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

The first lesson I teach my Athletes ( from Professionals to young kids) is to Master every Drill.  What I mean by that is no matter how big or small a drill or task is; you try tomaster it to the best of your ability to the No Luck Sports motto "We teach Mentality First". When working with a new student I have in depth conversations with them about what their goals are, what are they willing to sacrifice to reach them. I also give a honest evaluation of the skill set and where I see them currently. I then come up with a reachable plan to obtain those set goals.

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

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Counseling and I been in the Counseling field forabout 20 years. I feel this gives me a extra edge on communicating and relating to the Athletes. Also I've had the opportunity to play and Coach basketball on the Proffesional to high school level.

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

My pricing is on a sliding scale. It based on the age and level of training services.

How did you get started teaching?

After I stop playing competitively trying to pursue a Overseas Professional career, I was asked by my cousin to come to his gym and workout with his guys. At the time there was a several NBA and Div. 1 athletes training there. One of those players was Univ. of Maryland and future NBA First round pick Steve Francis. So going through the process of training and preparing him for the draft, I feel in Love in the process.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with NBA, Overseas Professionals, College, High School; all the way down to 6 years olds.  I personally Group train a couple of high level AAU programs NBA player Carmelo Anthony's (Nike Team Melo) and couple other area programs. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I've participated for the last 3 years in the Legendary Capital Classic High School Boys and Girls All Star game. I also have been a part of Hall of Famer Allen Iverson All American Roundball Classic for the last 3 years.

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

I would tell them to ask or check to see what successes have thier past athletes experienced.

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

What I'm I trying to accomplish in the sport of Basketball.
