”Learn English through play” is our concept at Kids Duo. Kids Duo is a school at which instructors not only teach the language, but also spend time together with the students in English. As a Kids Duo instructor, it is rewarding to see students improve their English, and also encouraging to see them mature with confidence. We welcome applicants who are friendly and enjoy being around kids, as well as applicants who wish to work in Japan using English.
【Prior teaching experience is not necessary】
Work experience is not required as well. A thorough training will be provided by the Kids Duo Headquarters. A skilled trainer will guide applicants through basic training and On-The-Job training to ensure applicants’ success in fulfilling their role. The role of the native instructor is to introduce the joy of learning English, and supporting personal growth through English education.
【Japanese language skills are not necessary】
Kids Duo is an all English school. Instructors will be supported by bilingual staffs, so not being able to understand Japanese will not be a problem. We are looking for instructors who wish to work in Japan using English, and who are eager to cooperate with the bilingual staffs and the school director to create a school that will enable kids to thrive.
