I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with tecs summer camps- I honestly felt like someone finally gave me a chance to excel and for that I was grateful. It is clear that you really care about tecs and I m so thankful to have had the opportunity to work there. I learned so much about who I am and what I am capable of and made so many wonderful friends. The experience was irreplaceable. I want you to know that it was tecs that really got me started thinking … that I was capable of so much more than being a “language assistant”. I thrive when I am challenged- and I was challenged, no doubt!!

Yes, i knew about Little Village in the Sports Camp (i made it my business to get in-depth reports from Gill H, Chris D and (eventually) Niall about every aspect of summer camp)….and that only English was used….made me feel proud…and proud of the summer camp and everyone who has contributed to it from the very first twinkling of an idea… It is a special place and will absolutely ALWAYS remain my most enjoyable work related experience ever. The setting, the feeling, the atmosphere, the colleagues, the kids are forever burned into my memory. Maybe flowery words but 100% true. …good luck with this years summer camps…although with you and with TECS…luck in being successful doesn t come into it…planning and organisation does….

“One of my proudest achievements has been the work I have done while working with TECS, an English summer camp for children and teenagers. I have worked with TECS over the past 5 summers, in various roles, and have thoroughly enjoyed preparing and giving training sessions to other TEFL teachers, creating an objective-based communication programme, as well as managing camp staff and overseeing the overall quality of the learning: both the learning of the English language as well as the learning of “life skills”. My passion for this job is so strong that I usually spend eleven unpaid months preparing for a summer camp job that only lasts one.”
