Who We Are
VIPKID provides an international learning experience to Chinese children – all from the comfort of their homes. Our sophisticated virtual classroom streams passionate, qualified teachers into Chinese homes, linking the world through education.
What We Believe
We believe that there is a better,
more effective way to teach a foreign language: through curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity.
What We Do
We provide 1-on-1 online full immersion language and content classes based on the US Common Core State Standards.
Choose your own schedule, decent pay, paid for student "no shows," working with kids! The company does do incentives but they aren't guaranteed (most haven't been geared towards me, but I still appreciate what I have been given)! They provide all the content. The mobile app is pretty convenient. I work part time (15 classes a week) because I'm a stay at home mom. It has been a good experience overall.
Work from home (in your pajamas). Great starting pay (plus additional bonuses for short notice classes, new student enrollment, and teacher referrals). Create your own hours (as of Feb. 2017, they no longer require a minimum of 7.5 hours/week). The kids are adorable (for the most part). It's exciting to be part of such a new and successful company. Rewarding field. All you have to do is teach, there is no lesson prep or homework grading. Classes are fast paced and go by quickl. Teacher community + comradery. I feel valued + respected. Fun competitions and other ways to win money/prizes. It is competitive and difficult to get hired (this isn't necessarily a con, you want them to be picky and selective about who their teachers are... it makes sense), only about 10% of applicants get hired. Depending on your time zone, you may have to wake up at odd hours in order to get booked. Upon being hired, it takes some time for your schedule to fill up.
Denotes a Certified Age Friendly Employer
Please click here to send us feedback.
After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
