I have worked at AES for 1 year now. Everything in the job description is true and accurate. The stability and predictability of hours and income this company provides is unique in the English teaching industry in Japan. The curriculum is strictly followed and deviation from the curriculum is not tolerated. However, management will consider suggestions if run through them first. There are no outside hours work needed. Basic understanding of Google sheets and Google drive as well as access to these programs is required. Due to customer requirements, strict dress code is followed. This is not an eikawa (typical english school). Hours and working days are not flexible. However, with reasonable advanced notice, management will work with you if you want to take a personal day or vacation. Overall it will be hard to find another company that meets or exceeds the benefits that AES provides. As long as you can follow the procedures and teach your classes, you will do fine.
I recommend this job for teachers who already have experience teaching in Japan and who enjoy teaching motivated adult students one on one. The company provides this environment well and has built a good reputation. Work life balance is achievable since the system they’ve put in place is efficient and easy to get used to. The working environment is friendly and the management is reasonable and responds to questions quickly. I would recommend this company to friends as well.
What I really appreciate about working for A.E.S is that the curriculum and teaching style is very clear and effective. Support from the management is great and flexible. We are a small team of teachers with different backgrounds, but our team-chemistry with one another is solid. I enjoy working in a positive environment with my colleagues and students. It can't get any better than this in the English teaching industry in Tokyo.
This school offers excellent support and management and treats teachers with professionalism and fairness. The hours are are perfect. Management at the school has done an excellent job at creating a simple and thought-out system for teachers. Definitely worth working for!
