Earn Money From Home Teaching with VIPKID

Special thanks to VIPKID for sponsoring today's post. VIPKID is an online English education platform allowing children (4-12) in China to take classes from North American teachers, all from the comfort of their homes. 

There are a lot of sacrifices involved in staying home to teach your kids. Earning money doesn't have to be one of them. There are many great ways to work from home that take advantage of the skills you've cultivated while teaching your kids. VIPKID provides an excellent opportunity for home educators to make money doing what they love: teaching!

What is VIPKID?

VIPKID connects teachers with Chinese students who are interested in learning English. They currently provide opportunities for 200,000 K-12 Chinese students and 20,000 teachers (most of whom are in the US and Canada) to partner together in a unique way. 

VIPKID's mission is to provide middle class Chinese students with an affordable international education experience. There is nothing quite like immersing a student in a language to help them gain mastery over a language. This is exactly what VIPKID strives to provide and all from the comfort of the child's home!

Who Can Teach With VIPKID?

This opportunity is perfect for homeschooling parents because it's super flexible. You schedule your hours and work from anywhere. Teachers can earn anywhere from $12-$22 per hour (average is $19).

Due to the time difference between the US and China bookings are generally early in the morning or later in the evening, which leaves you the day to spend with your own kids and their education. Check out this short video explaining the process:

The requirements for the teachers are:

  • bachelor’s degree in any field;
  • one school year of full-time teaching experience or equivalent hours in similar educational activities (e.g. home schooling, tutoring, educational mentoring, etc.);
  • eligibility to work in US or Canada.

Curious What Others Say?

This is such a cool opportunity, and honestly if I didn't already have an online Latin tutoring program, I'd apply with VIPKID. Here are some reviews from stay-at-home moms that are making it work:

VIPKID looks like an amazing company to work for. I love seeing how teachers are getting opportunities to not only reach out to families that are looking for opportunities for their children, but also creating new opportunities for financial freedom for their own families.

When you reach certain goals, you are rewarded with incentives including cash, prizes, even trips to Beijing! Wouldn't that be amazing?!

So what do you think? It can't hurt to look into this cool opportunity. Find out more about how you can earn money from home while teaching for VIPKID. Sign up to be a teacher and get started on the process. The sign up process is pretty simple:
