    I worked at EF Education First part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are always students to teach and lessons are booked for you by EF.

    Cons

    The lessons are 40-50 minutes long and you have to write lesson feedback for every student before your next class begins on the next hour. Otherwise you end up working a lot after hours. There was not much training or support for brand new ESL teachers who had no TEFL or experience. You were just kind of left to figure it out on your own. The salary was also a bit low with no chance to increase your hourly rate.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire teachers who have no experience, give them some training on basic grammar and teaching skills. Increase the pay after three months.
