Who am I?

  • System architecure and API design
  • Quantitative risk analysis
  • User experience
  • Software testing and reliability engineering

Teaching underpreviledged students

I can teach pre-college students in Hong Kong mathematics, physics, or computer programming but not with the aim of helping them clear some exams. The student must be motivated to learn these topics. If you operate a charity that focuses on this issue then please feel free to contact me on LinkedIn (details below).

I am currently a part-time student as well. Therefore, at this time, I can only offer short sessions of up to an hour per week where I can advise students on their homework, help them clear their doubts, or give (English) lectures on specific topics of their choice. Goes without saying, I will not charge your charity any money for this service.
