Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Speaking, preferrably over the phone, with the student in advance to get on the same page with the kexpectations, understanding the equipment that is available, ingredients to be used or dietary restrictions that may be present. I'll spend as much time as necessary prior to the lesson to make you feel comfortable and get you excited for your lesson!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My training came in the kitchen. Having cooked in 2 different restaurants in Jamaica, Belize and here in the States, on the job training, gave me the skills needed to teach other people who want to uncover their passion for making gret homemade meals from the comfort of home.
How did you get started teaching?
I just always enjoyed showing people how to get around in a kitchen. Give a person a fish and they eat for a day but if you teach a person to fish . . .
What types of students have you worked with?
All ages at a variety of skill levels
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure you and the teacher are on the same page about what you're looking for out of the lesson. Whether you're looking to create dishes from scatch or looking for techniques and answers onw how to cook certain items. You should be comfortable having a conversation with your teacher to ask anything you need in order for you to get the most out of your experience.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Is there any kitchen equipment that I'm missing, is there an alternate way to make the dish if I'm missing any of the ingredients/equipment/gadgets/etc - there's always more than one way to get something done in the kitchen.
Ask for an ingredient list and amounts to have ready before the lesson.
