Updates - Qkids Referral Policy, Daylight Saving, Tax Season

Hello teachers! 😎

Today we are going to discuss changes to the referral program. As you know, our old referral system involves recruitment, training, and a waiting period. We thought this wasn't the best to encourage your hard work, so we're making some key changes. Let's begin by defining what a successful referral is:

FYI - are you already used to the Daylight saving change?

What is a successful referral?

A referral is considered successful after they have taught their first class after the trial classes. This is a rather large change from our previous system, which had our hiring staff waiting for almost twenty classes prior their recruits being marked successful. We felt this system had too much of a waiting period and not enough transparency, so we wanted to change it to fix these issues. A lot of you requested this feedback, and we're happy to deliver.

Your referral bonus is calculated monthly and will be added directly to your monthly teacher payroll. If your contract is terminated, your referral bonus will be sent to your bank account separately. This bonus is still $100USD per successful referral, and you may refer as many teachers as you like.  

Where do I send my referrals? 

Our email for referrals is It is essential to use your new referral code when submitting your email. Sending to other emails may result in loss of tracking 😟! In order to find your new referral code, please look at the attached pictures for a guide. 

In the top left of your teacher client, you will click the Momo icon

This will open up a box that contains your referral code! 

To repeat, we are transitioning from your teacher ID to your referral code. This will allow us to more accurately organize incoming referrals and track your status! 

What are our teacher requirements? 
  • Eligible to legally work in the U.S. or Canada
  • Earned a degree or currently enrolled in a university program
  • Prior teaching experience or equivalent in education, tutoring, mentoring, schooling preferred. This can be any form of education or teaching related, such as homeschooling. 
  • Love children and teaching!

All Qkids teacher, whether current or former, can refer teachers to us. Is the schedule not working out for you currently? Taking a small hiatus but still trying to make extra income? Maybe this referral program is right for you! 

Daylight Saving change.  

And Don't Forget to adjust your alarms :)

Qkids Teacher 101 - Preparing Your Teaching Background

Preparing Your Teaching Background Hi Qkids teachers!

Hope you are having a good week. Today Momo wants to share with you some helpful tips about how to set up your awesome teaching background.
Many of you already have great props to attract students' attention; however, your teaching background is equally important since students see it for the entire class. A messy, unorganized background will not only distract students but also negatively impact your teacher rating. Your teaching style, outfit, lighting, and background all factor into your overall class rating.

Below are some points you should pay attention to if you want to improve your teaching background: 1. The room lighting must be bright enough for students to see you clearly. You should try out different angles in your room and find the sweet spot. Do not point your camera toward the ceiling or light since it will be too bright for students to look at you.
2. The ideal class background is you facing against a wall. It can …
