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 five years. I also teach Mandarin part time at an independent high 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, we will be appreciated more by native speakers if we speak their 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. Currently, I am working on my second master's degree in Instructional/Educational Technology and I have integrate new technology into my lesson little by little. This have helped me to keep my students motivated and more engaging during each lesson. I have always 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.

Thank you for your time. If you read this far, I have something else that I can offer you:

If you prefer spending 1/4 part of the hourly rate and practice Mandarin with 4 other friends who are the same level as you, check out my group lesson. ( This is mostly for adults, email me for details).

Chinese

I am originally from northern part of China and 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 a Master's degree in Foreign Language Education and I am currently teaching part-time at a independent high school in UES. I always believe that language is a tool of communication, my goal is to always help students express themselves in Chinese clearly and coherently.

I have been tutoring Mandarin Chinese to children, teenager, as well as adults for over five years in the United States. Not only have they became more confident about their Chinese skills, but also they have gradually improved their test scores on AP, IB, SAT and other Chinese proficiency exams.

Thank you for your time, and I forward to help more students to become proficient in this language.

English

Teaching English and interacting with students is always my passion.

I completed my master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in May, 2014.

Since the end of 2012, I became a part-time ESL instructor in Ivy prep, Brooklyn Chinese school. I have helped so many immigrant children, as well as adults to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening skills, as well as real-life English ability. I have had positive feedback from students and parents and some of them have requested me to become their one-on-one tutor.

Meanwhile, I have been volunteering at New York Cares organization regularly to help elementary students prepare their ELA exams. I have developed many test-taking strategies to help students improve their test score in a fast and effective ways.
