Job Description

Do you want to be part of something special, in one of the world’s most exciting and advanced locations? Want to experience a different culture and lifestyle? Come work with us as a Language Instructor at Nova Japan!

Our Instructors:

Every instructor completes a comprehensive training program before they start teaching for NOVA. The program equips them with everything they need to be able to teach high-quality lessons and provide excellent customer service. All NOVA instructors are committed to meeting and exceeding student expectations and supporting student progress toward the achievement of their goals.


  • Selecting, planning, and conducting lessons for kids and adults
  • Monitoring student performance and reporting on student progress
  • Performing demonstration lessons and level assessments for new or potential students
  • Promoting available products and services
  • Maintaining a clean, comfortable, and welcoming environment


Contracts may be offered for any number of lessons a week, up to 40, visa status permitting. For an instructor contracted to teach 37 lessons a week, a typical schedule will consist of four 8-lesson (including a meal break) shifts and one 5-lesson (no meal break) shift. The shift times and schedules that we can offer are dictated by customer demand. Demand peaks on weekends and weekday evenings. Although larger branches also offer lessons in the mornings on weekdays, most branches offer lessons from around midday during the week, with shift start and finish times typically falling somewhere between 12:30 pm and 9:30 pm. On weekends and national holidays, demand is higher earlier in the day, and as a result, shifts typically start and finish somewhere between 10:00 am and 6:30 pm.
