The company was founded by Cindy Mi a Chinese native who did whatever she could to teach herself English. She told EdSurge.com that she would take her lunch money and buy audio cassettes and magazines to teach herself English. As she learned more and more English she began tutoring and with that tutoring came the notion for VIPKID.
It wasn’t always easy though, For the first year “…all we did was pilot our program so we could develop the best curriculum, figure out the best way to work with teachers, and come up with the best platform.” Mi told edsurge.com
Today, students that want to learn English or who need to learn English can turn to VIPKID with the same flexibility that teachers have.
