Methodology

I base my teaching on the student. You cannot teach all students the same way. Everyone is an individual and unique. I am very patient and my number one goal is to help my student learn, feel confident and improve their skill level be it strength, flexibility, movement and acro ability. I don't really have a preference on what event I like the most when coaching.

Background

I have coached recreational and competitive gymnastics for 46 yrs. I have ran gymnastics programs for city recreational programs and private gyms, and dance studios. I have worked with the public for 35 years, currently full time employee for a local university and coach competitive gymnasts. I have worked with J.O. and Xcel programs, beg. level to advanced.
