I would appreciate any info on this company also. They seem to pay a lot higher rates than the other companies based there.

Thought they were an agency for nannies. Don't know anything about them though. Sorry.

Yeah they seem to offer contracts for tutors, teachers, governesses and nannies. Even nannies get paid at upwards of $5000 per month. They do require people to have teaching/childcare experience, etc. For the position of nanny they do a skype interview with you first and then you go out there to meet the family where you are supervised for a week.

Dunno anything about this side of EFL, if indeed it even is really EFL anymore. Some of my friends have described it as more being a servant than anything else. But for that money, I for one wouldn't be complaining : )

There are other posters here who know much more about this than I do, (Kazachka, I think) so I'll bow out...

Good luck!

Funny- I interviewed with them for the ideal PT position in October...but I was on holiday in the US at the time. I seem to be getting more requests for full time-live in stuff which I would never do though it pays extremely well. The best way to go is to take a kid job PT a few days a week. This beats working for peanuts at some school anyday. It's also more fun. You may need to get your own visa though but I have long since solved that problem too.

Just got a PT position with them recently. Been teaching a young boy for over a month now at their home about 45 minutes by train from Moscow. Great paying gig on the weekend. Just been offered another student from this agency which is also a bit above industry standards in Moscow regarding payrate.

Very good experience with this agency so far, nice people running the agency but it is pretty hands off. They may offer visa support but wasn't necessary for me either. I didn't have any supervision during my first lessons and left the "lesson planning" up to me. A bit like babysitting but I quite enjoy it since I bit of a kid at heart myself.
