FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first practice will look and feel a lot like free time. I spend a good amount of time observing the student's movements and skill level before determining what drills, exercises, and skill development would be best for their stage in training. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a boys and girls rec. Coach at Aspire for three years now and the assistant coach of the competitive acrobatic gymnastics program.w

I attribute a lot of my success to my years as a collegiate level gymnast with The ASU men's gymnastics team. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Aspire has plenty of classes and programs to choose from for steady hours and monthly rates.

I use a system based on hours per week. 

I will charge 50 for one hour of private lessons.

I am willing to discuss various rates depending on the amount of intended hours a week by each person. 


How did you get started teaching?

When I started training artistic gymnastics when I was in high school coaching was my first job. Once I developed a talent for teaching kids from ages 4 to 18 I made a gym switch to Aspire to hone my skill as a competitive acrobatic gymnastics coach. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with kids from a recreational level of gymnastics to elite competitive groups. Though I am new to the program I have also coached special needs kids in all forms of gymnastics. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Aspires acrobatic gymnastics team performed their hearts out at Nationals last season. I couldn't have been more proud of each and every one of them. They worked to the bone for this opportunity.

I am immensely grateful to be their coach. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Time. Effort.

With enough of both you can learn anything. I am capable of assisting you in your growth, but you are the catalyst to your own success. If you are willing to attempt any skill a thousand times you will learn and master it. Guaranteed.

If you are in need of any help it would be my honor to provide all the knowledge I've accumulated. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Know what you want to be better at.

Having a certain skill you want to learn will make the progression path clear and easy. If you walk in just wanting to "do stuff" you may find you lesson plan vague and grow bored of the basics.

Have a specific goal in mind and know what you want to learn by the end.
