About Xiaojian

A well-educated native speaker of Mandarin Chinese, I also have a master's degree in second language acquisition from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have a very good command of both Chinese and English and I am able to communicate effectively with my students in both oral and written forms.

I am a New York State certified teacher in both Mandarin Chinese (Professional 7-12) and ESL (permanent). I have taught Chinese and ESL in NYC high/middle schools for twenty years. Therefore, I am an experienced language instruct.

Having lived in each country, China and the United States, for quite a long period of time, I know both cultures very well, too. Cultural awareness is also an essential skill for a foreign language teacher to have because to master a foreign language is to learn about the culture of that country.

In a word, I believe I am a highly qualified teacher of Mandarin Chinese and I won't let your clients down.

Very nice and good, but not exactly what we need — Mr. Xiaojian Z was a very nice man and a good teacher. The student's biggest challenge in learning Chinese, however, is proper use of grammar and structure. It is clear that Mr Z knows these well, but he was not able to communicate this totally effectively. ...
