Online ESL Teacher

Kelly McCrea

Several years ago, my husband lost a job he had held for 12 years. To help provide for our family, I began teaching 4- to 16-year-olds how to speak English through an online platform called VIPKid. I make my own hours, which means I can work in the very early mornings, leaving the rest of the day to focus, with my husband, on our other home-based business of online resale. I’m earning decent money, and I have the freedom to be a mom to my large family.

My online teaching income kept food on our table and gave me the opportunity to grow into a career field that I’m passionate about.

What I want lawmakers to know: I am not exploited. Please don’t make it even harder on us to live and work here.
