5 Hours of Teaching! 10 classes back to back. Teaching to the Level

I teach 10 classes each morning (in the winter months) and 12 in the summer.  I love getting in as many classes as I can each week.  I flex my weekend schedule but my M-F looks the same each week.  I keep the consistency and the kids consistently come.  It’s a win/win.

 

Check out my newest video about teaching 10 classes.  It’s a casual video about my morning and how I adjust to each student.  If you are interested in applying to become a teacher with VIPKID  please reach out to me.  I’d love to help you.  You don’t have to teach as many classes as I do to be successful.  You can do as many or as few as you would like.  We have teachers with extremely different styles and schedules.  It’s the beauty of our company.  If you would like help with the process click  here

VIPKID Teacher Happiness

I am a happy VIPKID teacher. YES there are always things that can make me frustrated at any job. Sure, there are things that I don’t understand. I chose, though, to think well of my coworkers and teaching community. I have so many new friends as a result of my job working with VIPKID. I have loved my time here and will continue to work for, promote and advance the company. I am here to say VIPKID is an excellent company to work for and represent. Come join me. Feel free to appy here.  I will gladly help you work through the process of becoming a VIPKID teacher.  We have a wonderful, vibrant teaching community where you can find help and support.

 

VIPKID A Year + and Still Going Strong

I’ve been with VIPKID for over a year now.  I have taught  63,425 minutes.  Yep, I kinda like the sound of that.  It sounds so big 🙂  VIPKID has become a big part of my life.  I wear orange all the time.  I even sleep in my orange shirt.  Ok, that’s just because it makes 3AM wake ups a little easier.  I have tried every scheduling option I can think of and I’m still tweaking it.  I have taught anywhere from 48 to 100 classes a week.  I’ve tried mornings and evenings.  I teach some Friday nights and some Saturday nights.  I don’t always do the same thing each week.  I took this job for the flexibility and have tested it on every level.

I take vacations now.  I have the money to take nice vacations.  I can travel and work, or just hang up my orange shirt for the week and enjoy.  I’ve done both.  I work hard in the mornings and then go about my day in the afternoons.  I make a great income so that I can do what I want to do.  Sometimes I pay bills with my money, sometimes I save it and sometimes I just take a day off and get a nice massage.  VIPKID has helped me reach goals.  VIPKID has made it possible for me (and my husband as well) to set our priorities and have wiggle room in our budget.  I am now able to take vacation time when my husband does.  He has more available vacation time with his work but now that I am working for VIPKID I can join him.  We love it.

 

I set up a studio in my basement.  I go there every morning and teach 10-12 classes.  When I turn off the lights, at the end of my classes, I have the rest of the day to be present in the lives of my children.  At the end of the month I always have a nice paycheck that goes directly into my account.

During my time with VIPKID I have been fully booked and never have time slots go unfilled.  I am able to open weekends or chose to not.  I am able to see so many students week after week.  I track their progress.  I see their growth. It means so much to me to watch them grow up right before my eyes week after week.

My first full week at VIPKID I taught a set of twins.  About a month ago I did their Unit Assessments.  It made me a little emotional when I finished their classes that day.  You see, that mom took a chance on me as a brand new teacher for VIPKID.  A whole year later and I’m still teaching her twin boys.  They greet me with “hello teacher I have missed you this week”.  Their English is improving.  They are getting taller.  They are maturing.  Most importantly, though, they are growing dearer and dearer to my heart.    Thank you, mom,  for choosing me and accepting me as I learned to teach in the online platform.  You have given me a very special gift; the opportunity to spend time with your sweet boys and be their teacher.  What an honor it has been.  My  journey continues.  Come join me!

For more information email me at this email address .  If  you want to apply go ahead and use this link  I will be notified when you sign up.  I will gladly help you join me in reaching into the hearts and lives of some wonderful students on the other side of the globe.
