Kristopher was such a patient, kind, thorough, and helpful teacher. His knowledge and experience with Mandarin combined with his teaching background and fun personality provided a wonderful foundation for learning and growth. I would highly recommend him!Jun 21, 2020
Kris addressed key components of learning Chinese that other teachers hadn't. I was wanting to take my speech from functional to authentic and that is his specialty. He knows the culture behind the language very well and helped me feel a lot more confident in my ability to communicate as opposed to feeling like an idiot parroting off Chinese words. I highly recommend The Chinese Sound to those who have an incentive to choose quality over quantity when learning language.Jul 1, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?(1) $750 4 week intensive. All services included. I do not tutor by the hour. The course will require between 13-20 hours in language depending on specific needs for student.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I am not a tutor. I am not a Chinese academic. I am a personal dialect coach, guiding Chinese language learners to find their personal, authentic Chinese Sound. This requires a 4 week dialect intensive: *Accelerate and deepen all language learning efforts. *Achieve a comfortable automaticity, regardless of language level. *Learn Chinese Presence that allows for truly effective use of language. *Finding your Chinese Sound aids the essential relationship building process in a way that is rarely utilized, but especially effective, even if you're just starting out a beginner level. Tapes, video courses, or periodic tutoring sessions, are great for getting words in you, but if you need to Sound Chinese, and I submit that you do, my intensive will shift your entire Chinese language acquisition process toward better retention, authentic pronunciation, and a more sensitive ear. The Chinese Sound will distinguish you, thus opening up entirely new dimensions of relationship with Chinese speakers, thus maximizing your potential in all your dealings with Chinese speakers.
