GOGOKID is a great company. I’ve been teaching with this company since August of 2018. I’ve been making a great, steady income and I have fun teaching my GOGO kiddies while I travel. The company offers some irresistible incentives that you don’t want to miss. Not only that, but the lessons are simple, fun, and feature songs that will have you jamming like nobody’s business. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this company, too.

What benefits does Gogokid offer its teachers?

How does GOGOKID pay?

Teacher’s pay rates are based on a Base Pay + Credit Score Incentive structure aimed at enticing teachers to teach more classes. Base pay rates range from $7 per 30-minute lesson to $10 per 30-minute lesson. Your base pay will be determined during the interview.

*The following may be confusing. If you find your self getting dizzy, just scroll down or click here to view the official video explanation.

Credit Score Incentive ($0-2.5) + Base Pay ($7-10) = Earnings ($7-12.5) per class

The Credit Score Incentive is determined by multiplying your Incentive Base by your Incentive Percentage

Credit Score Incentive = Incentive Base ($0-$2) * Incentive % (0%-125%)

The Incentive Percentage is determined by your Credit Score. New teachers will start out at Level 1. Being on time, teaching more lessons, avoiding cancellations, and other positive behaviors will help you increase your credit score. Reach higher levels to increase your base pay.

Credit ScoreIncentive Percentage
Level 1: (0 – 59)0
Level 2: (60 – 69)0
Level 3: (70 – 79)100%
Level 4: (80 – 94)110%
Level 5: (95 – 100)125%

The Incentive Base is determined on a daily basis. If you teach 2-3 classes on Monday, you’ll receive an additional $1.50 per lesson. If you teach 5 classes on Tuesday, you’ll receive an additional $1.70 per lesson, and so on.

Number of Classes Completed Per DayIncentive Base Per Completed Class
2-3$1.50
4-5$1.70
6-8$1.80
9 or more$2.50
The more classes you teach, the higher your Incentive Base will be.

Okay, so let’s look at a couple of examples. You start at Level 1 with a Base Pay of $8.50. Since the Incentive Percentage for Level 1 is 0%, you do not receive any extra incentive pay besides the Incentive Base per class. Let’s say you taught 5 classes today. Today’s per lesson earnings will be :

$8.50 +$1.70 = $10.20/lesson ($20.40 per hour)

Now let’s say your Base Pay is $8.50, but your Credit Score is at Level 4. At Levels 3 and 4, you can take advantage of an additional pay incentive determined by multiplying your Base Pay by the Incentive Percentage.

$8.50 * 110% = $9.35

Now let’s add the Incentive Base for those 5 lessons you taught today:

$9.35 + 1.70 = 11.05/lesson ($22.10) per hour

I hope that makes sense to you. If not, please let me know. Check out the video below for an explanation with visuals.

I’m An EPIK Teacher

My EPIK teacher life

It’s officiIt’s official. I am an EPIK teacher in South Korea! No more hospital lab work. I’ve gotten TEFL certified and cleared to teach English in South Korea.

I decided to start this blog to chronicle the happenings of my first expat experience, and to keep friends and family abreast of my well-being.

A sign of things to come?

I arrived in South Korea on March 26th, and well, I can say it has been an experience! I developed acute bronchitis a week after arriving. I suffered through pretty severe symptoms for a month. I was weak, dehydrated, had a sore throat, lost my voice and had bloody phlegm- and was still expected to teach- and teach I did.  I’m a trooper 🙂  (So glad it’s over!)

I was placed in a small, agricultural town in Gangwon Province called Wasu.  I’ve never been gawked at so much as I have since being here. It’s quite amusing. I’m a bit of star right now. The townspeople are pretty nice. I try to walk through town often to get everyone used to seeing me and interacting with me.

Not making any promises!

I tend to be quite busy between 4 schools, after school classes, an adult class, and preparing lessons for all of my classes, but I will try to update this blog often.

Well,

The view from my apartment window when I arrived in Wasu.

I must get back to my EPIK teacher life…

Until next time!
