AnB Education provides comprehensive services for our partner schools. Currently we are partners with over 200 schools across the United States. Our services cover student recruitment, LC and host family orientation, academic counseling program, college consulting program, host family program, admissions, cultural support, financial support, etc.
Every year in October and March, we sponsor an overseas trip to China, Korea and Vietnam for representatives from US schools in order to interview international students and recruit them. During the recruiting events, our partner schools get to know the students better along with their culture background and hear their personal thoughts and opinions about having the opportunity to attend schools in the US. Each school is given the opportunity to create and share presentations about their schools, including their mission, belief, features, courses, extracurricular activities, application requirements, tuition, etc.
Local Coordinator Workshop & Host Family Orientation
We hold a workshop for local coordinators (LCs) once a year. Our LCs support schools and families in a given area from the day the students arrive until the day they return home. During the LCs workshop, we educate the LCs about school application process, school rules and host family rules for international students, our agency policies for international students, how to communicate with host families, students and schools, problem-solving and conflict resolution methods. We also discuss how to find and screen potential host families based on schools and students' expectations.
Host Family Program
We find and match host families with our international students according to their requests. Host families are screened through personal interviews, criminal background checks and home visits. Our host families are carefully selected and work closely with schools to help students develop themselves.
We help collect students' application, transcripts, teacher recommendation letters, health record, essays, banking statement and any additional information required by the schools. Additionally, AnB Education offers assistance with processing school application fees, collecting school tuition, processing I-20 forms and assisting schools with interviewing our international students.
Academic Support - Tutoring Arrangement & College Consulting Program
Our local coordinators help make arrangement with qualified tutors for private tutoring sessions for any of our students in need. Tutoring sessions are held at the student's Host Family's house, our Headquarters or online. Our college consultants provide insightful analysis and advice for our students regarding their college and major selection, college application plan and application materials and essay preparation.
Apart from local coordinators, we have student coordinators at Headquarters who can speak the native languages as the students. Currently, our student coordinators can speak Chinese and Korean in addition to English. They act as the liaison between international students and host families and schools. They talk with the students often regarding their academic progress, school behaviors, and help them solve problems. Students can communicate with them more efficiently and comfortably using their native language.
We help donate school facilities and money to our partner schools when needed. Additionally, we can help schools develop their ESL programs and help hire ESL instructors.
