in the 230,000-270,000 yen range.  Salary is dependent upon experience, qualifications, etc.  The accepted applicant should expect the high end within one year as long as you perform at a high level.
You will be trained extensively as we hope that you will be with us for multiple years.
As we expand, your career can advance into your areas of expertise as well.  With three locations, you’ll participate in the expansion of our schools.
Our school calendar has 43 school weeks, leaving plenty of free time.
Eigo Day, Inc offers standard company health insurance and retirement plans as well.  Visa sponsorship is also available.

Job Requirements

-Immediate August start
-Eigo Day’s salespoint to our students is native English teaching.  So, we must be very strict on this point.  Many of our students have lived in or will live abroad where English is the native language.  While we appreciate interest from all nationalities with ambitions to teach English, please understand that Eigo Day is catering to a more specific market.  All applicants who cannot produce a North American (or British/Australian) accent should be very hesitant to apply to this position.
-Japanese ability is not necessary, but is preferable.
-Current residents of Japan as well as overseas applicants are encouraged to apply.
-ESL education/licenses aren’t necessary, but are preferable
-Most of all, you must work well with children and know (or be very willing to learn) how to deliver lessons that will reach them on their levels
-Work hours fall between 1pm to 9:30pm

Job Location

Eigo Day’s headquarters is in Kariya, 25 minutes from Nagoya, Aichi.  Kariya is next to Toyota City.  So, it is the headquarters of many major car parts manufacturers (Denso, Aishin, Toyota Shatai, etc) that especially serve Toyota Motor Company.  Kariya also serves as a “bed town” for Toyota City.  The Kariya city government has created a very family friendly atmosphere.
Around 20 minutes from Kariya, our second school is in Anjo.  Anjo is much like Kariya with a little “countryside” feel.  Still more car parts manufacturers are based in Anjo, making English very important here as well.  Our franchise school, open two days a week (3 days from April), is in Nagoya.  Nagoya is the 4th largest city in Japan.  Nagoya provides the full urban experience with a bit of a laid-back feel.
