    Has anyone worked for this company before? How does it compare to VIPKIDS?

  • S says:

    Curious as well…. As I currently work for VIPkid for over the last year and half.

  • Suzy says:

    Is there any comparison between these companies? One says only up to 2000/month, the other says 16-20/ hour. Wondering is there a limit on those hours? Which one is better to work with? Anyone with experience?

    • Meg says:

      I think they’re pretty comparable. I know one difference is that you don’t need any props with EF Education First, and I’m pretty sure you need lots of colorful props with VIPKID. -Meg, MSM Team
