“As a consultant devoted to working with sophomores and juniors in high school, I have had the chance to work with them to further develop their academic interests, extracurricular activities, and critical thinking skills.”

“As a consultant devoted to working with sophomores and juniors in high school, I have had the chance to work with them to further develop their academic interests, extracurricular activities, and critical thinking skills. Watching the students progress over time, whether it be from their sophomore to junior year or simply their fall to spring semester, has been one of the most exciting aspects of ESC and really shows how great of an impact ESC has on the lives of these intelligent young scholars.  ESC provides an entrepreneurial yet close-knit environment that is conducive to learning and working. Being at ESC has been a very valuable and rewarding experience, both personally and professionally.”

EJ Mitchell

EDUCATION CONSULTANT | B.A. Amherst College

“My past experiences working in various K-12, tertiary, and international education institutions in the United States and China have taught me that there is no “one-size-fits-all” educational experience. Each ESC student has specific needs rooted in their intellectual interests, personality traits, hobbies, life goals, and more. In the 4+ years since I’ve joined the ESC team, I’ve marveled at how our approach has always been centered on understanding these needs and developing innovative curricula and comprehensive services. When students join ESC, they are entering a community that is committed to providing them with a personalized experience that facilitates transformative self-discovery.”

EDUCATION CONSULTANT | Bowdoin College

“It’s great to be able to work with the some of the brightest students in China. Helping them research and develop their ideas is incredibly intellectually engaging. It’s not only a matter of imparting your knowledge about English grammar or essay structure, but learning with them the best ways to articulate the fascinating ideas and experiences they want to encapsulate in their essays. This year alone, ESC students have introduced me to Latin dance, theoretical physics, and Chinese poetry, among other topics. It’s extremely rewarding to see a brainstorming conversation in August develop into a completed essay by November – definitely one of my favorite parts about the job!”

“I love working at ESC! As part of the North America High School Scholars Program, I work from my home in Connecticut, and have great flexibility in organizing my time. Our students tend to be bright and engaged, relatively knowledgeable about US culture, and well-prepared academically and linguistically. The tone of communication with both students and fellow ESC staff is warm and friendly; I definitely feel like I’m an integral part of a team, while also enjoying the autonomy to structure my interactions as best fit each situation. ESC is a growing organization, and I’ve found it exciting and educational to watch it develop and to be part of its success – and that of my students.”
