Teaching people how to improve their SKILL is the core of my passion teaching style. Test the skill, teach to improve performance, student trains, and then we retest. This is called blended learning.
I teach all parts of the game to men, women and juniors.
if you are looking for a teacher to teach you how to lower your scores, I am happy to teach you from game like training. I am a teacher that will truly learn from my new rules of coaching how to build their SKILLS that require feedback from drills and repetition.
I am a certified LPGA T&CP Member.
Golf is so much more than a game, it is a lifetime,of self learning, discipline, commitment, and life skills.
I help people do two things. They choose whether they are learning to play or playing to perform.
Then I make a plan for the student how to move forward.
Val did a masterful job of matching her instruction to my needs.
Val is very knowledgeable and her positive influence is inspiring. She is a pleasure to be around. It is always a happy day to have a lesson with Val. You know she will share her wisdom with you and you are going to learn something new every time. For me it means reducing my handicap and having more fun on the golf course.
Val is an incredible instructor. Kind, compassionate and thoughtful. I am a complete beginner just taking up golf at age 62 after retiring this past spring. I'm so happy and grateful to have found her. She has taught me the physical mechanics in a way I can understand. As a visual learner she has adapted my lessons to specific things I can work on and explains in a way I can absorb. Additionally, she focuses her instruction on the complete person by helping with the mental and strategic part of the game. As a woman, I appreciate her identification of "self-talk" and keeping a positive attitude. She blends her roles as a teacher, advisor, life coach and mentor into each lesson. More than anything, I have come to think of Val as a trusted friend because I'm learning so much each week. I can give my highest recommendation as she is a gifted teacher!
Along with being enjoyable and approachable, I super-appreciate that Val pays very close attention to exactly what I am doing in my golf swing. I’ve cycled through various local instructors and travel from Seattle to Snohomish for Val’s lessons because I trust that she’s giving me a pathway to improvement based on my specific issues instead of just following a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction for all her students.
