She has been teaching my wife and me ballroom dancing for the last 15 years, when we began as total beginners. Although her knowledge of underlying dancing fundamentals seems boundless, it is her exceptional teaching skills that make it such a delight to be among her student population. She:
. rapidly develops a close relationship with her students, and is always willing to listen to them when there are problems;
. is patient, caring, and kind, with a keen sensitivity to her students' differences
. has a deep understanding of the pace and capacity of her students, tailoring her instruction to meet each learner's needs - male and female and couples;
. loves ballroom dancing and is dedicated to teaching it, always demonstrating a commitment to her students' success.
Great teachers are hard to find. She is one of the outstanding few.
