    Seemed like a really good dude that knows his stuff. I'm looking forward to watching my son's progress under Derek's training program.

    I learned a lot about baseball and how my muscles work together to help me perform at my best. This program helped me with arm care and arm strength. Also, it made it so I was more explosive and had a faster first step. I have grown a lot through the program and now I have a better arm and more velocity on my throw.

How did you get started teaching?

After graduating from college I began coaching at the high school level and soon after was asked to coach at my alma mater Azusa Pacific University.  I've been involved with working with athletes since that time. 

What types of students have you worked with?

LPE clients include MLB, USA Track & Field, NAIA, NCAA, PGA athletes as well as fitness enthusiates from San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.

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

athletic experience is valuable for the coach to have.  Those coaches who have coached at multiple levels will provide a wider array of communication skills and teaching techniques which will yield in faster understanding of the student.  Education is very important as well as additional credentials.  An area of expertise demonstates a desire for absolute undersatnding and will usually yeild a superior understanding of the sport discipline.

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

Where they are currently and where they want to go?

What has inhibited them in the past from achieveing their goals?

Have they created/attempted to reach these goals and failed?  If so what was the key factor in this failure?
