A Great, Part-Time Job for Stay-at-home moms
Teacher (Current Employee) – United States – October 23, 2018
I'm an at-home mom and also home school, and I needed something that would allow me to devote time to my children and also earn a little extra money. For that reason, VIPKID has been a dream come true. No, I would not be able to support myself on my earnings, but I also work less than 15 hours per week. I have heard of people making a living at VIPKID, but they had to work seven days a week, as well as in the evenings on weekends. I want a life as well as an income, so I limit my schedule.
For a job with no commute, that you can do from home on your computer in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms, this is a great gig. The kids are adorable and mostly well-behaved. The company provides a ton of free training.
On the downside, you do have to market yourself, as you are chosen by parents who look at your bio and introductory video. There is a huge learning curve, but I enjoyed (and still do enjoy) the challenge of it all.
The best job I ever had. I highly recommend it.
Flexible schedule, work at home
