I remember how I felt when I first applied to work online as an ESL teacher with VIPKid. I was nervous about teaching kids in China. I was nervous about working online. I was unsure about working for a company in a different country. 

Here I am 546 days later - 1470  classes with 445  individual students under my belt. What is my advice for you? DO IT!!

VIPKid is a great company. I've put a list on the side of this page that are some of the biggest draws to teaching online with VIPKid. The money is good, the kids are great, and the freedom of working as an independent contractor is AMAZING.

I have a blog post where I answer some of the most common questions people have when they are first considering working for VIPKid. You can check that out here:

To work for VIPKid, you must have:

- Teaching experience of any kind including tutoring, coaching, or mentoring (at least 1 year of any of that)

- Any bachelor's degree or higher

- Eligibility to work in the U.S. or Canada

- A computer and headset (or iPad)

- High-speed internet connection (or a connection good enough for video chat, basically).

What are the requirements?

How do I get started?

The first step is to create an account and apply. It is best to do this through the link of a referrer who will help you through the process of getting hired, like me! Here is the link you can use to apply:

When you click on that, you will make an account using your email address and a password. Then, you are already one step closer to having the best online job!

Why should I let you be my referrer and mentor?

I am proud of the successful teachers that I have referred. To me, bringing new teachers on board and supporting them is now a critical part of the job that I enjoy almost as much as the teaching itself!

I pay a lot of attention to my referrals. Don't take my word for it. I send out a survey after a referrals has worked for a few months, and here are the results:
