My son is taking Chinese III and has been having trouble. Having Kyle as a tutor gives my son a chance to go at a slower pace and ask questions along the way. The personalized attention has boosted my son's confidence. Now when he goes to class, he is ready for the lesson. Kyle is patient with my son. And he shares his understanding of Chinese with him. In other words, he takes the time to explain details about how Chinese is different from English an the rules of Chinese.

I had no prior Chinese experience when I started lessons with Jim, but I wanted to complete the equivalent of an intro college course in Mandarin so that upon returning to school, I could test out of the intro course and continue with the next level of Chinese. Jim has accommodated the Mandarin textbook that my school uses ('New Practical Chinese Reader'), but has also challenged me with practical Mandarin phrases that he deems useful in daily conversation.
