Los Angeles, CA

About Gordon

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
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily i
nvesting 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!
