VipKid 100th Class update...is it worth it?

5/30/17

And sometimes I teach as a Unicorn!

As of today I've taught 100 classes (just in the month of May)!! So is it worth it? I will say yes! I'm doing this part time (in addition to a full time job, and another part time job as an adjunct faculty at a University). So, had I been focusing on this full time and opening up more time slots, I could have made more money in May and taught even more classes.

Now, the money! WITHOUT incentives factored in, my totals today, for the 100 classes are $745.50. I still have two more days of teaching in the month, then the incentives to add in, so I anticipate being around $1000 for May...for PART TIME work! I didn't book classes for a couple of weekends, for various reasons (if I had my numbers would be even higher!)

Some other numbers for the month, I now have 32 "followers", several "regulars" that are very consistent in booking each week (some multiple times/week). The first few weeks of teaching I had mostly Trial Classes, but now I have mostly Master Classes, in fact I barely had any Trial Classes for the month of May!

If you're interested in more information I'm happy to answer questions, if you think this might be something that would interest you, you can apply HERE

Requirements:

  • Bachelors Degree (in anything)
  • Internet
  • Teaching experience (this doesn't have to be formal, get creative! Worked at a camp? This is teaching! Babysat? This is teaching! Homeschooled? This is teaching! Raised kids...this is teaching!)
  • Happy, positive, high energy!

  1. I do have a question about the recorded demo. Should I go straight into teaching or introduce myself like I'm in an interview at first? Do you have any input on that?

    1. When I did it we didn't have the option to record our demo, so I would start like you're starting a class with a new student, do a quick introduction, but with minimal language, my name is..., perhaps "what is your name" but even that might be too much.
