- Success Stories
Hello!! I am Teacher Brittany and I started my VIPKid journey because I was in desperate need of a life change. My hubby is a grad student so I needed something that could support both of us and our fur babies.
I live in a rural area where there aren’t a lot of jobs available and my degree is a Master’s in Library and Information Sciences. There are not many full time library jobs in rural areas. I had started looking at jobs 4 hours away from my home! That was just not possible!
Then someone told me about VIPKid and yes I was skeptical at first. Work from home, make your own schedule, you can wear your pajamas (lol) blah blah blah. But really it is true! I am able to work part time at a Library (using my degree, ya!) and work as many hours as I need with VIPKid. I literally make my own schedule, work when and where I want, and am my own boss!
VIPKid has allowed me to be flexible in my schedule while allowing me to do things I haven’t been able to in a long while. For once my hubby and I can be on the same schedule! I have time to see family and explore with friends! My fur babies are no longer alone for 8+ hours a day and they (and my hubby) are so much happier that I am able to be at home more. Literally the best thing that has happened to us!
“VIPKid has changed my life in so many unexpected ways. When I first applied for VIPKid,I was working full time as a nanny knowing that the family I worked for would soon outgrow me, and didn’t really have a plan for what was next. I was skeptical when I saw Simone post about it, but decided to give it a shot. To say it lit a fire within me would be an understatement. I found a passion for teaching, and connected with my students from thousands of miles away. I was able to teach throughout my cross country move and decided to channel my newfound passion for teaching into a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. Thanks to the extra income from VIPKid, I’m able to work part time as an assistant teacher—a job I got in part due to my experience teaching with VIPKid– while focusing on graduate school.”
“VIPKID has made it possible for me to live in Belize. I knew that in order for me to stay here I would need to find some sort of remote work. Having always loved working with kids, it seemed like the perfect fit. Now having taught with VIPKID for 3 months, I can truly say it’s been a blessing.”
Vipkid is seriously living up to its hype. I stumbled across this online one day, randomly, and I’m a very skeptical person as many others are. I just happened to take a risk by jumping in with both feet- I tried it and it’s paid off literally! I’ve had a great support system within the company that has helped guide me toward success as well. I have been a stay-at-home mom for six years now and we have been a one income family during that time. It is nice to have a paycheck coming in now! VIP kid has been everything it says it is- it has allowed me to set my own schedule get paid for it and be proud of what I’m doing investing in other children. It’s not a get rich quick scheme, you have to work for it, like any real job. The difference is, I love what I’m doing and it doesn’t feel like a job. I work at it because I love to teach and teach kids. You will get out of it wat you put in, and I’m living proof of that!
As a writer, I’ve often struggled with finding the time and energy for my craft while working one or more jobs, navigating others’ schedules, balancing exhaustion with the need to pay rent, coming home sad and uninspired—that whole too-familiar story. VIPKID allows me the opportunity to schedule work around my writing, which is a blessing in itself. And doing work I love, no less! I adore each and every one of my students. I’m perpetually in awe of the fact that I can wake up every morning and, before breakfast, reach out and connect with a child on the other end of the world. These kinds of connections are what made me fall in love with teaching in the first place, and to have the ability to forge them without even leaving the house is just unreal. By 10 a.m., I’m finished with classes and my heart is full. I have the whole day ahead to write or read or teach at my second job or just do whatever the heck I want while not stressing out about money. It’s the best!
“Let me count the ways that VIPKID has changed my life….
First, it gave me my spark back 🌟! I am a retired elementary teacher and missed teaching so much. This is the best of both worlds. I was able to retire/keep a foot in the teaching world that I crave.
Second, the extra income has allowed my husband and I to do few weekend get-aways. I am thankful to have the income to travel and have time off. I also just put a downpayment on cabins in the Adirondacks for next year.
Our five kids and their families will get a treat vacation thanks to VIPKID income.
Third, I have the ability to watch one of my grandkids while still having a flexible work schedule. When she comes, I don’t open slots for the times that she is here.
It’s a win, win, win for me! I absolutely 💜 love VIPKID! This company listens to the teachers and is slowly evolving to make the program the best it can be through: trainings, updates, apps, etc. I’m a happy camper-can you tell!!”
VIPKID has changed my life by letting me work from home doing what I love, teaching, while being at home with my family.
