He's engaging, personable, and most importantly, actually teaches the material so my son can do it himself. He fills the holes in my son's knowledge and the mistakes in his thinking. My husband has worked in the same room where Richi works with my son, and he says Richi is the best all-around teacher we've encountered - counting all the school teachers, music teachers, coaches, etc. - in a word, phenomenal - grab this inspiring math guru if you can!
For instance, I sometimes learn best by watching, so if I ask him to show me something he readily does. Or, if I am thinking way ahead, such as how I may use a flam in a song, he doesn't get impatient and say, "we'll get to that," but instead, answers the question and talks about how it will be worked into our lessons. I highly recommend Stefano to anyone who wants to learn drums the right way.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
