My experience as a school basketball coach, student of golf instruction and parent of a special needs child make me an excellent choice to provide tutoring services for individuals. I am a recently retired engineer with a passion for sports and people. I enjoy seeing students progress in their skills and offer patience and a logical approach to the learning experience.

As an instructor, I will evaluate the students strengths and weaknesses and offer realistic mutual goals and timing to achieve them. I will also provide practice drills to work on between sessions.

As a parent of a child with cerebral palsy, I have developed the patience and skill to keep the special needs student focused and on task, set realistic goals and offer enthusiasm for success.

Having played basketball until recently and coached elementary, high school and recreation teams, I have developed programs that have taught fundamentals and built successful players that are also good team players.

In learning to play golf and having an engineering background, I fully understand the mechanics of the golf swing and can readily recognize any deficiencies. Rules and etiquette are also important to enjoying and succeeding in this very satisfying personal sport. Drills and other teaching techniques are also offered for those just learning to play.

My availability is flexible with most days, evenings and weekends open for instruction at a mutually acceptable location.

I look forward to working with you and most importantly, seeing you advance in your skills. You will find me to be a patient and dedicated instructor.
