Hello Sensei doesn't interfere with the actual lessons, so language instructors can directly communicate with students, set up lessons, and create learning plans. This connection allows teachers to create personalized learning plans, and ensure a seamless and effective teaching process. If you’re considering becoming an English tutor in Tokyo or anywhere else in Japan, Hello Sensei is your ideal platform.

Teaching languages privately gives you more flexibility and freedom to build your own schedule around other responsibilities. The only thing you need is the passion for teaching with a bit of free time!

There is a high demand for professional language teachers with teaching experience in Japan. However, students also choose private teachers according to other important traits, like friendliness, teaching approaches, support, etc. You can become a successful teacher even without a degree!

If you are searching for a part time or full time corporate English teaching jobs or English teacher positions in “Eikaiwa” schools, there are also different companies and language schools that use Hello Sensei to find and hire the right professionals.
