How are you today? My name's Calvin Hau and I was born in Vancouver, Canada. I then attended different international schools in Hong Kong, which is a big reason why my English is at a native level. After high school, I went to and graduated from Calvin College in Michigan, USA.

I did market research for MBounce, a mobile phone applications/games company in the summers of 2006 and 2007. I helped create new applications ideas for the company.

Service Description

I offer document editing/writing, market research, inventive/creative thinking for companies and administrative-related help. Additionally, I also offer teaching experience of the English language.

Writing/Editing: I can help edit/proofread or even write documents which need to be done in English. I have written research papers throughout university, but I have also done my own creative writing. Specifically, I have written a short story and multiple poems, the latter having been performed publicly. As I have years of experience writing papers and other forms of written media in English, I can definitely help in editing/proofreading papers/documents.

Market Research:
I observe general trends among people and send out questionnaires to find out their preferences on products. In the summers of 2006 and 2007, I have worked at a mobile phone applications/games company named MBounce Limited. There, I conducted market research through distributing surveys to various individuals about what kind of games they wanted on their mobile phones.

Inventive/creative thinking for companies:
I also help companies/organizations in creating new ideas they could use to further their cause. During the summer of 2007, I helped MBounce Ltd. create new ideas for mobile phone games/applications, including a comic book maker for phones! Additionally, I currently am helping Christian Action organize a football/soccer tournament to encourage the ethnic minorities in Hong Kong and other...
