About Kun

I am a M.A. Art History graduate student at the University of Oregon with a field of study in early Chinese art/ Buddhist art. Though my area of study is in East Asian Art, most of my undergraduate Art History courses riveted in Western classical arts. During the nascent stage of immigrating to the U.S. nearly 10 years ago, I possessed nearly no language of English. Such obstacle has never become a barrier throughout my journey of accomplishing academic success. I received an average GPA of 4.05 by the time I graduated from high school, received 5’s on both Calculas AB and BC exams and received a medal from Colorado School of Mines for the achievement in Math and Science. Though I’ve demonstrated an eminent logical skill in order to accomplish further more in the area of math and science, I’ve chosen the area of Art History as a field of graduate study because such subject comprised two of my most zealous areas of interest: art and history. I’ve earned a BFA degree in Graphic Design, Digital Art and Art History (specifically, Western Classical Art History) to demonstrate my ability as a contemporary artist and designer, as well as an academic and scholar. While I continue my education into graduate study right after my graduation, I made a decisive and deliberate decision of extending my professional life into the realm of academics and seek the pursue a PhD degree in Chinese Art History after my Master’s. I am a native Chinese speaker (both Mandarin and Cantonese), and fluent in English. I’ve also acquainted myself with another foreign language when I was an undergraduate student: I finished two levels of German. I am also rather familiar with Christian history and theory since I am a Catholic myself. While I am a tutor, I am also a friend who is trust worthy enough for you to have intellectual conversation or even share the ups and downs in your life with. My method of teaching (which also applies to my own learning techniques) is rather lucid: from general to specific. I will give you the easiest dissection of the subject matter and then dive into deeper analysis rather to convey the knowledge clearly. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you take an interest in me being your tutor.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I've passed the AP AB and BC Calculus exams while I was a junior in high school and scored a 5 for both of them. Though my area of graduate study has a very limited intersection with math, but I am more than competent of teaching Algebra 1 since for a year of my undergraduate study, I was a Physics major.

Chinese

I emigrated from China over four years ago. I attended high school in the US and I am a freshman in college. As an immigrant, I hold a green card. Over four years of life in the US, I can speak Both English and Chinese fluently. During my high school life, my classmates were especially interested in my Chinese culture and language. I performed many presentations in many different social studies classes about Chinese and Asian culture, also taught them how to pronounce and speak simple Chinese phrases.
It's always be my passion to teach my culture and my Chinese, I have had many experiences on teaching and presentations.

Drawing

While I was a high school student, I was always the leader of my art class. No matter if it's painting class, drawing class or advanced art class. I created many professional art works; I am especially gifted with my drawing skill. I've participated in many art shows and I eared many awards for my drawing fine artworks. I've earn the Best of Show in the Pueblo High School Student Art Show for a massive drawing named The Crucifixion of Men.

Grammar

As an academic, it's required for me to be able to have my paper grammatically correct most of the time. My ability of grammar was accumulated through a substantial amount of writing in forms of both expository and persuasive essays and research papers. Therefore, I strongly believe I am qualified in this subject . Recently I've helped my supervisor at an art museum to edit grammatical and writing errors of a collection catalog which was translated from Korean.

Graphic Design

I recently graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. Since my emphasis was Graphic Design while I was an undergraduate, I was trained professionally through my three levels of Graphic Design courses. I am competent of using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and possess a rather familiar knowledge of InDesign as well. In my Advanced Graphic Design class, I was able to work with real clients in the community because our highest level of Graphic Design course functioned as an actual non-profit studio for non-profit organizations of the community. In this advanced studio I've designed logos, posters, cover pages and more. I also worked in a student office as a graphic designer whose primary responsibilities include designing various types marketing publications ranged from poster, tickets, brochures, t-shirts, etc.

Painting

I am greatly gifted in art. Especially in drawing and painting. I love painting, while my high school art teacher taught me how to paint with water color and other painting skills, I was always the one that could create pieces of advanced art work while I just learned them. I also received many awards for painting as well. In the Pueblo High School Student Art Show, I received a second place in my junior year and the Best of Show in my senior year for my paintings. It's my pleasure to share creativity with the others.

Proofreading

My ability of proofreading was accumulated through a substantial amount of expository and persuasive writings, as well as reading academic publications. Therefore, I strongly believe I am qualified in this subject . Recently I've helped my supervisor at an art museum to edit grammatical and writing errors of a collection catalog which was translated from Korean. I also proofread the catalog line-to-line for nearly two hundred pages as well.

Writing

As an academic, it's required for me to be able to have my paper well written in terms of concise expression, explanatory and lucid ideas and arguments and the overall structure of literary fluency. My ability of writing was accumulated through a substantial amount of writing in forms of both expository and persuasive essays and research papers, as well as critiquing other scholars writings. Therefore, I strongly believe I am qualified in this subject .
