For individuals looking to work in Japan, finding a fair and reliable employer is a necessity. We have all heard of or experienced such stories as “working and not being paid“ or “service overtime”. We at An English Club want those individuals to know that there is a better opportunity out there.
At AEC we always put the wellness of the company first, which means that both our customers and employees don’t lose sleep, knowing that they are part of a strong, stable and lasting organization. Our goal is to provide both our customers and our employees with a learning environment and cross-cultural experience of the highest possible quality.
We would like you to know that we offer a very fair contract compared to other English schools. We have a reputation for being a supportive and fair employer and most of our teachers have come here from other schools. We contract up to 30 hours teaching a week although most of us actually teach an average of 20-24 hours per week. Our classes are stacked and when your classes are finished for the day, so are you. There are no long breaks between classes, which means some days you are only working for 4-6 hours. Similar companies offer contracts up to 40 hours a week where you must be on location the whole time for the same price. This gives you what money can’t buy, your free time. We offer 5 weeks vacation, even if it’s your first year, and the support we offer is specific to your needs. We are sure that you, like our current teaching team, will find the experience rewarding.

The salary is 250,000 yen/month and in American dollars this is roughly $2500/month. Since all relevant taxes are less than 10% of your income, you get to keep most of your salary unlike other countries that you may have or are working in. The cost of living isn’t much different than you are used too. Rent depending where you live is about \45,000 (roughly $450)/ month, and a frugal shopper can easily eat for \20,000(roughly $200)/ month.
Salary is direct deposited into a bank account made for you by AEC.
Work related transportation expenses are reimbursed with your salary payment.
(Not included are flights to and from your home and moving costs)
We stack our classes so that there are little to no gaps between classes. This means no idle time or long breaks making your day longer than it has to be. Most of our classes are from late afternoon until evening, because 90% of our classes are children coming after school. Since most of our classes are children, no suits are required. We have our own textbooks and methods from which to plan your lessons from. This means that even if you are new to teaching you can feel confident going into any class.
A full time teacher contract is 240 days/year with up to 40 working hours/week; which up to 30 hours is teaching in any given week. Although most teachers have an average of 22 hours per week in class, you could occasionally be asked to teach up to 30. Once your lessons are finished you may go home. The remaining time spent planning lessons can be done on your own at home. If you need help or advice, our management is just a phone call away. Our contract affords you the time to pick up extra money without overextending your energy.
