Here’s a part-time job received directly from Scarlett Moulder and Topic Time English:

We Love JETS!! We are an America based company hiring around 15 more online tutors for Japanese students.

This job might also 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.
