My First Month Working From Home (VIPKID)

So, I have spent the last month working from home on VIPKID.  It has been a great way to make money.  This month will be over in a week and I have made $600.  Next month, I hope to make about $1,000.  I have never worked from home before.  I was a bit skeptical at first.  But, it has been fantastic!  I have been loving working from home so far.

I have a 4 month old puppy that can only be crated an hour or two at a time.  It is great because I can be at home with her and work with her out of the crate when I teach.  I work early in the morning (I was NEVER a morning person), but between my puppy and this job-I have recently become a morning person.

The best part of working all morning is that you entire work day is over at 10 a.m.  The rest of the day, I can go to the gym, dog park, run errands, go to doctor appointments, and even take a nap!  It is a very freeing feeling.

With the new office in our new house, I have been able to comfortably set up a work space and work from home with ease.  I have everything I need on the desk and I keep it set up all week long.  I love having an office space-the desk even faces the windows.  It is a very relaxing and quite environment to work in.

Working from home has been a great extension of my teaching career and my work/life balance is amazing!  I am surprised about how much I am enjoying it!

Traveling Teacher

I have been teaching for about 6 years.  In this time, I have worked in 4 different states and all different positions.  It is always so difficult to have to quit and start at square one each time we move.  It is also difficult to get into a school system when you have to put your time in substituting and waiting to get a job.  Once I have spent time substituting and I finally get a job, I only have about a year before I have to move and do it all over again.  This can become daunting.

I have figured out with this move that I need to figure out a better career for myself.  I have done research and found online teaching in China is really the best way to continue my career in education.  Since I can work from home, it doesn’t matter where I am living or how often I move.  This is an amazing side hustle for any teacher looking to make a little extra money and this also works as a full-time teaching job!
