If you’ve already applied and did not use a referral code or link, I can help you more if you add my code to your application. You can do so by going on the VIPKID website where you signed up (the portal) and clicking on “My Account” in the top right corner. There is a place there to add a code from a referring teacher. Please enter code PENNY0008 (Penny zero zero zero 8).
Once you do this, let me know and I will send you more information to help you through each step.
If you already used a referral code or link but they are not helping you, you can’t switch but you can create a new account. Use a new email address and phone number and my link so I can help you! As my referral, you get my personalized help, access to private coaching sessions and to the exclusive VIPKID Bootcamp on my website with extensive training materials to help you through the process.
On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, I woke up like any normal day to teach my VIPKid classes. I stumbled out of bed, found my orange t-shirt, and grabbed my phone. There was a Facebook message there from a teacher that I helped get hired that said “Congratulations!”
It had a screenshot of something with my teacher name on it, Penny JT, and Top Community Contributor. I little voice in the back of my head starts saying, “Could it be?”
VIPKid has a contest twice a year and sends 10 teachers to China. You can win for several categories and I knew I had won for my state for helping other teachers get hired, but I definitely did not win overall.
I ran to my office to see what this really is, start looking at email on my phone and see an email that says, “Congrats, you won a trip to China!”
It was real! I had been chosen by my fellow teachers as a “Top Community Contributor” so I’m heading to China August 14-22!
There will be 10 of us traveling together. Stay tuned here to my blog for all the excitement and fun about my trip to China to meet the VIPKid staff, my students, and to explore Beijing!
