Hi, I’m Sophia, international director of TNIS. I’m a Korean who can speak 4 languages (Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese).

I would love to help you if you need any language support.
Communicating with people from different cultural backgrounds is my joy. Because there is always something to learn, it extends my worldview and makes my heart more abundant.

I hope to meet you and listen to your story!

Hi, I’m Kathy Young, the teacher in charge of ESOL and Literacy Support here at TNIS.

Through interactive and cooperative learning activities we will work together to build understanding and fluency in all aspects of language (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing).

By integrating the schoolwide focus, the students will feel more confident in the classroom and beyond.
