About Xixi


Bio

Hi, I am enthusiastic about teaching/tutoring Languages. Having graduated with a master’s degree in Second Language Instruction (SLI), I have solid academic knowledge in education and professional skills which match your requirements perfectly. I have studied second language principles (SLA methodologies, teaching strategies, teaching language skills, etc.) as well as fundamental teaching skills (sociolinguistics, evaluation & assessments, classroom management).

Hi, I am enthusiastic about teaching/tutoring Languages. Having graduated with a master’s degree in Second Language Instruction (SLI), I have solid academic knowledge in education and professional skills which match your requirements perfectly. I have studied second language principles (SLA methodologies, teaching strategies, teaching language skills, etc.) as well as fundamental teaching skills (sociolinguistics, evaluation & assessments, classroom management).

Adding to my academic experience, I have taught in both ESL and CSL classrooms. I have been responsible for teaching immersion classes and organizing cultural activities. I have also tutored language and other subjects over the years, helping my students with their homework and study.

I am a Chinese native speaker speaking standard Chinese. I also have a background in Second Language Instruction and taught/tutored Chinese to English speakers before. In my class, I will help my students speak loud and confidently, read fast, and write correctly. I pay attention to both pinyin (pronounce and tone) and kanji (Chinese characters). In addition, I think learning Chinese culture is also an important part.

I took English as my major for my undergraduate and taught university ESL classroom before. I know how to explain English grammar from a language learner's perspective to help my students understand better.

I am a second language instructor with an educational background and some teaching experience. I prepare a lot before every class and make sure my lesson is interesting and useful! I can use 100% target language even you are a beginner level learner and use Chinese/English immediately after my first class. If you are a passionate learner and want to learn Chinese/English, I hope you can choose me to be your tutor and I am looking forward to working with you!

Great teacher, very patient!

My daughter just started mandarin classes in high school and we were looking for a tutor to help her along. Xixi is very patient and engaging, which helps when you’re learning a new language. My daughter is looking forward to their next lesson. 9/15/2021: This is our third lesson and Xixi is a dream teacher to work with. My daughter loves working with her.

Melissa, 8 lessons with Xixi

Wonderful tutor!

My 10th grade daughter met with Xixi yesterday and had a really good session. She is in Chinese 3 and struggling because her school had her skip Chinese 1 and Chinese 2 was all virtual last year due to Covid. Lulu plans to keep at least weekly sessions going with Xixi to continue building the foundation she missed. Lulu found her friendly and felt Xixi listened to her struggles, coming up with a good plan to move forward. My girls both studied French with native speakers at their immersion school, so we knew the added value of learning from a native speaker. Thanks!

Very engaging and patient tutor

We've been very happy with Xixi and her tutoring style. My son started with no prior Chinese experience and has progressed a lot over several months. Xixi is very dedicated and patient tutor. She definitely puts a lot of hard work and preparation into each lesson. Most importantly she makes every effort to make sure my son enjoys the lessons.

Always prepared and my kid has fun!

My daughter is in Chinese Dual Immersion through her school and when the schools closed due to Covid 19 we hired Xixi to keep her engaged in her Chinese studies and to provide additional tutoring during the summer break. Xixi always came prepared with age and level appropriate learning materials. There was lots of giggling, so although my non-Chinese speaking self did not understand what they were saying, I could tell the lessons were engaging and my daughter was participating. Xixi also kept me updated on the subject matter and what they studied for the week. Xixi is a great tutor and we will definitely continue to use her as we move forward with my daughters studies.

Knowledge and patient tutor.

XiXi has been working with our 14 year old son Luke for 4 months now teaching him English. We adopted Luke from China, so he also speaks Mandarin. It has been wonderful working with XiXi. He loves the lessons with her. He has learned so much in such a short time. I highly recommend XiXi as an English tutor.

Patient and good tutor

I was nervous to get a tutor, but Xixi was very nice, helpful and supportive. She helped me with grammar and vocab and had prompts ready if I got stuck. I plan to take more lessons with her. :)

Schyler, 1 lesson with Xixi

Looking forward to more lessons

Xixi did a session to evaluate my daughter before continuing on with more lessons. My daughter enjoyed it and we're excited to continue. We look forward to continuing working with Xixi.

Patient and knowledgeable

Xixi is well prepared and wasted no time to teach my 12 year old son. It was a great session, we thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to our next adventure! I am extremely hopeful with Xixi’s methodology that my son’s will want to continue. Thank you Xixi
