Who We Are
VIPKid connects children in China with the world’s best teachers for real-time one-to-one online English immersion learning. Simply said, we allow teachers to change kids’ lives without uprooting their own. A global education company, our mission is to inspire and empower every child for the future. Founded in 2013 and formally launched in 2014 afer a year of pilotng and curriculum development, we have become China’s market-leading educaton startup, with offices in both China and the US.
What Inspires Us
Our founders worked as both educators and administrators for decades prior to founding VIPKid. We’ve taken those experiences – as well as our passion for motvating and engaging young learners - with us to our work at VIPKid. We aim to provide a truly global educaton – and with teachers and students all over the world, we're able to deliver exactly that. Our technology enables personalized learning and a connection between teachers and students across the world.
Our Philosophy (and Philanthropy)
One of our core beliefs is that every teacher, student and employee who works with VIPKid has a need to learn (and keep learning). And since there’s no one-size-fits-all for education, we’re constantly exploring ways to spark curiosity and create more opportunites to grow. As such we base our curriculum on a progressive pedagogy but we also put our ideals into action. In additon to our 300,000 paying students we support 300 low-income rural schools in China through our Rural Education Prooect. This program provides free English classes to students, helping improve even more lives.
