Our goal is to be the best company to work for in the language school industry. Our employees play a key role in all our successes so we are committed to hiring, retaining, and developing the best people for our team. Our training and career development programs are open to all. We hope to support all members of our team as they endeavor to grow professionally and develop their skills in and beyond the classroom.
We especially encourage everyone to attend our monthly training days as it is also a great chance to get to know the team.
Before beginning to teach, all instructors are required to complete Onboarding, which includes a company orientation and intensive teacher training. Our experienced trainers will guide you through everything you need to know to step into your first lesson confident and ready.
We believe that continuing to learn is the key to self-improvement so training does not stop in the early stages. We hold training days once a month and all instructors are invited to attend workshops with various themes related to developing your skills as a teacher.
Periodically, the instructor and their line manager meet for a performance evaluation meeting. Beyond evaluating performance against standards, we hope to better provide support in any area our instructors may need by understanding their individual strengths, challenges, personal goals, and career goals.
Our organization is growing so there are more and more opportunities for employees to get involved in different areas of the business. Some of these areas include: scheduling, training, IT, quality control, curriculum development, HR, and more. We encourage employees to inquire about joining a team if they are looking to contribute the skills that they have or are interested in expanding their skill set.
The company launched its Management Training Program (MTP) over 10 years ago with the goal of developing future managers with strong teaching and business skills. Many MTP graduates have gone on to take full-time leadership roles at RSLC and they continue to change the design and add value to our business. This 8-month program culminates in a capstone retreat filled with workshops, presentations, and lots of fun recreational activities.
For us, leadership is very much about taking responsibility for creating a better business while continuing to inspire and motivate people. Get to know some our leaders at the helm:
Dean graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a major in Japanese Language and a focus in International Business.

Before JDA he worked for eight years in finance at a private money management firm in California, laying down the foundation for his successful entrepreneurial career. His words to live by are “In a minute I can change my attitude, and in that minute I can change my entire day and that of others I interact with.”

Billy graduated with a Master of Science in Game and Media Technology from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. He worked in website/game design and development after graduation, but gradually switched focus to language teaching as it enabled him to work in different countries. He joined RSLC as part-time instructor in 2015 and was offered the role of assistant branch manager the following year. Currently, he supervises operations, HR, service development and IT teams. One quote he lives by is “In truth, whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well; and nothing can be done well without attention.”
