I was sent an email to do the express interview and quiz.
10 things you need to check before signing a contract - Graduateland
In the training for vipkid the questions on the quiz are directly from that so as long as you go through the training in the teachers academy you can even have that tab open while you do it it should give you the answers you need. Are they accepting of individuals who like to take a yearly winter break, spring break, fall break, a short summer break? Or is it a contract where you select your daily work week and that is set in stone until your six month contract is up? You can work as little or as much as you want. The hours are not set in stone — most of the time I open up slots the week of, sometimes even day of!
You can see more about the current hiring process on my updated post: wanderdolls. I have a quick question, I know this is a contract position for only 6 months, is it possible to renew or extend your contract? It just pops up when the end of the contract is approaching to re-sign with them. I have a college diploma in broadcasting. Have you heard of others getting through with a diploma vs. I think it would really depend on who you get on their end reviewing your application and the wording on your diploma. Hi dear, I got accepted for an interview. Mine was done via skype — you should receive instructions with your email regarding who to add and how to proceed.
To apply, no. Once teaching its really up to your teaching style for if you want props, but there is no required investment. I recently joined Magic Ears as well, they are a newer company but they pay a little more and the classes are group classes. Hey Stephen! As for the bubbly personality, you should still be fine. In the current interview process you get approved for either lower levels OR mid-upper levels often not both initially.
The only downside of that is that it can be detrimental to your bookings as the vast majority of students are level 2 and aged Glad you found it helpful Emma. It takes some time to build up a network of regular students and to get up enough of a ranking to be continually booked. If you attend the Kickoff Meeting, it helps to download ALL linked material in your email, because the new and old trial class info is covered there. You need, need, NEED this for the quiz. I would have that open in a tab at all times, for study, the quiz, and probably for the first week of teaching.

I came to appreciate the info more and more as I had to study for the quiz! There is an attendance form attached to a quiz you need to pass. It was actually prep for teaching trial classes, which I really appreciate. I am a newbee, hired 4 days ago. I need to change my video and feel ridiculous but I cannot figure out how.. There are so many things left uncovered in the training or that can be hard to find initially. I find the easiest way to change your video is to email education or from the app.
Her pros and cons are essentially the same ones mentioned on Indeed and Glassdoor. Two additional cons she mentions is that instructions can sometimes be unclear and younger students have difficulty focusing. Overall, she gives the job very positive feedback and enjoys it.

Does one need a 4 year degree? I am both a psych nurse with a 2 year degree and a paralegal. I also have 6 grandchildren whom I have taken great joy in teaching all manner of things. Thanks for this post! Can you shed some light on how taxes work with VIP kids? How much do you set aside to pay for them at the end of the year?
Taxes are different for each person. I would suggest at the very least having a consultation with an accountant to determine your tax obligations. Thanks for this great review!
I just completed my interview today after signing up yesterday through your link. My interviewer had a 10 minute delay, so we started 10 minutes late; and then told me I had 10 minutes total to do the demo, and that I needed to do 1 minute per slide!
Before feedback, she told me her time was up with me and that she needed to hop off and tell her next call that she would be late, but it almost seemed like she forgot she started 10 minutes late with me?? She emphasized that I needed more stuffed animal props even though it was advised to have the basic white board and flash cards, but to wait till after hire to get a detailed list.
I got my email less than an hour later, telling me I did amazing, with my grade, detailed feedback, and that they would love to continue working. Glad you liked the content. What a wonderfully informative blog. I am currently training to be a commercial pilot over the next two years and am considering VIPKID as a source of income during this time. My mother was an English teacher, consequently, my accent can only be described as soft West London stereotypical James Bold type accent.
Would this be a hindrance, due to the company preference of North American or European International School accents? I do not have any teaching qualifications, however, I have mentored under privelidged children, coached sports teams and privately tutored whilst at school and only mathematics. I do not have a degree unable to complete due to family bereavement but did attend a very prestigious University in the UK for 2 years.
Would this be enough academically? Did you encounter any issues getting your direct payments set up? Nope, no issues. Make sure you send VIPKid all the info. Thank you for posting this! I recently got interested in doing this, and planning on doing it. If I have any questions, may I ping you?

I did it on the same day, June 2, until July 6th. On that day, I did my demo and I aced it. I was sent with the email that I did it on July 7th.
