Very poor staff to child ratio. Not a safe place to send your child to. Very unorganized and unprofessional in terms of a respectful employer employee relationship.

The English learning Camp is virtually overtaken by Brazilian students in the summer - literally hundreds of them inclduding their nannies from Brazil. Alot of Portugese being spoken both among students and between the English teacher and these students. Despite complaining to staff this was never rectified.

Also the Brazilian students were severe bullies to the non-Brazlian students. My son left the camp with a very negative experience as a result. Staff did nothing despite complaints. Had we known before hand about this situation we would have never attended in the camp in the first place.

Also there are no clear benchmarks about what the kids are supposed to learn in their English class and no clear final exam to show what the kids learned during the sessions.

For these reasons I would steer clear of Tamwood and try other outfits.

Terrible administration, lax security, poor provisions, false claims in their promotionals, total lack of quality, unprofessional and unappreciative of their employees.

Below average especially considering the high cost. Poor supervision. lack of support from staff who are unable to attend to any special circumstance arising. Counsellors are poorly trained.
