The Registration Process

STEP 1 Download the app from the App Store.

  • Smiling photos are preferred









Profile Text

  • Should be in Japanese, English, or the language you are teaching in
  • Introduce yourself in a few sentences
  • Tell us who you are, your background, what languages you are fluent in
  • Briefly mentioning your interests is also a plus
  • Explain the kind of lessons you are offering
  • If you have any prior teaching experiences, mention that as well

* Having a description in Japanse is very important. If you are not fluent in Japanese, or are not comfortable writing in Japanese, you may submit an English version of your introduction to Tom, and have it translated into English. However, it may take a few days for Tom to get back to you.

Teaching Location

  • Select the most convenient location for your lessons on the map by searching the station name

Fill in the rest of the form. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Tom.


  • Select the times you are available for giving lessons at

STEP 3 Submit your ID

  • Residence Card

You will be required to submit some form of identification as your final step of registering as a teacher.

Submit the front and back of your ID. There should not be anything obscuring your ID, such as your fingers or shadows.

Please make sure that the photos you submit are clear and bright, and that the information on your ID can be seen clearly.

*We can only accept those who are legally permitted to work in Japan.

If you have a separate form indicating your eligibility to work in Japan, please submit that through the form as well.

STEP 4 Verification

You should receive the results of the verification process within 24 hours.

Our Customer Support Staff Tom will send you a message through the chat.

Once your ID has been approved, you are free to schedule lessons with your students.

Good luck!

    Good day! I just want to ask if this job provides visa support. I’m currently a nihongo student and i’ll be graduating on March this year. My plan is to stay in Japan longer and the only way to make that possible is for me to have a work visa. Your response will be very much appreciated, thank you!
