japan

 

is becoming more and more accessible for students and teachers these days thanks to systems like Skype , msn, google talk.

With companies such as www.skypeenglish.jp/english  offering students and teachers a matching service for online teaching the future seems to be blossoming not only for Adult learners but also children .

Japanese people spend a large chunk of their income in their children’s education. TIME magazine reported that in 2010 alone, they spent an average amount of $2,600 in hopes of finding the best educators and instructors who can meet their expectations.

This money went, for the most part, to private institutes that provide private classes and tutorial sessions on English, Math, and some extra-curricular activities (such as taekwondo and violin lessons). Because of this, children have to wake up early in the morning and study until late at night, thereby depriving them of sleep and play.

This situation is “normal” in Japan, a practice that follows Confucian teaching that says knowledge is the key to wealth and prosperity. And of all the lessons and subjects that need to be learned, English sits on top of the priority list.

Japanese understand that to be globally competitive, they must speak English appropriately . Aside from their learning English in school, they also invest in English classes and tutorials offered by private individuals and companies .

It is for this reason that being an English teacher or tutor to Japanese students can be a profitable career. And the best part is, you don’t have to go to Japan to teach these students.

In addition to that, though highly recommended, you don’t have to have a teaching experience or a teaching certificate. All you have to do is be a NATIVE SPEAKER turn on your computer, log into Skype, and have your lessons online.

In short, you can be an online English teacher. But since you’ll be dealing with a different nationality, it’s important to have at least a background on your student’s culture as this may affect how your students interact with you during your online English classes.

 

1. Be punctual, and never miss a session.Japanese are one of the world’s most hard-working people in the world which is reflected in their strong work ethics. Even when they’re sick, they still report to work and do their job well. This is why they expect that their teachers should work well, too. So be prompt and never skip a class.

2. Make sure that you’re prepared. Even experienced online English teachers who know their lessons by heart acknowledge that the success of a class depends on the preparation.

Plan your lessons well, and make sure that you have a backup plan for situations that may crop up suddenly. Anticipate questions from your students, and always have an answer to these questions.

3. Give corrections.In general, Japanese love it when you give corrections. To them, it’s a sign that they’re learning from you. Here’s a warning though.

Pronunciation and grammar lapses should, no doubt, be corrected. But did you know that some teachers find it difficult to do this? You will encounter some students who are not receptive to these corrections, but eventually, you’ll be able to find a way to adjust and find a strategy to slip these corrections in.

4. Be sincere with your commendations.Some online English teachers don’t commend their students. Saying “great job” if students deserve it is good enough to motivate them. Don’t overdo this, though.

Make sure that come across as sincere and genuinely care about your student’s learning process, so by following these few tips you should have great success in your career as an Online teacher .

    Dear sir/ mam;
    I’m interested in teaching English(communicating, grammar) includes also guiding to right pronunciation for effective communication and for further access to research their studies. I was a private tutor of elementary students ; all subjects including English.
    I was married to a Japanese before and worked there as well. So, more or less i have an idea of their communicating style in Nihongo and English language. I think i can be an effective tutor to them. I’m 50 yrs old. Business Management graduate at University of Santo Tomas.
