Biography:

Yuhan Kuo received his B.A. in Linguistics from the University of California at San Diego. He received his M.A. in TESOL, M.A. in Linguistics, and his certificate in Computational Linguistics from San Jose State University.

He moved from Taiwan to the US when he was 14. His ESL and English teachers assisted him to overcome the difficulties of learning English and inspired him to become a better writer, and eventually, an English teacher as well.

During his time in UC San Diego, he enjoyed working with international students through International Christian Fellowship, where he discovered his passion of learning from people all around the world.

After spending a short period of time of relaxation and enrichment in Taiwan, he continued his studies in San Jose State University. While expanding his knowledge and skills as a teacher, he also had the chance to work as a tutor with the writing support program and a research assistant running speech perception experiment and annotating pronunciation data. He also taught ACT and SAT English at HS2 Academy for 2 years, where he had a chance to work with students from different ages and language backgrounds. After he finished his Master’s Degrees, he started teaching at Foothill College. He also volunteers to help developing curriculum and teaching English at a summer camp in Yilan, Taiwan.
