Life as a Qkids Teacher (Ft. Jaclyn)

Hello everyone 😏! Today we wanted to introduce one of our newer teachers and get her perspective on how she feels about Qkids. Meet Jaclyn 😎!

Recently, I came across an advertisement on Craigslist.org for Qkids I thought it was too good to be true. ‘Online ESL teacher pays $20 an hour’
I did my due diligence and researched the company. Yes, the job is real and right up my alley as a former English and ESL teacher. I applied and sent in my minute-long demo. Qkids responded quickly and I was scheduled within a week. The process was clear and smooth and only took a few weeks from start to finish. I couldn’t wait to begin my classes.

Qkids Bootcamp -- Our Teachers First Trip!

Hello everyone!
By now you may have heard the announcement:
That's right. We're doing it again. But this time it's going to be biggerbetter, and more inclusive than before! To let you guys know what's going on, we wanted to write about our prior camp experience and how it shaped us as a company.
To begin, we began our company in 2015 with the idea of creating a vibrant, online atmosphere where kids and teachers could grow. We wanted to have a mutual understanding experience where thriving was easy and learning was facilitated with fun. So, Qkids was created.
As we continued to grow and heard feedback from our parents and students about wanting to have a closer experience, we thought of the idea of bringing over teachers to try a camp-like experience. This would include offline, in-person classrooms and fun activities. Our goal was to strengthen the connection between Qkids teachers and students, whilst integrating Chinese and North American culture. There were a lot of l…
