Job Description

Alpros Online is presently seeking professional teachers for Online Coaching for the following time ranges:

  • Weekday evenings (18:00 – 21:50) - High demand
  • Weekends (10:00 – 17:50) - High demand
  • Weekdays from 10:00

What you would do:

Working closely with individual students online from your own home, you would focus on helping them improve their English and associated skills with regular 50-minute weekly lessons and set homework activities.

Students sign up for one month at a time and continue if satisfied with the classes and teacher's support.

Typical customers are looking to achieve specific test scores, preparing to live, study, and/or work overseas, or are working/studying in international environments in Japan.

Native English teachers will focus on all four skills (reading / writing / listening / speaking) whereas native Japanese teachers will start focused on vocabulary and grammar before moving on to all four skills.


Teaching serious and enthusiastic students, you can enjoy working from the comfort of your own home (or other suitable environment). The flexibility of the class scheduling is ideal for teachers looking to fill gaps. The homework correction can be done conveniently in downtime between other jobs or in the morning/at night.

Materials are provided so teachers can focus on lessons and homework correction rather than preparation.

How to apply:

As well as you resume, please include a short cover letter to explain why you would be a good match for this position and be sure to answer the included screening questions.

We encourage teachers from non-native English or Japanese-speaking countries to emphasize any educational background or experiences in your cover letter that demonstrate proficiency equivalent to that of a native speaker.

Student Continuity Reward:

Successful teachers effectively support and motivate students and this leads to increase compensation.

  • First month with a new student: ¥10,000
  • 2-3 months with the same student: ¥15,000 per month
  • 4-6 months with the same student: ¥18,000 per month
  • 7 or more months with the same student: ¥20,000 per month

Note: Payment is for each month of classes (four lessons) and covers the four days of homework tasks
