About Jixuan

I was born and raised in China. Originally from Inner Mongolia, I moved to Shanghai with family in middle school and received my bachelor degree in Russian Literature and Language at Fudan University, one of the top universities in China. During college, I was the editor-in-chief in our campus newspaper and led a nonprofit branch focusing on empowering minority youth in rural China. Upon graduation, I came to Cornell University for further study and received the degree of Master of Public Administration on this May.

I have tutored both English and Chinese during college, my students include high school students in rural school and college students from diverse background. I very much enjoy teaching and helping students to be confident in speaking as possible as I could. My teaching approach involves a personalized evaluation and goal-setting, customized materials for different levels, and an engaging and energetic way to learn the stories and culture behind certain characters and sentences. I believe learning a language is more than having a good command of pronunciation and grammar, exploring the culture and social issues through the learning process is the key, and of course, more fun! I will be more than happy to share my cross-cultural observations and experience to you.

In short, I am a native Mandarin speaker with excellent communication skills, as well as cultural competency in both China and U.S.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a native Mandarin speaker from Shanghai. I received my B.A. degree from Fudan University, and MPA degree from Cornell University. I've tutored both Chinese and English to students, ranging from middle school to college.

I enjoy teaching and communicating with students from diverse background, and aim to create an engaging and personalized learning experience for them. Depending on students' needs and priority, I will customize the teaching materials and assignments for them. For listening and speaking, video clips will be the primary source. For reading and writing, textbooks and newspapers will serve the role.
