Teach English in Tokyo


Hello Japan lovers!


Teach English to adults and children in Tokyo and have the adventure of a lifetime! While you discover the exotic culture, learn Japanese and live a lifestyle you never could before!


Whether you want to relax in a maid cafe, explore the natural wonders or binge on seafood, Japan has so much to do that you can’t do it all in one year.


Job Description


A large portion of the adult students fall in the pre-intermediate category. About half the students are children. Travel costs will be paid by the school.


Teachers may also teach at a few different locations in a week, which adds some variety, and travel costs will be paid by the school.


The majority of the schools are located in the Kanto region, which is essentially the Greater Tokyo/Yokohama metropolitan area. Schools are typically small, with two, three or four classrooms. Few schools have more than five classrooms, while some even have just one.


Job Requirements


  • A passport from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, or South Africa.
  • A bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • A CELTA/DELTA or a recognized 120-hour TEFL certificate with at least 6 months of teaching experience.
  • You are open-minded, enthusiastic and positive.


Salary and Benefits


  • 245,000+ yen ($2350) per month depending on experience and qualifications.
  • 20 days holiday.
  • Sponsored visa for full-time teachers.
  • 12 month contract.
  • 5 days a week with two consecutive weekdays off.
  • 29 teaching hours per week.
  • Workdays are roughly 12-9 PM with no more than 6.5 hours of actual teaching per day.
  • Any time outside of teaching and preparation is break time.


Comprehensive training is provided by the school, which is ideal if this is your first English teaching job. New teachers get support and guidance from the Director of Studies, who is a native English speaker. All teaching materials and the curriculum are provided by the school.
