Basketball lessons with are unique because I focus on fundamentals. I am an encourager and not the type of coach who will motivate by yelling at student athletes. I teach the game in a manner in which can be easily learned and picked up. I know from past experience with other students that progress will come in a short time. Lessons with me are fun, encouraging and helpful.

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !

I have played basketball for 14 years now and I am a strong believer in knowing the fundamentals and building out your game from there. I will help you be the best basketball player you can be.

I have been trained by Kobe Bryant's cousin during my time in basketball leagues in Middle School and High School.

Through the last 9 years I cared for, tutored, and coached students ages 7-18 . I am a sixth-seventh grade teacher and I coach basketball in my spare time. I also have my own basketball skills program. I majored in education and coaching at Hardin-Simmons University as I assisted the coaching program there as well. I have a certification in English Language Arts that assists in tutoring others in writing as well. I am also a prior athlete. I understand that once in awhile people could use a little help to develip. I look forward to assisting following up and possibly assisting you.

My brother’s basketball skills were taken to the next level with Ms. Williams. We have seen great improvement over the past year and are extremely satisfied with the coaching and ethic she encourages in them. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to enroll their child in one on one skills lessons.
