VIPKid: Teacher Tags

The Truth about Teacher Tags VIPKid does not assign any bad teacher tags. It used to be that we could not see our tags at all until submitting a ticket. Finally, after all this time, VIPKid has made it possible to see all the tags given to us by a Mock Class Mentor and the […]

Grading and Evaluating: A VIPKid Feedback Post

One thing that really stands out about VIPKid is the fairness of the hiring process.
