Teaching Philosophy: To be a great teacher is to be a great explainer. Being the greatest player in the world does not make you a great teacher if you can not get the information out and into someone else's mind.

Mastery is a lifelong experienec and experiences should be enjoyed along the way. Practice makes it permanent.
