All of our teachers and assistants are required to participate
in an intense three-day training retreat in May. The training is
hosted in a location in the California foothills - a short fifteen
minute drive from the TCR headquarters. Participants in the training
are provided with a copy of the TCR textbook and Teacher Handbook
and given lectures and workshops on Chinese culture, TCR teaching
methods, and team building strategies.
Our teachers apply for a 30-days VISA as a group during the training weekend. It is important that each teacher come prepared with their passport, additional passport photo for the VISA and the VISA application filled out. An application is supplied in the preparation manual that is mailed out to each teacher at the end of March along with instructions about how to fill it out. Additional copies of the application are available here: Click here to download a VISA application.
