I have experience teaching and developing a Junior program with the PGA of America. Working through the National Police Athletic League we(Law Enforcement) worked with local Pro's from the PGA to set up clinic and range time for kids. The PGA provided equipment to the local Golf Courses to accommodate this program.
I'm currently working on my game as well as teaching students to obtain my Certification with the USTGF.
USTGF is a national program for coaches teachers etc.
I've been playing golf again for about 1 months and durring that time I could not for the life of me fix the shank on my drive. After a quick warm up, and a sime explanation of proper swing mechanics, Ed was able to get my drive in the fairway every time. Being a beginner at golf, I felt very encouraged and proud of the results of my first lesson and will be working with Ed regularly to refine all aspects of my game. Thank you so much!
Ed was absolutely fantastic! He has a gentle hand when teaching and we were able to go over the driving range, chipping and putting. As someone who has never played golf I was really wanting to learn how to swing and learn the right technique. My husband who has played before was able to work on his swing and technique and Ed was able to balance our different skill levels throughout the two hour lesson amazingly. He was gracious and incredibly patient with both of us. I hope to work with him again and recommend him to anyone who wants to get better at golf in the Orlando area. Thanks again Ed!
ED WAS VERY ACCOMMODATING AND PERSONABLE.
Emphasis on the basics. Good instructional techniques. Very patient.

Experience is a good starter. Talk with the instructor to see if it's a match working together. They should be practical about their abilities and what motivates them to improve. Your gonna be spending money and time. Money you can get back, time you cannot.As anything in learning communication is the key.
Asking questions as to why and how you do things. There are no dumb questions.
Assesment of Budget , what and why are they looking to improve. Do they have the desire and time to work consistently to improve.
