A fun but tiring experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ittti Japan full-time

Pros- The pay is great for the hours worked
- If you like working evening hours you can have lots of free time to explore Japan
-The curriculum has it's kinks, but it's usually fun and workable for the age group.
-Training is more thorough than other Eikaiwa

Cons-Kids can be badly behaved
-In spite of the emphasis on "safety," having a single teacher in charge of a batch of small kids is not a safe arrangement
-Japanese coworkers are often overworked

Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of the Japanese staff, and more readily provide backup teachers for young or difficult classes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

English Instructor for iTTTi Japan

English Instructor (Former Employee)

I worked at Ittti Japan full-time for less than a year

ProsFree time to yourself while commuting.

Supportive teachers and PSs.

Freedom to travel when not teaching.

Experience of a new country and help setting up in a new country.

ConsA lot of commuting, some in very remote locations with irregular transport and long walks to stations.

Long hours when added with the commuting.

Not enough time given outside of classes for class preperation and can be difficult to fit in within all the commuting plus lots of meetings to attend.

Not enough teachers in most locations so can end up covering in random places and with a hectic schedule.

Class sizes sometimes too large for only one teacher and not safe, particularly with the younger children. Which can be very stressful.

A lot of hours on your own.

The lesson curriculum is quite boring and requires a lot of your own improvisation in order to making the lessons interesting but can be difficult to find the hours to do this due to commuting. Already having teaching experience definitely helps.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo build a better regular curriculum.

To hire more teachers and allow more free time to prepare lessons.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

ConsCompany expectations were pretty strict in how lessons are taught.
