I recently onboarded with VIP Kid to make some extra money teaching English to children in China. I had heard of it, but the push to sign up happened for two reasons: 1) we had recently looked at our budget and needed some extra money for some projects, and 2) I had a friend who signed up and she was able to explain the entire thing to me.

It was a process to get started with them.  You signed up online, did a short video and then waited. Then they invited you to do a demo class. I took an online webinar to learn more about the process (they have a very particular way of teaching their material), and then I had to try THREE TIMES to pass the demo class. But I did!

You teach classes one-on-one to kids in China. VIP Kid gives you all the materials- but you do have to set up your “classroom” area in your home, have a headset, a computer with a webcam, and then have some stuff to help teach (like a puppet and some props to go along with the lesson- which are easy because we have so many toys around our house).

I taught 7 classes my first week! It’s been mostly fun (a couple kids have seemed really disinterested, which makes me sad. Their parents make them learn English, but one girl was so busy doing homework, she wasn’t very engaged. I hated that they were so busy and pushed).

The classes happen late at night/early in the morning, since they are live, to go along with Beijing after-school time.  My prime time slots have been 4-5 a.m.

I am a morning person, so I don’t really mind it.  I hope this helps me earn some extra money for our family.
