What Our Students Say

They all gave me goose bumps at some point or another- whether it was while debating human rights, talking about math in abstract ways I’d never imagined it before, singing Spanish love songs, or getting excited over the bioluminescence we had just scuba dived with. Everything we learned was dimensional and full of passion.

I don’t think I can better describe a TTS teacher than the way they were once described to me: “The kind of women I want to be when I grow up”. All four of my teachers this semester were inspiring in their passion for travel, willingness to both teach and listen, curiosity, and (most of all) contagious excitement about the world.

We were also cared for, and ALWAYS had someone to talk to. If we were hungry, snacks were bought! If someone needed a hug, a mentor was there. There really were no glitches in the TTS system.
