I teach on a very high-level, not just how to swing a golf club, but more importantly, how to play golf well. Playing any sport is not about how well you can shoot, kick, or throw, but how you can use the skills you have and manage the other missing three areas. I have founded the Four Foundations which address all four areas.
I enjoy results. I enjoy opening someones eyes when they can achieve their goals but in a manner they never considered.
Vince is a great coach and teacher.
First and foremost, we complete an assessment of the student's game. This starts with questions to the student on what they believe are their most pressing issues. Second, we review their golf swing and any areas of concern. Lastly (per the assessment), the student is asked to play a round of golf (assuming experience) and record key statistics. These areas are wrapped together to produce a plan of action moving forward.

After volunteering my time with the First Tee and LPGA Youth, I found a love for teaching. Several years break in between, I missed the feeling of teaching and decided to return to golf. I learned that the feeling of teaching juniors was equivalent to the feeling of teaching adults. The caveat was the understanding, learning, and growth of the student.
I have worked with just about every type of student. From disabled, to elderly, to toddlers, I have covered the gamut in addition to all races and genders.
Look for an instructor who is not baiting you with promises of a quick fix. There are times that some students will pick up one or two topics faster than others, but this should not be an expectation. Learning anything typically takes time. Think back to anything you have learned in the past whether in school or work. You didn't learn algebra on the first day; it took time.
Next, look for someone who cares about you and is totally commited to your success as a student.
