Teaching English training
Prefer 2 month minimum stay
Please only if you have lots of personality, fit and love children.
This is an English school for children and some adults , so we need happy happy people with good personal hygiene.
Hi! Our names are John and Miyuki.
We have 2 small English schools and need help with some classes and cleaning the house .
We will train you and expect you to teach English to children and some adults.
This training is useful when applying for other teaching jobs as well as giving you confidence in teaching.
We will also write you a letter of recommendation if you like.
We work 5 days a week and about 3 hrs a day on average.
Some days are shorter, some longer.
Due to training a 2 month minimum stay .
In return we will supply a house which all volunteers share .
The house is old and is 10 mins walk to the beach.
The kitchen is fully equipped for you to cook your own meals. The house is to be kept clean , so everyone must pull their weight when it comes to cleaning.
FOOD IS NOT SUPPLIED !!!!!!!
We also have surfboards and other sporting equipment that you are free to use .
We go snowboarding and you are welcome to join us at your own expense we do find excellent bargains on tickets and accommodation up in the snow , so it is cheap and well recommended..
In summer we head off camping and swimming in rivers also the occasional music festival, if that`s your thing you are welcome to join us.
If you want to come to Japan and are into getting out and seeing it there are plenty of opportunities here to do so, please don`t come here and sit in your room on the net all night, I would like you to look fresh for classes , Not sleepy and unprepared for the day.
Getting to the school from the house.
We supply bicycles to ride to the schools which are about 15 minutes away or catch a bus at when it is raining , which we will reimburse you for .
Many times I will be able to pick you up and drop you off but not always .
And honestly , if you are not interested in learning some teaching skills or do not enjoy children , then this is not for you.
People who can play an instrument are more than welcome.
We love music.
We are pretty chilled but work hard , so if you are willing to give a little we can assure you of a really great experience here in Japan.
