Advantage English is open from 9:00am to 10:00pm but of course teachers are not required or expected to be available during all hours of the day. Every instructor has a unique schedule. Even busy teachers however, have time in the day to pursue other interests as long as they don’t require leaving the city. Some days are busier than others. We negotiate schedules for experienced and highly qualified teachers who also possess advanced social skills.
Instructors are off Monday. We are closed on Sunday. We are also closed on all national holidays. Instructors also have paid vacation during the summer O-bon for a week, and winter for a week. All national holidays are paid off. Advantage English follows all rules and guidelines set up by Japanese government labor offices.
Schedules include a wide mix, from babies to retired folks. We hope to see results with all students. Teachers are expected to use our proven Advantage English method for kids and adults. Most classes are small with five students maximum. For adults, texts are not allowed in group lessons and only allowed in private, adult lessons for certain situations. For kids, we use Let’s Go as our main kids text. Training is provided and an experienced Advantage English teacher will gain access to countless future opportunities and have the confidence and ability to teach anywhere in the world. Advantage teacher trainers are in demand.
