Hello teachers to be! Congratulations to all of our new recruits on passing the interview. Now it is time to pass your Mock Class! The most important thing to remember is to have fun; the second most important thing to remember is to finish the class….make it through all of the slides without rushing -about 1 minute per slide. If you move faster be prepared to engage with the student at the end…play tic-tac-toe, teach an additional letter sound or how to pronounce teacher or computer or mouse….
If you just happened to come across this post and haven’t yet started the application process, we can help. If you have your bachelor’s degree, can work in US/Canada, and speak English with a North American accent, contact us. We will help you through the entire process and help you navigate VIPKid after you get hired.

Now here is what you need to do in the process of having fun and making it to the end of the mock class.
Use the same tips from the Demo:
- Total Physical Response (TPR) – use your hands and facial expressions a lot; hand to ear when you want them to talk, point at your mouth when you model how to say a word or sound…
- Teach the teaching objectives. Don’t get sidetracked if the student is acting poorly or is overly happy.
- Modeling & Repetition – say what you want them to say and then have them repeat it at least two times (be sure to finish the lesson – by all means though)
- Speaking speed and clarity – speak clearly and slowly when you model.
