UW-Rock County (General)
When I was 6 years old my step-dad introduced me to the game of basketball. Over the years we spent countless hours watching college and professional games together. We discussed the coaching styles of each coach, analyzed the players and broke down all the plays. I started playing organized basketball in 5th grade and continued throughout high school. Although I got a lot of playing time, I also spent a lot of time on the bench next to the coaches. I believe it was there, on the bench, that I realized I would be better served if I focused my attention on studying and teaching the game.
My teaching style is grounded in the basic fundamentals: running, jumping, passing, dribbling and shooting. I believe if you start with and continually work on these skills, you will develop into a player who will be of greater value to the teams on which you play.
The first lesson will start with a skill assessment. This will give me an insight into the type of player you are. Based on your skill level and goals, we will develop a personalized plan together that draws from the basic fundamentals, and work towards advancing your skills as a basketball player through the use of specific drills and exercises. In combination with physical activity, we will also discuss game situations and the knowledge needed to execute successful plays. I will help you play your game and coach you for success on and off the court. When I was 6 years old my step-dad introduced me to the game of basketball.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
My experience consists of coaching boys soccer teams age 10-12, and teaching basketball to friends and family members. I played one season of college soccer and have always had the passion to be a college basketball coach. I recently published a book to share my knowledge about learning the basic fundamentals of basketball and using goal-setting to become a better player. When tutoring, I focus on the most important goal which is to have fun while learning. We will use drills and exercises that fit your needs and experience. I will encourage the development of all players regardless of their skill level so they continue to grow as a player and enjoy their time spent on the basketball court.
