I work from home!
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I started looking for a work-at-home job. Child care was expensive, and I wanted to be home with my little girl. I tried a lot of different things, but finally landed at VIPKID.
VIPKID is a Chinese company that hires men and women with a neutral accent (generally from America or Canada) to teach English to kids in China. They provide the platform (like Skype, but interactive) and the curriculum. *All* we have to do is guide 5-12 year-olds through the content, correcting as we go.
I’ve been with VIPKID for two years now, and I’m in love. The company is young (founded in 2013) and I’ve seen it grow exponentially in just two years. When I started, there were approximately 10,000 teachers and 30,000 students. Today there are over 45,000 teachers, and last I heard there were over 500,000 students. They want to spread good education around the globe, and I support that goal 110%.

I felt so lost and completely freaked out when I finished my degree and realized I didn’t love my work. I was heartbroken, and depressed thinking that the only work-at-home options were transcription (I’m horrendous at transcription) or selling products to my friends and family (I have zero follow-through on that one). I also know that navigating how to work with a Chinese company from home can be frustrating and lonely. I want to help you! I want you to know that there are options, and that you’re not the only one! I want to give you ideas, and hope for a brighter financial future!
