Working from Home

Untitled

 

I thought I would share with you all something that I do (in addition to Taylor Joelle) to earn money from home.  I’ve got a pretty sweet online teaching gig!

I teach English to Chinese students from the comfort of my own home.  The company is called VIPkid, and the headquarters are in Beijing, China. You teach English to kids between the ages of 4-12.  Classes are one-on-one and conducted online through the VIPKID portal. You DO need a bachelors degree to apply, but a teaching certificate is NOT required.

Here’s my feedback:

Pros

  • Working from home
  • Lessons are already prepared for me
  • Pay is great (about $20 per hour)
  • Very little (if any) prep work
  • I set my own hours and can work as little or as much as I want
  • The kids are adorable!!

Cons

  • Early teaching hours (you need to be in Beijing time).  Although this really is my only option since I have little ones at home. I guess it’s considered a pro as well.   I usually teach from about 5-7:30am and then sometimes on weekend evenings.
  • Interview process is a little rigorous (lots of busy work).  However, I finished the process pretty quickly.  I applied and was teaching less than a week after I applied.

Questions?

Feel free to comment with any questions.  I’d love to help you through the process.
