Haha. Are you in some VIPKID Facebook groups? Those have been really helpful for me.

Itís been great for me. We moved and I started at a new school in August, it was a nightmare and I resigned at the end of October. I eventually got a low paying ďday jobĒ and then I remembered VIPKID. So now I do that in the mornings, then go to work. Iíll quit the day job at the end of May so I will just do VIPKID and be able to stay home with my boys. There are lots of people that do VIPKid and have classroom jobs, but that wouldíve been too much for me. The hiring process can be tricky, but once youíre hired itís pretty easy. Feel free to message me if you have other questions.

I teach online to kids in China as well, but I donít work for VIPkid. I work for DaDaABC, PalFish, and have worked for BlingAbc and UUAbc.

I honestly would like to do it full time but my husband won't let me. I have four years till retirement and he wants me to stick it out. I love my district and have had a great school year, just kind of burned out with it.

I've thought about trying out for this too, but I don't like the working odd hours of the wee morning thing about it.

I did it for a year and a half. The hours get old real fast. I did not renew my contract with them. It also was not worth the money with the tax bracket dh and I are in. I HIGHLY suggest speaking to a tax person BEFORE agreeing to do this. For me, it just wasn't worth it.
