Job Description

AIM Academy is currently looking for a professional and experienced tutor who is capable of teaching English analysis at a high school level.

This is not an ESL teaching position; students are native English speakers, studying the International Baccalaureate (IB) at various international schools.

Lessons will be conducted in person at our academy in Motomachi-Chukagai, Yokohama.

Suitable candidates must demonstrate capability of and/or experience teaching:

  • Elementary language arts (reading, writing, spelling and grammar)
  • Middle school language arts (reading and essay writing)

The ideal candidate can demonstrate, in addition to the above subjects, capability of teaching one or more of the following subjects:

  • Math (elementary to calculus with the higher grades focused on the IGCSE/IB curriculum)
  • Sciences (chemistry, physics and biology at a level equivalent to the IGCSE and/or IB curriculum)
  • Social sciences and humanities
  • TOK
  • SAT

Working hours:

Hours for this position start at 1-2 day per week, 2-3 hours per day, and may increase with time.

Lessons are held between Monday-Friday 15:00-20:30

The work schedule is flexible, dependent on your availability and client demand within the above working hours. Part-time and contract work (set number of hours promised per week) available.

*Exceptional candidates can be considered for a full-time position.

All lessons are taught in a 1-to-1, 1-to-3 or group setting and entirely in English. Each lesson varies between 1-2 hours in length. We also have a number of students who come in for make-up lessons, so you should expect some irregular lessons to be booked throughout the month.

Starting Salary:

  • 2500 yen/hour for elementary school level lessons
  • 3000 yen/hour for Gr.6-10 level lessons
  • ¥1000/hour for training sessions

Transportation will be compensated up to 1000 yen/day

AIM Academy is right for you if you

  • have a stellar record of academic excellence, and consistently scored highly in standardized examinations (SSAT, SAT, IGCSE, AP, IB, etc)
  • have a strong passion for teaching and mentoring young people, holding them to the same high standards that they hold themselves for
  • are goal oriented and motivated to achieve goals (specifically improving students’ grades)
