Saiei International adopts a unique and innovative method where Japanese teachers and Foreign teachers work together to maximize student's comprehension and participation. We believe that the students should do more than 80% of the talking and the teacher should serve as a coach, facilitating conversation as per our Mission Statement. To meet this goal, the company provides the teachers with extensive training opportunities, including 2-week initial training, monthly workshops, lesson quality video checks and the annual teaching contest. We are now recruiting dedicated and professional English Instructors, who love children and also are good at working in a team. We see our foreign staff as part of our team, not as a guest. Saiei International offers you an extensive training and continued support, wishing all its employees, Japanese or non-Japanese, enjoy their teaching experience and grow both professionally and personally in a dynamic working environment.
