My first 8 weeks at VIPKID

Wow! It’s been a busy few weeks for me. After week 6 of being with VIPKID, I am now officially 100% booked for all the times I have open. I do mean all the times.  

I’ve noticed that even times that are not peak are now getting booked. This makes me thrilled. I have about 500 followers (students/parents) I wish I knew who they all were; that is a lot of people I may add.  I have about 2300 minutes under my belt and 91 classes completed. 

Did I mention the pay is great, too?! For the month of May I’ll will have about $600 made. I’m thrilled. That’s working 2 hours, 3 days a week, 1 day 1 1/2 hours, and my Fridays are my happy days, because I work 1 1/2 hours in the morning and 1 1/2 hours at night. I’m loving it! I don’t need to do that much, but I felt like challenging myself just alittle bit to see how much I can actually make. I’m pretty happy. But I just saw the newsletter today and they mentioned things are going to change a bit as summer comes into play. I’m hoping it doesn’t cramp my style, because I’m getting use to my schedule and I’m having fun! We’ll see. Come join me if you are interested.

In the mean time, I’ve only had a repeat of 10 classes. I’m creating a special database for myself for the lessons and materials. I have fun printing out the materials and studying them later on. I have a digital and physical database. Never know if or when you may not have Internet.

I love the app for iOS, too. It is awesome. You can see all the PPTs on the screen up to two weeks in advance. This is a great improvement. I’m sort of addicted to the app, so that can be a slight problem. I’m trying to train myself just to look at it three to four times a day instead of my 20.. 🙂 It fun to see how many people are following you and who has given you comments. I’m proud of myself I have a rating of 5 apples constantly. I probably give more A game to those kids that seem more energetic than others. Because they ones that are harder sort of make you fizz to nothing, unless it is a real bully that decides he will just sit there with a grimace on his face. Then I’ll up the happiness to max. That drives them nuts because they are mad they are upsetting you. Love it! Yeah, I’m weird, but it’s the challenge of it.

I’m enjoying this teaching job. I have to say some days do get discouraging when students are difficult or you find other teachers haven’t been doing there job. But I’ll say out of the 66 kids I’ve taught so far only a handful have been challenging. I hate the ones that roll their eyes, pretend they are asleep, or play with their gum on screen. The jumpy ones too. I love my Pre-VIPs, too they are fun.

So much to say, but I’ll save it for another posting. I’m glad you stopped by and I hope to see you soon. 🙂

Good bye for now…
