Basketball

Coaching is easily one of my top 3 most evolved abilities; both for a team and for individuals.
I have attending camps, played on and coached for several years in all the sports I have listed interest in. I have acquired multiple varsity letters.

I have plenty of stories, but from a coaching aspect, here is my best: at the end of a middle school age important hockey game which I was coaching, we needed a goal with less than a minute left. I rotated in our decisively worst player who I had been working with. Parents and teammates were obviously mad and if they hadn't respected me, they most certainly would have been yelling in my face. But the child's dad who he rarely sees was watching intently, my player had been calmly following the strategy and his role all game, and he was the most rested player. So I felt the game and put him in. After the puck found his stick, I yelled "shoot!!" as loud as I could and this insecure kid BLASTED in a shot from center. Everyone on our side went crazy and his dad practically hugged me. A beautiful moment in several people's lives and more important to me than my own accolades, such as the time I scored the winning goal in our team's soccer championship.

In addition:

During pick up games, my team usually wins AND my teammates have more fun when I am the "team captain".

I have been a huge sports fan all my life: playing, watching, motivating, studying, and coaching. I learned the fundamentals and studied the game...not just watched the ball as most viewers do. Anyone who has watched a game with me has been impressed with my insight that is nearly always more accurate and precise than the announcers who are calling it. For example: in football, I can call an incomplete or complete pass before it leaves the QB's hands and am right way more often than not.

I understand these sports and all aspects involved.

Whether it be motivating, running drills, discovering patterns and making on the fly adjustments, and tweaking techniques to increase the quality and potential of a certain player, I am your man.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
