STEP 1 – LESSON OFFER
When we have students in your area we will send you details for a free trial lesson which is paid if they join.
STEP 2 – CONFIRMATION
If you are available to teach the student, please respond to that email ASAP.
STEP 3 – FREE TRIAL LESSON
We will then contact you with further details about the trial lesson (day / time / location / lesson plan etc.), and meet / skype to explain what to do.
STEP 4 – STUDENT JOINS
If the student joins they become your student and you can arrange the schedule accordingly.
STEP 5 – LESSON REPORT
At the end of the month we will ask you to send in your lesson reports for your students.
STEP 6 – PAYMENT
We pay teachers on the 10th of every month via bank deposit for the previous months work (we will ask for your bank details).
Using this stable system we can offer many students to good teachers.
Experience is not necessary although it will help.
Responding fast to offers with a clear date/time you can teach will help us introduce you as the teacher.
On the 10th of each month we pay teachers for how many lessons they have taught.
This information will be part of your monthly report.
This means you will always have regular payment even if the student cancels suddenly
We can only pay into Japanese Bank accounts in the teachers name.
On your first monthly teaching report please enter your bank details in the space provided.
Home / Office lessons are paid at ¥3,000 / hr.
This rate is set and cannot be negotiated.
You will find this is higher than most English salaries in Japan.
Please only take on students near your home station, or that you are comfortable with.
We mostly use Starbucks for trial lessons which means the minimum cost is ¥110 for a bottle of water.
It is paid if the student decides to continue lessons.
The main reason that the student doesn’t join is they didn’t understand the teacher or the teacher was late or untidy.
