Her teaching style is not method driven. She strives to address each individual’s needs by assessing their unique abilities while adhering to principles of sound-swing mechanics.She believes in the importance of staying current and continues studying the golf swing by continually attending PGA educational seminars, conferences, TPI seminars, and seminars from other top professionals.
My teaching philosophy is to teach each student how to improve their game so they can play better and enjoy golf more, regardless of their skill level. Since all students and swings are not the same, they are physically different and learn differently. In addition, everyone has unique goals in mind. It is imperative for the students to receive highly personalized instruction to maximize their potential.
I approach each student and focus on the fundamentals of the golf swing and the game of golf, while recognizing individual abilities, objectives, experiences, and personalities. The key to a successful learning experience is comfort and developing communication between student and teacher.
There are no secrets to learning golf. Understanding the fundamentals and enjoying golf is the key to success.
