First Lesson

Snitch & Earn

Get 1000 yen by letting us know if a school or matching service contacts you. Schools and matching services often use to add teaching staff. This is ok and encouraged BUT the price for schools/matching services to purchase teacher contact information is 9,800 yen. This is higher than the individual student price of 3,800 yen.

Schools sometimes don't notice that the price was 9,800 yen so these schools accidentally pay only 3800 yen. When we contact them to ask for the remaining balance, they usually pay up.

When you help us by letting us know when and by which person and school you were contacted, we check whether that school paid the correct amount. If they have not, and if we can collect, we'll gladly to give you a 1000 yen bounty when that school pays. We do not inform the school of our sources.
