My name is Joanna and I am from Beijing. I received my MBA in the Bay Area.I graduated from Harbin Normal University with a Bachelor’s degree in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and I have been a certified Chinese teacher for over 4 years. I teach various Chinese levels, from fundamental to advanced Chinese.
I like adventures, traveling and learning different cultures. I am a passionate teacher and love seeing my students make progress. My goal is to ensure that every student reaches their full potential by making Chinese learning easy and interesting. Hope to see you soon at KaiXin Language School!

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!

Mandarin and Japanese Instructor
Bi Qi Su (Daisy)
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.
