Hong Kong Superstar Tutors

A few weeks before I left on my recent trip to Asia, a friend told me about the superstar tutors of Hong Kong. (Then when I saw that Slate reported on it, I knew I was years behind the curve.) I didn’t realize just how pervasive the phenomenon was though, until I got to HK, stepped into the train and then out, and took all of these photos within a 5 minute stretch.

I’ve always heard that the best way to learn a language is to get a girl/boyfriend, but in lieu of that I guess a major “idol” crush will do just fine.

I don’t know if you can make it out on the picture, but Joseph Li is “often held up as Exam Prophet.” I think it’s gone to his head though. Head/hair.
