About this pro

Progress is the only real goal when teaching. I care to make sure your understanding is solid, even if your knowledge becomes more than your ability.

I only teach what I know. In that way, I can give the guarantee that what I show you/teach you will work because I myself have done it.

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

Getting to know personality and what if  any uncomforts and fears to give me a good idea of where I stand with guiding the client and what walls I'm going to run into. 

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

I, myself, still train though no longer an active competitor. My experience to date is 17 years of hands on coaching and teaching. For gymnastics, I've attended clinics in multiple gyms so as not to be close minded about methods and  tactics. I've also been to region 7 congress and learned from the higher ups methods they've used to coach world champions. For martial arts, I've traded knowledge and experienced techniques first hand from teachers whose reputations speak for themselves. 

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

For gymnastics, the gym I use charges $3 dollars per 15 minute session. So an hour would be charged a fee of $12 as well as whatever rate I deem fair based off the level and skill set that a gymnast is working on. I. E. A lower level gymnast would be charged a lower rate of service than a higher level. For martial arts related training, the space can be almost anywhere and the price stays the same in most cases.

How did you get started teaching?

My second year as a gymnast, I became assistant coach for my own team as I had a knack for improvising and developing drills for progress. When I graduated from the program I caoched my former team for five years. As a martial artist, I waited much longer before I began teaching and even then I do not do it often.

What types of students have you worked with?

For gymnastics, i've coached ages 5 to adult and both male and female. I've only ever taught mature minded adults amd young adults when it comes to martial arts.

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

Be honest. It makes things a lot easier for both parties.

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

What they want, where they want it to take them, and if they are truly willing to commit to a regiment that will take a way their free time.
