Calling All CK Tutors: CK’S Newest Bonus!

This bonus has been extended until December 19th! โœจ

Dear Cambly Kids tutors,

Cambly Kids is growing at an incredible rate, and we are so thankful for all of the love, patience, and determination you have for your Cambly Kids success. Word must have spread fast that you are all so good at tutoring because there are loads of new Cambly Kids students who are so excited to meet you! 

To help you meet new regular students, the Cambly team would like to offer you a special Cambly Kids Peak Hours Bonus starting on Monday, October 11, and ending on Sunday, December 19th. The bonus will run every day of the week for tutors who teach between 9 UTC – 14 UTC, where you will make $13.20 per hour (0.22 per chat minute) rather than the usual $12.00 per hour (0.20 per chat minute) during these hours. 

You can choose to tutor anytime during the five-hour time frame. For example, you can tutor from 12:00 UTC – 13:00 UTC and make $13.20 per hour, or you can choose to work the entire five hours (9:00 UTC – 14:00 UTC) and earn $66.00. 

The health and wellbeing of you, our fabulous tutors, is always our top priority, and we thank you for your feedback on the survey regarding the last Cambly Kids Bonus. Your feedback was insightful and helped us see some things we need to change. We recognize that the previous per-hour incentive bonus may have left many of you feeling tired and overwhelmed trying to reach a certain number of hours per week. So, we’ve decided to change things up for the better and offer a scheduled time incentive so you can take advantage of the bonus without compromising your wellbeing and mindfulness. 

After all, we can’t pour from an empty cup, especially as early educators! ๐Ÿค—

For questions, please see the Q&A section below. If you have additional questions, comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to message Tutor Support! We love hearing from our tutors, don’t be shy!

Happy Tutoring!

Cambly Kids Team


If I would like to participate in this bonus, is there anything I need to do as a tutor to be eligible?
No, as long as you are an active Cambly Kids tutor, you are automatically enrolled in this bonus!

Do I need to tell someone after I complete my hours? Do I need to send in screenshots?
No need! We will do a weekly calculation to see how many bonus hours youโ€™ve completed and pay you directly! 

Please focus on tutoring and let us take care of the logistics!

What happens if my student is a no-show?
If your student no-shows for a session during the bonus timeframe, then you will receive 10 minutes of pay at the bonus rate. (This will replace the usual 10-minute credit that you get when a student normally no-shows). 

For example, a no-show 10-minute bonus will be 10 X $0.22 = $2.20

When and how will this bonus be paid out?
Bonus payouts will happen by the end of Monday PST as a separate payout from your usual pay for the week via Paypal.

For example, for the period of Monday, October 11th to Sunday, October 17th, any bonus that you have earned will be paid out by the end of day Monday, October 18th PST via Paypal in a separate transaction from your normal weekly pay.

If I already have sessions scheduled during the bonus timeframe, do I need to do anything for them to count for the bonus?
If you already have sessions during the bonus timeframe, they will automatically count toward this bonus. No further action is required!

Do sessions with adults count for this bonus?
No, only Cambly Kids sessions on the Cambly Kids platform count for this bonus.

  1. I had a look at the CK Bonus times, and it is a bit unfair, as that is during the night hours where I am located. I wish that Cambly would open that window so it would benefit all the CK teachers from all over the world.
    Any chance Cambly, you can adjust those times so it would benefit us in the AEST zone for during the day?

    1. Hi Mary! I understand that is frustrating and that the time zone doesn’t benefit everyone. However, the team is exploring additional bonuses that we will introduce in the coming months. I promise there will be something for you, too! Have a lovely day!

    1. Oh no! I’m so sorry ๐Ÿ™ This won’t be the only bonus though, the team is always looking for new ways to give more options to you all!

      1. Hi Laura! 9am UTC is 4am in Dallas, Texas, if that helps! So the bonus will run from 4am-9am in Dallas.

  2. Awwww no! I can’t do it its the ghastly early hours of the morning! This is not like the old bonuses. Please may we request to bring them back! The 70 reservations-=22USD Per/ Hour that was way better and included all of us! This one is really not motivating for me, because I am sleeping at that time.! Please Team may you look in to that please? I know that I am not the only one who wants that back! It motivated me so much and allowed me to really push myself and flourish and have so much fun at the same time! I loved it! Thank you in advance, Dear Cambly Team! Thank you so much! Have a lovely day! Hope for better news soon! Take care xoxox Love & Light!

    1. Hi Roxy! I totally understand, some tutors really enjoyed the last bonus and others prefer the fixed hour incentive. The Cambly team is testing out some bonus structures at the moment to see which ones work best for the majority of tutors, and we ask for your patience as we explore our options! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for being a positive, radiating light in our tutor community, we need more people like you! Have a lovely day.

  3. I had high hopes of receiving this bonus upon approval as a CK tutor, but I havenโ€™t yet been approved for CK. Please take a look at my profile. Thanks!

    1. Hi Krissi! I apologize for the delay, the team has been busy sorting through a huge stack of CK applications, but they’re making their way through it! I would recommend writing to Tutor Support, they may be able to give you a progress report on your CK application. Best of luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. My CK application/ profile has been โ€œ under review โ€œ for over 6 months!!! Why??? Iโ€™m a former VIPKID teacher and would like to take advantage of the bonus.

    1. Hi Summer! I apologize for the delay. The team has been busy sorting through an enormous amount of applications. I would suggest writing in to tutor Support so they can give you an update on the progress of your application. I hope you get accepted very soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This is awesome, however, I have been waiting a long time for my Cambly Kids application to go through. Any tips?

    1. Hi Kate! The team is dealing with a significant amount of applications at the moment, and we apologize for the delay. You can always try writing the Tutor Support team & they may be able to give you a progress update on your application. I hope you get approved very soon!


  6. The bonus is 3AM – 8AM CST ๐Ÿ™ I originally joined Cambly because I heard of the old incentive, making the pay comparable to VIPKid. This one is wayy less. I LOVE the flexibility of Cambly and hope you will bring back the old incentives!

    1. Hi Miranda! First of all, we’re happy to have you & welcome to Cambly! We completely understand that everyone has varying preferences for bonus structures. For that reason, we are experimenting with some different options to see what works best for most tutors. Rest assured that we will experiment with a similar bonus structure to the previous one soon.
      Happy tutoring!

    1. Hi Jessica! Yes, CK is hiring at the moment! The team is in the process of sorting through applications ๐Ÿ™‚ Best of luck!

  7. Please keep these bonuses coming! A lot of us online teachers have lost work recently, so this really helps!!
