Working from home with little-to-no time investment or stress outside of the 1/2 hour booking is wonderful! The hours suck (I live on the west coast) and the company isn't the best communicators. Bookings also fluctuate A LOT and there's no guarantee you fill your schedule. You also have no control over who you work with. But the work is easy and fun, there's no content development, just show up in your PJ's and hang out with kids. For the work, I think the pay is fair.
Points positifs
Work from home, no prep
Points négatifs
Not exactly an independent contractor position

If you are good at sales, you will love this job! The salary is good and you can work as per your preference. The kids are awesome and VIPKID supports their teachers well.

I have truly enjoyed my years working here. I love my students. However, this week, the company announced an overhaul of the pay structure that cuts my pay significantly. I am a single mom working four jobs. This pay cut will impact my ability to care for my family. I was accustomed to not getting raises - but a pay cut for an employee with stellar reviews is not acceptable. I am discouraged, and I feel the company does not value me as a teacher.
Points positifs
The students!
Points négatifs
Inability to cancel classes without penalty.

VIPKID is ok at best. I am putting one star because they have pulled every teacher into a new "pay schedule," beginning August 2020, and sugar coated the email to imply it was a reward. Literally every teacher has received a pay cut.

They change policies without communication. This company is a joke. They removed raises, which were hard to get in the first place and it's ridiculous. Avoid this company.and a slap in the face.

I put HOURS of my own time into VIPKid. I made a great intro video, obtained as many certifications as I could, obtained TEOSL basic and advanced, and read VIPKid blogs. I am a good teacher - great in fact - but I could not get enough bookings. I waited patiently - I am in my 8th month now - but... still not nearly enough bookings. I wrote to the company three times, but they didn't seem to care. I felt alone and under valued by VIPKid. They have tens of thousands of teachers, so why would they care about me? I don't like that kind of culture. I recently closed all my open slots and took a job with a local tutoring company. My experience with VIPKid was a total waste of time. I am hugely disappointed.

I've worked for 3 different online ESL teaching companies since Dec.2018 and VIPKid is the only company I still have remained with and will continue to do so. Although the salary is lower than the other two companies I worked for, there is a certainty regarding what is expected of teachers, the supports available to teachers, many opportunities to advance in teaching qualifications, and a payment framework that is consistent, accurate, and on time. This wasn't true with the other two companies I worked for (one company had a confusing management style that created errors in payment, schedules, and teacher expectations. The other company had poor management-teacher and management-parent communication - what they told teachers vs. what they told parents, at times was contradictory - and unfair payment methods that penalized teachers to the extreme extent). For VIPKid, there are many more pluses compared to minuses with VIPKid in comparison to the other two companies I worked for.

Teaching the kids is fun and interesting, but takes prep work even though the slides are written. The kids are very smart, driven and nice to teach.

Its a great company to work at, the self scheduling is very helpful and easy to maintain. Typical day at work starts with meeting students, talking to them about their goals for the week and the requirements they would like to fulfil.
Focus on learning but also fun so it is easier to absorb the knowledge.

I like the control of scheduling my own time in teaching. The materials are really well prepared. It’s a great job for making money on the side and you get to do it at home.

You get to teach kids English and have all the material ready for you. It's a winning business model. The kids are usually very fun to teach as well. However, there are next to no benefits like healthcare or dental.

Good stuff. No problems yet. Just really early, thats all. West is not best in this scenario. The further east you are, the better time zone you have with China. Ive never had a problem with bookings since the second week

I really enjoy this job. I feel like my own boss and I enjoy the flexibility of using my teaching skills to cover their prepared lesson. Providing student feedback doesn’t take long after the lesson. A very well-organized company! I don’t like the low pay and charges associated with accessing pay. That definitely needs improvement.

The convenience and flexibility of this job make it very tempting. They were the deciding factors for me. If one is really ambitious, you can maybe even book a couple of classes before you go to your 9-5, if you needed/wanted some padding on the income. I worked for VIPkids for a year. Over the year, I developed a pretty strong connection with some of my regular students and I really liked teaching them. The technology is cool and the platform is improving as far as teaching materials go.

However, over the course of the year - and especially towards the end of 2019 - VIPkid's policies changed. The quality of the support for teachers decreased both inside and outside the classroom. There is very little transparency in the company, I heard down the grapevine from a teacher based in China that the structure for parents also changed. I can't say for sure whether that is a direct cause, or maybe there are just way more teachers competing for classes but towards the end of 2019 there were less bookings than what I used to get on average.


There were also huge changes made in payment structure and I do not believe that VIPkid did their due diligence to make teachers realize what was happening. As a teacher in Canada I also noticed that starting around October/November I was receiving less of my pay based on the average USD conversion rate. I tried to figure out what was going on and luckily my bank was able to show me the USD amount that VIPkids was sending me from their intermediary bank stateside. It was on average $20-30 less USD than what I was invoicing. Likely, I was being

VIPKID gave me a very unique experience where I got to work from home and set my own hours. I enjoy learning the curriculum and learned a lot about teaching one on one to kids.

Pros: flexible hours, great students to teach, lessons are done for you to maintain consistency.

Cons: It took 2 years (4 contracts) to get a $0.50 raise, If you have to cancel a class with less than 24 hours notice without an acceptable reason to them (with proof to back your reason up) they deduct $10 from your paycheque, their incentives are not very motivating and the hours can be brutal after a while.

Flexibility is the main benefit. No guaranteed hours, so it's up to teachers to cultivate a following and hopefully get bookings. Not best pleased with the responses from Admin when trouble-shooting or asking for a small salary increase after 5 contracts.

VIP kid offers a great opportunity to make money from home. It's easy and the children are usually well behaved and eager to learn. However, hours are minimal unless you work at ungodly hours.

VIPKID is a cool and easy job to do from home. The interview was process is lengthy and grueling for me but I now see it was well worth the time. It can be hard to have consistent bookings and a set amount of pay each month but for its flexibility, it is hard to beat. I open my slots and teach when I need to and then I can close etc. The cancellation policy is rough but they've also got a lot of cash incentives and so that's good. Everything has its pros and cons.

I would have been working here for almost 2 years in February 2020. I have gotten $3800 CAD in a month, so you can make a good chunk. Problem is, it's not consistent. Last year October 2018 I was very busy. This year 2019,I barely got booked in October. September 2019 I got paid $2700 CAD, which is much less than $3800. have better chance bookings if peak hours opened everyday. Yoi
