About Yao

I am a native Mandarin speaker, and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin and teaching Dance. I have 3 years experience teaching dance and 1 year experience tutoring Mandarin. Right now, I am working as a kids dance instructor, and I love to work with my students.

Learning Chinese could be fun, but it costs efforts too. My goal for every session is to help students increase their interest, and enhance their confidence, and then improve their Chinese skills. I will use pictures, or stories or other stuffs to help student to understand the meaning and the culture behind Chinese.

As a dance teacher, I began my professional dance training at age 11 at the Secondary School at Beijing Dance Academy. I received my BA in Dance degree with an Honors Award for Excellence in Performance from Beijing Normal University. Recently, I earned my M.F.A. in dance at Mills College, California. My dance forms include ballet, modern, contemporary, Chinese folk dance and Chinese classical dance. I have a passion on dance education and watching kids learn in a fun, creative and safe environment, and contribute to their growth and well-being.

I was born and raised in China, and I am a native Mandarin speaker, with no accent. I have a rich background in Chinese language and culture.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you from learning Mandarin and Dance.
