VIPKid provides an international learning experience to children between the age of 4 to 12 in China. They offer fully immersive one-on-one English language instructions provided online by highly qualified teachers.
Because of the high quality of education, they do require their applicants to have at least a Bachelor’s degree.
VIPKid’s curriculum team has already designed the classroom materials for every class. You can preview the class materials in the classroom on the teacher portal half a day in advance.
A class will have a guaranteed 25 minutes of teaching time, followed by a few minutes for comments. So let’s say 30 minutes per class, preparation time not included.
The recommended minimum time you should be available for classes is 7.5 hours during Beijing peak time (timetables are available on the website). You are not required to work a specific time length, but your availability in the recommended periods increases your options of being booked by students.
If you like to start teaching online, you should have access to a working computer, an internet connection, and equipment like a camera and a microphone.
They require you to give a 6-month minimum commitment, but the contract can be renewed after that period.
