I speak fluent English and have been lecturing under graduate students at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. But I do not have an American accent. Is an American accent integral to this job?

No, and they have time requirements

Actually - to the person who stated that there was a requirement of minimum hours a week - that is incorrect. When I was hired, they required at least 15 TIME SLOTS open which is 7.5 hours. NOT 15 hours a week. Now - there is NO minimum - at all. NONE.
There is a vacation policy and it isn't vague. You can take 2 weeks - at different times. Not sure how this was confusing.

As of Jan 2017, there is NO minimum and you are unlimited in hours to work. I started in January 2017 and had 9 students. (Chinese New Year is a big deal). Feb I had 18 students (still on holidays) and in March 2017 I had 129 students. I made 1,290 for the month of March - plus $15 extra for having 3 kids sign up for VIPKID through the trial program. I opened time slots and they filled up nicely. I have worked 8 hours on a Friday and Saturday. Love the job. I can stay home with kiddo and make money. No brainer.
