    Joe was really great working with both my boyfriend and I in a dual 90min session. Both of us felt like we got good instruction and practice during the lesson. He made sure to speak with me ahead of time to walk through the process and his recommendations on how to go about our private lesson, and to make sure we're getting exactly what we want out of it. We were both beginners and he was great at explaining everything starting with the basics. We agreed afterward that we both had a great time at the lesson and we hope to come back for more at some point!

  • Arthur Pyott

    Very knowledgeable, made me think about the swing in a way I hadn’t before. Was able to identify my issues and I definitely have improved at the range since.

  • Chris Coyle

    Joe is incredibly knowledgeable and he is able to teach in a simple way using said knowledge. Breaking my game down to the barest points, Joe and I were able to tweak a few things that made me more comfortable and made my swing more consistent immediately.

  • Evan S Ott

    Joe was great, very knowledgeable and was able to accommodate my busy schedule. Definitely would recommend. Thanks!

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

Find someone that you are comfortable with and that you believe can teach what you are looking for improvement on. A first lesson is always scary but sometimes you just have to trust your instincts and go for it!

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

what they believe their strengths and weaknesses are. What part of their game they want to improve on the most. Setting goals for themselves and their game and what they want to achieve.
