Not true. They are not a scam. How do I know? I've worked for them for about 3 years. It's true that their application process is rigorous - it's not a job for just anyone. You really do need to have experience and a relevant qualification. It's true that sometimes you have to give a "trial lesson" for free. Either 10 minutes or half an hour. But that's how you attract new students. And seem reasonable to me.....
