“I want to come back to TNKR,” Track 1 re-matching orientation #1

June 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

One of the most delightful things about working with motivated North Korean refugees is that they track us down! We don’t recruit among refugees, it is all word-of-mouth.

Those refugees who have studied in the Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center (TNKR) before and left for whatever reason are really enthusiastic when they return!

* “I studied abroad in the USA, I gained confidence after studying in TNKR. I’m back, I want to study in TNKR again!”
* “I just got hired for a new job, I need help from TNKR!”
* “My tutors have all returned to their native countries. Can I come back to TNKR to study with new teachers?”
* “I took a break to have a child, I’m ready to study English again.”

June 8-9, TNKR will be holding a tutor recruitment weekend for tutors who want to tutor some of these motivated students. Whether if you are a professional certified teacher, just starting, or working in a new field and want to work with such motivated students, then this is your chance. TNKR is a self-directed study program for North Korean refugees, so these students already have an idea about what it is they want to study.
