    Hello fellow teachers! The company I work for, VIPKID, is currently hiring teachers! I teach English to students living in China. You can work as much or as little as you want and earn $16-$22 an hour. It has been a perfect fit for staying home with my 1.5 year old daughter!

    Requirements are:
    1- Bachelors Degree (Any Field of Study)
    2- Native English Speaker
    3- 1 year of any teaching experience.

    I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Message me below if interested, and I can get more information to you!

    I wanted to do this for summer work. However, the application doesnt allow me to say that I cant start until 3week in June. Is there anyway around that?

    You are a new poster. If you decide to stick around, you'll have more freedoms as you continue to participate. There are already a couple of threads started by people interested in your program, so you might want to look for those.

    Great question! Once you apply, you set up your interview and go through a process that can take 1-2 weeks depending on how quickly you complete all of the training and mock classes you teach. If you want to start later in June you could either apply at the beginning of June or apply now and get your contract started, and then not open up any bookings until you are available. There is no longer a minimum on how many days you must teach! Let me know if you have any other questions! I love VIPKID!

    This sounds like a wonderful opportunity! About how many hours does it take most applicants to complete the interviewing and demo class process?

    It is usually 2-4 weeks. I mentor applicants and new teachers if you are interested in teaching for VIPKID. I would be happy to help you. I can not leave my email address here, but you can find my contact on YouTube channel name Nancy Taylor

    Thank you for the information, Nancy. I know of some fully credentialed teachers who are currently substituting and this VIPKID sounds like a teaching setting that they might really enjoy. I'll give them this information. Although I'm currently a classroom teacher, I also think that there's a good chance that I would like to try my hand in online teaching in the near future.

    During the application process, does the potential VIPKID teacher need to use Skype?

    A lot of full time teachers are applying now for some summer income and the hours actually work really well with teaching full time. They are early morning 4-8 am Mountain Time every day, and also 7pm-4 am the following day on Friday and Saturday!

    You will use the VIPKID classroom for the interview demo class and Mock classes. You will teach several classes through the training! They make sure teachers are well prepared for the classroom! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    P.S. Your friends will love VIPKID. I was subbing as well because I was home with my little, and then found VIPKID, and I love it!

    Thank you again, Nancy! So far, what I'm hearing is that teachers' computer requirements (e.g., internet speed, browser) are passing all of the equipment requirements except for the microphone requirement. The teachers are receiving a message stating that their microphone isn't working. I tried to get their microphone to work and although it worked on other programs, it isn't working on the VIP Kids classroom portal. The teachers also tried using a headset and again, everything except for the microphone works. Do you know of anyone who has had this issue? Do you know of possible solutions? Thanks again!

    Yes! I have had this issue. I had to update my flash player and use Chrome web browser. I also messaged the headphones in the classroom (IT) and they sent me a new link for the classroom which worked. I have also gone into settings on my computer and clicked on "sound" to find what the sound was connected to. It should have the headphones that you are using listed. Another thing to check is in the classroom there is a "Settings" tab on the bottom right of your video picture that you click on and click on "Microphone" you can adjust the volume and you will be able to hear what is being picked up! Hope this helps!!! Best way to learn is to go through these little hiccups:)

    Thank you, Nancy! If any of the substitute teachers I know get accepted to VIPKID, then I'll tell each of them to make sure that they give you the referral credit in case if the company would give you recognition for recruiting new teachers.

    I'm happy to help you out as well. If you already applied you can use this referral code and it will keep me posted on where you are in the application process! 00RFSO

    So happy you found VIPKID! It is the best! I wish I could put a link in here, but I'm so new that I don't have that ability yet! In due time:)

    Thanks so much! I sure appreciate it. I have a referral code that is 00RFSO. They can say that Nancy Taylor referred them and it will connect them to my name. I would love to help any of your friends through the application process because it can be kind of scary!:) Thanks for spreading the word! I love this job:)
