Phenomenal technical in using teaching skills. He relates very well to the person receiving a lesson and is very patient.
I have taught all kinds of students aging from 4 to 70 in tennis and I've been teaching tennis for about 5 years now at country clubs and athletic clubs and private practices. I am on a college tennis team and played all throughout highschool and as for archery I have been trained by many archers from 4H champions to hunters to just recreational shooters. Either way, the only way to get a person to learn is to make it fun and understandable in a way that the student understands. You can pay the pros 60 dollars an hour or you can pay me about half that per hour for the same exact information.
I've always loved passing on my information to others, especially when it works! Teaching tennis and archery are my passions and seeing others improve from point to point it more than amazing.
First I need to see where the student stands experience wise to see what he or she is proficient in and what needs work. Then, after I determine what needs work, I will adjust the program accordingly.
I may not be "certified" but I can tell you exactly what any other professional is going to tell you for a cheaper price. Why? Because I've been trained by professionals, for both tennis and archery, for years!
I got started teaching tennis through a pro at an athletic club I belong to and I worked my way up. I got teaching archery by being offered a job at Great Lakes Outdoor Supply as a Archery Tech.
I've worked with absolutely every kind of student you can imagine.....not kidding you name the student and I've probably worked with someone with that personality/ attitude.
I would say being a "certified professional" doesn't mean that you will understand what they are trying to get you to do. Also, a higher cost per lesson certainly doesn't mean a higher quality lesson.
Just think about how it relates to what YOU want and need to know. YOU are the student and if you need something you should ask so long as it is appropriate and relevant.
