About Xiaomiao

I am able to share my culture by teaching the Chinese language. I learned English as a second language and hold a master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) thus I have personal insight into the struggles second language learners may encounter. I have been tutoring students of all ages in Mandarin Chinese in the United States for more than three years. I am also a part-time Mandarin instructor at an independent French school located in the Upper East Side. The more that I teach, the more that I feel teaching Mandarin is both professionally and personally rewarding.

I was born and raised in the northern part of China so I speak standard Mandarin without an accent since standard Mandarin is based on Beijing pronunciation and Northern dialect, according to the Standardized Modern Chinese Association. Based on my personal experience, people will be appreciated more by native speakers if they speak the language with good pronunciation and less accent. Therefore, I always emphasize the importance of pronunciation and intonation, and have spent a great deal of time on that during the teaching process. My goal in teaching is to always make sure that students can communicate with others in Mandarin clearly and coherently. The key of learning a language is COMMUNICATION.

I have used different methods to teach students in different age groups, from 8 to 80 years old. I help students to improve their language proficiency based on their needs. Therefore, I look forward to hear from you and help you achieve success in your studies.

Chinese

Hi, this is Karen originally from the northern part of China. I speak standard Mandarin without any accent. As you may know, the standard Mandarin is based on Beijing pronunciation and Northern dialect, according to the Standardized Modern Chinese Association. I have been tutoring Mandarin Chinese to students of all ages for almost three years in the United States. I am also a part-time Mandarin instructor in Wei Bo Chinese learning Center in NY. I always believe that language is a tool of communication, so my goal is always help students to express themselves in Chinese clearly and coherently. Also, I have been helping many students who attend schools to pass the Chinese proficiency exams.
I look forward to help more students to master this language. Thank you for your time.

English

Even though I am not a native-English speaker, I have been teaching, tutoring and also studying about this language for many years. I am currently doing my Master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). The program covers fields include : English language structure, Educational Psychology, Reading, Writing, and Learning in ESL ect. More importantly, the more class I take, the more awareness I have about English language learning of ELLs (English language leaners).

I have nearly no foreign accent. I am also a part-time ESL instructor in Ivy prep, Brooklyn Chinese school. I help immigrant students to improve reading, writing, speaking,listening skills, as well as real-life English ability.
