Engaging with school representatives in country is a great way to provide personalized advice to students and families to consider studying in the U.S.
Early this January Alex Tolischus, Senior Manager of Institutional Relations and a former boarding and independent school Admission Director traveled throughout China with Senior Sales Consultant Jack Xiong to meet with Chinese educational agencies, prospective students and schools.
During the trip Alex and Jack presented to large groups of students at public high schools and interviewed students in agency offices. Alex presented on current pedagogy in U.S. schools including topics such as 21st century skills, Design Thinking, Maker Spaces, highlighting her recent experiences teaching and working with faculty engaging in these new trends in teaching and learning.
Alex also provided admission “tips” to Chinese students about how to be your best during a Skype interview as well as what to expect in the classroom upon arrival to the U.S.
