AIM Academy is currently looking for committed and motivated individuals to join our team! We are an all-English after-school academy located near Ishikawacho Station & Motomachi Chukagai Station in Yokohama.

Tutors will teach English language arts following our original curriculum and using materials that are provided. Most students are bi-cultural international school students and returnees. All lessons are taught in a 1-to-1, 1-to-3 or 1-to-6 setting and entirely in English.

This full-time position is ideal for outstanding individuals with a passion for teaching and helping others reach their goals.

Working hours:
Monday-Friday 14:00-20:30

Teachers will continue to teach the same students every week, so it’s great chance to build rapports and really get to know and help your students on a personal level. Mentors, leaders, and motivators are desirable here. Cancellations and make-up lessons happen, so flexibility is also necessary.

Transportation will be compensated fully.

– have strong interpersonal skills
– care about the student’s learning and enjoyment throughout the lesson
– be able to develop a positive rapport with students and colleagues through an energetic and supportive medium
– have an interest in personal growth
– be able to conduct structured yet exciting and high powered lessons
– be a team player and be ready to contribute to making the classroom a positive environment for both the students and teachers
– be flexible to sudden changes and cancellations
– have excellent and timely communication skills
– be open to feedback and criticism
– be a problem solver
– have a growth mindset

This position is not suitable for people who are set in their ways, not open to trying new things, or lack a desire to grow.

Other requirements:
– be a native speaker of English

Not necessary but preferred skills:
– knowledge or experience in International Schools and the IB program
– English-Japanese Bilinguals preferred (English proficiency is a must)
– have prior teaching experience

If interested, please send your CV with a cover letter, photo and 2 references.

Only those that pass the initial screening process will be notified.
