i am known for my patience and sense of humor. two good attibutes for teaching golf! i am a LPGA class A teaching professional.
my playing credentials include playing on the LPGA tour. prior to that. i played for the University of Florida in the number 1 or 2 position. got to the final 16 in the USGA mid amatuer. prior to college, i played on the boys high school team and had multiple wins in junior golf on the state level in Florida.
i LOVE teaching golf. it doesn't matter the level of the student. it's the improvement that counts.
i can help you become more consistent
hit it straight( with correct plane,path,and clubface)
get more distance by eliminating power leaks
learn the art of chipping, pitching, lob shot, and sand shots and when to use them
learn putting including alternative techniques
my game has improved markedly/ shot a 44 on the back nine of Burlington Creek. The drives are going straight instead of going 100 yards and making a 90 degree turn. My progress in such a short time is amazing. Who knew that one actually has to learn how to play golf to enjoy it!!!
She has great natural and learned teaching skills seeing what is wrong and the methods to cure the problem.
a brief conversation on the phone or during the first lesson getting information from the student that is useful for effective instruction. i do have series or packages. the first lesson can be a trial lesson to see if the student wants a series. the schedule will depend on the student's schedule and the level of play of the pupil.
i use a video instructional program for the visual part of learning and teaching aids for the feeling part.
i believe instruction involves communication between the pupil and the teacher.
as a member of the LPGA teaching division, we have seminars on teaching methods thruout the year. i have been teaching all levels for over 27 years.
i have played my whole life and grew up in the golf business. my father was a pro. at one time there were 5 pros in my family.
all levels both men and women and children. if you have a partner or small group, i can accommodate that.
teaching credentials from the PGA or LPGA, was that person successful-do/did he or she play on a tour? hire a full time teaching pro versus a club pro who has proshop responsibilities because he/she is more focused on teaching.
how long have they been teaching ?
do they like teaching all levels or do they specialize?
do they use current technology?
