Welcome to Gaba's recruiting site: "Teaching in Japan"!
Gaba is Japan's leading provider of one-to-one English lessons. Our approach to teaching has always been one-to-one because we believe it is the most effective and rewarding way to both teach and learn the English language.
Whether you are in Japan or abroad, we invite you to explore this site. We are dedicated to providing potential instructors with all the information needed to make an informed decision before applying for a teaching position. Detailed here is information on the company, locations of our schools or "Learning Studios" across Japan, job requirements, the interview process, and available teaching positions. Be sure to watch the various video content; you can observe a lesson, hear comments from actual instructors, and tour an LS. In addition, there are sample calculations of earning potential and an explanation of the various opportunities beyond teaching English at Gaba.
For those who are considering coming to the country for the first time, an introduction to life in Japan is provided to aid in the decision process. Japan is a great choice: safe, surprisingly affordable, and immensely convenient. Each city, however, is different, so be sure to read up on the various regions and choose accordingly. Keep in mind that Japan is about the size of California - making it bigger than either the UK or France! Of course, information on accommodation and visa requirements is all here too.
If teaching English is something new, rest assured that there is thorough training provided ("certification" as it is called at Gaba). Details are available on the various programs on offer. In the event you cannot find the particular information you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to call or email Instructor Recruiting. We all have experience teaching in Japan as Gaba instructors, so ask us about the lessons, the lifestyle, or the country in general!
Life in Japan has its peculiarities and teaching with Gaba is challenging, but the returns are equally great. The variety of people alone - from the clients to the instructors to the support staff - means you will learn as much as you'll ever teach. Gaba instructors and staff hail from all over the world, so you will gain insights into not just Japan but other destinations on your travel list as well.
Think carefully. Weigh your options. If you decide teaching with Gaba is right for you, the recruitment process starts with the online application form available here. All applicants can expect a timely response.
Thank you for your interest in Gaba. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
