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

Look for someone who cares about you and your performance, has credentials and experience in the field and a track record of helping athletes achieve their dreams and goals. Communication is critical to any successful coach athlete: clarify communication styles and methods.

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

Is this a good fit for me and my goals and abilities?
