What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
find a connection to that teacher and your learning will be enhanced. Having credentials is one thing, but coaching and teaching is a skill and an art within itself. Some are great athletes but horrible coaches. Find one you resonate with and one you can relate to so that it creates and fosters a healthy learning environment.
