The Education Department is very quick to resolve any concerns or answer questions. They really listen to their teachers! I love being a part of the company.

The community of teachers all around the world means that there is always someone who is going through what you’re going through as you prepare for you lessons.
Tresha R, VIPKID online teacher since February 2016
This year I taught with VIPKID, and it has been amazing! I get to teach, but I don't spend hours planning. The curriculum has an engaging scope and sequence. I get to teach students who are dedicated, attentive, and focused!
Jojo F, VIPKID online teacher since March 2015
I believe that VIPKID is a ‘perfect’ company. Because ‘perfection’ means always trying your best, always striving to improve, always considering the welfare and futures of our dear students and their respective families, and always promoting a better tomorrow.
Donna D, VIPKID online teacher since November 2015
