Industry: Academics

Company: LanguageBird, Inc.

This is a remote online position. Japanese Instructors residing in any country are invited to apply.

Who are we?

We are a premier, accredited online language school seeking Japanese Language instructors to teach high school and middle school Japanese courses online. Our students are typically between the ages of 12 and 18 years old and are mostly taking Japanese to fulfill their high school World Language requirement. We offer Middle School and High School Levels 1-6+ of Japanese, and conversational and test/prep courses.

Our curriculum is ACTFL-aligned, and we do not use a textbook to teach the language. Instead, we rely on ACTFL Can-Do Statements and real-world communication contexts to guide the lessons. Our syllabi are designed to accommodate a textbook-free context. We offer a Resource Library to guide instructors, but they are expected to create/use their own teaching materials. We follow Project-Based Learning and don’t assess using quizzes, tests, or exams.

If you are creative, familiar with online teaching, student-centered, and enjoy teaching Japanese as a World Language, you will fit right in!


  • Teach one-on-one online lessons using Microsoft Teams.
  • Assign and correct homework assignments and projects.
  • Track grades and students’ progress.
  • Focus on student engagement and student success.
  • Demonstrate genuine respect for all students.


  • 1-2+ years of experience teaching Japanese (online and/or in a school setting).
  • Native-like language proficiency.
  • A Bachelor’s Degree.
  • Familiarity with technology and Microsoft Office.
  • Strong work ethic and interpersonal skills.
  • US time zone (PST) with evening availability preferred.

*Be sure your submitted resume is in English. Applications without the required video will not be considered.
