Welcome to VIPKid!! Not a teacher yet? Or thinking about becoming a teacher? Great!! This post is for you. I have been a VIPKid teacher for almost a year now, and it has been an overall positive experience for me.

About a year ago I started teaching English online through VIPKid. If you are not familiar with VIPKid, it is an online service that provides English instruction to children in China. To become a VIPKid teacher, there are various trainings and interviews that you must complete, but it is definitely worth it. This post will be about my journey to become a VIPKid teacher, including my “why.”
I first learned about VIPKid, in 2019, and always thought it would be a cool side-hustle to bring in some extra income for my family. I mean, teaching English from your couch, yes please! I got more serious about applying to be a VIPKid teacher when the world went into lockdown during the coronavirus, early 2020. I started doing more research about the company and the requirements to teach, and finally got around to signing up, and going through the interviews and training in May/June 2020.
I’ve been teaching classes now for almost a year, and honestly, I wish I would have done this years ago. Here are some reasons that I would encourage you to sign up as a VIPKid teacher:
