Our Founders

Tong Yin, Principal

Located in Beijing, China, Tong is the mother of 16-year old boy who attends an international school that adopts a full English curriculum.  To help her son transition from the local Chinese school to the international school, Tong sought out an English tutor.  She spent a lot of time and effort looking for qualified, native speakers to work with her son, and found the market very limited.  This gave Tong the idea to set up an online English tutoring program, which would provide English learners all over the world with access to the best English faculty at a mutually convenient time without the bother of traffic.

 

Tong has worked as a CFO for U.S. and China listed companies, and as a finance controller for several multi-national companies.  She holds an MBA from Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario, Canada.  She is a Chinese Certified Public Accountant and a Canadian Certified Management Accountant.

 Eddie LaMeire, Principal

Eddie has worked in higher education since the late 1990s. Eddie began his career in college admissions at Loyola University, where he managed a recruitment territory of 12 states, and read upward of 500 applications annually. Following Loyola, Eddie served as the Associate Director of the UC San Diego Cal-SOAP college outreach program. At UCSD, Eddie worked with the university’s major outreach programs, student recruitment programs, and Undergraduate Admissions.

 

In 2007 Eddie moved on to work with a large education company in the Bay Area, developing their college consulting division. For more than five years he directed the group, overseeing the operation as Managing Consultant.
