    My son used Thomas Gary for private pitching and hitting lessons. Saw him almost once a week. Took him from totally raw to someone who knows what to do on the mount. Thomas cares about his kids, about their development.

We can can work out some packages if it would help 


How did you get started teaching?

I got started by going into the facility with my little league team , and the owner saw my passion and my  ability to teach..  and asked me for a meeting, in this meeting he asked me if I ever thought about  being an instructor, I was like, I just do it for the kids.  He went on to say , I’ve been watching you and you have a way of teaching/coaching that I would like to bring in to my facility...  I have been instructing since that meeting 8yrs ago 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have work with as low as 4yr old 

and workout with some prospects and pro guys 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

funny that you asked this  question,  as I just left an event in Atlanta Georgia MVP mentoring viable prospects     Lots of AC MlB guys run the tournament with a lot of coverage from colleges and pro scouts    

 I’m also fond of Perfect game events  

And also the Norcal World Series or there’s tons of coverage from division one schools and pro scouts


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

 Look for someone that can relate, that has passion  and not in it for the money    


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

 Depends on the age of the student and the skill level     

 Younger kids don’t understand the many components of a swing ,  so it would be hard for them to  fully understand what they’re looking for   

 An older guy that has experience ,  can’t come in and say I’m wrapping too much or  i’m not tracking the ball   And we can work together to figure it out
