What is your typical process for working with a new student?

To listen first then watch. I focus on what a student does best then build in that. Once we get that done...on to the next!! Each student is completely different and a great coach has the ability to maximize on the differences for the sake of the whole.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

CPR/First Aid, CDC Concussion Cert, currently coach three teams and run practices for ages 5 - 14.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lessons can be indoors or out. The minimum is $25 per hr. Prices can be once a week or can negotiate multiple times per week.

How did you get started teaching?

WOW!!! I started playing ball at age eight. Wasn't a real interest until thirteen or so and stopped at age sixty. They say that thoes who can do, thoes who can't teach!!!

What types of students have you worked with?

All types, ages and co-ed. Kids with Special needs benefit greatly from the "team" experience.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This summer I coached two teams in two different age groups. 5-7 yr olds and 14- under. The babies lost one game and the 14- under didn't lose. I had more fun than they did!!!!!

One of my most satisfying experiences was to coach kids who knew nothing about basketball. Whether it was due to a learning disability or never having the experience.

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

First impressions are everything!!! You can tell who has your best interest at heart. 

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

They should ask themselves how hard are they willing to work, are they open to learning, and accept change.
