Using my referral link you can begin the process of filling out your application. It only takes a few short minutes to complete this step.
You will be required to complete a demonstration and mock class where you will interact with a mentor. You will need to be ready to teach in the ESL style. I will post more about this process very soon!
We recommend that you have at least two years of experience in teaching, tutoring, coaching or mentoring.
You must have obtained a 4-year degree from a university. Great news is that this can be in any field or major.
Work Authorization in US or Canada
Legally eligible to work in the U.S. or Canada.
Virtual classes require a few technical things to make it happen.
Desktop, Laptop, Macbook, iPad, or Microsoft Surface. We currently do not support Chromebook.
Windows 7, 8 and 10; Mac OS 10.X or higher operating system (Linux and Chrome OS are NOT supported by VIPKid). Intel i5 processor or higher. 8GB RAM or higher.
Fast and stable internet connection will make a smooth teaching and learning experience. We recommend a wired high-speed internet connection of ≥ 25 Mb/s.
VIPKid Teach App
Virtual stickers, animations, sound effects, anything you need to make the world a fun place from your fingertips.
A camera with a resolution of at least 2 megapixels is considered high-quality and well-functioning. Simply put, the better camera, the more clearly students can see you.
Headset, with a Microphone
A comfortable noise-cancelling headset will make your teaching more enjoyable. A nice crisp sound will help students hear you better as well. Remember, for the most part, they try to repeat after you.
Parents and students love a professional and educational background. Having a bright and fun backdrop can attract and engage young students. We love vibrant colors, especially our orange, Teacher Tangerine.
Get that spotlight ready! Bright, happy spaces lead to bright, happy learners. We recommend a full-size selfie ring or clip-on selfie rings to eliminate shadows on your face.
How much can I earn?
You can earn between $14-22/hr. Because you select your own hours, total earning opportunities vary.
What are the computer requirements to teach with VIPKid?
What kind of commitment is there?
You can sign on for a 6-month minimum commitment, but during that time, you can work as much or as little as you’d like.
Do I need to be able to speak Chinese?
Nope! VIPKid offers full English immersion for our students, so there’s no need to know any Chinese.
Can I teach with VIPKid on a Chromebook?
After you become a teacher with VIPKid, you would not be able to teach classes on Chromebooks. You can teach on a desktop, laptop, MacBook, iPad, or Microsoft Surface.
What are the recommended teaching accessories?
What are some essentials for when you’re traveling?
Traveling on the go can be done with ease. Once stationary, we recommend you set up for your lesson with an educational tapestry, computer device/ tablet, portable clip-on selfie light, and basic props. Most importantly, if you don’t have wifi access, make sure you have a portable hotspot.
