HOW TO APPLY
AEON and AMITY
The main focus of AEON schools is primarily adult education, although many of the AEON schools also conduct “AEON Kids” classes. If you are interested in teaching primarily adult students, or a combination of both adults and children, you should apply to be an AEON teacher.
Amity specializes in children’s English education and offers classes exclusively for preschool to high school aged youngsters. If you are interested in teaching mainly children’s classes, you should apply to be an Amity teacher.
“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.”
