*** Lesson Details ***
I want each student to feel excited and energetic about there lessons. In other words, I want them to have FUN!!! If at anytime that is not happening I want the student to let me know, because that is very important to me. I want our relationship to be open and as honest as possible, because that makes me a better teacher and helps them learn better. My goal for the student is that they learn all the skills needed to then teach someone else and to continue to teach themselves without me. I believe that a great teacher teaches the student how to be independent from them, not to stay dependent on them! This takes time, but I hope every student will someday achieve this goal!
