Yes, I work with Magic Ears as well! They are wonderful when it comes to flexibility. Hands-down my favorite company to work with. Check out this article for my take on the top four ESL companies.
You are correct, VIPKid did figure out that I was in their system twice but didn’t take any action other than send me two 1099’s. They emailed me to let me know that they would be sending two due to the fact that I was in their system twice.
Meh, other than that, so far so good.
Please don’t let this transition get to you, there are so many great companies out there for you…companies that will most likely fit your teaching style, and lifestyle, much better than VIPKid.
