How Much Does Qkids Pay?

“How much does Qkids pay?”

Many new Qkids applicants ask this question. Today I hope to answer that question and also expand on the details of what a Qkids teacher makes and the various ways teachers can earn with the company. There are three factors that go into Qkids pay rate. For those looking to go ahead and apply, CLICK HERE.

Qkids Base Pay

The base pay for teaching classes is 8 dollars per class. The classes last anywhere from 24-28 minutes, depending on the type of class the teacher is assigned to teach, plus the mandatory report at the very end. Teachers can teach 2 classes per hour. This equates to $16 per hour. This rate sounds much different to the 20 dollars that is often advertised on other sites. However, other aspects are factored in for additional money. Read on to find out other areas in which a teacher is paid.

Qkids Attendance Pay

A teacher is awarded for attendance. If teachers work a minimum of 15 classes per week, they are eligible for a $1 dollar bonus for each class worked. A 12-class minimum is required to hold a teaching position, but 15 classes are required to receive the attendance bonus.

Qkids Performance Pay

Teachers are rated based on a list of criteria by parents and class coordination. If a teacher is rated high, then a dollar bonus is given for each successful class. If for whatever reason a teacher is rated lower than the standard, his/her pay will exclude the dollar bonus. Potential teachers should not let this part deter them is they wish to apply. In my experience with the company, there have only been a few instances in which I have not received an attendance bonus for a class. I have used the feedback as a growth opportunity and have never taken it personally.

Base pay, attendance pay, and performance pay add up to the $10 per class and the $20 dollars per hour.

Standby Pay

Occasionally, teachers will be placed on the schedule as standby teachers. During these instances, teachers are there in case the primary teacher for the class has tech issues or becomes sick and is not able to take the class. In this case, the standby teacher fills in for the primary teachers. When a teacher’s standby is filled, he/she makes the usual $10 per class rate. If the standby teachers do not have to cover the class, they will be paid $4. Teachers must wait 3-4 minutes after the class has started to make sure they are not needed. The system will notify the teacher with a “ding” sound if they need to cover a class. In my experience, when I am on standby, 98% of the time I get a notification to cover a class.

Vacant Classes Pay

In the event that students are absent, The teacher still gets paid the full rate. A teacher must wait 10 minutes into the start of class to make sure that the student does not show up. In certain cases, I have had kids arrive at the 9-minute mark. We are still required to teach the class, but oftentimes, I let class coordination know, and they usually tell me to end at the regular time so that I am able to make my following class.

Money Earning Proof

How Does Qkids Pay You?

The final question others might ask is once you accumulate the money, how does Qkids pay you? The company pays teachers through direct deposit. One must provide a routing number, etc. While some may be leery of this, they have paid me on time for the past several months with 0 shady business. I leisurely work from the comforts of my home, and the money is deposited. Qkids’ pay schedule is usually the 10th of the month, give or take a few days. Above I have provided the payments I have received as proof. As you can see, it is a great secondary income and the easiest part-time job I have ever had.

In conclusion, I wanted to answer this question to clarify all of the various ways teachers get paid. I hope this helps those who are still thinking about applying. Qkids continues to look for new aspiring teachers. CLICK HERE to apply.

I am here to help each step of the way.

    Just curious. Are classes booked back to back and do you have time to enter the next class to do your technology check and warm up before the next class? Also, are the reviews of the students due right away after the class or can they be done after you have taught all of your classes?

      Hey Heather, classes can be booked back to back if that is convenient for you. There is ten minutes between classes.

      I usually do the reviews right after, but one could opt to do them after all classes if he/she prefers. I think the teacher has 24 hours to finish reviews. 1v1 reviews are written in paragraph form with a few rating criteria to check off. I start my written review with the positives, give feedback on what can be worked on or improved for future classes, and then end with more positives and a goodbye. I am finished fairly quickly with it.

      1v4, there is just rating criteria to check off for each student which doesn’t take very long at all.

      • Thanks for your reply! How common are 1v1 classes? Also, are there always 4 students in a class? I currently work in an online platform that is 1 on 1 and 4 kids kind of intimidates me although I have been a B&M teacher for 20 years. As I am going to the training with Qkids I like the way that they student can respond to the questions, but assessing their speaking seems difficult when they are all speaking at once, I am going to have to get used to muting and unmuting their mics, I guess.

          I was asked if I would be interested in 1v1 classes probably after about 6 months of teaching. I am glad that I did because I have formed great relationships with my “regulars” and their families.

          Surprisingly, 1v4 isn’t too bad. Sometimes less than four actually show up for class. The platform tells you if each slide in the presentation is a group activity or an individual activity. For the slides marked “individual” those allow for more of a one-on-one feel in which the rest of the students are muted for a minute, and it gives the teacher an opportunity to interact with each student individually. Four students intimidated me when I first started, but it actually helped the shy kids blend in some.

          Let me know if you need help with the features of the platform and I would be glad to help!

  2. Hi Kyle, thanks for all the info. Now that some time has passed since this post, would you still recommend this job?

      Hi Abby,
      Thanks for the comment. I LOVE Qkids. I actually had classes this morning. It has helped my family tremendously as a side income. The staff members are friendly and understanding. Do you currently teach online anywhere else?
