My Journey to Becoming a VIPKID Teacher
Because of my love for music (and degree in Music Industry Studies) Sasha and I tried to move to Nashville in 2009.
We lived in a friend’s attic. We searched for jobs for six months. Not a nibble. We scraped by on food stamps. Then, our house and car were robbed. It was miserable. Everything that could've gone wrong, did go wrong.
So we bought one-way flights to Beijing, China to try teaching ESL (English as a second language). As it turned out, I really enjoyed teaching and actually excelled at it....something I would have never imagined just a few years before.
But after many short trips, the desire to travel for longer periods of time became stronger and stronger.
I had heard about teaching online and had reached out to a few companies but hadn't heard anything back.
Finally, in spring 2016, I saw an ad for VIPKID from someone in a Facebook group. I read up on what they offered and though it sounded too good to be true. But I was qualified so I sent in my application.
The next morning, I had an email inviting me to an interview! I went through the process and about 2 weeks later, I was teaching cute little Chinese kids through a computer screen.
Once I successfully completed my first contract, I signed on for a second six months and Sasha also applied and got the job!
Now, 3 years later, we've been able to live in Mexico and travel when and where we want without having to ask a boss for permission thanks to their flexible schedule.
I can help you do the same. I have successfully coached several people through the process.
That's why I made this course, to give the same tips I've given to all my successful referrals.

"Rachel’s Get Hired for VIPKID course was very helpful during the process of going through mock classes. She gave lots of detailed advice and tips that I wasn’t able to find in other videos. Many of the tips she gave were mentioned by my mock class mentors and I was glad I knew about them ahead of time. Her videos helped me understand the difference between the lower level and upper level mock classes. Rachel was also available to email or talk to me when ever I had a questions, which was often! She was so supportive and helpful! I am so glad I had her help through the process!"
