About Lijun

I am a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese, currently a PhD student in Leadership and Change at Antioch University, and mom of an almost eight-year-old daughter who is enrolled in a Chinese-English Bilingual Immersion Program in Cambridge. I had my Bachelor's and 1st Master's degrees in education, and nine years of prior teaching experience with young adults in a university in China.

Since I moved to US, I have tutored Mandarin Chinese for two years, some for young school-age kids, and some for high school students. Sometimes I volunteer for the Chinese-English Bilingual Immersion Program wherein my daughter is enrolled.

For teachers in most areas of China, it is required that they pass a test of Mandarin, the standard language of teaching. My Mandarin stood out from all the other teachers in the university where I used to work, because it bears no accent.

I bring to any student my language skills, knowledge of Chinese history and culture, cross cultural experience, passion for learning and growth, and strong capacity for listening, communication, and collaboration.

Very helpful, fun, and considerate — First I noticed how nice and considerate she was in accommodating my needs. She was warm, humorous and made the lesson enjoyable. She was also very patient as I was having difficulty with pronunciation and needed to practice repetitively. Finally, she was good at collaborating with me to help me figure out ways to learn things that were hard for me. Highly recommended ...
