Sam was born and raised in San Francisco. An alum of CSB, University High School, and Camp EDMO. His roots are in SF but he has lived in China and South Korea. His 5th grade Mandarin teacher sparked his interest in Chinese and as a result, Sam spent his junior year of high school living in Beijing with a Chinese host family and is returning for 4 years of college with NYU in Shanghai on a merit scholarship. His interest in being a coach comes from his experience in being a Camp EDMO counselor, an Eagle Scout, and a mentor and tutor for kids and seniors. Sam has experience coaching both in-person and online. He believes that the key to learning is making it fun. By getting kids excited about a subject they want to learn more and school becomes an activity instead of a chore.
My name is Zhengjie Zhang and I go by Peter. I am proud to be a coach for Camp EDMO and feel enthusiastic to meet and share my knowledge to you. I received Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and governance and data science from the University of California, Berkeley, and currently pursuing law school. This will be my 4th year as educator and 3ed month in EDMO. I have a true passion for working with our youngest learners! Personally, I was born in Shanghai, China and came to the US for studying when I was 14 years old. Now I am 22 and strive to create a community of learners that nurtures development on academic, social, language, and motor growth in a positive, fun environment. I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child's growth and development!
