Hello! My name is Teacher Amy and welcome to my online classroom! Join me as I travel to China every morning to teach children ages 3-16 English! #teachgloballyworklocally
Who We Are
VIPKID is linking the world through education by providing an international learning experience that allows you to teach Chinese children from the comfort of your own home.
What We Believe
Our mission is to inspire and empower every child for the future. In order to do this, we have embarked on a better way to teach foreign languages. We encourage curiosity, critical thinking and creativity from our teachers and students.
What We Do
Through our online platform, we provide 1-on-1 full immersion language and content classes based on the US Common Core State Standards.
Here are some things to know before you get started!
1. You need a bachelor’s degree and some experience teaching children. I included my experience as a substitute teacher and my intern experience during college.
2. There is an application and interview process. You first can apply through the link below, VIP Kid will then reach out to you (if you qualify) to set up an interview. You will have a live interview with someone from China. They will ask you questions to get to know you a little better, then you will do your first mock class. Most times you will have to do 2 – 3 mock classes before you get hired (this is VERY normal). This is also VERY important. Your mock class does not just determine if you will get hired, but also what your base pay will be. I have linked below a video all about payment procedure with VIP Kid.
3. You will need to find a quiet place in your house to teach, that will also be your “classroom” -this is the fun part! VIP Kid prefers that teacher have an educational background. I decorated my “classroom” with items from the dollar store and Target dollar spot.
4. You are an independent contractor with VIP Kid, which means you are responsible for your own taxes.
