” My teaching method and philosophy is based upon proven theories and time tested practices.  All instructional techniques are centered around the students current skill level as well and focusing on their desired level of improvement.  I am not a “one method” fits all teacher. I believe in using training aids to enable the student to not only comprehend changes, but to also “feel” them. I utilize many state of the art VISUAL and fact based tools in my instructional program which include a TruGolf indoor simulator and V1 Video Analysis System.”
