    Master Barrett is super fun and knowledgeable. He gives each student personal attention and adapts his teachings to their needs and age, so everybody learns.

    Master Barrett is a joy to work with! He has been a wonderful Professional! Our Grandsons really like him (we do too!) - respect him and look forward to going to class. Aydan, the oldest, has lost weight and gained confidence! He is more agile and respectful at home too! He even sleeps better! 😁 Our youngest Grandson has been diagnosed with ADHD and has some behavioral and speech issues. We thought that he was only going to last for the first 30 minutes of class with his attention deficit problems well.... he has lasted the entire class time for the past three classes! Master Barrett keeps hi focused, corrected and inspired! He works magic with him and the other students and we could not be happier! Thank you from the bottom of this ole Mimi’s heart! 😁.

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

I start with a personal analysis, which is just a few questoons to see what your goals are, how I can best help you, and if There are any medical concerns before we get started. Then give you a quick to and guidlines. Get a top on you. We bow in and get started.

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

How did you get started teaching?

I was inspired by those whom taught me. Being able to affect someone's life by just a little can create great outcomes. For example, if I roll a ballstraight it ends up in one destination. If I change the the direction by even one degree, the ball ends up in a completely different destination.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with virtually every kind of student you can think of and been successful with them.

Students with adhd, asbergers, autism, childrens 2.5 yrs of age and up, elderly, amputees, virtully every walk of life vices included.

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

Make sure they are more about YOUR training.
