Teaching Philosophy:

Teaching and coaching has always been a major part of my life since I was a teenager and working with elementary school children at camps and after school programs. A student-centered method of teaching has allowed me to be successful in teaching many different variation of sport throughout my life. I believe anyone can learn a sport that they could participate and enjoy even after my contact with the student is over.

  • Methods of teaching sport at a developmental age
