About Xiaojuan

Hi, all. I had been a university instructor teaching college English in China for 13 years before I pursued my doctoral study in the United states three years ago. In addition, I have been tutoring back from high school, tutoring students ranging from preschoolers to adult language learners, and I did very good job.

I love tutoring, first because it is the best form of individualized education, that is, I can adopt effective strategy in correspondence to the need of individual learner, including the teaching content and teaching style. Second, I love tutoring, because I enjoy getting along with students, and witnessing their achievement that can be attributed to the joint efforts of the student and the teacher.

In addition to being a native Chinese speaker, I have some training courses for teaching Chinese as a second language at China Language Resource Academy in 2011, and Chinese language teaching program by the China Training Group in 2014, and have been certified as teaching Chinese as a second language. Since 2014, I have been teaching (sometimes as a sub teacher in Rochester Chinese language school and I've done a great job in tutoring second Chinese language learners with my individualized teaching.

Teaching english is my lifelong passion. I have been an english language teacher at university level for 16 years, teaching english grammar and english writing. During my spare time, I had been tutoring highschoolers SAT writing, TOEFL writing. Besides, I have been in a doctoral program in university of Rochester for three years, and I have been studying academic writing, mastering more writing genres. Currently, I have passed the defense of my dissertation that is on international graduate students' academic literacy experience. Above all, I have accumulated much experience with english writing because I am a second language learner myself, and I have been teaching second language learners for 20 years.

when you give me an opportunity to tutor you, you actually give yourself a chance to get improved greatly. Please contact me to learn more about me and the lesson you desire to have.
Thank you
