Private Lessons

In Person or on the web! I’m now teaching regularly in Tucson, AZ. More convenient that Yuma was for sure, but, I know it is a bit inconvenient for many of you, SO you can also take lesson by Webcam.
Here or there. In town? Call or email and we’ll set up an in person session or two.

Not near here, can’t find a teacher in your area? I’m not coming to your town? Don’t fret - go to the web! We can make it happen one on one by webcam. I use both Google Video Chat and Skype to teach you in person and at your convenience in the comfort of your own home.

Your place AND mine!
