English Teacher in Remote

It was good
Not a terrible company to work for but the pay is very low. You get to make your own schedule and essentially be your own manager whoch is great! Only thing I didn't like was their punitive absence policy. If you need to cancel a class with short notice you have to pay $10 when you are only making $7 per class. Also once the new.regulations with China came about and the Global platform was set up there were no students to teach anymore.

It's good when you need it.
When there is nothing else and you want to work from home, this is an amazing opportunity to have. I keep renewing my contract even though I haven't taught for over a year just to have the option.

fun workshops for CE Great Students Wierd hours
I loved teaching the students I had, but hours were from 3 am to 6 am and it was very difficult to achieve a work-life balance. I loved the curriculum and the teaching of it was fun- plenty of tips from experienced teachers.

VIPKid offers an easy way to make some extra money. You are your own boss, both good and bad. Must be in China to teach.
Foreign teachers no longer allowed to teach English online. This job is basically non-existent now.Most of the students were amazing (not all. Had some instances of inappropriate behaviour/nudity). You are on your own, both good and bad. HR not beneficial. Learn to pseudo-lawyer (e.g., record your presence at the start - and finish - of every lesson to prove you were truly there for the scheduled time, so you will be paid). Strengthen your skills in various functions while working online.

Restricted by CCP
Currently restricted by CCP. Trying to launch global platform. New platform may not have staying power. Old compensation reasonable. New compensation just okay. Okay side hustle. Wonderful kids and decent materials.
