JOB DETAILS

Japan is a special place for the Shane English School brand. It’s where it all began back in 1977.  What was once a man named Shane Lipscombe giving lessons at his kitchen table, quickly grew to over 200 Shane English Schools in Japan alone. And now, today, there are Shane English Schools spread across 13 other countries across the globe.

In Japan, the majority of the schools are located in the Kanto region, which is essentially the Greater Tokyo/Yokohama metropolitan area. Schools are typically small, with two, three or four classrooms. Very few have more than five classrooms while some even have just one.

Shane English Schools Japan has a large portion of adult students who tend to fall into the pre-intermediate category. However, about half the students are children so teachers will need to be prepared to teach young learners.

Teachers may also teach at a few different locations in a week, which does add some variety, and travel costs will be paid by the school. But it is seldom that a teacher will be assigned to only one location.
