Charlie Wu

Charlie has been in love with life and learning since 2004, when a very special teacher in his
grade 3 class introduced him to the works of Roald Dahl upon noticing that he didn’t like books very
much. After that moment, Charlie’s life changed in trajectory. He became fascinated with almost every
subject at school, especially English. Later on, he would graduate from UBC with a double degree in
Psychology and English Literature, all the while still being in love with life and learning. He has been
teaching for over 5 years, and much of what he knows to be important in the world he has learned
from children. His favorite things to discuss include theoretical psychology, poetry, and the history of
science. If you ask Charlie what his favorite book is, he would probably give you a different answer
every time. In the past, the answers have included “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”,
“Norwegian Wood”, and “Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus”. Ultimately, Charlie looks
forward to teaching and learning about anything and everything at BrainBoost.
