Do I need teaching experience or a teaching certificate?

Yes. You need some teaching experience to be considered. It seems like they want individuals who have at least an academic year worth of teaching experience. No. You don’t need a certificate, but I’m sure that would help your chances of getting hired.

What’s the schedule like?

You choose your scheudle! As of December 2016, there is no longer a minimum number of hour required to work.  The teaching hours are from 9 am to 10 pm Beijing time.

How long is the contract?

6 months

Do I get time off?

You choose your schedule. You still will want to contact VIPKID and let them know when you go on vacation. 

Do I have to teach from the United States?

No! That’s the best part. You can teach anywhere in the world as long as you have stable internet connection. This is a great opportunity for those of us who like to travel.

Do you have any tips?

Yes! Make sure your cv is on point! I can’t emphasize enough the importance of a good cv. If you are really interested, send me an email! I don’t mind helping you put together a solid cv and helping you prepare for the interview. I can help you get the highest pay. My email is: danielceballos400@gmail.com

When do I get paid?

You get paid monthly. It usually gets into my bank by the 15th of each month.

How much do you make?

I make $20 USD and hour but that ranges between teachers. Expect to get started at around $18-$21 USD per hour. Not bad for working in your pj’s, right?
