Interview Method 1
It's a 10 minute video recorded on the teacher portal. It's recommended entering the "practice room" and get familiar with interactive features, mirrored camera, and TPR. You are expected to teach the class to an imaginary student displaying online teaching techniques. Your Recorded Demo Lesson submission will influence your base pay, this is how much you get paid per class. You can make US $18-22/hr. Teaching experience or certificate may boost your pay offer.
Interview Method 2
It's a 30 minute interview with a VIPKid staff who will play the role of a student. You may receive the same material of Method 1 (always check). Your Live Demo Lesson will determine your base pay, this is how much you get paid per class. In an hour you can make US $18-22. Your teaching experience and any teaching certificates may boost your pay offer.
Express Interview Demo Lesson (Easiest)
It's all about recording a 3 minute demo lesson teaching BICYCLE, MOUSE and MONKEY using proper online teaching techniques. Good Position and Lightning are very important for the recording. Your Express Interview video may influence your base pay, this is how much you get paid per class. In an hour you can make US $18-22. Any teaching experience and /or teaching certificates may boost your pay offer. The video must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Results will be provided in 48 hrs.

What if I don't have a Bachelor's Degree?
VIPKid Teachers must have a Bachelor's Degree (in any field). This is compulsory.
I will follow your hiring process, provide training and support during the interview, demo lesson, and mock classes (certifications). Once hired, I will share tips on how to build a steady student pool and opportunities that may present in the calendar year. There are incentives associated with recruiting successful teachers. These are individuals who have been hired and have taught their first class. Once you are in, you can start referring yourself.
Do you have sample videos?
Yes, I do. Check out my YouTube channel @VIPKidESLTeacher. Many tutorials are provided by VIPKid when you sign up and pass the Basic Info step.
What if I am not hired?
You may re-apply using a different email address, but most importantly, try applying again after spending time developing those skills that VIPKid suggested to strengthen. Coaching times are available upon request. Send me an email to for more details.
