NPO Zenrinkan, one of the older English conversation schools in Morioka is in need of a new teacher from June/July! It’s a great place to work, and well established, having been around for 60 years. You get a lot of control over your classes, and classes are fairly small, around 4 students on average.

The salary starts at 250,000 yen per month, and then deductions are taken out for taxes and national health insurance. You get 2 weeks of paid vacation per year, and can take it nearly any time, although they do encourage you to take it during breaks from classes. Zenrinkan will also sponsor any new hire that needs a visa. The typical week is 38 hours of office time, which includes 22 class hours. Those classes are about 1/2 kids classes, and 1/2 adult conversation classes, with a couple college classes and yochien lessons included a few times a month.

If you are interested, please feel free to e-mail a cover letter and resume to Nobuko Sano at or to Alicia Ferong at
