About Yao

I love to help people. Through my work as a microbiologist, I help people fight against viruses; through my work as a teacher/tutor, I help students achieve their goals. I have years of experience teaching high school science subjects (including biology, AP biology, and chemistry), college biology courses (introductory and upper division), as well as laboratory research. I have mentored students of diverse backgrounds, and some of my mentees have won prestigious scholarships such as the UCLA-Amgen Scholarship.

I am an extremely patient teacher and enjoy explaining things in different ways in order to get my point across. I put myself at the level of my students and teach things the way I learned them. Many of my previous students were surprised at how a complicated subject suddenly became so easy and straightforward once I explained it. I teach creative ways of memorization, but more important, I put an emphasis on logical thinking and creative problem solving which will help my students become independent learners.

I hold a PhD degree in Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics from UCLA. Through >12 years of research, I have gained expertise in various fields of biology including biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, immunology, and molecular biology.

Native speaker of Chinese with prior experience teaching languages.

I'm available Mon-Fri evenings and on weekends. In-person + online.
