Hello breEDU (Shin Shin),

I was a student in your SAS class in 2010. Just feels so amazing that Shin Shin dramatically transformed from an IT learning center to a global education platform in these years. May you have an innovative and successful business development at this new beginning.

-- Jiun Chow

I really like breEDU’s (previously Shin Shin Training Center) critical reading and writing class. Derisa is a wonderful teacher. She cares about her students and her lessons are always clear, organized, efficient, and fun. My child started out with a diagnostic score of around 2050. After taking her lessons, my child was able to get 2340 on the official SAT on the first try. Thank you!

My son will be going to the 9th grade and I really want him to study in the U.S. However, he has no TOEFL score and his grades are average. I was really worried about him getting accepted into a good high school in America. A friend of mine referred me to breEDU because he said they are physically located in America and knows more about the schools than the agencies in China. I contacted breEDU right away and they gave me a consultation on how I should approach my son’s application process and even recommended me some schools on the spot. Hearing this, I felt more confident in my son’s chances of getting accepted. I decided to use breEDU to help my son with his application and host family because they are very knowledgeable in all the schools. Even though their representatives are all located in California, they always responded to my e-mails and questions within 12 hours and explained any confusions I might have. Within three weeks, they notified me that my son got accepted into Cambrian Academy. I really appreciate everything they have done for me and I’m confident that that they will be able to find a great hosting family for my son as well.

I was worried about my daughter if she were to study abroad because she is only in the 7th grade. I wanted an agency with reliable host family services and I really did not know where to go to. An agency in China recommended me breEDU and I thought I would give it a try. With only one more month left before my daughter flies to the U.S., the deadline was tight on how fast I had to find a host family for her. breEDU immediately set me up with one of their program managers, Sally, and asked for all my information and what type of host family I was looking for. Within two weeks, they found me a beautiful single family home in San Ramon with all my requirements. After my daughter arrived in the U.S., Sally picked her up from the airport and dropped her off at the host family’s house. Up until today, I can contact her anytime to see how my daughter is doing at her host family and school. My daughter really enjoys the communication she has with breEDU and Sally. I could not be any more satisfied. I feel very safe that breEDU has guardianship over my daughter while she is studying in America.

Many people in my network have sent their children to study in the U.S. However, they all warned me that many agencies in China do not tell the truth about the environment, schools, and living conditions in there. I was skeptical about using an agency in China to help my son apply to a U.S. school. I found breEDU through their website and I became interested when I saw that they are located in the U.S. and can physically go visit all the schools I want to apply to. I contacted them and they told me each school’s details and I was really pleasantly surprised about how much they knew about each school. Because of that, I decided to ask breEDU to help my son apply. He’s currently in the 8th grade and he is looking for an IB program to go into once he is in the 11th grade. breEDU immediately recommended me Quarry Lane because they are the only school with an IB program in the Bay Area. The whole application process took about two weeks and they were always prompt with turning everything in on time to the school and asking for the appropriate documents. I have been working with breEDU for almost a whole year now and even asking them to find me a host family. I think their services are great and they are all truly nice people who have my son’s best interest at heart.

-- Jon’s Mother (8th Grade, Quarry Lane)

I was referred to breEDU from a friend and he told me that they have really good host family services. For my daughter, she is very picky in what type of family she wants to live with and therefore I made many requests. I wanted the family to be Caucasian, cooks every meal, lives close to the school, does not have any sons, has her own room with bathroom, and if possible, has a daughter that is close to my daughter’s age. breEDU told me that this wasn’t going to be easy but they would try their best. With every family they found, they sent me photos of what the house and family look like and a detailed description of the family. Finally, after 3 families, they found one that I was completely satisfied with and met all my requirements. I can’t be more pleased. Throughout the past year my daughter has lived there, breEDU told me that her English improved a lot and that she would go out with her host family to go travel nearby. I’m glad she has found a family that she is able to get close to. Not to mention, the school that breEDU chose for my daughter is very friendly and has a large variety of AP and honors classes. I think she is in good hands. Thank you breEDU for helping me so much!

I am glad to let you know that I am going to start as a Statistical Programmer (clinical) at Gilead Sciences, Inc. tomorrow.

I have obtained two job offers recently, one from a pharmaceutical company based in China in the field of computational drug design (my expertise), and the other from Gilead as a statistical Programmer. I decided to accept the position from Gilead since I want to stay in the bay area.

Thanks a lot for your help for the SAS training!

I just want to let you know that I got the job at Clinovo. I am totally excited. I will start this Tue. I will tell you more next Sat when I come to Mr. Gu’s class.

-- Miki / SAS Programmer

My SAS class was ended on 8/13. I would like to thank you so much for letting me attend this training. This training not only makes me to handle my job more efficiently, but also helps me land more than 5 full-time jobs in this tough job market.

Mr. Gu, our SAS class teacher, is always happy to answer our questions and give us various real projects to think further and understand how to handle different situation in the real business world. I really learn a lot during this training period.

Thank you and breEDU (Shin Shin Training)!

Here I would like to testify that breEDU (Shin Shin Computer Training Center) provides the most update-to-date technological training that is suitable to land a job in the designated area.

I joined breEDU’s SAS programming training in August 2008. The material provided during the training is very useful for preparing the Base and Advanced SAS Certificate Exams. Without the lectures and the training materials, I believe it would be much harder for me to get prepared for these certificate tests. These certificates played important role in my job hunting later on. I graduated in December 2008 and in January 2009 I got the offer from my current company.

I believe with the skill training breEDU provides plus hard work one has a better chance to land a job in this tough market.

-- Jian Dai / Sr. SAS Programmer

I’m so happy to tell you that I got a job as a SAS data analyst recently. I want to say thank you for providing such a great training class. In this class, I did not only learn hands-on skills of SAS programming, but also had opportunities to practice real world case analysis. I think this class was very well organized and the study material was covered in a “just right” pace. The instructor was very knowledgeable, and all the questions from students were answered promptly. I believe it is a really good start for those who are interested in changing their jobs to SAS related field. I would definitely recommend your SAS training class to my friends.
Thank you very much for you great job done. I truly wish you the best to your continuous success in the future.
