  • Description
    FRIENDS is a small English school that offers quality education in a homey and caring environment. For over 2 decades, Friends has been dedicated to the vision of nurturing our students, from our very young learners to adults, to help them develop a strong academic background, a global outlook, and one who will thrive on independent thinking coupled with a kind, caring heart. We are looking for that special educator who relishes the challenge and satisfaction of doing just that! The position of English Teacher at FRIENDS requires a hardworking and dedicated individual with meticulous organization and communication skills and a passion for teaching and interacting with children while helping to run a small school. The position allows you the opportunity for an up-close, in-depth look at the lives of your students as well as life in Japan in general.

    FRIENDS is located in Morioka, the capital of Iwate Prefecture. A city of approximately 350,000 located in central Iwate, Morioka is flanked by mountain ranges to the east and the west with easy access to other major cities located to the north and south. Morioka is only a 2.5 ~ 3-hour ride south by superexpress train to Tokyo. The nearest ski resort is a 40-minute drive while the nearest coast is an hour and a half to the east. Morioka has all the conveniences of a modern city with warmth and coziness in addition to the history and character of a smaller town minus the concrete jungle. Set amongst the beauty of nature, it is perfect for healthy, outdoor living. Morioka does offer you the best of both worlds!

    FRIENDS seeks Teachers who are selfless and have a strong commitment to their job, employers, colleagues, and the students they teach. The positions are perfect for those who can work independently with little supervision while also being team players. Teachers who have a strong, proven work ethic, and a passion for teaching children, and those who are mature, loyal, kind, honest, and teachable will find our school environment suitable. The city is a wonderful place for those who are just as happy spending time on their own as in the company of others.
