Smith’s School of English Sale
Are you looking for a chance to set your own schedule and build a business in a vibrant area of Japan?
Thinking about operating your own school but don’t want to start from scratch?
My Eikaiwa school is for sale. I am nearing retirement so I am searching for a teacher that is mature, serious and will do what it takes to get and keep students.
My school began in 2004 and has been a stable local community school focused on business people and adults. My students like the fresh topics I introduce each week. I moved the school this spring to a newer building nearer the local JR station and made an effort to create a more at-home, relaxed atmosphere. I have enjoyed coaching over 340 students since 2006.
You can run the school by yourself without having to hire any support staff.
Income is limited only by how much effort you want to put in. Rent covers the teaching space which can easily double as an apartment as it has a nice bath, a small kitchen, a washing machine space, a desk space, a good sized closet and a nicely sized veranda: a perfect live / work situation for a single person who can live in a clean and organized manner, but there are other nice accommodations available nearby for reasonable rent as well.
No Japanese language skills required.
