VIPKID is a private online educational company that offers an American education elementary experience to Chinese students. VIPKID was first founded in 2013 and has since grown to have over 7,000 teachers and 500,000 students. 

Classroom Experience 

Each class is one-to-one and is roughly 25-30 minutes. Teachers and students are provided with the lesson prior to teaching. In each class there is a teacher, student, and an interactive slide. Teachers read the instructions on each slide and interact with students throughout the lesson. 


Pay Scale

The VIPKID pay is great! Average teachers make around $20 USD an hour. They start their teachers off at $7-$9 USD per 25 min class. They also have bonuses for completing your class and for showing up to class. The bonus for showing up to class (attendance) and for finish the class is $1 dollar each per class (which means an additional $2 dollars per class).  So, if you show up, teach the class, and finish the class, that averages out to $9-$11 USD per class and $18-$22 per hour! Not bad for working in pj’s and at home, right?

Getting Hired

Many teachers mess up their opportunity even before they apply. The main reason I see teachers get turned down because of their resume! When considering applicants, VIPKID looks for a specific information such as teaching experience, and an education level. Clean up your cv before you consider applying, it might prevent you from getting denied.

Land an Interview

I have been with the company for a long time now and have helped dozens of teachers get hired. If you are interested in working for VIPKID, send me an email at I don’t mind helping you put together a killer cv along with helping you through the interview process and answer any questions you might have. The company is awesome and a true blessing. I try and tell every teacher I know about them. Join the team!
