If you enjoy working with kids 12 and under and are looking for a fun online gig with flexible scheduling, VIPKID might be the English teaching platform for you.
Not at all. You’ll use TPR (body language and gestures) and props to help your students understand what you’re saying.
This is a contract job, renewable every 6 months. Whether it’s full-time or not depends on your availability. You set your own hours. So, if you want to work part-time, you can. If you want to make it a full-time gig, go for it! It’s all up to you.
That’s up to you, too. The company headquarters is in China, but you can work from anywhere in the world. Teach from your kitchen or from a corner in your living room.
Nope! VIPKID’s lessons are already made for you, so there’s no lesson planning. All you have to do is review the lessons so you’ll know what you’ll be teaching, how you’ll teach it, and which props you’ll need.
*If you don’t have TEFL certification, you can enroll in a course offering a universally accepted certificate, or you can obtain one through VIPKID once you’ve been hired. If you take the latter route, the certificate can only be used with VIPKID and can’t be transferred to another ESL company.
VIPKID‘s pay ranges from $15 to $22 plus bonuses. Your pay will be determined by what you bring to the table in terms of qualifications and your interview performance. Having TEFL certification can help you score a higher pay rate. As an online teacher, you’ll be an independent contractor, so taxes will not be deducted from your pay. Get familiar with independent contractor tax obligations.
Be sure to read through the teacher FAQ’s on the company website to get more information. Once established as a VIPKID teacher, you’ll enjoy the freedom of working remotely, having fun, and making a stable income. Don’t delay, apply today!
