    Just following up. I did in fact take 5 lessons and while I did notice improvement, I had more success with my next instructor. Appreciated the help improving my game. I am also not crazy about the notion of not being able to provide a review after 3 lesson (I took 5). I think if you take 3 hour long lessons, you have a pretty good feel on whether it's working or not. I did feel like it was working but I would have to say I had more improvement with my current teacher.

    Signed with Ken to teach my wife. Lessons have not started yet, but wanted to comment on his responsiveness to all my questions. Ken has so far shown to be very understanding of the level at which he needs to begin teaching. I have been impressed with his proposed methodology to teaching the golf basics. Looking forward to working with Ken soon.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My pricing is simple: My home court, $60. Your home court $ 70 per hour of actual lesson. I also offer a $10 discount for each lesson when you pre-pay and purchase a five lesson package, which I highly recommend for those with little experience. I am certified by the Texas Department of Education in Pedagogy (the art and science of teaching) which enables me to meet the standards established by the PGA.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Observation and patience is my strength. But with a beginner, I usually start with a lesson on putting and chipping to establish some transferable methods and fundamentals to the various types of shots. I follow this lesson with one on pitching, next the short irons, then long irons and fairway clubs, and lastly a lesson on driver. i offer an optional lesson on the golf course to address strategy and impart knowledge of course design.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Today with the internet it is not that hard. Additionally, I passed my State Board of Education Certification Exams in Pedagogy, which the art and science of teaching. A golf instructor has the experience and talent to shift through all the plethora of advise and fit it to the individual client.
