About YAO

I love languages, and I love being with students!
Spending seven years in Beijing Language & Culture University, where the ratio of international students learning Chinese and Chinese students was 3:1, I was lucky to step into the field of language teaching within a natural and multi-cultural environment.
Interacting with language partners, my English reached an IELTS 8.0 level. I learned Japanese as the second foreign language, and passed JPT Level 1.

Then came the culture exchange period. I've been to Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Sweden, Japan, and Thailand, and acted as coordinator in the Beijing Olympic Games. With the experience accumulated, I succeeded in applying for TA in the English Department and the Chinese Department. Becoming a real part-time teacher of Chinese, English, and English for non-native international students, my horizon was expanded significantly. Wherever I went, I could become a teacher/tutor, teaching languages as well as exchanging cultures.

And this year I got a great opportunity to participate in the ALLEX Program, whose core pedagogy of language teaching is -- Performed Culture Approach, which ensured students to get involved in a more interactive and culture-bound way of learning foreign languages, especially Category Four languages, such as Chinese and Japanese. It is a real eye-opener to me. I have been able to see through the mist somehow, and been confident than ever, to move on pursuing my career goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

IELTS

I took the IELTS last November, and got a 8.0 in general, with speaking and listening at an outstanding score of 8.5.
