Hi, everyone. My name is Mingzhe Han, please feel free to call me Bruce. I am a third year BCOM student specializes in finance. In regards to my past, I came from a coastal city of China named Dalian, living there for 18 years before coming to Canada. I once spent a whole year in Japan, just because of my deep love of that nation.

I am a transfer student from UBC Okanagan campus located in Kelowna. After suffering the pain of loneliness for a year, I successfully transferred into Sauder and began my study in business. As a math TA in the first year, I have built myself some experiences in teaching students. I took COMM204 during the previous summer semester and did very well on the course. My parents are doing business in logistics and transportation, which arises my interests in the field. My purpose as a tutor is to help students clarify their confusions on the course material including cases, and get well prepare for exams. I wish everyone to do well on this course, and maybe build up his or her interest in the area as well.

Comm 295 – Aidan Lau

Academic Consultant: Aidan Lau
Academic Consultant: Aidan Lau

I am Aidan Lau, a third year finance student in Sauder. It is a great pleasure for me to join the Commerce Mentorship Program as an Academic Consultant this year. I am born in Vancouver, but moved to Hong Kong when I was 3. I came back to Vancouver during first year and have been enjoying this place ever since. Unfortunately, I regret to say that I haven’t been exploring a lot of places around Vancouver, other than Richmond and downtown.

One of my biggest passions is football (not soccer!). I do not play the game since I am terrible with sports, but I love watching the games. I spend a significant amount of time just reading football news. My favourite team is Arsenal and I have strong opinions about the team’s transfer strategy although I believe in the leadership of Wenger wholeheartedly. Other than football, another thing I do a lot is playing Tetris. The amount of Tetris I play exponentially increase as I get closer to midterms and finals seasons. I am not particularly good at it considering the amount I play, but I am content as long as I am able to decrease my stress level. I have picked up this habit in my final years of IB and have been addicted to it from time to time ever since. One other thing I am particularly passionate about is economics and I have developed a neo-classical economic worldview, which is not exactly the most popular opinion. On that note, I wish that I will have a wonderful experience working as a managerial economics academic consultant and deliver great review sessions.
