Reviews about Pay & benefits for English Teacher at Sesame Street English

Totally Depends on Where You're Placed

Working at this company was bittersweet. They will work with your schedule, which is a plus. You'll likely teach at several school locations, and you may be moved to different schools or classes each year. I found that my experienced varied from unbearable to lovely depending on which school I was at. At some schools, everything was chaotic and I was treated poorly. At two of my schools, I felt very respected and included. The pay is ok, but like other teaching jobs in Japan, they don't pay you for set-up time (but they still want you to be 15 minutes early) and you may have an hour or two in between lessons. I found my Japanese coworkers to largely be quite friendly and helpful, but management wasn't proactive or helpful. There was turnover in upper management, and I felt zero support, feedback, or recognition afterward. There's also little quality control among teachers, both for native speakers and Japanese staff. Some teachers really go the extra mile, but there's no incentive (monetarily or otherwise) to perform well. I felt like the professionalism of the native teachers and upper management was also often lacking. If you actually care and enjoy teaching, this may be a difficult job. I often felt like I went above and beyond, yet I would have gotten the same response from management if I were just phoning it in. However, the curriculum and lesson plans are provided for you, and your kids really can learn a lot if you are supported by your school. ultimately left (even though I loved my kid sand some of my coworkers) since I knew I wouldn't be able to move - 

Pros

Flexible hours, provided lesson plans, no strict dress code, train fare included, small class size, assistant Japanese teacher

Cons

No hourly pay, possible dead hours between lessons, lack of feedback, lack of training, unprofessional communication, low standards, inconsistent quality
