My Teaching Philosophy
Each student is different in many ways, from body build, swing type, to preferences. Therefore, my belief is that teaching a single method to every student will not lead to proper learning and the student reaching his or her true potential.
Due to the fact that everybody is built differently, there are different ways to swing a golf club and play golf and do it well. As an instructor, I adapt my approach to teaching each student to his or her specific learning style. Keeping in mind that not everyone has the talent, time, or desire to change certain aspects of their swings will determine my approach to that particular student.
It is important that each student lists his or her goals, both short term and long term. What do I want to accomplish? Do I have the time to accomplish what I want? Do I want more distance? Do I want to improve putting? Short game? Am I trying to play competitive or recreational? Do I have any physical limitations?
My goal is to ensure the student enjoys the game and the learning process and to play better golf, not just swing better.
This is the philosophy that I believe in and has proven to work for my students.
