Teacher Screening

We do our homework

Our team uses a rigorous and consistent screening and interview process to assess each teacher. In addition, each teacher must meet the stringent requirements of the US Department of State to obtain a J-1 visa. Careful attention is paid to assessing our teachers ability to perform in the classroom and adapt to a new culture.

Our teachers have a credential evaluation from an agency approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), as required for licensure. You can view our vetted teachers when you log into your EPI account.
