I was born and raised in Hong Kong. Before attending English private middle and high school, I was at a Chinese-speaking elementary school. In 2007, I came to the US for higher education earning a degree in Bachelor's of Architecture at Syracuse University and I began my pursuit to becoming a licensed architect in New York City 2 years ago.
With experience tutoring computer programming in college and some volunteered teaching after graduation, the idea of becoming a part-time tutor emerged. At the age of 12, I switched from a Chinese speaking school to a strictly English-speaking school and I could not have done it without my tutor. Not only did she help me struggle through the language barrier, but she also allowed me to elevate as a student as well as becoming more confident in my abilities to absorb and learn. I wish to do the same to others who are eager to develop or expand their knowledge and skills.
Being an architect, graphic skills are essential. I have been using InDesign for over 4 years.
I have a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University and was a good student. I also helped tutor lower-classmates on certain subjects.
Practicing to be an architect, I use AutoCAD on a daily basis professionally. I have been using AutoCAD for over 6 years.
Growing up in Hong Kong, Cantonese is my mother tongue. At the age of 12, I attended a private school that taught Chinese in Mandarin instead of Cantonese. With 7 years of Mandarin classes, my speaking and writing skills are at professional proficiency. I have taught Cantonese summer classes to 6 to 8 years old kids where Chinese is their second language and English is their first.
In addition, I have extensive professional experience in translating between English and Chinese (both Traditional and Simplified).
Having gone to a Catholic elementary school, I was trained to write in cursive. And now being an architect, I typically print neatly. Also had experience in Chinese calligraphy.
