Life as an online teacher

Since January 2019 I have been working as an online ESL teacher to kids in China with the company VIPKID. I had had previous experience working with kids in a variety of settings, but I didn’t have any formal teaching certificates before getting hired. It isn’t required!

Because of this job I am now able to travel the world with financial security, and also know I’m making a difference at the same time. It’s the best!

Forbes Magazine just ranked VIPKID the #3 best remote work company to work for in 2019! It’s growing like crazy, and needs awesome people like you to jump on board!

Teaching children to speak another language is incredibly rewarding. You’re literally setting them up to have greater opportunities in life!

Many long-term teachers also build such strong relationships with their students that they even go to China to meet them! You truly become “one of the family.”

Besides knowing you’re having a real and meaningful impact on these kids, teaching them is also a hell of a lot more fun than most “adult” jobs! Imagine yourself getting to sing and use puppets and go shopping for stickers…
