My Teaching Philosophy

I find the most effective and healthy way for students to reach their highest potential is by teaching with compassion, encouragement, positivity, and fun. By creating a safe place for exploration and growth, you learn quickly that you can trust me, and your vulnerability will lead to the kind of strength and skill that you will be able to carry on throughout your entire life, far beyond our lessons.
