I am a recent "empty nester". I saw this as a good time to finally do something for me. Follow my passion to learn about the "Wellness and Beauty" industry. When I met the admissions staff, I immediately felt their sincere desire to get me on my way to reaching my personal goals. My instructors and classmates were also welcoming and all were helpful. I learned something from everyone at TCI, not only about Esthetics, but about myself. My confidence grew daily. As adult students, we were expected to be there and participate in our own education. I never felt slighted by the instruction I received. It makes sense (to me) to see it once then perfect the skill by practicing it over and over. Clients aren't always available, so again as an adult student I learned to take initiative to practice on a fellow student or call a friend or family member to come into the school for practice. I had a different experience with each instructor and all had something special to offer!! I feel we are each responsible for getting what we need from any education. TCI became my home away from home and I miss my interactions with the staff, students and clients. Don't go to TCI if you are in need of "hand holding"! You WILL get from TCI what you are willing to put into it. As a final observation, a positive attitude toward your education and/or career placement (as with anything) will take you a long way!
