Are you interested in becoming an Excedo Language Coach?

We are currently building a Language Coach team in Asia to provide online classes to our Japanese learners.

If you:

  • live in Asia
  • have experience of teaching Asian learners
  • are an experienced online language teacher
    (either a native or non-native speaker)

Then we have just the role for you!


About us

Excedo is the brainchild of Nikkei, Japan’s largest media company, and the Financial Times, one of the world’s leading news organisations. At Excedo we help develop effective English communicators who are able to work confidently in a global and modern business world.

The Excedo Method™ has been extensively researched and tested across international markets. The result is a mobile first approach to learning English that focuses on active, not passive, learning. The Excedo Method™ is a unique learning experience accessed through our Excedo app.

Learners are guided step-by-step through the experience, which begins with self-study activities that present and practice key language concepts based on real-life business scenarios and video case studies. They are then guided through collaborative activities to put into practice what they have learned with another learner.

The self-study and collaborative activities are designed to prepare learners to be active and confident participants in the group classes with the Language Coach. During the group classes, they demonstrate what they have learned through active participation in business related tasks.


We require that all teachers in our Asian Language Coach team live in an Asian time zone. This allows us to provide a more immediate service to our Asian learners, and minimises inconvenience to you since sessions will less likely take place during antisocial hours.

You must also:

  • be a qualified English language teacher
  • have experience of teaching online
  • have some professional business experience
  • be able to demonstrate mastery of English (CEFR C1/C2 level)
  • have a broadband connection
  • be prepared to teach evenings and weekends
Coach models

Our Language Coaches facilitate small groups (maximum 4) in a virtual classroom. Classes last 30 or 45 minutes. The role of the Language Coach is to encourage maximum learner interaction. All session plans and support materials are provided by Excedo.

We require our Language Coaches to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per month.  Due to varying customer demand, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of hours each month, however the maximum number of hours offered to Language Coaches each month is unlimited.

Our Language Coaches are hired on a 6-month contract with automatic renewal.

We provide a fair remuneration model which takes the dynamic of our business into consideration. 

Language Coach Remuneration Model

More than 12 hours notice

The majority of our sessions are scheduled more than 12 hours in advance according to the Language Coach’s availability.


Sessions will be paid if they are cancelled with less than 12 hours notice and if the learners do not attend after 10 minutes.

Less than 12 hours notice

At times we need to schedule sessions with less than 12 hours notice on account of learner demand. In these instances, remuneration is slightly  higher given the the short notice to our Coaches.
