What is VIPKID?
VIPKID provides an international learning experience to children in China between the ages of 4-12. The company is headquartered in Beijing and offers fully immersive one-on-one English language instruction provided online by qualified teachers. The curriculum is based on the U.S. Common Core State Standards and uses a flipped-classroom approach to foster creativity and critical thinking skills.
A few perks of working for VIPKID:
You can work from home or anywhere else that you want – no commuter traffic! You’ll be able to set your own schedule and work as few or as many hours as you’d like. (It’s recommended that qualified teachers be available for at least 7.5 hours of teaching time per week.)
VIPKID provides the lesson plans for you to choose from. They even communicate with parents so you don’t have to! You just need a computer, passion, and skills for teaching.
- You don’t need a degree in education to be a VIPKID teacher! All you need is a bachelor’s degree in ANY field AND one school-year of traditional teaching experience or the equivalent in mentoring, tutoring, or alternative education.
- Qualified teachers will teach English to young students online and will make between $14-$22 per hour. Your minimum pay will be determined by your demo class performance and incentives by your monthly class participation and completion.
Do large classrooms intimidate you? No worries!

“I have been with VIPKID for just over 100 days. It took what seemed like forever to start getting bookings, but once I hit about day 75, they started to trickle in. Now all of the time slots I open seem to get booked. I love being able to set my schedule. I can teach for a few hours on the weekend before my kids get up, and then still enjoy the rest of the day. If you have kids and toys around, you likely have what you need to easily enhance your lessons.”
“I too am going to jump on the bandwagon and say that I LOVE teaching with VIPKID! The children are precious and it’s so exciting to see them learn and grow! I have formed a special bond with my regular students and even some of their parents! (Some of my regular students and I write letters, send packages, and keep each other updated on our lives! It’s so fun!) I never expected that from this job! The pay is great and I love the flexibility.”
“VIPKID has been such a blessing to my family. I have been teaching since January. I actually signed up from one of these posts. It took me seeing this posted about three times & doing a ton of research before I decided that I was ready to give it a try (I’m not good at going outside of my comfort zone) & I so regret not doing it sooner. We just recently bought my husband a brand new truck with the extra income! I teach about 150 classes a month & I am in the process of helping a couple teachers from our school district through the hiring process right now. It is something I 100% believe in or I wouldn’t be referring my friends, neighbors, & co-workers.”
