Meet Our Director

Jeni Brown

Jeni Brown has been working with English language learners of all ages since 2001. After graduating with a BA in history from Oakland University, Mrs. Brown relocated to Taipei, Taiwan and taught English learners while continuing to study Mandarin for five years. She then relocated to the United Kingdom to complete her Master’s degree in history while continuing to teach English to young adults from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East as well as older members of the Chinese speaking community in Manchester. After graduating, she returned home to the U.S. where she taught in an ELL department in southern California. For more than a decade, she helped to develop and strengthen one of the few comprehensive high school ELL programs in the country and spearheaded the revival of the English language summer intensive in both Seoul, Korea and Idyllwild, California. In 2018, she joined the Sem community as the new ELL Chair and became the Program Director of the English Language Institute for Summer at Sem.

Each student is unique and with small class sizes and the benefit of regular one-on-one virtual conferencing, our faculty are able to provide students with individualized instruction and feedback each week. Be ready to engage, reflect, connect, and develop the skills and confidence you need to succeed.

A Note from Program Director Jeni Brown:

The Online English Language Institute (ELI) faculty and I wish to invite English language students across the world to join us for the 2020 English Language Institute with Summer at Sem.

Many of our faculty have already been hard at work providing outstanding virtual academic instruction to both domestic and international students alike here at Wyoming Seminary this year. This makes our team of experienced and professional language educators especially ready to guide ELI students as they continue to strive for excellence in academic English while still gaining the experience of working with faculty at an American college-prep school.

Each student is unique and with small class sizes and the benefit of regular one-on-one virtual conferencing, our faculty are able to provide students with individualized instruction and feedback each week. Be ready to engage, reflect, connect, and develop the skills and confidence you need to succeed.
