  • English Level Native level
  • Japanese Level Not necessary
  • Restricted to Domestic Applicants? Japan only

Regardless of your nationality, English MUST be your first and native language. If English is not your FIRST language you will not be considered.

You must be RESIDENT in Japan to apply and you must hold a valid working visa.

Overseas applicants or applicants without a valid working visa will not be considered. We do not sponsor visas.

When applying, please send your CV/resume along with a recent photo of yourself. Teaching experience is not necessary, but CVs/resumes which do not include a photo will not be considered for interview. 

Seven Seas English Academy (SSEA) is now seeking a part time native English teacher at its newly-opened Hikawadai branch in north-west Tokyo. 

The ideal applicant is someone who can teach English sincerely and politely, and who can maintain a rapport with our Japanese students. We hope to find a candidate who aims to stay in Japan long-term and is interested in building an understanding of Japanese culture and customs in order to better relate to their students.

Some basic proficiency in Japanese is preferred, but not required. The majority of work is carried out in English and all support staff are English-speaking.

Any prior teaching experience you have will certainly be an advantage, but is not considered mandatory, as we believe the most important attribute for a successful English instructor is your desire and ability to connect with your students. Therefore, we look forward to receiving your application even if you have little to no previous teaching experience or Japanese language ability but have an interest in learning more. 

SSEA is a rapidly growing business and the quality of our teaching staff as people is our strongest selling point among our students. We also offer a highly competitive hourly rate, flexible working hours, generous holidays, convenient locations, no strict dress code, and free Japanese tuition for dedicated staff members. 

All of this, plus a casual and easygoing environment makes SSEA a great place to work with a unique, close-knit, welcoming atmosphere that is rare among English schools in Tokyo. Our aim is not to make large profits, but to improve conversational English education in Japan, and we look forward to hiring someone who can help us meet that goal!

Tasks include:

  • English teaching to students (from elementary school age to seniors)
  • Preparation of classes and curriculum
  • Collection of tuition fees
  • Lesson scheduling
  • Tidying classroom

Working Hours: 

  • Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs: 11:45am to 9:45pm
  • Saturday: 8:45am – 4:45pm

Payment: 1,750 yen to 3,200 yen (dependent on type of class and number of students) per hour scheduled (45 mins lesson + 15 mins prep)

Transport Costs: Paid up to 800 yen per day. 

Contract Term: Initial contract 6 months with a 3 month probationary period. Second contract 1 year upon renewal.
