VIPKID Teaching Opportunity – Six Month Update


I have been teaching with VIPKID for almost six months now and wanted to give you an update.

First, this opportunity has been a blessing to my family financially.  Through VIPKID, I am able to make additional money and modify our budget to build in things that were not possible before.

Second, I am able to work my own hours.  I can choose to work in the evenings, mornings (or all night long!).  I choose to work the early morning hours from 5:00-9:00.  It was hard at first, but now that I’m in the routine, it’s going well.

Third, there is room for advancement with VIPKID.  In addition to teaching my regular classes, I can refer other teachers to VIPKID and receive additional bonus money for referrals.  Also, there are opportunities to increase your salary when your contract is renewed (at 6 months).  There is also an opportunity to become a Mentor Teacher.  The hourly pay rate is much higher than when teaching a regular class.  I am not a Mentor teacher, so I don’t have a lot of details about that, but it’s something to check into.

Fourth, I enjoy getting to know the students!  Half of the students I teach are regulars.  This means, I usually see them on a weekly basis.  I have been able to build a rapport with these students and sometimes with the parents as well (sometimes a parent sits off-camera, beside the student during class).  I enjoy having the kids tell me about Chinese New Year or share about their day.  It’s really amazing how connected our world can be through the use of technology!

If you are interested in signing up with VIPKID, I’d be grateful if you would use my referral link (below).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Teaching with VIPKid – Huge Year End Referral Mega-Incentive





Recently, I wrote an article in The Old Schoolhouse Magazine on the topic of working at home to supplement your family’s income.  You can read a post about that here.

Shortly after that article, I discovered another very do-able way to make money from home.  It’s through a program called VIPKid.  I have been teaching online classes to Chinese students through this program.  There’s no prep work!  I just log on and hit “Go to Classroom.”  I follow the Powerpoint (provided) and go through the slides one at a time for 25 minutes.  I add Feedback and then I’m done!

I cannot say enough good things about the ease of this program.  VIPKid pays very well too!  You can make about $20/hour.  ($8/25min class with $1 incentive for being on time, and $1 incentive for finishing the class)

You make your own hours!  You can get up early to teach or teach in the evenings – whatever works best with your family’s schedule.  For example, you could teach from 5:00-9:00 (8 classes) and make about $80/day.

Right now, VIPKid is doing an huge Year End Referral Mega-Incentive program. 

I’d be grateful if you’d like to use my referral link:

Once you sign on, you can refer others and get $150 for each referral who signs up and teaches one class from now until December 31!

I wanted to be sure to share this great opportunity with you.  If you have questions, please email me.
