The Lesson Partner will guide and teach members through English conversation how to effectively communicate in English for such situations as traveling abroad, working in international environments, and/or for helping members reach personal goals.

From time to time Lesson Partners are expected to contribute to work functions such as writing blogs and participating in company events for members.

You will enjoy working one-on-one in a relaxed, upscale, and friendly environment. Although we have developed our own line of text books, our school doesn’t strictly dictate your teaching style and allows you to really get into what it means to speak English with our members.

“b” Watashino Eikaiwa also respects the fact that many of our lesson partners are from other countries and works with you when you have needs that arise from overseas. Furthermore, we value the background specializations from past institutions & look for opportunities for lesson partners to utilize those skills in our business where applicable as well.

Not only that but, we gladly offer visa sponsorship to those who meet the qualifications for such. While experience is important, we are more interested in individuals with exceptional people skills, a strong work ethic, and a passion for teaching.
