Coaches

Are you a coach? Let me know and I can add your name to the list!  Different coaches have different styles and different rates, so keep that in mind.  For learning just the basics, the analogy I give is that it doesn’t take a Math Major to teach long division.

Many resources can also be found online or in print.  A coach is an invaluable tool, but they won’t build the house for you.  You still need to put in the necessary work.
