Position: Skype English Tutors 
Posted by: Topic-Time
Location: Remote
Contract: Full-Time

Here’s a job received directly from the company:

Hi,

I hire JET alumni!  I would love to post with you guys regarding hiring Skype English Conversation tutors for Japanese people. Although I am not a JET alumni myself,  I did live in Japan for a year as an exchange student and fell in love with the language and culture.  This is what prompted me to begin this tutoring business:  To be a bridge between Learners and Teachers.  This is what I would like to post with you.  Feel free to pass this to whomever can benefit :)

Topic-Time

A small American company hiring people from America for strictly Japanese students. Pays $12 per 55 minute lesson. I live on the East Coast of America. I own a small business that is growing quite rapidly. I am looking to hire 20 more tutors. One of my teachers was accepted into the JET program. He found it invaluable to work here in a small way to prepare for what was coming in Japan. I also think that this might be very helpful for JET Alumni re-acclimating themselves to their home country. Or like me, an older woman who looks back affectionately on my time in Japan and sees my conversations as a way to re-connect with the culture I know and appreciate so well.

This job pays $12 per 55 minute class completed and is paid through PayPal on a weekly basis. The tutors make their own schedule of when they would like to give classes. The students choose which teacher they would like to have teach them. The job is “located” on Skype. Preference is given to tutors who know a little about the Japanese language and or culture and for those tutors who type fast.
