Luke Hein

China Instructor

B.A. English, Minor in Asian Studies, Auburn University

Luke Hein is a freelance writer and experiential educator working in the PRC, Taiwan, Indonesia, and the US. Luke was raised in Auburn, Alabama. He spent his senior year of high school in China in 2005 and has been returning there ever since: as a student, guide, researcher, traveler, and teacher. He’s passionate about rural places and the border regions where boundaries blur.

Luke is excited to help students as they meet and form bonds with local people by participating in their lives. This is the aspect of living abroad that most excited Luke when he was seventeen and just beginning his own journey in China, and he’s thrilled to be helping a new group of young people take their first steps on a similar journey.
