Open, accurate communication and flexibility are the keys to successful tutoring. Working together, we remove obstacles to learning and clear the path ahead. Because we begin with clear goals and measurable objectives, students are able to accurately assess progress, and achievement is visible.

Softball

Softball

In the past, I have played on a fastpitch softball team, pitching at a high level of competition (traveling team). I have also coached girls' softball teams, both slow pitch and fast pitch. I enjoy coaching teams, as well as individual players. I focus on teamwork, dedicated and regular practice, self-confidence, strategy, and technique. My coaching includes more subtle strategies, as players advance, e.g., how to not annoy umpires and delayed stealing techniques.
