Why students love PELA!

Thank you for all the support your school brought during my stay and study time in Portland! It was of great help to continue my MBA program in Costa Rica. I think you have some of the best TEACHERS I have ever had in my life.

I came to PORTLAND only 12 days ago, but already I’ve had many good experiences. Every day I have a full life.

The PELA TEACHERS were awesome! I felt like I gained a lot of knowledge from them in the tutoring center. They knew my problems well and helped me with everything.
