What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We discuss thier needs and talk about a direction. Sometimes we start from the ground up and sometimes jump ahead. I access and we take it from there. I want them to be happy but learn at the same time. For young children, I try to keep it fun. One week for me one for them. Adults tend to want to dive in. So we work together to achieve their goals.
