Originally from Hefei, Anhui province, China, Yun received her two masters degrees in ethnomusicology from Xiamen University in China and Wesleyan University in the U.S., as well as Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. In 2013, Yun started working as an editor at Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), a non-profit organization based in New York City that publishes the biggest database for scholarly writings on music and related subjects. As an editor at RILM, she translates, edits, and indexes research papers published in Chinese musicological journals.
Yun first started tutoring Chinese in 2009 when she was a graduate student at Wesleyan University. Between 2009 and 2011, Yun worked with students ranging from three-year old to college students. Since 2013, Yun helped both beginning and advanced Chinese-language learners to improve their reading and writing abilities, and their comprehension of Chinese culture in general. At Cambridge Coaching, Yun enjoys teaching Chinese language learners of all ages and levels of fluency, and specializes in customizing her instruction to the student’s individual needs.
Outside of work and tutoring, Yun enjoys cooking Chinese cuisine, doing yoga, and playing with her cat.
