VIPKID

In February 2019, I started working for VIPKID teaching English to kids in China, and I LOVE it! About a year earlier, a friend casually mentioned that she does this and if I was ever looking to go back to work that I should look into it. In January 2019, I came across an article online about teaching English to kids in China so I asked my friend more about it. My only regret is not starting sooner :) 

Teaching through VIPKID has been a very fun and fulfilling part-time job for me. My degree and past work experience has had nothing to do with teaching. In fact, other than my first semester at college, I have never even considered teaching but it has turned out to be something I really enjoy.  The extra income for our family has been very helpful too.

I share this because so many of us are looking for extra ways to make an income and teaching through VIPKID is a great way to do that! It is a bonus because it is a job from home (or anywhere-plenty of people travel and teach).  The hours are flexible and because of the time difference are outside of a regular 9-5 job. And the kids are really CUTE! Most are so excited and eager to learn!

Here is some additional information and questions I get:

Requirements.
A Bachelors degree or higher (in anything) 
Eligibility to work in the US or Canada
At least 1 year of teaching experience (mentoring, homeschooling, tutoring
   coaching, babysitting, and other life experiences)**if you aren't sure, ask me! 
                          
The Pay. Teachers make anywhere from $14-22/hour. In my experience and from what I have heard from others, I would say it is typically in the $18-20/hour range. There are some additional bonuses too! 

The Hours.  This is in CST (timezone I live in) and may need to be adjusted if you are in a different time zone.  From daylight savings time in March-November, China is 13 hours ahead of CST. The "hot" hours to teach during this time are between 5-9 am. There are additional hours over the weekend (when students are not in school in China) which start Friday night at 7:30 pm going all through the night until Saturday at 9 am and again Saturday night at 7:30 pm-Sunday 9 am. 

 When the time changes in November (they are now 14 hours ahead of CST) "hot" hours become 4-8 am and start at 6:30 pm on Friday/Saturday nights running through the night until the next morning at 8 am. 

The Schedule. You set your own! You can work as much or as little as you want!
