International Student Coordinators

One of the unique advantages of the Weiming Michigan program is the strong academic we support provide. We hire bilingual, bicultural teachers to work closely at the partner schools with our Weiming students, providing tutoring, school liaison, coaching, counseling, and parent communication. Our Michigan partner schools rave about the assistance provided by our Weiming ISCs on a daily basis.

Resident Advisors (RAs)


Staying at the Learning Center, students must transition to a new and different living environment, similar to what they will experience independently after graduation from the Weiming program. To help with this transition, we have a team of both full and part-time resident advisors (RAs) who are available to assist with and manage student living at all times. Our on-site RAs work very hard to keep our students safe, healthy, happy and well-behaved by monitoring their living day by day. RAs also act as a supportive link to the new cultural environment around them and are always available to assist students with any issues they might have living abroad, answer questions, or even just for a friendly chat.
