The following is Teacher's Talita experience with VipKid.
I was interested in teaching on-line long before the “quarantine frenzy” and to be clear I am referring to the crazy amount of interest in any online job since the “lock-down” of Covid-19!
The reason I mention this is because during this time it seems that VIPKID was having trouble reviewing all applications “on time” due to the lack of staff.
As a result of this, when you are super excited because you have have passed your mock class and are ready to teach (and get payed) you might run into a waiting game (checking your email 20 times a day lol) that might last up to two weeks!
DON'T WORRY IT IS WELL WORTH IT THOUGH!
I am extremely happy to say that from the moment I got hired to the moment I got my first class only 24hrs passed, yes you heard me right, day 1 teaching with Vipkid I taught 5 classes, Day 2 I taught 4! I had heard it took people weeks to get their first class but that was not my experience!
The company is great it provides you with all the training workshops and information one might need (not mandatory).
It also has great bonus incentives, I got a base pay of $16 per hour, they gave me an extra $2 per class ($4) an hour just because I allow the 24 hr booking, on top of that they give an extra $1 per class ($2 per hr) just because I was on time.
As a result I make $22 an hour FROM HOME!
The best part is I teach children who actually want to learn, you do not need a teaching degree all you need is a B.A in anything, VIPKID trains you for the rest!
Working for this company is great for me because I live overseas with my 4 underage children so I need a company that I can work on my own schedule, during days and times that I am available.
I should mention that you are hired as an independent contractor so you are responsible for your own taxes! All in all AWESOME!
