      Hi Mel ,
      I want to sign up what is your referral code? I clicked on your link but its asking for a code.

      • Mel

        Here is my code 01FIEZ. I would love to help you with the hiring/application process. Good Luck!

    I applied after you posted this a few weeks ago, and I’m in my first full week of teaching! I love it so far! The training is very helpful, and the kids are adorable! From the time I first applied on the websites to getting my contract took just over a week, and I already have 10 classes booked! I have never worked for an ESL company before, but my experience so far with SayABC has been amazing!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO awesome to hear that! Very happy you have been loving it so far! Thanks a bunch for sharing with us!

    • Katiestenmark

      Can you give me an idea of the hours you teach? Is it 6 am?

      • Aimee

        I am in Central Time Zone, so my morning class slots are
        5:00 – 5:40
        5:50 – 6:30
        6:40 – 7:20
        7:30 – 8:10
        There are also some evening slots available on Fridays and Saturdays.

    I currently work for SayABC’s parent company VIPKID and I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is! The flexibility to work at home while my kiddos are sleeping cannot be beaten! This job has given our family the financial freedom we needed for my husband to pursue full-time ministry as well! I’d love to answer any questions any one has about it 🙂 Feel free to email me at laurenmac10@gmail.com or get started here: https://t.vipkid.com.cn/activity/popup?refereeId=6783306&refersourceid=a01

    I am in central time zone and the morning class slots for me are
    5:00 – 5:40
    5:50 – 6:30
    6:40 – 7:20
    7:30 – 8:10

    has anyone found something similar for those who don’t have degrees? My esthetic license was a poor choice for work at home scenarios 😂

    • Mel

      I heard that magic ears didn’t require a degree, but I am not sure.

    • Kris

      Magic ears does not require a degree but they require online teaching experience.

  5. Jenny

    Is this company located in the U.S.? Do we have to pay income tax?

    • Lauren Mobley

      No, they are located in China and you are considered an independent contractor. You fill out a 1099 when you are hired 🙂

    • K

      You will have to pay taxes when you file taxes at tax time. Average 20%, so it’s recommended that you set aside this amount to pay at the end of the year.

  6. Beth

    I just started with GoGoKid. It is one on one teaching with all curriculum provided for you. They pay 60% of your base pay for peak time slots that you open on your schedule but are not booked by students. They are offering a signing bonus of $150 for completing three classes during your first 30 days and another $150 for receiving no negative parent feedback in your first 30 days.


  7. Sara

    How do you teach if you don’t speak their language? I have a nursing degree, no formal teaching experience, but I am a school nurse… would I qualify?

    • Court

      Some kids know basic English and you use lots of props to demonstrate what they need to be learning. Many of the lessons start off incredibly simple and the kids are just parroting back what you say

    • K

      You need to have a bachelors degree for this company.

    • Mommyofwwa

      I work for SayABC, and you use a lot of pantomiming. Lol They do know some basic words, and the teaching platform does a lot of the work for you. I think any experience working with children is fine.

  8. Rn

    Not to get all in anyone business, but how often are you paid and on average the amount of the paycheck..I’m assuming it is direct deposit.
    Lastly do u need a computer with a webcam for this

    • amb041

      qkids pays around the 10th. and for most you need a camara

  9. amb041

    i work for qkids and it’s a great company! you can even request off 24 hours prior without penalty and they book your kids for you! no selling yourself! please email me for more information and i can get you set up!

    • tammy

      Does qkids need a bachelor’s degree as well?

  10. Tara

    For those on the East Coast what are your time slots? Also does one need a landline for this job?

    • amb041

      no, you do not need a landline.

      please email abankerd@gmail.com for more info

    • Mommyofwwa

      For SayABC, the morning time slots would start at 6:00am. You do NOT need a landline. The company highly recommends an Ethernet cable instead of WiFi.

  11. Melanie

    For those that work with these companies, can you work for more than one?

    • Beth

      Yes, you can work for more than one. You can choose the times that you are available for each company. You just have to be careful to make sure that you don’t end up double booked and need to cancel with one of the companies.

  12. amb041

    not if you have experience. please email me if you would like more info. abankerd@gmail.com

  13. Lauren

    Hi! I just applied for it. I also work for Q Kids which is similar and offers up to $20 an hour. I have been completely booked since starting and it is great. They also do not require a degree. If you want to check it out look here: http://teacher.qkids.net/ref?code=WMNEGW
    If anyone has any questions let me know 🙂

  14. Mike

    Does anyone know of any I can work at without any prior teaching experience? I have a Bachelor’s degree but no teaching experience.

    • Mommyofwwa

      For SayABC, you don’t need traditional classroom experience. Anything like coaching, volunteer work, teaching children at church, etc. should work. I just got hired, and there was no background check, I didn’t have to upload my diploma, and I didn’t have to submit a resume. I know these were necessary in the past, so I’m not sure if they’ve changed the policy or if it’s dependent on your credentials. Also, the “up to 21 dollars” is actually for teaching 40 minutes not an hour! You have a base pay of $15, and then bonuses.

      • Mike

        Awesome! Thanks for the reply!
