Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:
- Computer Programming
Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:
- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)
Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!
Just finished five private magic lessons with Gordon. He knows his stuff and can really teach thoroughly and patiently! Highly recommended. I will be back for more!
First lesson with Gordon and so far good. He knows his stuff and he is patient!
We just had our first lesson. To my surprise, my usually shy 7 year old opened up quickly and started engaging right away. Gordon is great with young kids and we had a lot of fun. Nice experience and thank you Gordon!
I really like Gordon better than all the other instructors I've had
Was a big help and ultra nice. Easy to work with.
Gordon has a very solid sense of photography from every aspect, and his fluency is also applicable to a beginner like me. I look forward to working continually with him to hone my skills.
Got to know my son and his interests and taught him some simple motions to practise before his next lesson as well as a new trick. My son was totally engaged and Gordon spoke on his level. Great experience!
My son loved the lesson so much that he didn't want it to end!
David loved it! Practicing already and can't stop talking about how great it was and how cool Gordon is. Thanks!
Excellent rapport with student. Very patient
Gordon asked great on-boarding questions. Very personable. We are looking forward working with him more to learn specific techniques to use in novice photography.
Chinese was really tough for me...but Gordon made it a lot easier and helped me practice to be comfortable with the language. He puts a lot of effort into making sure you understand the material. If you don't, he'll go through it with you and try different methods until you do. I highly recommend him!+ Read More
Gordon was a really helpful SAT tutor! He's very patient, kind, and communicative and will definitely help you work through whatever problems you have with expertise and understanding.
