About Cooper

Dear learner,

Hi, my name is Cooper. I graduated high school in 2014, also graduating from Yavapai College with a Cisco Computer Networking Certification. During my high school days I liked to keep my time diverse, participating in sports and the arts throughout the year. Wrestling, football, swimming, as well as art, show choir, drama, and all the school plays not only gave me a great time, but also gave me a wide range of perspectives on LEARNING and how things are taught. This came in handy because 2014-2015 I participated in a Rotary Youth Exchange for 10 and 1/2 months to Taiwan. During this time I went to school, had 4 different host families (none of which could speak English), and Chinese class twice a week. This allowed me to become very proficient in Chinese. If you are at the beginning levels of learning Chinese, you could really benefit from a teacher who is not only fluent but who has just recently been in your shoes. In my personal experience and through the experience of others I have learned that this can make a BIG difference in your journey to fluency in Chinese. In Taiwan, I was under pressure to learn fast and there is a lot of information to retain in language learning. So what did I do? I learned mnemonics and spaced learning, I learned all kinds of methods and strategies to remember and create long-term memory, but as my student this is all here for your convenience. The most important thing is that you learn at your own pace and in your own way. I hope I can help you on this journey of yours.

I have never had any tutoring experience other than volunteer work tutoring elementary level kids and volunteer work with the mentally handicapped class at Prescott High School, but I do know learning a language can be a pretty daunting task. It is important to know how to break it down into bite size pieces. The hard part is to actually make this process truly effective. That's where the science of language learning comes in, and it is a science. Part of it is called LTP, long-term-potentiation, or what is commonly known as long term memory. You can actually learn to use an old Greek skill called mnemonics to recall large amounts of vocabulary and then use LTP techniques like spaced learning to solidify that information into long term memory. Spaced learning has been proven through research to trigger LTP in the brain and really does work in building vocabulary, but without a deep knowledge of grammar it all falls to pieces. That's why I like to use an approach that uses 12 short sentences that give you all you need to know about Chinese grammar, then branch out from these core 12 to deepen your intuitive understanding of the language. We can make your goals come to life in a very short amount of time. Whether you are just starting or need to bring that two years of Chinese classes to a practical level, a strong basic fluency is just around the corner in our journey.

You're on the right track to learn Chinese! There are so many opportunities out there for people who know Chinese and it is one of the coolest languages out there to show off! We can have you hitting whole new levels of proficiency in a month of even a week, just contact me! --Sincerely Coop
