Mei Juan Jiang
Founder, Mandarin Instructor
I am a native from Shanghai, China. I majored in Chinese Literacy in Shanghai Teacher’s University. At an early age, I developed an interest in learning new languages and cultures and a passion for teaching. Growing up in an international city, I had first-hand experiences with many unique and interesting cultures around the world. This discovery motivated me to share Chinese language and culture with my students as they study Mandarin. I sincerely believes that successful learning comes from a fun and inviting learning environment. My teaching style makes learning Mandarin a fun and exciting experience.

Yufeng Xin (Grace)
My name is Grace and I am from Guangzhou. I previously studied in Beijing for 4 years and have since moved to San Francisco. I received my masters after studying here for 4 years. As a teacher, I believe that the Chinese language is a very important part of the Chinese culture and I want to introduce as much exciting culture as I can in my classes. I always show great interested in my students and how they learn and communicate Chinese. I hope everyone will have a happy and relaxing time in my class!
Lijun Li (Ginnie)
Hi, my name is Ginnie, a native Chinese speaker. Born and raised in Guangzhou, I can speak both Cantonese and Mandarin. I have been a private tutor since my campus life, and I became a teacher later after I graduated. In my spare time, I’m a coffee lover!
For myself, I can effectively help my students at different levels achieve the goals with a flexible way for Chinese learning. I believe we have a lot more to learn than in textbooks, so I’m going to make some practical extensions for my students if necessary. I’m an easygoing person and my teaching method is kind of relaxing, so I become friends with almost all my former students. I sincerely hope we can become friends too!
Yuanyuan Liu (Eunice)
Mandarin and Japanese Instructor
Hi, I am Eunice (Yuanyuan). I came from Henan, China. I went to college in Missouri and graduated as MFA in San Francisco, 2019. Mandarin is my native language and I gained my Japanese language JLPT-N1 certificate in 2018 and have been teaching kids ever since. Through creative explorations and culture learning I encourage students to speak, write and explore the language in a relaxed low-anxiety way. Let’s get started with exciting adventures of Chinese and Japanese!
Bi Qi Su (Daisy)
My name is BIQI SU. I’m from China, the Inner Mongolia region, the city of Hohhot. I attended China Women’s University from September 2011 to June 2015. I received my bachelor’s degree in Broadcasting and Hosting Art in this institution. The four years training in Mandarin Phonetics and Vocalization and the Type Program Hosting gave me a solid and reliable foundation of speaking Mandarin. I interned at three public national and regional TV Stations: China National Radio (CNR), China Radio International (CRI), and Inner Mongolia Television Station (NMTV).
I received my Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at the University of San Francisco. In my time at USF, I worked as a Chinese tutor and designed various learning activities to improve vocabulary, tones, and pronunciation. My understanding of teaching a second language and multicultural education increased significantly.
Given the combination of my bachelor’s degree and my Master’s degree, I possess good empathy skills which enable me to build efficient and amicable communication with students.
I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. Since 2013, I’ve lived in California and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in Theatre Performance at San Francisco State University in Spring 2020.
In 2009, I began volunteering at a youth center in Taiwan, tutoring English as second language and teaching hip hop and ballet dance for teenagers in the local community. Through that experience, I was able to develop positive and supportive relationships with my students, who still reach out to me years later to share their current successes and achievements. I’ve also successfully tutored adult students from various countries and cultural backgrounds in a college classroom setting in the U.S.
In addition to teaching and tutoring, I have strong communication skills strengthened by over 5 years of professional acting experience and public speech performances in both Chinese Mandarin and English, along with over five years of professional speech training. With my education background, I have continued to expand with a journalism internship at KPFA radio station in Berkeley, California to gain communication, research and management skills. I am committed to helping students develop their language and speech skills, and I believe that I have the personality and skills to be a successful community teacher at KaiXin Language School.
